Earlobe Piercing for Kids age 6-12

Precision Body Arts is happy to accommodate parents looking to have their children's earlobes pierced in a professional environment. Please be aware that this is a specialty service that requires an appointment and specific identification documentation. 

We perform earlobe piercing for children aged 6-9 by appointment only. We choose to not offer earlobe piercing below the age of 6 years. If you are interested in a professional piercing for children aged 5 or younger please contact the Piercing Emporium in Worcester, MA. Earlobes for 10 years and older can be taken by walk in during normal business hours by either Ryan or Evan. 

We require the same documentation for younger kids as we do for all minors. This includes:

  • A government issued photo identification for the parent or legal guardian.

  • A government issued photo identification for the child being pierced.

  • A birth certificate or other bonafide document verifying parental relation or status of legal guardianship.

  • All documents must be originals, copies or digital documents will not be accepted.

  • Accepted government issued photo identifications include: Passports, State issued non-driver IDs, School IDs / bus pass / current yearbook, Military IDs, Police or officially issued minor ID cards. 

Once you have fulfilled our identification requirements feel free to contact Ryan via email at ryanpba@hotmail.com to book a consultation appointment. Child ear piercing is a specialty service that requires additional time, as such we prefer to book appointments during off-hours to reduce potential stress to our clients and staff, while ensuring your kids have the full attention they deserve. For children aged 6-9 we have appointments available in the morning before we open on select days, as well as some Sundays. All appointments are booked as consultations rather than a service. Children aged 10+ can walk in during normal business hours. 

 

We prefer to talk to the client and parents first to be sure the child is comfortable and ready to be pierced. If after the consultation the parent, client, and our staff are all comfortable we can perform the piercings in the same visit. If anyone feels that they need more time, including our staff, the piercing will be put off to a later date. While we understand that this may be inconvenient to some parents we do this to ensure the client does not have a negative or scary experience. 

About our piercing services. 

  • All piercings performed at Precision Body Arts are done with individual use, sterilized piercing needles. Piercing guns are never used by Precision Body Arts, as they can cause increased tissue trauma and can not be properly sterilized.

  • Our standard jewelry used for earlobe piercings is made from ASTM F-136 implant certified titanium to avoid material allergies and sensitivities. We have a wide assortment of colors, gems, and styles for clients to choose from. 

  • Our full aftercare information can be read HERE. Our suggested aftercare product is Wound Wash Saline which is available here at PBA as well as most pharmacies. We do not suggest chemical cleaners for piercing aftercare (this includes mall "ear care" solution). 

  • We do not pierce both earlobes simultaneously as this can place the client or staff at risk if the client moves abruptly. Each piercing is done individually in the same visit. 

  • Typical healing time for an earlobe piercing is 3 months, jewelry should not be removed or changed during this time. 

  • Swimming and standing water should be avoided for the first month of healing, showering is not an issue. 

  • Cost for an earlobe piercing with jewelry starts at roughly $70-80 per piercing, price will vary based on jewelry chosen. 

  • Typical visit time including consultation, jewelry selection, paperwork, and piercing is 20-30 minutes. 

  • Currently all piercings for minors under 10 are performed by PBA's owner, Ryan Ouellette. Earlobes for minors aged 10 and older are done by both Ryan and Evan.
