Our piercings are safe, simple and gentle. Claire’s ear piercing system requires no needles and are held to the highest hygiene standards. Our equipment is sanitized before and after every use and the instrument itself does not come into contact with the ear at any time.
Thereof, does ear piercing at Claire’s hurt?
The pain factor is irrelevant; don’t get your ears pierced at Claire’s. They use a piercing gun which is unhygenic (unable to sterilize properly) and the piercing gun method just forces the jewellery in your lobe.
One may also ask, does Claires use a piercing gun?
Claire’s started offering ear piercing services in 1978, several years after both Inverness and Studex introduced their own versions of the piercing gun. Affordable ear piercing services? Sounds great!
Where is the safest place to get ears pierced?
Any piercing, no matter who administers it, is a risk. Shopping mall kiosks are generally safe places to get your ears pierced, but it’s still a risk. You can schedule an appointment to have your ears pierced by a dermatologist or other healthcare professional.
Using piercing guns, like at Claire’s, causes massive trauma to the skin and flesh as instead of a hollow, sharp needle, the ear is pierced with a solid and fairly blunt earring, forced through the ear at speed. This can cause a lot of scarring, and the ear will take longer to heal.
Ask your doctor to prescribe a topical numbing cream with lidocaine derivatives that can help anesthetize the earlobes. Layer a thick coat of the cream onto the lobes 30 to 60 minutes before the piercing. Experts also say that applying ice 15 to 30 minutes before the piercing might help numb the pain receptors.
You may feel a pinch and some throbbing after, but it shouldn’t last long. The pain from either piercing method is probably equivalent. The ear has nerves all through it. But the fatty tissue in the earlobe has less than other areas, so it may feel less painful.
There is no harm in bringing your own earrings provided they are light in weight and not too heavy for you to carry as it pains after the piercing is done . The pain may be prolonged for weeks so wearing heavy earings will create discomfort and will give you more pain.
never never never NEVER EVER get anything pierced at a claires or hair salon or anywhere that is not a professional tatoo or piercing parlor and that will use a piercing gun. They are not hygienic place and they use un hygienic equipment.

Standard earlobe piercings from a professional piercing studio should cost between £10-£20, while a cartilage piercing can cost a bit more, between £25-£40. The most important thing is to not simply go for the cheapest option, and make sure you are being pierced by a professional and experienced piercing artist.
Does getting your ears pierced with a needle hurt more than a gun? No, you don’t hurt more with a needle because needles are very sharp and the best for body piercing. It doesn’t damage your skin and make healing easier and faster, while a gun damages your skin tissues and makes healing more lengthy and painful.
Getting Pierced with a Needle
The process of using a needle to do a piercing in an area of the body other than the ear lobe is much safer, and our customers say, less painful than using a piercing gun.
Most piercing guns aggressively force blunt ended studs through the tissue of your ears which is painful and unnatural, and can cause serious damage. This process simply forces the stud through your ear, wedging the jewelry between irritated and now-inflamed skin.
