Ear Lobe Piercing for Minors 10 - 14 Years Old Continued


Lifestyle and Aftercare
Healing a fresh piercing takes time, patience, and at times may require some temporary lifestyle adjustments. The following activities greatly affects the healing of a new piercing:

  • Swimming - We do not recommend swimming or submerging a fresh piercing in pools, oceans and lakes for at least 2 months after getting pierced. This is because open bodies of water harbour harmful bacteria that may enter the piercing channel and lead to irritation and infection. Swimming pools/hot tubs contain harsh chemicals that can delay your piercing’s healing time and cause irritation.
  • Contact Sports, Helmets - Activities that have a high risk of bumping, snagging, impacting, or hitting your piercing, (i.e. boxing, jujitsu, martial arts, or activities that require tight fitting helmets) may increase the risk of irritation.
  • Initial jewellery must not be removed for the duration of your healing time which is 3 - 6 months for ear lobes. The only exception is when upsizing or downsizing the post (only performed by our piercers).
  • Travel - consider postponing your piercing appointment if you plan on travelling in the immediate future. This is because when flying or visiting a destination, the altitude change, climate change and pressure inside an aircraft can cause your fresh piercing to swell and lead to irritation. 
  • Beauty products -  i.e. hair dye, hair styling products etc, that come in contact with your piercing may cause irritation or piercing bumps.
  • Ear wear/devices - Headphones, ear muffs, glasses, ear plugs, etc - Kindly note that these items may affect the healing of your piercing. 

 *We do not offer piercing parties or group bookings for minors.
