Elite Ink Studios Ear Piercing Chart

Elite Ink Award Winning Body Piercing

10. Tragus piercing:Tragus is a part of our ear which is located at the opening of the ear and is formed of a fairly thick part of the ear cartilage. The process of tragus piercing involves small gauge piercing needles and the jewelry usually worn in the tragus is of the form of captive bead rings, curved barbells, or posts. Though it is a comparatively robust form of ear piercing, but it may turn irritable at times. Wearing earphones during the heal time can be problematic in this type of piercing, however the chances of tearing or stretching are low.

9. Anti tragus piercing:The anti tragus is located opposite parallel to the tragus towards the inside. It is kind of a protruding outward ridge placed lateral to the canal.  It is a distinct and unique style of ear piercing that will surely catch the eye of people.

8.Rook piercing:Rook piercing is regarded as one of the most painful and difficult to perform ear piercing. However, once done, it imparts you style that no other ear piercing can. This is because of the fact, that depending upon the ear shape, the rook may not be protruding enough to perform the piercing, plus the piercing has to be done in different ear cartilages. It occurs in the folding cartilage separating inner and outer conch and is therefore vulnerable to tearing. It is not possible to carry it out in ears that do not have this fold.

7.Daith piercing:The term “daith” has been coined from Hebrew language meaning wisdom. Daith piercing occurs in the inner ear cartilage that is located just above the ear canal opening. This inner ear cartilage is perforated to give way to thin wired jewelry.  Small bead ring type jewelries are worn in daith piercings that make it look cool and trendy.

6.Conch piercing:Conch ear piercing has been acquiring speedy popularity in recent years. There are two conchs present in our ear, the inner and outer one. While the piercing of the inner conch is performed at the ear cartilage’s centre, it requires an advanced and trained profession with special and thicker piercing needles. It is stylish since it lets you sport a classy gem or a barbell ear accessory. Outer conch piercing involves piercing of the outer cartilage of our ear and lesser complex mechanisms. However, conch piercing should not be confused with the helix piercing as the former is performed on the flat portion of the cartilage.

5. Industrial piercing:Industrial piercing is a more noticeable and out of the box type of ear piercing. It is often also referred to as Scaffold piercing. What happens in case of industrial piercing is that two punches are made, on the helix or the ear cartilage and a single long piece of jewelry is worn in them, connecting the two. In case of a vertical scaffold, the holes are carved in a vertical direction comparatively, and a similar long jewelry item is worn. The two ends of the long jewelry have two metal balls so as to prevent the jewelry piece from slip out. This kind of piercing has shown graphs of increasing popularity lately.

4. Anti helix:The anti helix ear piercing is also referred to as the “Snug piercing”. Snug piercing is carried out on the cartilage inside the ear rim which is basically a vertical fold. These piercings appear comparatively shallow to other forms. Curved ball bearing jewelry or circular rings often adorn the snug piercing. The anti helix is placed adjacent to helix and same jewels can be used in both piercings to give an attractive look. Anti helix piercing may not be as popular as helix piercing since the latter is more convenient, still there are many round the globe who have absolute love towards anti helix piercings.

3. Lobe piercing:Lobe piercing is the simplest and most popular form of ear piercing where the lobe at the bottom of the ear is perforated and jewelry is fixed in. It is also regarded the least painful of all as there is no cartilage involved and the number of nerve endings are less in comparison with other parts of the ear. It has been adopted as a trend-cum-tradition by people of most of the world communities. The widest range of earrings is available for ear lobe piercings, of varying lengths, colors and designs. Actually, this traditional form of ear piercing witnessed its popularity heights around three decades ago and since then, there has been no looking back. Multiple piercings and stretched piercing are variations of the ear lobe piercing.

2.Earlobe gauging:Lobe stretching or ear lobe gauging is one of the newest trends in the field of trendy ear piercings. Earlobe piercings that feature bigger diameter gems or piercings big enough to look through are new and unique. Among teens particularly, their influence has been prominent. The process involves stretching of healed lobe piercings to accommodate large sized earrings repeatedly in steps over a long time. However, the risk is high, as chances of tearing and bleeding exist, if careful and correct stretching is not undertaken. Plugs or eyelets being worn as stretched lobe jewelry are common. When it comes to cartilage piercings, dermal punching helps since stretching can lead to scars. Dermal punching is a technique of cutting out holes in cartilages to fix in large sized gems.

1. Helix:The helix piercing is the most popular kind of ear piercing where punctures are made in the upper ear, towards the rim, better known as the forward helix. Helix offers enough space for multiple piercings which are definitely in trend. Usually piercing guns are employed for puncturing the helix but bigger needles may also be used by a few. The helix piercing has found favoritism in the Western world where men and women both are least reluctant to go for it. Helix piercing is the leading fashion, you can’t be hanging out without noticing people with those attractive helix jewelry. Helix piercings often bear two ball earrings, metal rings, studs, beads or gem closed earrings of different colors. Multiple helix piercings forming colorful or bling patterns look really cool.

Detroit Lions fan gets ‘Super Bowl 2015 Champs’ tattoo, hopes for prophetic ink on Friday the 13th

Click here to view the videos of the tattoo being done!

Detroit Lions 2015 Superbowl Tattoo at Elite Ink in Centerline, MI. WDIV

Detroit Lions 2015 Superbowl Tattoo at Elite Ink in Centerline, MI.

Morian decided to call the Dave and Chuck The Freak Show, which airs on 101 WRIF in Detroit, where he had first heard the Seattle tattoo story.  The show’s producer, James Campbell, contacted John Motyka of Elite Ink.  Soon after they  arranged  tattoo artist Rick Finney, of Elite Ink to perform the tattoo.

“Today being Friday the 13th, it’s a full moon, it just worked out,” Campbell said. “Maybe the tattoo will become a prophecy.”

So Morian woke up, put on his favorite Calvin Johnson jersey and drove to Elite Ink in Centerline. The tattoo reads “Super Bowl 2015 Champs,” and is inked permanently onto his lower left leg. The words go above and below a Lombardi Trophy and a Lions logo.

This morning he, quite literally, bled Honolulu blue.

“I saw that out in Seattle and I thought it was pretty neat,” Morian said Friday afternoon, his new ink still fresh after spending just over an hour in the chair. “I love the Lions; I always have. So I figured why not see if it will turn things around.

“Mentally, maybe it will get everybody together. I don’t know. I didn’t really think it was going to be as big as it seems to be now.”

Morian’s childhood home was less than 10 miles from Ford Field, although he’s never been able to go to a game. Instead, Morian, 23, grew up watching games with his father in Hazel Park.

“My Dad watched them all the time growing up. We would always watched them on Thanksgiving,” said Morian, who is considering the possibility of getting the tattoo altered annually with a new year until it happens. “Everybody loves the Lions and then everybody hates the Lions.

“It’s mixed emotions for everybody, but I’ve always loved them.”

There will no mixed emotions in the streets of Detroit should the Lions — who have never even been to the Super Bowl — win it all in 2015.

“Obviously the tattoo won’t totally be responsible,” Campbell said. “But if the Lions do well and they make it to the Super Bowl, this could be what caused it. Or it could just be a guy who’s got a Super Bowl tattoo on his leg for the Lions that never really sees fruition.”

Tattoo removal can put the past behind you | The Detroit News/Elite Ink Tattoos

Check out the following article pertaining to tattoo removal:

From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140119/METRO01/301190012#ixzz2qxNMhVYD

One option that many people turn to instead of complete removal is fading the tattoo to the point where it can be covered up by a different design, said tattooist John Motyka, owner and operator of Elite Ink Tattoo Studios, which has tattoo parlors in Warren, Center Line and Dearborn Heights.

“Before getting a tattoo, the person should consult with the tattooist and see if they are capable of taking on the project and if it’s what they really want,” he said.

In his 22 years in the business, Motyka says he has seen a definite shift in attitudes toward tattooing.

“More than ever, it is a form of self-expression,” he said. “When I started in this business in the early ’90s, it was considered a form of adult entertainment. Now tattooing is a legitimate industry.”

As for undoing the ink, the best thing to do, says Motyka, is go into it accepting that it is forever and plan ahead.

“In my opinion, removal is not an option if you are putting a tattoo on your body,” said Motyka. “As long as people take the impulse nature out of getting a tattoo and do their homework, more often than not, there’s less chance of buyer’s remorse.”
