A Parent’s Guide to Piercings

A Parent’s Guide to Piercings

Many of us can’t remember our first ear piercings. Whether we were too young to realize it or have decided it’s a memory we would much rather forget. Your child’s first piercings should be a memorable moment, and is quite often a chance to bond together. 

         Getting your first piercings can be an exciting experience for any child. From searching through jewelry and finding their favourite pieces to showing off their new style to friends and family.

Before diving into the jewelry displays, it is important to research the studio of your choosing! By making sure they only use needles and not piercing guns, carries only implant grade materials, uses disposable equipment, an autoclave on-site with records and a valid and positive inspection from the board of health. 

All of these things can be found here at Pierced!
