Let's find out together....

1) Ear piercing: Lobo

Let's start our list with the most classic piercing: Lobo. There are those who pierced it in their early years and those who chose to do it in adulthood. The lobo is also part of tradition and is nothing more than a simple hole in the lobe that represents the softest part of our ear.

It is certainly the most common and simplest piercing we can make. It is ideal for placing gemstones and coloured earrings. Obviously, depending on the size of the lobe, it is possible to make more than one hole in the ear, which is why so many people opt for this very classic and simple type.

The lobe hole is always and only made by experts and with a needle. In fact, it has been found that using a gun is not advisable because it could cause trauma and infection. This is why it is always a good idea to rely on specialised and competent professionals. Healing times for this type of piercing are around two to three months.
