Previously, "cartilage piercing" automatically redirected to the article on "conch piercing." This is quite inaccurate as the two terms are far from interchangable. A cartilage piercing can refer to any number of ear and nose piercings. Realistically, those outside the body mod community often use the term "cartilage piercing" colloquially to denote a helix piercing. Without going into too much detail I provided a quick summary of different cartilage piercings with appropriate links.
