Sensitive Skin and Ear Piercings

There are a few things to consider when you're thinking about adding multiple ear piercings or ear cuffs to your ears.

The first is the type of metal you want to use. If you have sensitive skin, you'll want to avoid using nickel-based metals. Gold, silver, and stainless steel are all great options for people with sensitive skin as they are the least reactive. The next thing to consider is the size of the holes you're piercing.

If you're planning on adding multiple piercings, you'll want to make sure the holes are big enough to accommodate the jewellery you want to add. If you're just adding a few piercings, you can get away with smaller holes. 

Finally, you'll need to decide on the placement of your piercings. There are a few different ways to do this. You can go for a symmetrical look by piercing both ears at the same time. Or, you can go for an asymmetrical look by piercing one ear at a time. 

This is why using ear cuffs is a great way to trial the different types of jewellery and placings on your ears.

Once you've decided on the metal, size, and placement of your piercings, it's time to start shopping for jewellery! You may decide that you would rather keep a larger selection of ear cuffs instead of a new piercing and sometimes this can be more versatile. 

There are a few different types of earrings you can choose from. Studs are the most popular type of earring, and they come in a variety of different metals, sizes, and shapes. Hoops are another popular type of earring, and they can be worn in a variety of different ways.

If you're looking for something a little bit different, you can also try out ear cuffs. Ear cuffs are great for people who want to add a little bit of edge to their look. They can be worn on their own or with other piercings.

What is an ear cuff?

An ear cuff is a small piece of jewellery that attaches to the earlobe, usually with a clip or clamp. Ear cuffs can be worn on their own or in addition to other ear piercings, and are a great way to add a little bit of extra flair to your look.

Ear cuffs do not require you to get another ear piercing so this is a great way to test the boundaries of your style and see what you prefer. We love swapping out from our collection of ear cuffs to see what earring goes with our other collections of jewellery. 

What are the different types of ear piercings?

There are a few different types of ear piercings that you can get, and the type of piercing you choose will largely be down to personal preference.

The most common types of ear piercings are:

Lobe - This is the most common type of ear piercing and is usually done at a young age. The lobe piercing is relatively simple and quick to heal, making it a good choice for those who are new to ear piercings.

Helix - The helix piercing is located at the top of the ear, and is a popular choice for those who want to add a bit of edge to their look. This type of piercing can take a little longer to heal than a lobe piercing, but the results are definitely worth it!

Conch - The conch piercing is located in the centre of the ear, and is a popular choice for those who want to show off their unique style. This type of piercing can take a little longer to heal than other types of ear piercings, but the results are definitely worth it!

Industrial - The industrial piercing is two piercings that are connected with a barbell, and is a popular choice for those who want to add a bit of edge to their look. This type of piercing can take a little longer to heal than other types of ear piercings, but the results are definitely worth it!

What are the benefits of multiple ear piercings?

There are a few benefits to having multiple ear piercings, and the most obvious one is that you can mix and match different styles of jewellery to create a unique look that is totally your own.

Another benefit of having multiple ear piercings is that it can actually help to balance out your face. If you have a small face, then having multiple piercings on each ear can help to make your face look more proportionate.

Finally, having multiple ear piercings can also be a great way to express your personality and style. If you want to stand out from the crowd, then having multiple piercings is definitely the way to go!

How much does it cost to get multiple ear piercings?

The cost of getting multiple ear piercings will depend on a few factors, such as the type of piercings you choose, the jewellery you choose, and the piercing studio you go to.

However, as a general guide, you can expect to pay anywhere from £40-£100 for a two piercings one on each lobe, depending on the factors mentioned above.

How long does it take to heal multiple ear piercings?

The healing time for multiple ear piercings will depend on the type of piercings you choose, as well as the jewellery you choose.

As a general guide, you can expect lobe and helix piercings to take around 4-6 weeks to heal, while conch and industrial piercings can take up to 12 weeks to heal.

This will all depend on your body and how you look after your ear piercing after.
