child with earrings

Wearing earrings can be a great fashion statement and having their ears pierced can be something of a rite of passage for many young children. However, if you’re the parent of a child who wants to have their ears pierced, you may have a number of concerns. From painful procedures to infections from dirty equipment, you may be wary of exposing your child to these things.

It’s likely that your main concern is the safety of your child, so how can you make sure ear piercing is done in the safest way possible?

Find a Reputable Establishment

Of course, when you are looking for somewhere for your child to have their ears pierced, you will want to make sure that the place you choose is reputable and can be trusted to take good care of your child and their ears.

It’s important to do plenty of research and look out for customer reviews so you can judge whether they are able to provide a high standard of service.

 

Cleanliness and Hygiene is Essential

It is incredibly important that the environment is sterile when piercing ears, so this is why doing it at home is not a good idea when having your child’s ears pierced. A good establishment will be able to show that they are clean and hygienic so you feel that you can trust them with your child.

All tools should be sterile and the person who pierces your child’s ears should adhere to a high standard of hygiene, making sure to wear gloves.

Avoiding Tissue Damage

Some instruments that are often used for ear piercing can actually cause more damage than others. Piercing guns, for example, are bad tools to use for ear piercings. They can cause tissue damage in the ear as they force earrings into the ear which are dull rather than using sharp needles.

Not only can they cause tissue damage, piercing guns are known for being particularly unhygienic and can be difficult to fully sterilise, so they are unsafe for a number of reasons.

 

Finding a Safe Option

At Jeunesse Beauty, we are committed to offering an ear piercing service that you can trust and that is safe for adults and children alike. This is why we pierce ears using Inverness Ear Piercing. This involves using fully enclosed earring capsules, so you can be sure that they are completely sanitary. These earrings also feature Safety Back™ which help the ear to heal well, keeping the earring post safely enclosed rather than sticking out of the ear.

The piercing instrument is unlike a piercing gun as it only uses the pressure directly from the hand, avoiding tissue damage that you can get from piercing guns.

When you bring your child to Jeunesse Medi Spa Clinic, you can be sure that our method of ear piercing is incredibly safe and gentle. Our clinic is clean and hygienic and our team is made up of highly skilled and friendly individuals.
