There are three main methods of piercing, piericing guns are spring loaded and loud. They "shoot" the piercing earrings through the ear and can often cause tissue damage which requires extra healing time. Body piercing parlours often use hollow needles or cannulas that remove a core of flesh to pierce the ear. At Steffans we use the Inverness System- a hand pressured instrument to privide a gentle quiet and accurate piercing in one movement.
The posts of our earrings are .030” in diameter which is between 20 and 21 gauge.
The average healing time is 6 weeks for an earlobe piercing and 12 weeks for a cartilage piercing. We recommend leaving your piercing earrings in and following your aftercare instructions for the entire healing period. For tips & more information about what to expect after you have your ears pierced, speak to your piercer in store.
You should only switch into new earrings after the healing period: 6 weeks for an earlobe piercing and 12 weeks for a cartilage piercing. Newly-pierced ears are very sensitive and require special care and attention. If you take your earrings out for any length of time during the healing period, the holes may close or you may find it to be very difficult to re-insert earrings into a piercing hole that has not fully healed.
