Professional Earlobe & Cartilage Piercings

  • Try to resist the temptation to change your initial jewelry at the six-week mark. Ear and cartilage piercings take up to a year to heal completely.
  • Abandon the stigma of the needle. They are more precise and less scarring than a piercing gun, especially for cartilage.
  • Keep your cell phones and pillowcases clean and avoid sleeping directly on new piercings during the healing stage.
  • The ear is the most commonly adorned body part. Play around with your aesthetic options and have fun!
  • The cheapest jewelry can call itself hypoallergenic. Remember that is NOT the same thing as implant grade.

Additional Facts & Tips

Sleeping With New Piercings

  • Avoid getting new piercings in both ears at the same time.
  • Sleeping on your piercings may make them more prone to irritation, and migration.
  • Ear piercings can have a variety of different aftercare mishaps, if you are worried or feel like yours is abnormal, please reach out.
  • Change out your pillowcase for a fresh one often and make a habit of cleaning your cell phone every day. You won’t regret it.

Choose Initial Jewelry You’ll Love

  • Body adornment and modification is one of the boldest ways we get to express ourselves.
  • Treat yourself to jewelry you know you’re going to love all year.
  • There’s an overwhelming selection of incredible jewelry out there, but resist the temptation to change yours at the six-week mark.
  • This is only the first stage of healing, especially for your cartilage.
  • The longer you wear the implant-grade, the better.

Don’t Shop Around That First Year

  • If you insist on changing the style of your jewelry after the six-week healing milestone, we’ll happily do so for piercings that look to be healing properly.
  • We do NOT recommend shopping outside of a professional piercing studio during the first year of healing.
  • Even if jewelry from the mall or a fine jeweler is expensive or makes hypoallergenic claims, it is not implant grade and biocompatibilities are rarely considered.

What to avoid?

  • Wearing jewelry that contains nickel or silver is one of the leading reasons that the body reacts to a piercing (new or old)
  • Most people are allergic to it and what can manifest as an extreme infection is often catalyzed by an allergic reaction first.
