The Matilda Piercing

Rick, who describes himself as “an old and rusted piercer from Rome, Italia” (currently at The Ten Bells), wrote me with a photo of a unique piercing he did a while back and was wondering if it had a specific name. It’s basically a vertical lobe, but done with an unusual placement. The jewelry is a curved barbell, so the jewelry is barely even in the ear, and is almost more of a surface piercing on the neck that just happens to exit between the anti-tragus and tragus. He calls it the “Matilda Piercing”, and I’ve never heard another name for it, so that’s good enough for me!
