We pierce exclusively with our own earrings.
Gold: For those who opt for a needle piercing we carry 14k & 18K gold studs with diamonds, crystals and cubic zirconia that are appropriate for either lobe or cartilage piercings. Medical-grade titanium is also an option for all ages.
 
Medical-Grade: For ages 2 months & up choose from several styles of studs that are made from pure medical-grade materials the FDA has approved for use INSIDE the body, making them the safest choice for those with allergy concerns. Our medical-grade plastic earrings have 0% latex, nickel or BPA, are super light weight, and great for babies. Medical-grade titanium is the same material used in surgical implants, eliminating concerns about allergic reactions. We pierce babies exclusively with the Blomdahl piercing system that is only available through medical practitioners.
 

Placement

Aesthetic balance

Proper placement is key to not only a beautiful piercing, but one that stands the test of time. This is where experience matters. After piercing thousands of ears you can be assured the person working on you or your child is highly trained and experienced. 
I strive for aesthetic perfection in balance while providing a highly personalized service.   
 
 

Piercing

Sterile and disposable

Babies & Children: The piercing is performed using a medical ear piercing system used exclusively by medical practitioners. Earrings are manufactured in Sweden and prepackaged in sterile cassettes. Anything that comes into direct contact with your skin is one-time use and disposed of after every client, therefore there is no chance of cross-contamination. We pierce babies with the Blomdahl medical ear piercing system.  

Children, teens & adults: Some children ages 5 & up will opt for a needle piercing (vs "the gun") where pre-packaged, sterile and disposable needles are used. Most teens & adults will have their piercings done with a needle. Jewelry made of 14k/18k gold or medical-grade titanium is available.

Healing

How to get the best results

Rachel Smith, RN will review your aftercare instructions in detail during your appointment. 
 
Piercing studs are worn for 6-8 weeks for ear lobe piercings (minimum 3 months for cartilage), cleaned with saline spray, soap and water, and are not rotated. As a result of this "no touch" approach, we see extremely low infection rates.
