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.
According to Mortensen, you can alleviate some of the pain with a numbing cream applied to the piercing location.

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.
It turns out, piercing guns are unsanitary and apply too much force to the ear. Every Claire’s I’ve ever gone to uses one. You want to use a sterile needle which has been put through intense heat for cleaning purposes. If you were to put a piercing gun through such heat, it would melt.
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.
