Types Of Ear Piercings

Ear piercings come in various styles, mainly categorised into lobe and cartilage piercings. Lobe piercings are the most common type and involve puncturing the soft, fleshy lower part of the ear. They are often the first piercing people get and are popular for their relatively quick healing time and minimal discomfort. This area can accommodate multiple piercings, such as the standard lobe, upper lobe, and transverse lobe piercings, allowing for diverse jewellery options. On the other hand, cartilage piercings are performed on the firmer, upper parts of the ear. This includes the helix piercing. Cartilage piercings tend to be a little bit more painful and take longer to heal due to the denser tissue, but they offer a unique and edgy look that appeals to many. Both types of piercings provide a way to express individuality and personal style through a variety of earring choices. The Inverness piercing system pierces the earlobe and outer cartilage of your ear.


What Is Inverness?

Inverness produces safe & gentle ear piercing instruments. The hand pressure released piercing instrument compared to the traditional spring-loaded piercing gun allows for a more controlled ear pierce with less pain. At Sonny's Jewellers, we prioritise the safety and comfort of our customers during the ear piercing process. That's why we exclusively use the Inverness piercing equipment.


"As Easy As 1 - 2 - 3"

Getting your ears pierced at Sonny's Jewellers is "as easy as 1-2-3". First, we cleanse the earlobe with a medical-grade antiseptic wipe to ensure the area is free of bacteria and ready for piercing. Next, we carefully mark the exact spot where the piercing will be placed, ensuring perfect alignment and symmetry. Finally, using the gentle and precise Inverness hand pressure-released instrument, we pierce the ear, providing a quick and comfortable experience. This simple and efficient process ensures that you receive a safe, hygienic, and expertly placed ear piercing every time.


Ear Piercing For Children

At Sonny's Jewellers, we offer ear piercings for people of all ages including children. We understand the special significance of a child's first ear piercing and make the experience as comfortable and memorable as possible. Our professional team is experienced in handling children's ear piercings with care and precision. Get in touch or visit us in-store to find out more about getting your child's ears pierced.


Ear Piercing Aftercare

Included in the service is a bottle of dermatologist-tested Inverness aftercare solution. You should clean your piercing 3 times a day with the cleaning solution while rotating your earring and wash your hands each time before touching your piercing. During the healing process, we suggest to not sleep directly on your new piercing and to not go swimming until your piercing is fully healed to avoid irritation or an infection. The healing time for earlobe piercings is 6 - 8 weeks and 4 - 12 months for cartilage piercings. After this period your piercing should be healed and you can start to swap your earrings with other designs. It is recommended for the next 6 months to not go more than 24 hours without an earring in your ear as there is a chance the piercing may close.


Ear Piercing Trends

Ear piercing trends have evolved, reflecting both cultural influences and fashion innovations. In recent years, multiple piercings and curated ears have become highly popular, with individuals opting for a combination of lobe, helix, tragus, and cartilage piercings to create a unique and personalised look. Asymmetrical arrangements and the use of delicate, minimalist jewellery, such as mini hoops and studs, are particularly in fashion. Many celebrities and influencers often showcase their intricate ear piercing designs and inspire the piercing trends. Explore our range of cartilage earrings with even more designs in-store. Visit our Birmingham showroom to discover our full range of earrings.

Earrings - What is Included?

Included in your ear piercing service, you will receive a free pair of earrings that you can choose from a selection of beautiful stud designs. All Inverness piercing earrings are packaged in a sterile cartridge. These cartridges are fully enclosed until the moment you ear is pierced to avoid any contaminants and ensure your ear has the best chance of healing quickly.

At Sonny's Jewellers, we have a wide range of types of earrings that you can choose from to jewel your ear after it is healed. From classic hoop earrings to simple stud earrings and beautiful designs for children, we have a wide range of earrings for you. Feel free to browse our range in-store on the day of your appointment or discover our stunning earrings online to get delivered or collect in-store on the day.
