TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Children must be aged 7 or over to have an earlobe piercing.
You must be over the age of 16 to get a piercing unaccompanied by an adult.
Those under the age of 16 must be accompanied by their legal guardian. Both child and legal guardian must have valid photographic ID or equivalent with them on the day (E.G. passport, driver’s licence, birth certificate). If child and legal guardian’s last name are different, proof of guardianship must also be presented (passport, birth certificate, etc.).
A valid photographic ID or equivalent will be required for proof of age. Where this is not present, the piercing team have a legal right to refuse service.
Piercing is not recommended if you are pregnant or a nursing mother.
All the Studex Jewellery is hypoallegenic and nickel-free.
Clean your piercing morning and night until it is fully healed, which can take several weeks. Cleaning more than four times a day or using harsh cleaning products can irritate your piercing and delay healing.
Do not remove you jewellery during healing time as it will begin to close immediately, making it difficult to reinsert.
Avoid touching the piercing with un-washed hands and fingernails or getting other people’s saliva or bodily fluids in the area.
Avoid friction and pressure, such as sleeping on the piercing or tight clothing during the healing period.
Swimming in chlorinated pool water or fresh water lakes during the first six to eight weeks of the healing period should be avoided. Clean salt-water swimming locations are better for your piercing.
Wash hands thoroughly before touching studs or ear.
Cleanse front and back of the ear 2 times a day with Studex After Piercing Solution without removing studs. Then rotate studs 2 or 3 times 180 degree left and 180 degree right i.e. a half turn only, thus avoiding hair wrapping around the post at the back of the lobe. In between cleansing, the ear should be kept DRY.
Keep hair spray, soap, shampoo and other preparations away from the ear. After shampooing, the ear should be rinsed with clear water and then cleansed with Studex After Piercing Solution as described above.
Remove studs or handle your ears and/or studs unnecessarily.
Push the butterfly along the post towards the ear – the butterfly must always be positioned at the tip of the post. Feel the position each time you clean the ear – it must feel smooth. This ensures that the earring remains LOOSE during the healing period. This is essential as tight earrings may lead to inflammation.
Leave studs in the ears for 6 weeks continuously.
After 6 weeks, the stud can be removed and other post type earring may be worn continuously.
Use only post-style earrings continuously for the first 6 months from piercing. The post should be a surgical grade of stainless steel or other hypo-allergic material.
Minor pain/redness may occur immediately – this is normal. This will settle within 48 hours provided proper after care is carried out. If undue pain/swelling/redness occurs at anytime, seek medical advice before removing the ear-piercing stud.
