Piercings

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.

  • People who have no active skin infections or eczema.

  • People who have no contagious disease.

  • People over 16 years of age, or younger if there is parent or guardian consent.

After care 

  • We can provide you with an antiseptic solution to keep your piercing hygienic.

  • We will provide you with written information on how to care for your new piercing.

  • We have a selection of suitable earrings to wear after your first earrings are able to be removed.

 

Cost

  • Earrings and piercing starts at $26 - a few dollars more for more expensive choices of earrings.

  • Price includes antiseptic solution.

 

Noses.

 

  • We use a separate piercing system for this.  It is a gun based system.   
     

  • The best option for the piercing of the nose is to use a needle.  The needle causes less damage to the cartilage so the piercing will heal faster, and the hole created is slimmer.

 

  •  For those who still choose to proceed with the gun piercing, we are happy to do this, provided the person is over 18 years of age, or at 16 years providing the system can fit the nose and you have a parent with you.
     

  • Warning:  Cartilage is slower to heal,  until 18 years of age the nose has not finished growing and the cartilage  is not fully formed. At any age a needle piercing is the best option.

 

  • stud, piercing and antiseptic cost $30.00
