Flat Back Earrings For Ear Piercings

Flat Back Earrings For Ear Piercings

What is a flat back earring?

A "flat back" earring refers to a hollow post style backing, with a small flat disk that sits on the back of the ear. 

These are a more comfortable and sanitary option than the typical "butterfly back" earrings we see in older or lower quality jewelry.

Flat back earrings can also be referred to as a "threadless post" or a "labret post". Read more about threadless style jewelry with this link.

What piercings can I wear a flat back earring in?

Flat backs can be worn in virtually any piercing that does not exclusively require a barbell or ring!  At Pierced we exclusively use flat back style jewelry, as it is the safest, and most comfortable option for our clients to wear. 

What makes them special?

✨ Flat backs or threadless posts are made from implant grade titanium, and will not irritate clients with metal allergies.

✨ Flat backs are synonymous with threadless style jewelry.

✨ Flat backs are low profile, and do not get caught on hair or clothing as often as butterly backings. 

✨ Flat backs do not have threading or small crevices.  This makes them easier to clean, and therefore more hygienic. 

✨ Designed to be worn 24/7, even when sleeping and showering.

✨ Super comfy to wear, and wont poke you.

✨ Can be worn in both fresh, and healed piercings.

✨ Comes in a variety of lengths to fit your anatomy perfectly.

✨ Very headphone friendly, especially for customers with tragus piercings
