A vertical lobe piercing is a piercing, usually using a straight barbell, travelling from the top of the lobe down and exiting at the bottom of the lobe. Basically a transverse lobe piercing turned 90 degrees.
A vertical lobe is a difficult piercing to have done. Much like any cartilage piercings, this takes at least 6-8 months to heal, depending on how the person’s body reacts to the piercing, and the dedication to cleaning it. For at least several days, there is a good chance of bruising. Sea salt soaks are the method for proper healing, also after it has been fully healed.
