This was the hands-down most popular recommendation. They pierce all ages (as young as 3 weeks old) and appointments are recommended

Pro tip: “Both ears [can] be pierced at the same time. And buy extra earring backings as you will lose them.”

Next! Tattoos and Body Piercings

At Next!, they do not use piercing guns as they are unsanitary, cause unnecessary tissue damage, and the jewellery does not promote healing. They take into account any nervousness that children may be feeling:

“We also will not pierce anyone who is unable to communicate that they want this piercing and that they know it will hurt. Piercings are a permanent cosmetic alteration to the body and no one but the owner of the body being pierced can consent to that.”
