1. Earlobe

Okay, okay. Yes I know this is nothing new. In fact, the earlobe piecing could easily be referred to as the foundation of all ear piercings. That being said, we have to pay our respects. I mean, even though it is the oldest and most traditional piercing that we’ve probably all had since we were 12 years old, that doesn’t mean it’s not ridiculously cute and feminine, right? As an added bonus, earlobe piercings don’t hurt practically at all- we’d give it a 2 out of 10 on the pain charts, and there’s hundreds- if not thousands- of adorable jewelry pieces for earlobe piercings. Mixing, matching, and styling for any occasion is a synch. We like the sound of that!  This piercing is priced at £20.00 for both ears

industrial

2. Industrial

Industrial piercings used to be total shockers- the ‘out of the box’ piercing everyone was afraid to get. But now they’re one of THEE most popular ear piercings to get. Imagine that?! Also referred to as a scaffold piercing, the industrial piercing can be most easily described as a double piercing bound by one bar: yes, that means two holes on two opposite ends of your ear. This particular piercing has a rather long healing time of up to a year, but come on- how seriously rockin’ does this piercing look?! We love it, and we love how many bar designs are on the market, from a simple silver arrow bar like this one to the most extravagant masterpieces with chains and charms dangling every which way.  £30.00

orbital

3. Orbital

Here’s another great ear piercing that is designed to have two separate holes utilize the same piece of jewelry. An orbital differs from an industrial in the placement of the holes: they are muchclose together, thus making it the ideal placement for a smaller piece of jewelry like this simple hoop. Orbitals can be placed just about anywhere on the ear, but we especially adore this upper cartilage placement. It’s super-trendy and has that feminine touch we love!

daith4. Daith Okay, I know this girlhas a LOT of cool ear piercings going on. But let’s try to focus on the middle golden piece for now. And no, don’t be frightened: this piercing isn’t pronounced as ‘death’ and won’t make you feel like you’re dying, either. In fact, the pain associated with this particular piercing isn’t even that bad! Located just above the ear canal, this inner cartilage piercing requires a special type of needle thanks to its difficult location. But even though it may be a pest to pierce, we can’t dismiss how totally awesome the result looks- unbelievably swank and trendy! Mix and match with tons of different jewelry pieces to get the look you want, like this lovely moon-shaped piece!
ded6be7ede367ece2e4d92586c03e8d15. Antihelix/SnugThe antihelix ear piercing- sometimes called a ‘snug’ piercing, is situated right on the cartilage found directly on the inner rim above the cave of the ear. This shallow piercing is definitely on the quirky yet chic side of style and has a healing time of up to 16 weeks. We don’t recommend this to be your first piercing, though. Some women have given it a pain rating of over 6 out of 10! Ouch!elix6. Link Helix

Warning: not for the faint of heart! Okay, I’m kidding. It’s not that bad. Unless of course you’re going for the absolute full effect, in which case you could end up with up to 30 holes in the side of your ear. But in this case, we think the link helix is totally adorable. Helix piercings go up the entire length of the outer ear, and you can really have as many holes as you want. The cool thing about this piercing is you can mix and match with tons of cute jewelry pieces!

forwardhelix7. Forward Helix

Probably one of the trendiest ear piercings to get: the single forward helix. Just think about it: I’m sure one of your friends- if not two or three- are already sporting this style. It’s an easy, quick piercing at the very top of the ear. Totally fashionable and totally feminine- a double win!

triple helix

8. Triple Helix

Okay, one more ‘helix’ inspired piercing and we’ll hop of the helix train. Last but not least, I proudly introduce you to the triple helix. Or as I like to call it, the piercing of the century. The triple helix is becoming ridiculously popular. It seems like every girl is wearing it! But who could blame these gals? The triple studs are nothing short of dazzling and downright chic, with the perfect dash of flirty attitude to tie it together perfectly. Seriously, if you’re in the mood for a gorgeous triple-threat ear piercing, consider this one!

9. Rook

I couldn’t tell you from experience, but I’ve heard that this is one of the most painful ear piercings out there. But come on, that set of diamonds on her inner ear is just too modernistic and swank to pass up. We think it’s well worth the pain, don’t you?

10. Inner Conch

Think of the inner conch piercing as the adorable little jewel nestled tightly in your ear- and yes, it IS as cute as it sounds. There’s tons of different jewelry pieces you could add to your inner conch, but we love this beautiful multi-colored piece that makes a huge fashion statement in it’s cozy location.

11. Outer Conch

The large, flat space on your ear- also known as the outer conch. The perfect spot for a piercing, wouldn’t you agree? The large space makes an ideal canvas to paint your prettiest pictures- or, of course, dazzle and shine with plenty of jewels. Keep it simple and stylish with a single outer conch piercing, or make a statement with several different jewels in all different colors and shapes. This truly is a remarkable location for a piercing and the options are practically limitless. Definitely a piercing to add on your ‘to-do list’!

12. Tragus

There is something so ridiculously cute about a tragus piercing. It’s like, the perfect little accenting accessory you always dreamed of having, and the best part is, you don’t have to remember to put it on every morning like an ankle bracelet or a ring. Aside from being adorable in every sense of the word, tragus piercings are also one of THEE most popular piercings in the female community, and we can see why! We’re madly in love with this cute little star, but you could literally put any piece of jewelry in this spot and it would look lovely. If you don’t want to go overboard with your next piercing and just want to keep things cute and simple, we highly recommend the tragus!

Should I pierce my ears?
Ear piercing is a procedure done mainly for cosmetic reasons. There are no health reasons to get your ears pierced and most people get their ears pierced due to personal or cultural preferences.

What is the best age at which to get my ears pierced?

There is no medical evidence to support any age restrictions. Whatever age you decide on, it’s essential that you choose where you have the procedure done carefully. For some newborns, the ear lobe is really small and we may need to wait a while; we will let you know, if this is the case. With over 20 years of experience performing ear piercings for all ages you should expect great results.

What are the risks of ear piercing?

Infection – Anytime the skin is broken there is the risk of infection. We use sterile techniques to prevent this. Our patient education material provides detailed instruction on after-care for the ear lobes. Our technique is bloodless and our single-use sterile cartridges eliminate cross-contamination.

Pain – The procedure causes minimal pain. However, since we are physician owned and supervised, we are able to perform your ear piercing with topical anesthesia if you so prefer.

Allergic reactions – Allergies to nickel and other components of earrings can occur. At Medical Ear Piercing Clinics, we use medical grade materials and earrings to prevent allergies.

Keloids – Keloids are excessive scar tissue that forms around a wound. Keloids may occur after ear piercing, and are 80% more likely to occur if ears are pierced after age 11. Other risk factors for keloids include dark skin, previous keloid formation, and nickel containing earrings.

Do you use a piercing gun?  No. We do not pierce with a traditional gun. Instead, we use a encapsulated cassette which is mounted on a piercing instrument for sterile hygienic purposes. This is a no-touch system that protects everyone from contamination. Conventional ear piercing instruments always come in contact with the customer’s ear, and therefore need to be sterilized after each ear is pierced. The medical ear piercing system uses sterile disposable cassettes to house the earring, meaning the instrument never comes in contact with the ear!

Can I swim after I pierce my ears?
Chlorine and the bacteria in unchlorinated waters may both irritate your newly pierced ears. It is therefore recommended that you wait 2-3 weeks after your piercing.

Can I bring my own earrings?
In order to reduce the risk of infection and nickel allergy, we only use our medically sterile earrings.

What does it feel like? Does it hurt?
It feels like getting a shot at the doctors. The actual piercing happens in an instant. For a few moments after the piercing, your earlobe feels warm and flushed.

My kids want to have their ears pierced. I have heard that ear piercing can cause nickel allergies. Is that true?
The ear piercing procedure as such cannot cause an allergic reaction to nickel. It is the material that some earrings are made of which can cause these reactions. All earrings made of metal contain nickel more or less — even gold and silver. The only ear piercing earrings that do not contain any nickel are the ones made of Medical Plastic. Therefore we recommend that your kids get their ears pierced with Medical Plastic or the next best thing – medical grade titanium (see below).

Is gold less allergenic than titanium and therefore better for ear piercing?
Nickel is sometimes used as a metal hardener, even in gold earrings. Also all metals can be contaminated by nickel. Medical grade titanium is your best choice for a metal based earring because it is > 99% nickel free and is least likely to leak any nickel into the skin. Please note that medical grade titanium is a much better grade than the titanium available in other earrings.

Why do I need to clean my ear with salt water ?
An ear piercing means is a break in the skin or a clean wound. There are two kinds of wounds- non-infected wounds and infected wounds. Infected wounds require an antibiotic while an ear piercing (which is a non-infected wound) should be left CLEAN, DRY and OPEN TO AIR.. Signs of infection include, redness, swelling and discharge after the first few days. If the piercing does become infected see below.

Why shouldn’t I twist the earrings during the healing period?
Twisting the earrings cause rebruising of the newly forming canal and therefore increases healing time. Constant handling of the ear piercing, especially without careful cleaning of hands and earlobe, can result in an infection. Our medical grade earrings are skin friendly and should not embed into skin.

For how long should I wear the ear piercing earrings?
We recommend that you wait for at least six weeks before you remove the ear piercing earring. This because it takes about that amount of time for a newly pierced earring tunnel to heal. Removal of the earring before the 6 week period could lead to bruising, bleeding, increased risk of infection or closing of the new piercing hole.
