I want to make sure I get the right piercing.?

So, I probably seem kind of dumb for asking this, but I'm thinking of getting a helix piercing soon and a lot of the ones I see look like this http://bodypiercingmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2015... but I want one that looks like this https://img0.etsystatic.com/038/0/5523339/il_570xN... what should I say to the person piercing it? Or is it normally pierced like the second image. Sorry and please help!

    The piercing in the first picture is what piercers refer to as more of a flat piercing. It's along the flat part of your upper cartilage. Helix piercings will go through the rim of the cartilage like the second picture. But they can be angled different ways so if that's what you want the piercing to look like maybe bring the picture. Just keep in mind the jewelry in that second picture is garbage.
