If you’re considering a piercing for you or your child, we recommend learning about the piercing process before you choose your piercing location.
A few things to consider…
Select a location that is able to provide two associates to pierce your child’s ears simultaneously. The Inverness System is ideal for babies because it is extremely fast and quiet. Simultaneous piercings make the process even easier for children and their parents.
Only Inverness piercing earrings have the patented Safety Back™ to shield your little one from the earring’s sharp piercing tip.
The average healing time is 6 weeks for an earlobe piercing and 12 weeks for a cartilage piercing. We recommend that you leave your piercing earrings in and follow your aftercare instructions for 6 weeks after an earlobe piercing and 12 weeks after a cartilage piercing. You should only switch into new earrings after the healing period. Newly pierced ears are very sensitive and require special care and attention. If you take your earrings out for any length of time during the healing period, the holes may close or you may find it to be very difficult to re-insert earrings into a piercing hole that has not fully healed.
Q: Can I bring my own earrings and have them put in my child's ears?
A: Unfortunatly no, because we use pre-loaded sterile earrings to ensure the safest piercing possible.
Q: What do you do that is so different from having my child's ears pierced at the mall?
A: First is experience. Our staff is highly trained and perform ear piercings on a regular basis.
Q: At what age do you start to pierce ears?
A: The earliest we will pierce ears is after the first set of immunizations have been administered at the two month visit. If you do not get immunizations for your infant we will not be able to pierce their ears.
Q: Is it fine to go swimming after getting your ears pierced?
A: The first two weeks are when your new piercings are most susceptible to infection so swimming during this time does carry some risk.
