To ensure a safe and hygienic experience, ICING only uses pre-sterilized, pre-packaged earrings. We never use needles. A piercing pro first cleans the surface of your ears with a swab of sanitizing solution. They will then pierce your ear with a professional piercing system.
Which is better for piercing: a gun or a needle? The quick answer: A piercing needle is much better than a piercing gun for many reasons. Needles are generally cleaner, more accurate, and less painful than pistols.
The piercing gun (stud gun) is a special tool specially designed for use on earlobes, nose or navel. A bolt driver may only be used on the part of the body for which it is intended.
Putting an ice cube or ice bag on your ear before piercing can help. The cold numbs the area and confuses the brain as to where the pain is coming from. I do not recommend taking aspirin or ibuprofen beforehand as they thin the blood and can cause more bleeding.
Claires happens to be using a piercing gun to pierce her ears, which experts say is a lot less safe than using a needle. Not only can piercing guns hurt a lot worse than a needle, they can’t be properly sterilized and carry a high risk of infection.
A professional body piercer has access to many styles of initial jewelry that will not interfere with comfort or the healing process. Most firearms push blunt studs through the tissues of your ears, a painful process that can cause damage.
Pain scale: 5 on a scale of 1-10. The pain scale is 100% subjective and based on customer feedback. Nostril piercings are said to be slightly more painful than lip or earlobe piercings, but not as painful as septum piercings. Aftercare: Keep the area clean to avoid infection.
Nipple piercing equipment and rings are sterilized in a machine called an autoclave. Piercings are performed using sterile, single-use needles sealed in a package that opens in front of you. They don’t use thrusting weapons.
There is a Christian belief that engaging in activities or a lifestyle thought to be a sin actually makes the act a sin, even though it is not objectively clear or “fact” that the act is a sin is. Believing body piercing is a sin and doing it anyway makes it a sin – essentially a self-fulfilling prophecy.
With a gun piercing like this, the gun shoots the stud into the flesh, working its way through and displacing the tissue around the stud. This type of piercing can cause bruising and unnecessary injury to the nose. The webbing fits properly around the pin and can be moved.
Applying an ice pack or cold compress to the area can also be soothing. Just be careful not to press too hard or be too rough. Ouch! Using salt water to clean the piercing can also be soothing and help minimize pain and the risk of infection.
The anesthetic cream applied before the visit may help relieve your child’s pain somewhat. This cream is a topical anesthetic that is applied to the earlobes and helps numb the earlobes to reduce pain. Applying ice to the earlobes within 30 minutes of your visit may also help relieve some of the pain.
Should you pierce your ears at home? In a word: no. Although you can buy sterile needles, starter earrings, and ear piercing kits, having your ear pierced by a professional reduces the rate of complications like infection and improper placement.

It can cause micro tears that lead to scarring.
The stud earrings loaded in DIY piercing kits have a blunt tip and cannot pierce through the flesh of the ear with ease. It uses *blunt* force that can cause micro tears and trauma that can lead to scarring.
Piercing Guns can cause significant tissue damage.
Medically this is referred to as “blunt force trauma”. This can result in at least significant pain and swelling for the client, at most scarring and possibly an increased incidence of pinna chondritis, a severe tissue disfigurement.
Virtually painless piercing
The piercing process itself is also much safer and less painful than driving a blunt stud through the skin. A piercing needle is actually hollow and extremely sharp. It cuts through the skin and safely pushes the tissue aside to make room for the jewelry to be inserted.
Take good care of your piercing
It might bleed easily. If the swelling, redness, and bleeding persists for more than a few days, call your doctor. Prompt treatment can help prevent potentially serious complications.
