Ear Piercings are available to clients aged 12 and over with parental consent and valid government issued identification.

Clients over 16 are required to have valid government issued identification only.

BASIC EARLOBE

Easily the most common piercing in the world, the basic earlobe piercing is one of the oldest forms of body modification.

Healing time for these kinds of piercings is typically around 8 to 10 weeks. 

HELIX

The helix is the ridge of cartilage running around the edge of the external part of the ear.

Healing time is typically around 3 to 6 months. 

FORWARD HELIX

A forward helix piercing goes through the outer upper helix, above the tragus, where your ear attaches to your face. 

This piercing location is well suited to multiple smaller decorative jewelry options.

Healing time is typically around 3 to 6 months. 

INDUSTRIAL

Industrial piercings are technically two separate piercings connected by a straight barbell.

We recommend that get both piercings done and connected with a single barbell at the time of piercing. We find using separate jewelry for healing results in different angles causing difficulty connecting the piercings after they have healed.

Healing time is typically around 3 to 6 months. 

ROOK

A rook piercing is placed vertically through the lower end of the anti-helix, it is situated above the tragus and just back from the forward helix as shown in the photo.

Typically pierced with a curved barbell for the healing process, a ring can be worn once it is healed.

Healing time is typically around 3 to 6 months. 

TRAGUS

A tragus piercing goes through the small fold of cartilage in front of your ear canal. 

Healing time typically around 3 to 6 months. 

CONCH

Conch piercings are naturally framed by the rest of the ear, and make for a very striking placement for more decorative post ends.

Healing is typically around 3 to 6 months. 

DAITH

Done correctly, the rest of the ear creates a perfect frame around your new Daith piercing. 

Daith piercings are usually initially pierced with a ring, the ring will be of a small enough diameter that it fits comfortably in the conch of the ear. 

Healing time is typically around 3 to 6 months.

Ear piercing FAQ

Can I sleep on my fresh piercing?

We always recommend when getting an ear piercing, particularly anything that pierces cartilage, that you refrain from sleeping directly on the piercing until is is healed.
Sleeping on a piercing such as a helix, can apply pressure on the fresh piercing, irritating and migrating the piercing.

If you are a side sleeper we recommend piercing one side at a time.

What to expect

Body piercings vary in healing times anywhere from 8 weeks to a several months depending on the

piercing site. 

Everyone’s body is different so be patient and allow your body the time it needs to heal.

Initially there may be bleeding, or occasionally slight bruising around the piercing site. 

Slight to moderate swelling can be expected. 

The tissue around the piercing can become tender and slightly

red/pink during the first few weeks of healing. 

A clear or light yellow discharge might occur off and on indefinitely. This discharge forms a crust which you can rinse off gently with warm water. 

Do not touch or pick at your piercing and never rotate the jewellery while your piercing is healing!

What to do

Rinse your piercing twice daily (or as recommended by your piercer) in warm running water to soften and remove any crust that may have formed around your piercing. 

Warm water helps keep the area clean as well as increasing circulation which is beneficial to healing.

After the warm water rinse, follow with Simple Care Spray or a Sterile Wound Wash Saline available at any pharmacy. 

Spray directly on the piercing twice daily and leave your piercing

alone. 

DO NOT make your own salt solution at home as this can impede healing.

We are not responsible for lost jewellery so please check your jewellery daily with freshly washed hands.

Threaded jewellery can loosen and fall off. 

Playing with your jewellery not only increases your chances of complications during healing, but it may also result in the loosening of threaded ends and in turn

the loss of the piercing site so keep your hands away from your piercing as much as possible.

Ensure anything that comes into contact with your piercing such as clothing, bedding, towels etc. are

clean until your piercing is fully healed.

What not to do

Do not touch your piercing unless you are checking the threading. Do not allow anyone else to touch your piercing.

Never pick at or rotate your jewellery.

Do not use Q-Tips or cotton swabs or any other materials that may leave fibres behind.

Do not bandage your piercing. Refrain from wearing tight clothing.

Do not use antibacterial soaps, peroxide, rubbing alcohol, Bactine, antibiotic ointments (Polysporin)or other first aid products unless instructed to by your doctor.

Do not submerge your piercing in any bodies of water including bathtubs, lakes, oceans, hot tubs swimming pools, saunas etc. until it is fully healed.

Do not remove or change your jewellery for at least 8-12 weeks or as directed by your piercer.

Always check with your piercer as to suitable jewellery options for your particular piercing and anatomy and always be aware of the quality of the jewellery you are putting in your body.

Do not share jewellery. This puts you at risk for disease and/ or infection transmission.

Do not rely on the advice of friends, family or the internet. Your piercer knows what works best for their practices. 

If your piercer is unavailable, or if you suspect complications or infection please contact your doctor.
