What makes the Inverness System different from other piercing systems?

Our patented system safely & quickly pierces ears in 3 EASY STEPS using a gentle, hand-pressured instrument and sterile, pre-sealed hypoallergenic piercing earrings. The Inverness System has two unique features designed to ensure the safest ear piercing experience possible.

  1. Our system is the only one with fully-enclosed earring capsules that prevent our piercing earrings and patented Safety Back™ from being exposed to potential contaminants prior to piercing. Unlike other systems on the market, our earrings are never exposed until they are safely inserted in the ear.
  2. Our unique patented Safety Back™ promotes safer healing by covering the sharp piercing tip and preventing the back from being squeezed too tight while your piercing heals. (Patent No. 6,074,406)
