Please note - The minimum age for piercing is 8 years. Those aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
£35.00 - 24ct gold and silver (stainless steel)
£38.00 - titanium
The price includes earrings and aftercare solution.
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 £3 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/cartilage with a piercing gun, not a needle. Although not painful piercing is a little uncomfortable! You can purchase a topical anaesthetic cream such as Emla or LMX4 (5% Lidocaine) without prescription. This needs to be applied approximtely 30-45 minutes before your appointment. Once applied it is advisable to cover the skin with cling film which will aid the development of the anaesthetic. Please note this will not numb the area fully but it will help in easing discomfort.
You can purchase a small tube from myself (£5) or you can buy from Superdrug or Tesco's pharmacy (I'm told Boots are no longer selling over the counter) or you can order on line. This is advisable for younger (age 10 and under) clients.
Please bring a hair band to tie hair back if it is long.
Written aftercare instructions will also be provided.
I am qualified to pierce the lobe and the cartilage (the curved outer edge - not the inner parts) of the ear. I have been piercing ears for 14 years and have be-jewelled hundreds of ears! Please don't hesitate to call if you have further questions.
