Jewelry for initial piercings should be made of material that will not react with the body: implant grade stainless steel and titanium; gold (14K or higher); or platinum. In some cases, inert plastics like Tygon® or PTFE (Teflon®) are also acceptable.
Subsequently, what earrings do they use to pierce your ears?
Surgical stainless steel earrings are typically your best bet for new piercings, as this metal is the least likely to cause an allergic reaction. Nickel and cobalt allergies are very common, so avoid these metals when you first get your ears pierced.
Beside this, can you bring your own jewelry to get pierced?
I’m not sure if it would depend on the shop but it’s really not advisable to bring your own jewelry to a piercing appointment. You‘ll have to make sure that you will only use quality and sanitized metal for your jewelry. Specifically implant grade surgical stainless steel only.
Is 10K gold OK for newly pierced ears?
No, it is not. 10K gold is gold plated, gold-filled, or vermeil jewelry, which is not ideal for sensitive ear piercings. All of these feature a layer of gold coating on a base metal.
Any earring that is made with white gold or sterling silver is a safe bet. … These are hypoallergenic materials that are great choices for earrings for people with newly–pierced ears or those who are allergic to nickel all the time.

They’re really good quality and you can get plugs for really cheap and they come really quick. They always send me good coupon codes, the prices are really cheap, only complaint I have is one time they sent me the wrong color for the product I wanted but it wasn’t that big of a deal.
Titanium is Ideal for Hypersensitive Users
Those with hypersensitivity issues should use Titanium instead of Surgical Steel. Titanium is a preferred material for initial piercings because it’s an elemental metal – it doesn’t contain nickel. Titanium is as strong as steel, but as light as aluminum.
Piercings could hurt more than tattoos, but it depends on where you’re getting the piercing. Also, some describe piercing pain as very short and intense, while tattoo pain can be drawn out and consistently painful.
Yes, absolutely. I love my piercer so I usually do 20-25% but 10-15% seems to be standard.
It’s normal to have some redness, swelling or pain for a couple of days after getting your ears pierced. But your ears should look and feel better each day. If you find that your ears do great and then suddenly start to become red, inflamed or crusty a week or two later, that’s usually a sign of infection.
