The Studex® ear piercing system is a widely recognised and trusted method for ear piercing. It utilises sterile, pre-packaged earrings with a specifically designed instrument to ensure a safe and precise piercing experience. Studex® earrings are hypoallergenic and made of high-quality materials like 24k gold-plated surgical stainless steel. This system is popular because it prioritises safety, hygiene, and comfort, making it a preferred choice for professional ear piercers worldwide.

Yes, ear piercing with the Studex® system is known for its safety and hygiene. The earrings come in sterile, single-use cartridges, which are loaded into the instrument just before the piercing. This minimises the risk of infection and ensures a clean, safe procedure. The piercing instrument is designed to provide a quick and precise piercing, reducing discomfort and the likelihood of complications.

We only pierce ear lobes for those aged 8 years and over. (No other piercing areas can be offered, ear lobes only) Anyone under the age of 18 must attend their appointment with a parent or adult over the age of 18.

Caring for newly pierced ears is crucial to prevent infection and promote proper healing. Here are some tips:

  • Clean your earlobes and earrings with an antiseptic solution provided by your ear piercer or as recommended.
  • Avoid touching your earrings or twisting them during the healing process.
  • Do not remove the initial earrings for at least 6-8 weeks to allow for proper healing.
  • Avoid submerging your ears in pools, hot tubs, or bodies of water during the healing period.
  • If you experience any signs of infection or discomfort, contact your ear piercer or a healthcare professional promptly.
