Although you’ll certainly feel some pain when your earlobes are pierced, there’s truly nothing to be scared of and you can go into the experience with confidence that the worst of the pain is over within seconds.
All piercings are subject to age restrictions. For details, please contact the salon or call us on 01303 814000 if you have any questions.

Most people remember when and where they had their ears pierced, which is why we have chosen the Studex system for our east piercing at Beau Boutique.
Studex is the most trusted brand in the world so you can be assured that yours or your child’s ear piercing will be a positive experience for you both.
The patented Studex ear piercing systems are both safe and hygienic.
The piercing studs, which actually serve to pierce the ear, come in sterile, individually sealed packaging.
These precision instruments can be operated quickly with great ease, meaning an experience with minimum discomfort for our first-time clients.
Studex ear piercing products are exclusively designed to safely pierce the ear lobe and outer cartilage of the ear.
Earlobe piercings are the quickest to heal. They typically take about one to two months to fully heal.
Cartilage piercings elsewhere on your ear will take longer to heal. It may take up to six months or even a year before a helix or tragus piercing is fully healed.
While your piercing is still healing, don’t take your jewelry out for an extended period. Doing so may cause the hole to close.
We advise our ear piercing clients to allow a minimum of 6 weeks for pierced ear lobes and 12 weeks for ear cartilage piercings to heal properly.
You should only switch into new earrings after the suggested healing period. If you have any queries or questions post-treatment then please contact us for advice.
Now that you’ve gotten your piercing, it’s important to take care of it. The first few weeks are crucial to making sure it heals properly.
