Ear Piercing FAQs

1. What type of ear piercings do you offer?

We only do earlobe piercings. This is the safest place to pierce with the lowest incidence of complications. We do not pierce any other part of the ear or any other part of the body.

2. Should I get my child's ears pierced?

Ear piercing is not a medical necessity. The decision to get your child's ears pierced is based on personal and cultural preferences.

3. How early can I get my child's ears pierced?

We recommend you wait until your child has received her first set of immunizations by the age of two months.

4. Do you use a piercing gun?

No. Our instrument is a medical grade piercer. EVERY part of the instrument that comes in contact with the ears is disposable. The earrings are packaged singly and are completely encapsulated so there is no cross contamination whatsoever.

5. Do you use gold earrings?

No. It is documented that 10% of the population are allergic to gold. We use medical grade earrings which include medical plastic which contains 0% nickel or titanium coated earrings. This makes the risk of an allergic reaction almost negligible.

6. How long should I keep the ear piercing earrings on for?

6 weeks. This is how long it will take an ear lobe piercing to heal. You should wear earrings in your newly pierced ears for the first year as this will prevent the diameter of the hole from shrinking.

7. Do I have to be a part of the practice in order to get my ears pierced?

No. This service is open to everyone.

8. What are the age limits?

We offer ear piercing in babies from 2 months, teens and adults.

9. What is the cost for this service?

$70, cash only. This includes the earrings.
