2. When is Ear piercing available?
We don’t usually take appointments as this causes more stress and anxiety (like the dentist) However if you are thinking of coming in on a weekday, we would recommend that you call us beforehand.
Call us on (01905) 28333.
3. How old do you have to be?
We advise that anyone who would like their ears pierced by us at ICE is over the age of 5. This is a common age requirement in most jewellers that offer ear piercing. 5 years old is usually the lowest age we will go to, but we have made exceptions for younger children who are aware of the process.
4. How is ear piercing done?
ICE use the Caflon Ear piercing gun method, now it sounds a lot scarier than it really is! This method is almost painless, it’s so quick you won’t even realise it’s happened! It is the quickest, most efficient, and cleanest method of ear piercing. So if you’ve got a young daughter, or little sister that’s frightened of the pain, we can assure you, they probably won’t even realise it’s happened! We do one ear at a time. Please watch the how it’s done video.
5. What we use to Pierce you ears
We use the Caflon Blu system which was introduced so as to allow ear piercing to comply with the European Nickel Directive 2004/96/EC. Caflon ear studs are made from hypoallergenic material meaning they do not cause allergies or irritations. With the addition of the disposable adaptors to the Instrument the Ear Piercing Technician can feel safe in the knowledge that they are complying with the regulations.
*All studs are supplied in validated pre-sterilised blister packs using Ethylene Oxide Gas and Gas permeating paper. Every pair of earrings therefore has been individually sterilised. Compliant with EC Nickel Directive 94/27/EC
6. How long do I have to keep them in for?
The earrings must stay in for 6-8 weeks for lobe piercing and 12 weeks for cartilage piercing, with regular cleaning with the solution provided. We recommend removing the Surgical Steel studs after this period and replacing them with any earrings made of a precious metal (i.e. Silver, Gold etc) however, if you chose the Titanium option these can stay in permanently if you choose to.
