Ear Piercing care

To make sure your piercing heals perfectly, use our Ear Care guide

  • Keep it clean

    One of the most important parts of getting your ears pierced is the aftercare. In order to obtain the best results, please follow these essential steps.

    1. DITCH THE DIRT

    Always wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap before touching your ears or earrings.

    2. SQUEAKY CLEAN

    Clean the front and back of your piercing 3 times a day by applying a generous amount of Claire’s Ear Care Solution with a cotton ball or cotton swab.

    3. TURN AROUND

    Make sure the earring clutch back is pushed back into the safety notch on the post. The tip of the post should be covered and the clutch should NEVER be pushed flush against the ear. Then, gently slide the piercing back and forth so the solution drips inside the piercing. Finally, rotate the earring by turning it forwards and backwards.

    4. WAITING GAME

    For earlobe piercings, leave your piercing earrings in for 6 weeks before you remove them or insert any other earrings. Post earrings must be worn at all times for 6 months to make sure your piercing stays the perfect size. Upper flat cartilage piercings must be left in for 12 weeks before removal and post style earrings must be worn for 12 months after that. Cartilage piercing is not available at all locations; please ask an Associate for details.

  • Almost all ages

    If you're a little worried about getting your ears pierced we can do it super quick, call ahead and check whether we can do a dual piercing, meaning half the nerves and half the time with 100% satisfaction.

    HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE?

    Infants will need to be at least 6 months of age, with parents or Legal Guardians demonstrating that they have finished their course of immunisation’s. Minors,under 16 years of age, will need to be accompanied by a Parent or Legal Guardian throughout who will need to sign the Claire’s Ear Piercing Form. You’ll need to be at least 14 to have your cartilage pierced.

    AM I IN SAFE HANDS?

    All Claire’s associates complete an intensive Ear Piercing Training Programme before they can become certified Ear Piercing Specialists. Our piercing earrings are individually packaged and sterilised at a state of the art facility. We wear only single use gloves and all our equipment is cleaned after each use.

    WILL IT HURT?

    All Claire’s piercing earring posts have ultra-fine points that pierce gently and promote fast healing. The ear piercing is fast, gentle and few people feel any discomfort.

    WHAT’S IT LIKE?

    Once all the appropriate forms have been signed and reviewed, all you have to do is relax! While you are seated, our Piercing Specialist will clean and mark your earlobe and give you the chance to check it out. Once you agree that it’s at the perfect spot, the piercing itself is over in an instant. Afterwards, the Ear Piercing Specialist will coach you on how to care for your new sparkle.

  • Trouble-shoot

    It's important to prevent any problems such as irritation and redness After your earpiercing, be sure to do the following:

    After your earpiercing, be sure to:

    IRRITANT ALERT

    REMEMBER

    Pain, redness or swelling that lasts longer than 24 hours after piercing is NOT normal. If redness or swelling occurs, consult your doctor.
