1) How much does ear piercing cost?

In simple terms, absolutely nothing! All you pay for is the piercing studs which start at £12.99 for gold plated ball studs and go up to £99.99 for 9ct yellow gold genuine diamond studs. Prices include the pair of studs (or a single stud if you’re only having one ear done), aftercare solution, a six week check-up AND a 20% off voucher for your next pair of earrings. What a bargain!

2) Do I need to book an appointment?

Normally we are more than happy to accept walk-in appointments, however, to limit the number of people in our store and ensure that ear piercings are adequately staggered to allow for cleaning and social distancing we would ask you to please contact your local store. Find details of your local store by visiting out Store Locator and contact them to book in your ear piercing appointment.

3) How long does the piercing take?

The actual piercing itself will only take a matter of minutes however to maintain the highest levels of hygiene, we are taking extra cleaning precautions so bear with us while we sanitise the area before and after each ear piercing and take time to take you through the process. We do also understand that some people can be a little nervous so our piercers will always take the time to make sure that customers are comfortable. This means the whole visit should take no longer than half an hour. There are however, no real time constraints and our experienced staff will take as long as you need to make sure the person getting their ears pierced is completely happy before carrying out the piercing.

4) What do I need to do after getting my ears pierced?

Looking after your piercings is very important to ensure that you avoid infection. You are advised to leave the earrings in without removing them for a minimum of 6 weeks. For the first 6 months after the healing period, do not go longer than 24 hours without earrings in or the holes may start to close. After your ears have been pierced it is very important that you minimise the risk of infection by regular use of our after care solution which is free as part of your piercing. You will receive more information about caring for your piercing on the day, plus there is more information online here. Don't forget to use your 20% off voucher for your next set of earrings!

5) Does my local store do ear piercing?

The best way to check is via our Store Locator. On the individual store pages there is a list of services; if ear piercing is listed then you are good to go!

6) What age do you start piercing from?

All of our piercing stores pierce children aged 6 and above. If you are under 18 you will need an adult to accompany you who can sign and give consent.

7) What are the aftercare procedures?

It's simple! Clean, turn and check. Clean the piercing with your FREE aftercare solution 2-3 times a day, turn the earrings twice and day and check the butterfly backs are not pushed too far up the post.
