With origins in alternative and punk culture, ear piercings have become increasingly popular in recent times. Piercings are an integral part of cutting-edge design looks, worn by our favourite celebrities as well as on the catwalk, it’s clear that an evergrowing number of people are wishing to join the trend. However, there are still a lot of unanswered questions around the subject of piercings, therefore, Avinas brings to the market a range of cool and stylish piercings.

A few more details about piercings

Helix, tragus, conch… Behind the veil of this technical jargon are actually the different areas of your ear that can be pierced.

In general, one starts by piercing the lobe, but there are about ten zones which can be pierced. The earring must therefore be adapted to the chosen piercing area and you must also take into account the healing time, which varies depending on the style of earring you wish to go for.

Where should I get my piercing done?

A trip to the pharmacy or the jeweller’s is often common for first lobe piercings, but we advise you to use the services of a professional piercer for greater precision as well as expert advice. The professional piercer is there to answer your questions, guide you in the choice of earrings, as well as inform you about the aftercare procedures.

Avinas works with certified piercers and offers you appointments, which are bookable in advance to carry out your needle piercing in a pleasant and safe environment in the center of Geneva.

Which part of the ear for a first piercing?

Here is a description of the different parts of the ear that can be pierced, as well as the healing time that corresponds to each area. In general, we start with the bottom of the ear with a double or triple piercing of the lobe but the piercing of the helix is also one of the most popular areas.
