The rook piercing is an ear piercing through the fold of cartilage between the inner and outer conch (the anti-helix). Care must be taken with it during healing, as it is easy to contaminate (and damage) from things like telephones touching it.

The piercing was first popularized by Erik Dakota (featured in Body Play #4), who is said to have named it after a shortened version of his first name.
