Ear Piercing

We provide a private and sterile ear and nose piercing service performed by well trained pharmacy staff.

 Choice 

  • We offer a wide selection of earring colors, shapes, sizes and styles.

 

  Sterile 

  • We use the Studex 75 System.  This system has individual sterile cartridges containing  hypoallergenic studs and clasps.  The cartridges  are placed using a non touch technique into the piercing instrument. Studs, clasps and piercing instrument do not touch the ears during the process.

 Comfort

  • Virtually pain-free - quieter, sharper and slimmer than previous types, they are a good choice for children’s ears. 

  • We can usually pierce both ears at the same time.

 

 Who is suitable?

  • We can pierce any age - including baby ear piercing.   For babies we use a special stud with a shorter post on it.  We have pierced babies ears from as little as three days old. Many cultures have piercings from a young age.  We find babies seldom have more than a few seconds cry from the event.   Please call ahead to check staff who can deal with babies are available at the time you choose.
