Varying in pain levels from person to person and often done with either a bar or a stud, helix piercings are a great way to add some style to your everyday look. These piercings are not only relatively cheap and inexpensive, but they can be implemented very easily. Moreover, since the helix makes up for the entire outer rim of your ear, there are a lot of different helix styles, looks, and options for those interested in getting one themselves.
To properly display some of the best helix piercing ideas, we have put together the list below. Comprised of 10 total piercings, this list should not only prove why helix piercings have become so popular as of late, but it should provide readers with some neat ideas to try on their own ears.
1. A Helix Double Ring Piercing
Double rings are one of the most common helix piercing styles, and (as you can see) they tend to look great by themselves, without any other piercings around the ear.
