EAR CURATION

At the heart of ear curation lies a collection of the most popular and timeless piercings. The Lobe piercing remains a classic, offering endless versatility for a subtle sparkle or a bold statement. Venture upwards to discover the Helix, a canvas for creativity with rings and studs that trace the outer rim of the ear. The Conch invites a statement piece nestled within the ear's central shell, while the Tragus serves as the perfect spot for a subtle glint of metal that catches the light with every turn. And let's not forget the Rook and Daith, where intricate hoops and barbells create a look as unique as a fingerprint, nestled within the ear's intricate folds.

Embrace the journey of curating your ear gallery with us. Whether you're looking to add a single piece or envision a full ensemble, our collection of high-quality piercings awaits to bring your vision to life. Each piercing not only symbolizes a moment, a memory, or a piece of your essence but also tells a story that is inherently yours. Step into our world, where self-expression meets elegance, and let your ears speak volumes.

WHY PIERCING MATERIAL & METHOD MATTERS - MUCH MORE THAN YOU PROBABLY  THINK!

As a well established and renowned medical aesthetic clinic, you know we know what to do to keep you safe, and ensure you get the highest quality treatments at the most competitive prices. After all, that's what we've always been about. 

 

But did you know that the methods of piercing used, and the material choice for your initial piercing is crucial for your health and appearance?

We prioritise your safety, comfort, and the quality of your piercing experience, which is why we use only the best practices and materials at our studio. Here's why choosing us for your piercing needs is a wise decision:

Why Not Piercing Guns?

Piercing guns can cause significant trauma to the tissue due to the blunt force used to insert the jewellery. They are also challenging to sterilise properly, increasing the risk of infection. We use a needle for a more precise, less traumatic piercing experience that promotes quicker and healthier healing.

Why Not 9K Gold for Initial Piercings?

While gold is a luxurious material, 9K gold isn't recommended for initial piercings as it contains a higher percentage of other metals, which might trigger allergic reactions or affect the healing process. We use solid 18K gold, which is purer, hypoallergenic, and safer for new piercings.

Why Not Gold-Plated Jewellery?

Gold-plated jewellery may look appealing and cost-effective, but the plating can wear off over time, exposing the base metal, which could lead to allergic reactions or skin irritation. We use solid gold jewellery to ensure durability, safety, and a long-lasting luster without the risk of exposing your piercing to potentially harmful metals.

Why Not Sterling Silver?

Piercing with sterling silver is not recommended, especially for fresh piercings. Sterling silver contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, typically copper, which can oxidize and tarnish when exposed to body fluids and air. This tarnishing can lead to silver salts being released, which can get absorbed into the skin, potentially causing a permanent dark stain known as argyria.

For new piercings, it's essential to use materials that are inert, hypoallergenic, and resistant to corrosion, such as implant-grade titanium, solid 14K or 18K gold, or implant-grade stainless steel (for those without nickel sensitivities). These materials help ensure a safe healing process without the risk of allergic reactions, infections, or other complications.

Once a piercing is fully healed, sterling silver jewelry can be worn for short periods, but it's not ideal for long-term wear in body piercings due to the risk of tarnishing and potential irritation. Always prioritize materials that are safe and specifically designed for body piercings to maintain optimal health and comfort.

Why Not 316L Stainless Steel / Surgical Steel?

If they use it for surgery, it's got to be safe for piercings, right?

Wrong.

'Surgical steel' is just a catchy marketing term. There are no specific requirements for what has to go 'in' surgical steel. Steel isn't just 'steel', some is designed to be used in cars, some of it is designed to be used in electronics, some of it is designed for cutlery, buildings, etc. And whilst it is true that some steel is used for bone screws, hip replacements, etc, you need to remember that each 'steel' piece is basically a recipe of alloys and impurities, with each piece designed to be the strongest and safest for the purpose for which it is being used. You therefore have zero idea of what the 'surgical steel' you are having for your body piercing is actually made out of.

Whilst 316L and 316LVM stainless steel / surgical steel are commonly used in body jewellery, all surgical steel and stainless steel contains nickel, a very common allergen and should never ever be used on anyone who has a known nickel allergy. Stainless and surgical steel can also contain other alloys such as chromium and molybdenum, which may lead to skin irritation , prevent adequate healing, and / or cause allergic reactions - especially in new piercings. Whilst it is true that some surgical steel - specifically implant grade surgical steel may be perfectly safe for your piercing,  piercers themselves may not  know whether the surgical steel piercings they are offering you is suitable and safe, or not. As there is no formal definition on what constitutes a "surgical stainless steel", product manufacturers and distributors often use the term to refer to any grade of corrosion resistant steel, so unless your piercer has performed their due diligence and checked the certificates prior to purchase, that surgical steel body jewellery you may be eyeing up may not be safe. So although surgical steel body piercing jewellery is cheap to purchase, and therefore gives high profit margins to piercers, and / or simply allows them to keep their costs to their customers extremely low, it may not be your piercer doing you dirty: they may just not be as informed as they probably ought to be.

For our budget friendly piercing options, we therefore opt for titanium, a lightweight, hypoallergenic material ideal for healing piercings, ensuring a safer and more comfortable healing process. Titanium suitable for use in initial piercings must be of the highest medical grade, and must be ASTM F136 or ISO5832 compliant.

By choosing Sebastian Rose for your piercings, you're opting for a premium piercing experience with the utmost care for your health and satisfaction. We will not compromise your health to attain higher profits, and that's why we commit to using the highest quality materials like needles for precision, titanium for safety, and solid 18K gold for luxury and hypoallergenic properties, setting the standard for excellence in piercing.
