Is Your Daughter Ready to Care for Newly Pierced Ears?

She’s a year older, and now that she has started a new school year, you’ve heard from her over and over again that she wants her ears pierced. The big question is: is she ready?

Here are some questions you can ask your daughter to determine whether now is the right time for her first piercing!

  1. Why do you want to have your ears pierced?

The answer to this could be as simple as personal style, or it could be more of a social reason. Whatever it is, it’s important to know why she is suddenly so interested in having her ears pierced so you can talk about it together in greater detail.

  1. Do you understand how to care for newly-pierced ears?

Make sure she knows the responsibility that comes with newly-pierced ears. Aftercare is just as important (if not more) than the piercing process itself. If she’s unfamiliar with the aftercare process, show her our guide to ear piercing aftercare on our website.

  1. Have you asked your coach about wearing earrings?

If your daughter is an athlete, this is something to consider as many contact sports don’t allow for players to wear earrings during practice or games. If this is something she’s serious about, encourage her to talk to her sports coach and ask these questions.

  1. Have you thought about where you’d like to get your ears pierced?

This can be a decision both of you come to together. Inverness is used by retail stores, pharmacies, beauty salons, medical offices, and jewelry stores throughout the US and over 40 countries worldwide.
