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.
In this regard, is Claire’s a safe place for ear piercing?
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.

Is it better to get ears pierced with gun or needle?
Having your piercing artist using a piercing needle is classed as safer for your skin as the piercing gun is classed as blunt force trauma. This can damage the soft tissues in your earlobes. Overall, the piercing needle is usually the better option for most people.
There’s no reason to rotate your piercing. You could damage the delicate, healing skin by rotating the jewelry. In the past, rotating the jewelry was recommended, but it has been found to cause damage that can lead to infection and scarring. For happy healing, NEVER rotate your body jewelry.
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.
“Piercing guns can not be sterilized because they are made of plastic. … One woman claimed that she had her ears pierced a whopping three times at Claire’s, only to be forced to remove them every time amid severe pain, oozing pus, and crustiness.
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.
Some people can change their earrings after 3 weeks without feeling any pain, meaning their piercing wound has recovered. However, others may change their earrings within the same time frame and start bleeding. As stated above, different people heal within different time frames.
