So you are ready to take your daughter for her first ear piercing and you don’t know where to go. Well, let me tell you! 32 years ago, it happened to my daughters: they went and got their ears pierced crooked! They had to pull out their pretty new earrings, let their ears heal, and pierce them all over again.
When I saw the outcome, I promised myself I would never let another child go through that horrible experience like my daughters. I learned to pierce ears 32 years ago and have been piercing them straight ever since. Not one mishap!
When you go to some other places, they usually want to pierce with solid gold earrings for allergy reasons, but this can lead to other, worse problems. Many gold posts are created very thin in order to save money. Very thin piercings are vulnerable to infections, breaking, falling out in bed, and closing up.
Gold-filled earrings, on the other hand, have thicker posts. Thicker posts create a better initial hole that will heal better and safer. At Atlanta Diamond Design in Cumming, I promise to create a better experience for your daughter’s ear piercing. I take the time to reassure and calm her before sterilizing and marking the placement of the earrings for Mom’s or Dad’s approval. Only then will I pierce them.
We do not recommend using alcohol wipes to clean new piercings—instead, use antibacterial ointment like Neosporin, and only for the first three days.
When you are ready to have your daughter’s ears pierced, we highly recommend that you try us. We have had 100% success rate, with no crooked piercings in the bunch!
