We use 2 different methods depending on the age and/or needs of the client:
1) For infants we use a medical ear piercing system which is exclusively carried by medical professionals. For this type of piercing, we use medical-grade titanium or medical-grade plastic earrings. Earrings are included in the price. We only pierce with our own pre-packaged, sterile earrings but after 6 weeks you will be able to switch into your own earrings.
2) For children and adults we can also pierce by needle using pre-packaged, sterile, disposable needles OR with a medical ear piercing gun. For needle piercings, we offer a wide selection of 14k & 18k gold (with diamonds, cubic zirconia or Swarovski crystals) and titanium. Cartilage piercings are always done by needle.
