The forward helix is a small protrusion of cartilage located on the outer rim of the ear, just above the tragus (the small projection in front of the ear canal). It is a popular location for piercings, as it is relatively easy to pierce and can be used to hold a variety of jewelry styles. Some people may choose to have their forward helix pierced for aesthetic purposes, while others may do so as a form of self-expression or personal style.
If you are considering getting a forward helix piercing, it is important to research the procedure and any potential risks or complications beforehand. It is also important to visit a reputable piercing studio or professional piercer and follow their aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of infection.
