My daughter had her ears pierced at Claires a couple of years ago and she fainted between piercings (she was 16 at the time) but the piercer was happy to plough on when she came round?!? It took months for the piercings to heal, she followed the cleaning instructions to the letter, bought the soloution and was very careful.

Since then she has had another couple of piercings done by a professional piercer and they healed in no time without having to purchase over priced healing lotions (she was advised to clean her piercing with salt dissolved in cooled boiled water).

Dont go to claires. My dd worked there a few years ago. "Trained" to pierce ears, she would be first in line to say go to a tattooist etc.

Avoid Claires. Avoid guns.

I got my second lobe piercing last January and I still believe they havent healed properly. Have to keep earrings in or theyll close. A month later still had bleeding (a lot).

The gun crushed my lobes its a horrible feeling and expensive!

Have a look at reputable tattoo/piercing studios in your area. They are the pros. And Ive met the loveliest people in tattoo shops so please dont be put off!

Edit to add: I got the solution and followed their instructions extensively about cleaning and looking after your new piercings as I am terrified of picking up an infection and still ended up with a painful healing process. Lesson well learned.

Dd16 had her ears pierced 3 times at Claire's and all have been fine.
However when she wanted her nose done, I took her to a tattoo place. She went back a year later to get her lip done. I would never go anywhere else now. The owner who did it is actually a qualified nurse which somehow made me feel better as well!
Shes now mithering for her belly button doing! I just tell her she will have more holes than a sieve soon!
I doubt most of my friends (certainly not my mum! ) agree with me letting her have so many but shes a good girl and doesnt go out drinking like a lot of her friends so if this is her outlet then so be it! The only one I draw the line at is stretching her ear!

My biggest problem is I really don't like needles and might run a mile if someone came towards me with a big needle.

Thats why I was thinking of using a place that uses guns - a whimp I know

I am absolutely terrified of needles as well, last october I went to a proper piercer and they used needles to do a daith and helix piercing.
It was done by a well trained, hygienic, and knowledgable lady, who talked me through it (in a private room) told me everything I needed to know about aftercare, it wasnt intimidating at all.
I didnt even think about the needle-im having 2 more done in April.

Please dont go to Claires-ive heard so many horror stories-infected piercings are no fun.
Honestly, you'll be fine xxx

Dd doesnt either and wont even say the word blood! Even now she needs the numbing cream when they need blood off her!
Somehow the desire for piercings takes all the fear away!

If you let the piercer know you are afraid of needles then you can have it done without even seeing the needle! They are very good.

Its a lot less traumatic than having a needle essentially fired through your ear which is what a gun does.
