I was messing around with the Desmos Graphing Calculator, and I came up with this result. This is made up of multiple circles, but I was wondering if there is a specific name I should call this shape/figure.

Thanks!

It is a finite version of the so-called Hawaiian Earing. More pictures from Google Images.

These circles are all co-tangential at $(0,0)$ to x-axis. In this case $ r \sin \psi = c$ where $ c$ is uniformly incremented. $\psi$ is angle of radial line to the circle curve.
