Our piercing earrings are packed in sealed, sterilised cartridges and are not opened until your piercing.
Safety backs shield the piercing tip, stop the back being too tight, and allow proper airflow during the healing process.
We will be wearing masks throughout your piercing and ask that you do the same. All surfaces are sterlised before and after piercings and we’ll be wearing gloves. We also ask that you only bring one other person into the shop with you to ensure we can maintain social distancing.
Before the piercing, we will take you through the relevant forms that need to be signed (You can view them here). Once this is done, we will clean and mark your ear where you would like it pierced - we will always make sure you're happy with the location before carrying out the piercing. When the piercing is done, we will show you how to clean and look after your piercing while it heals.
We can pierce any part of the ear lobe or cartilage. See the diagram below for the different points we pierce.
We don't currently pierce any parts of the ear shaded in red.
Ear piercings are usually the least painful kind of piercing. All our piercing earrings have ultra-thin piercing posts, which help your ears heal faster and minimise any discomfort. All of our trained piercing staff have had piercings at RUBIROX and will put you at ease if you are feeling nervous.
Changing your piercing is all dependant on how your piercing is healing. We recommend waiting at least 6 weeks for lobe piercings and 12 weeks for cartilage. Once this time has passed you are fine to change your jewellery but the piercing may still get irritated from time to time, if this happens we recommend going back to your piercing care routine until it calms. If you are unsure please contact us or come visit us in-store. For more aftercare information see our guide here.
Everyone heals differently but minimum healing time for lobe piercings is 6-12 weeks and 1 year for cartilage piercings. These can get irritated even when fully healed if this happens we recommend going back to your piercing care routine until it calms. For more aftercare information see our guide here.
