Here's a fun fact about Kathryn Bernardo: She's a big fan of ear piercings! In fact, the actress gets a new one each time she marks a special milestone in her life. Her first-ever piercing was for Three Words to Forever (2018)—a romantic drama where she was paired with someone who isn't her reel-to-real life lover Daniel Padilla. According to Kath, it was a big adjustment for her. "I decided to [get] a piercing every [time na may] achievement ako or may big milestone sa life ko," she shared in one of her vlogs.
Since then, Kath has been sporting multiple piercings, and we're *obsessed* with them! Check out her growing collection below:

Before we dive into Kath's ear-piercing collection, here's a quick guide (or refresher) to the different types of ear piercings:
Triple lobe piercing
Soft and fleshy, the lobe is considered the ~least~ painful spot to get a piercing, so we're not surprised that Kath has multiple lobe piercings!
In 2020, she got a cluster of three-lobe piercings that's shaped like a triangle to celebrate the success of her vlog, "Everyday Kath."CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓watch nowADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓
Kath has two high-lobe piercings on her right ear, and they certainly add a *cool* touch to her ear party.
As its name suggests, a high-lobe piercing sits on the upper part of the earlobe—it's perfect for anyone who wants to level up from the traditional lobe piercings.ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓
Orbital lobe piercing
An orbital ear piercing is when two holes in the same part of the ear are connected by a hoop earring. It's unique and eye-catching, and it's known for having a short healing period (around six to eight weeks.)
Back in 2019, Kath and her co-stars in the movie The Hows Of Us, Ria Atayde and Juan Miguel Severo, got *friendship* helix piercings. ICYDK, it's a popular cartilage piercing that's placed along the upper ear area.ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓
Unfortunately, the actress shared in one of her vlogs that her helix piercing closed not once but twice. "Hindi siya meant to be," she said.
According to Kenneth Abad, a professional body piercer and tattoo artist at 55 Tinta, it will take about "10 months or maybe even a year" for helix piercings to fully heal. That said, be careful not to take your earrings out prematurely. (READ MORE: How To Make Sure Your Ear Piercings Don't Close Or Get Infected)
If you're looking for an ~unusual~ placement for your ear piercing, a rook piercing might just fit the bill! It's a cartilage piercing in the uppermost ridge of your inner ear. NGL, getting one can be painful since it's going to go through a thick layer of the cartilage. It looks so stunning, though!ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓
