Before the piercing, our in-store piercing expert will take you through all you need to know about the process and the forms that need to be signed.  For the actual piercing, your ear will be cleaned with a special solution and then the piercing area is marked, if you want to change the positioning, this is completely up to you. We use the Inverness Piercing System, which is a hand-pressured device using individual cartridges.

Remember: we only pierce the lobe and cartilage area. The ear is pierced (it only takes a second) and is then repeated on the other side. And voilà, you have pierced ears.

You just had your ears pierced, now what? Use these tips to help you through the healing period.

Earlobe Piercing: Leave the piercing earrings in for 6 weeks

Cartilage Piercings: Leave the piercing earrings in for 12 weeks

Clean Hands: Always be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before touching your ears or earrings.

Cleaning Tips: Gently slide your earring back and forth while cleaning to help the solution reach inside your piercing.

Turn Turn Turn: Gently rotate your piercing earrings at least 3x’s a day, ideally after you have applied your Inverness Ear Care Solution.

Brush Carefully: Be extra careful not to catch your piercing earring when brushing your hair.

Protect: Avoid irritating your piercing with products such as hair spray, shampoo, soap, perfume, or cosmetics. After using any of these, clean your piercing with your Inverness Ear Care Solution.

Warm Weather Tip: Protect your piercing from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat. Avoid getting sunscreen in your piercing. If you do, rinse with clean water, and reapply your Inverness Ear Care Solution.

Sports Tip: Athletes- before you get pierced, ask if you are permitted to protect a new piercing with a plaster or sports tape during games and practice. If not, plan to have your ears pierced in the off-season.

Remember: Pain, redness and swelling are not a normal result of ear piercing and can lead to infection. Should pain, redness or swelling appear any time after 24 hours after the piercing, remove the earring and see your physician immediately.

This is extremely urgent with cartilage piercing, as very serious infections and/or complications can result.
