In the 128th episode of DaVo's Youtube series Body Piercing Basics, he discusses what steps you should take before starting a multi-piercing Ear Piercing Project.
What to consider:
Is it a new project or are you combining existing piercing?
What piercings will work with your anatomy?
What style of jewelry do you want to wear?
The Shape of your ear?
Are you going to want to change the jewelry?
What color of materials look best with your skin tone
Pattern / constellation style ear flats:
Decide if you want a centerpiece
Build off the alignment of existing piercing or create a pattern
Decide on jewelry style and size beforehand
combine different sizes, shapes, gems, and colors to make it seem unified
If the top of the ear bows outward or has a fold to it, consider matching the placement.
Mark out complete placement and take a photo.
Industrials, Tridents, and Orbits:
May require bending the barbells to match the piercing angles
Greatly increases the risk of issues
Orbit piercings have to be perfectly spaced.
The angle of the piercing is just as important as the placement
May find that the jewelry is uncomfortable to wear
Often adding jewelry that is uniform with the project reduces the distraction of older piercings.
May have to abandon old piercings if they interfere with the new project.
Consider Stacking additional piercings to older piercings to create a new pattern and look.
