Ear Piercing Backs: Understand Your Options

Inverness - Ear Piercing Backs

As you research ear piercing options, it is important to understand everything about the piercing process, including the quality and features of the starter earrings that will be used. While it’s fun to talk about all the beautiful styles and metal choices available, this blog is starting at the back, literally.

Inverness is the only ear piercing system using the exclusive Inverness Safety Back™, a specially-designed earring clutch that covers the starter earring’s sharp piercing tip and prevents the back from being squeezed too tight against the ear during healing.

Most piercing systems come with traditional butterfly backs that leave the sharp tip exposed and can be overtightened (pushed too close to the ear) during the healing period. An earring back that is squeezed too tight can cause swelling and infection. In worst case scenarios, the butterfly back can become embedded in the ear and will require surgery to remove it.

Safety & Comfort

The Inverness Safety Back™ locks into place, completely covering the sharp tip and preventing the back from being pushed too close to the ear. This feature promotes safer healing by allowing ample space and air flow during the healing period.

The covered tip also protects little fingers from accidental pokes and makes sleeping in starter earrings much more comfortable.

Aftercare Tip

Already have your ears pierced with the Inverness System? We recommend cleaning your earrings and Safety Back™ every time you clean your piercing. Also, after cleaning and before bed, be sure to check that your back is securely in place.
