Medical Ear Piercing

Eligibility

  • We pierce adults and children.

  • Our minimum age requirement is 4 months of age.

  • Your child MUST have their 2 and 4 month vaccines.

  • Proof of vaccination is required for children under 18 years of age.

  • Absolutely NO exceptions or waivers to our vaccine policy!

  • Adults must have received a current tetanus shot in the last 10 years.

Process

  • Nurse practitioner performed piercings.

  • Piercings are performed in a private clinic room.

  • Informed consent is reviewed to outline risks and side effects.

  • Aftercare plan is reviewed and provided to you.

  • Breastfeeding is encouraged during the appointment.

  • FDA-approved piercing gun licensed for use by medical professionals only.

  • Nothing touches the ear - only the earring.

  • The earring, backing and clamp are sterile, factory-sealed and single-use.

  • The backing is sealed so nothing is exposed to poke you behind the ear.

  • The backing only goes "so far" on the earring post, so nothing becomes embedded - a great safety feature.

  • Both ears are pierced at the appointment, however, we only pierce one ear at a time to ensure accurate placement.
