Vertical Industrial Piercing is a special type of an Industrial Piercing that goes vertically in the ear. This is considered a separate placement and a variation of the more common Industrial Piercing. As you probably know, typical Industrial Piercing consists of two separate ear cartilage piercings that are connected by the same jewelry, usually a long straight barbell known as Industrial barbell.
A typical Industrial Piercing travels on an angle and covers the ear diagonally. While this is by far the most common placement for an Industrial Piercing it is possible to have some significant variations. One of the most popular Industrial Piercing variations is a Vertical Industrial Piercing.
What is a Vertical Industrial Piercing?
A Vertical Industrial Piercing is a variation of the more common Industrial Piercing. In order to understand how it looks, it is important to know enough about the regular Industrial Piercing. Typically, an Industrial Piercing consists of two ear cartilage piercings that are connected by the same jewelry piece. For a regular Industrial Piercing, the two piercings in question are typically a helix and an anti-helix piercing. A helix piercing is a piercing on the curved part of the upper ear cartilage while an anti-helix is a piercing lower on the ear cartilage, near the ear canal.
When these two piercings are in place you can connect them with a long, straight barbell (Industrial barbell) to create and Industrial piercing. This is a regular Industrial Piercing and it goes diagonally through the ear.
However, this is not the only way to make an Industrial Piercing. Any two piercings you connect with a same barbell can become a variant of the Industrial Piercing. Perhaps the most popular of the variants is a Vertical Industrial Piercing. This is a piercing that goes vertically through the ear.
How to Make a Vertical Industrial Piercing
Since a Vertical Industrial Piercing is a variant of a regular Industrial Piercing, it resembles it in many ways. Just like a regular Industrial, a Vertical Industrial Piercing consists of two piercings that are performed on the ear cartilage. Also, just like a regular Industrial, a Vertical Industrial Piercing is create by connecting these two separate piercings with the same long straight barbell.
However, there are some notable differences. The most important difference is the placement, that is, the piercings that are connected by the same Industrial barbell. Unlike regular Industrial Piercing that uses a helix and an anti-helix ear piercings, a Vertical Industrial Piercing is created by connecting other ear cartilage piercings.
There is no one, universal way to create a Vertical Industrial Piercing, so there are some variations. In some cases, this piercing uses a helix and a conch piercing. In others, it uses a helix and a rook piercing. It is also possible to make a Vertical Industrial Piercing by connecting a rook and a daith piercing or a rook and an anti-helix piercing and so on. Basically, as long as you can make the barbell go vertically from top to bottom of the ear, you will get a Vertical Industrial Piercing.
The choice of two piercings that you wish to connect with the same Industrial barbell is yours (and your piercer’s). There are many ways to create a Vertical Industrial Piercing so you are free to experiment. This piercing looks very stylish and attractive so it will sure stand out.
One word of warning, though: in order to do it properly make sure to consult your piercer. It is always best to have the two piercings done at the same time to ensure the proper placement or else it might be difficult to connect them with the single jewelry piece.
