Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Conch Piercing
The ocean is your home away from home, Cancer. You feel most at ease whenever you're lounging by the beach, or really any body of water for that matter.

You'll always have a piece of the ocean with you wherever you go, thanks to this piercing.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Daith Piercing
Always the center of attention, you never shy away from the spotlight. You crave adoration and admiration from your peers at all hours of the day. You're a pretty flashy person who is one to stand out in the crowd, which is why the daith piercing is right up your alley. It stands out more than any other piercing, and it's usually some sort of extravagant gem. All eyes will be on you with this bad boy on your ear.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Second Lobe
When it comes to life, you're not much of a risk-taker. You prefer to stick to the status quo, because you fear what might go wrong if you don't. An out there or adventurous piercing just isn't in your cards, Virgo. That's why opting for the simple second lobe piercing is the way to go. It won't hurt that much, but it will be a nice addition to your ears.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Snug Piercing
Gracious and fair-minded, no other sign is obsessed with balance and symmetry as you are, Libra. Partnership is also incredibly important to you, as you're not one to ever be seen out alone. A snug piercing is right for you, because of those very reasons. It looks like two piercings, meaning it'll never get lonely when it has its better half on the opposite side of your cartilage. And it's as balanced as piercings come.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Dermal Piercing
You're a total mystery to most, Scorpio. You never reveal too much about yourself and prefer to keep your secrets locked within, because you fear what people will do with telling information about you. A dermal piercing is right up your alley. It's a piercing that only has one visible point, so you can't see where it ends. This secret little piercing will remind everyone that some things are better kept hidden below the surface.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Industrial Piercing
You're a free spirit who goes every which way the wind takes you, Sagittarius. You wander the world to discover new lands, and yourself in the process. An industrial piercing would suit you, because you could turn it into an arrow piercing pointing towards what lies ahead for you. Plus, your sign is represented by the Archer, which means an arrow definitely speaks to your adventurous soul. It definitely is on the more painful end of piercings, but you're brave enough to not flinch when getting it done.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Forward Helix Piercing
A responsible and disciplined sign, you work hard so that those closest to you don't have to. While others consider you to be too strict and boring, you've been known to let loose every now and then. This is why a forward helix piercing would work for you. It's not as traditional as a lobe piercing, but it's not as outrageous as a daith piercing. You can keep the studs pretty simple and even relatively well-hidden behind your hair, if you don't want them to be seen.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Rook Piercing
You're a breed all your own, Aquarius. There really is no one else out there quite like you, which is why you need an ear piercing that best represents your offbeat personality. That, dear Aquarius, would be the rook piercing. A fun and rare piercing, not many people dare to rock the rook. Plus, it's in a great place to make the healing process that much easier.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Auricle Piercing
Compassionate and artistic, you tend to live in your own little world. Oftentimes, reality weighs you down and causes you to hide away from everyone else. You need your alone time more than anyone else. But you're also a whimsical and exciting sign who's ruled by romance. An auricle piercing is one that plays to all aspects of your personality. You can keep it simple, or you can rock a lavish gem. Heck, you can even connect it to one of your lobe piercings, which is really what it's there for.
