A 'curated ear' is a term used to describe an ear style that has been perfectly decorated.
Ear curation is a popular body modification that involves accommodating a variety of pieces, such as huggies, hoops, studs and flat backs.
It is a form of self-expression that allows individuals to showcase their personal style and creativity.
The most common types of jewellery used in ear curation include:
Huggies: Little hoop earrings hugging the earlobe.
Hoops: A round circle earring flowing through the ear, reconnecting on the other side of the ear piercing. A hoop earring generally consists of a pattern or smooth effect.
Flat backs: A flat back stud earring that sits flush against the earlobe.
Once your curated has been created to the style you desire, you can get creative with the jewellery you wear.
There are many different styles and designs to choose from so one can express their individuality by choosing jewellery that reflects their unique personality and style.
The number of ear piercings required for ear curation depends on personal preference. It is possible to have multiple piercings in each earlobe for a more unique look and obviously the more piercings you have, the more jewellery you can wear, and the more creative you can be with your ear curation, or what is also known as an 'ear party'.
Whether you have one piercing or multiple, the options are endless when it comes decorating your ears and the result is a unique and personalised look.
