    Ear Piercing

    Where does a person go to get their ears pierced? Only place I know of is Claire's. Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Thanks - for the sensible answers. Repped.

    tattoo parlours, make sure a needle is used! Guns can be really dangerous and damage the ear.

    You can get ear piercing gun kits and do it at home



    Don't think daughter would let me do that for her!!! Bad enough if I have to get a splinter out of her finger - she screams blue murder!!

    Used to be hairdressers but probably beauty salons as well these days

    I got mine done at a jewelers with a gun, havent worn anything in it for years now and it is still alright.
    But i'd goto a jewelers, tattoo parlour, or decent beauty salon/hairdressers not claires.

    I used one of these, it was a needle and a ice cube.

    Someone has to ask - what's the apple for? :thinking:

    a body piercing studio?
    most tattoo studios have a piercer
    its best to go where they will use a needle(a tattoo/piercing studio will use a needle, salons will use guns) if its for anywhere higher then a second lobe piercing, as the gun isn't suitable for cartilage, theres a high risk of it splitting.
    a gun is generally ok for lobe piercings, however they can jam and cause loadsa problems, i had mine done with a gun no problem, but you tend to find as its so easy to get hold of the equipment lots of hairdressers will give it a go with not much idea
    id tend to advise better to be safe than sorry, spend the extra few quid and go to a body piercer/tattooist, ask someone you know thats had piercings with no problems and go to where they went

    To bite down upon whilst the hole is made, I presume.

    Lots of people will have done, but i've read more problems with CLaire's then elsewhere, but maybe because they are a large company thus hit the press last year.

    That is why I liked the gun, fast and instant. Although if I was to have any other piercings I'd have them done by needle, so much more accurate and cleaner.

    i did 6 of my ear piercings myself...:oops:

    i was young and drunk at the time, but did a good job lol got 7 holes in 1 ear and 1 in the other

    it was when i was a teenager and had a few too many, lol, used a piercing earing (the type they use with a gun with a spike on the end) and just pushed it through
    still got all 8 earings in now, they look nice got tiny black studs in all of them

    Ahh back in the day I had 4 earrings in the lobe, all claires, belly button twice and tongue done twice, just to hack my dad off and it was cool, just kept one ear hole now though.

    lol i had to wait till i left home before i could get my nose and belly button pierced and my dad still dissaproved! still got them all in now, at least when you get sick of them they heal up
    ouch could never get my tongue done, i'm far too sqeemish!

    iv had lots of piercings, not got tht many in no thow, and i have to say my nose was the most painful, i didnt have any kind of anesthetic, but i didnt for my tongue,nipple or eyebrow, and none came close to the pain of having my nose done. i had the worst reaction to my tongue thow, made me go really faint

    i did all of mine at a pharmacy and it cost less than a fiver
