Ear lobe piercing

Hey i was wondering wheres a good safe place to get an ear lobe piercing?
I already have a left one, i just want one on my right ear. i dont really care about the needle vs gun thing cuz it's only the ear lobe.
maybe somewhere thats like 10 bucks?

I would recommend going to a body piercer and getting it done properly, rather than some goofball working in a mall with a dirty piercing gun.

Anybody know about any problems piercing cartilage? I heard ardene’s stopped doing it because somebody went blind from getting it pierced. I heard this a super long time ago so I am not sure but can that really happen?

Like SkinnyPupp said, go to a professional piercer found at most tattoo shops for such advice as opposed to some high school dropout working at Ardene.

If it's just the lobes, it's safe at places like Claires or Ardene's, they actually make you sign papers now. If it's anything else beyond the lobes I'd go to professional piercers.

No personal experience however, they are a reputable shop with many years of experience. Another excellent and reputable professional piercer can be found at Funhouse Tattoos located on I believe 14th and Cambie (right at the corner.) Give them a call in advance to make sure the piercer is in. The staff and professionalism at Funhouse Tattoos is excellent (if that matters to you.)

For future reference, I got my ear pierced at Merle Norman earlier, and it went over well.

In and out in five minutes, painless, and the piercer went over everything carefully and answered all my questions.

$43 bucks for two studs + solution. Prices will be vary depending on which stud you pick (piercing is free, and solution extra).

wat everybody else said. just go to a body piercing. if you can't spare $40 bucks for a proper piercing your not old enough for one.

got my done at adrenaline by kyle. He re did my left gunned lobe at 8g. very professional but the price is a little high.

Anyone recommend a suitable place to have kids' ears pierced? Can't imagine bringing a kid to a tattoo shop to get it done by a body piercer

+1 on this, went in today and the lady went over all the questions I had. I got it for 36$ total. Also the lady mentioned (since I only had one ear pierced) as long as I keep both piercings and the receipt I could go in and get my other pierced for free whenever I wanted.

I have 18 piercings in my ears....I always find that when it is done with a needle, it heals better.

Getting it done with a ring instead of a stud also helps.
