What are the risks of ear piercing?
Before we start the procedure, we will ask you to sign an informed consent form that reviews some the risks listed below.
Infection: Though the risk of infection from ear lobe piercing is very low, it does occur on occasion. We try to eliminate this risk altogether by using sterile, single-use piercing cassettes and providing detailed after-care instructions.
Pain: The pain of ear piercing is often compared to getting a vaccination. For a virtually pain-free experience, numbing cream is available.
