How to Get Pierced Ears:
1. Purchase a pair of my starter/healing/sleeper earrings from my STARTER EARRINGS page or my KIDS EARRINGS page.
My healing earrings are far superior for anyone who suffers with contact allergies than anything else you can buy. This is because they are made of 100% pure and natural (unalloyed) Niobium and Titanium. The grade of Titanium for sale in stores is NOT pure, it is usually "Surgical Implant Grade Titanium" which is alloyed with Vanadium and Aluminum .. both metals are listed on the "Common Potential Sensitizer List" of No-nos.
My healing earrings come with detailed instructions for the 100% Non-allergenic care of your ears and earrings so that you can achieve complete healing as quickly as is possible. Not only do our earrings need to be 100% Pure and Non-allergenic, but so also does the products and proceedures we use during piercing and healing. Always follow my instructions which came with your earrings exactly, without adding to or taking away from them .... no matter who tells you otherwise.
The price of my earrings include full follow-up care should a problem or question arise. I have the experience of tens of thousands of customers world wide, who suffer with contact allergies just like you do, and I am confident I've been through every situation that can occur. I am ready and able to share this experience with you to ensure your successful healing and ability to Wear Earrings Again.
My earrings are Money Back Guaranteed to be Non-allergenic. Don't buy your healing earrings from anyone who is not willing to refund your money if you turn out to be allergic to their earrings. The last thing you need is to waste more money on yet another unsuccessful attempt at pierced ears.
2. Find a Piercing Professional who is willing to pierce you and then put MY healing earrings into place for you.
My Pure Grade Titanium Post and Ball earrings are perfect in this situation, as a Professional Piercer will prefer to use a nice smooth manufactured earring in your piercing rather than a hand made one.
Make sure they understand that a contact allergy specialist referred you to them for their hand piercing services. He or she will pierce you with a special hollow needle which is so sharp it is nearly painless. The needle gently moves flesh aside making room for the earring, instead of shoving an earring through your ear. Be sure to get pierced with a 20 gauge needle so that standard sized earrings fit your piercings.
Don't get pierced with a gun. A piercing Gun essentially staples an earring into the ear, causing skin tearing which is more difficult to heal. Additionally it is very difficult to get a straight and even piercing from a gun ... even if the piercist is a highly trained professional (which they usually are not) ... which leaves us with piercings that our earrings can not hang properly from. Also, earrings that fit into the piercing gun are not Non-allergenic and are the last thing we want to put into a new wound (unhealed piercing). Even Titanium earrings you may find that fit into a gun are made of an alloyed (not pure) recipe of Titanium called "Surgical Implant Grade Titanium" which contains known allergy causing metals and are not appropriate for contact allergy sufferers.
Check the internet or your local phone book's yellow pages, under the heading of "Body Piercing Studios". If you cannot find anything under that heading, try "Tattoo & Piercing Parlors". Some Beauty Salons which offer Professional "Permanent Make-up" (facial tattoos) also employ Professional Ear Piercers. Many Doctors and Nurses also offer piercing services. As with most services, more choices are available in larger towns and cities.
Most Piercing Professionals and Doctors will want you to purchase a pair of their earrings for your piercing needs, but your Contact Allergies makes it impossible to heal your newly pierced ears with their earrings. Be sure they know that this is the case for you. My healing earrings are fully autoclave-able, as may be required for sterilization.
How about piercings on children?
In some states it is allowable for children to be pierced in a professional studio as long as a parent or guardian is present and signs the paperwork. In Texas there is even a Professional Pediatric Piercing studio that is just for kids! Unfortunately, however, not all states allow minors to be pierced at a studio, even with parental consent.
"It's sad that it is perfectly OK to bring your children to a department store and have them unsafely pierced, but you can't let them be professionally pierced in a sterile environment. If you're an activist, it might even be prudent to write your local Congress members about this issue. Take a stand with me and get the gun banned!"
In this situation, my recommendation is to take your child to a Pediatrician or Family Practitioner. Although it may be more expensive than a Piercing Studio, many perform piercings right in their office. If your Pediatrician does not perform piercings, ask the nurse or the doctor if they know of a Doctor who does. There are many of them out there. Entire cultures have their little girls ears pierced practically at birth, so just ask around, and you will find someone. :)
Finally, if you are just unable to find someone to pierce you and put my earrings into place for you, contact me for the best instructions under these circumstances. Information is available to all paying customers.
