Caflon Ear Piercing - £30.00 (20-30 min)
The Caflon ear piercing system is safe, hypoallergenic and sterile.
A wide choice of earrings are available, set in either 24ct gold or silver look (rhodium plated stainless steel). I also stock titanium which is recommended for those who are very sensitive or who have been unable to tolerate other metals against the skin (there is an additional £5 charge for titanium earrings). This intolerance is commonly due to nickel.
Please note ears are pierced with the stud itself which is fired through the lobe with a piercing gun, not a needle. Although not painful piercing is a little uncomfortable! You can purchase a topical anaesthetic cream (Ametop) from Boots chemist which needs to be applied approximtely 30-45 minutes before your appointment. The lobe then needs to be covered with cling film to aid the development of the anaesthetic. Ametop is tetracaine 40mg/g maunfactured by Smith and Nephew. Please note this will not numb the area fully but it will help in easing discomfort.
I am qualified and insured to pierce the lobe only. I have been piercing ears for 12 years now and have be-jewelled hundreds of ears!
The price includes earrings and aftercare solution.
The minimum age for ear piercing is 7 years. Those aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Please don't hesitate to call if you have further questions.
