Ear piercing is one of the oldest forms of body modification. It occurs when holes are created on the ear lobes or cartilage to allow the insertion of decorative ornaments, such as earrings. Ear piercing in children has been around for centuries as part of ritualistic and cultural traditions.
A truly sterile process for sanitation, following every safety protocol.
We offer medical ear piercing services at Happy Kids Clinic. Prior to piercing, the area to be punctured is thoroughly cleaned with an alcohol pad and pierced with a single-use sterile tool from its previously unopened packaging to prevent cross-contamination.
Furthermore, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) stated that if the piercing is performed in a sterile environment and is cared for, there is little risk.
