Some people are shocked when we will tell them that due to safety, health and hygiene, we only use a needle when performing any piercing.
Our needles, jewellery and equipment are sterile and 100% safer than piercing guns found in high street stores.
Piercing guns can not be sterilised because they are made of plastic and can easily cause infections in your child’s ears. Gun piercings often come out wrong or ‘wonky’ due to their nature of using force rather than precision to install jewellery, therefore causing blunt force trauma.
Dr Julia Tzu of Wall Street Dermatology says “The difference is that a gun forcefully rams the earring posts through the earlobe, while a professional piercer may be more deliberate in creating the puncture, so there’s a difference in the degree of trauma sustained by the surrounding tissue.”
Children who have been to our studio often say that piercing with a needle has been less painful than their original piercing that has gone wrong with a gun.
A quick search on Google will show thousands of articles explaining why a needle is a much safer and more hygienic way of performing a piercing.
Every child that gets their ears pierced with us, although may walk in a little nervous, leaves with a big smile on their face.
We take pride on making the process as comfortable and friendly as possible, going at the pace of the child, only ever acting when they are ready.
We’ll also take time to explain everything to them from the procedure to the aftercare.
