WHAT'S THE MATERIAL?
MG Fine Jewerly creates all the piercings in 14k gold with lab-grown diamonds.
HOW LONG DO I KEEP IT IN BEFORE CHANGING IT?
Changing your piercing is all dependent on how your piercing is healing. We recommend waiting at least 6 weeks for lobe piercings and 12 weeks for cartilage. Once this time has passed you are fine to change your jewellery but the piercing may still get irritated from time to time, if this happens we recommend going back to your piercing care routine until it calms.
DOES GETTING A PIERCING HURT?
Most piercings are just a slight pinch for a second, and most of our clients saying, “it was so much easier than I thought it would be”, or “that didn’t hurt at all”.
HOW IS IT DONE?
We perform all of our piercings with single use, sterilized surgical needles.
They are extremely sharp, therefore making the piercing as painless as possible. You get to watch us break open the needle package, and dispose of the needle immediately after the procedure.
MY PIERCING LOOKED GREAT RIGHT AFTER I GOT IT. IT’S BEEN A WEEK AND NOW IT LOOKS CROOKED.
Swelling can affect the way the jewelry sits in the piercing wound. We will have you check our markings before each piercing, and have you check the piercing after the jewelry is placed in the piercing to get your approval.There is minimal swelling immediately after the piercing, so if you were pleased with the placement, but your piercing looks crooked a few days after the piercing when swelling is at it’s worst, give the piercing several more days to heal before making a final determination on straightness.
SHOULD I ROTATE MY JEWELRY DURING THE HEALING PROCESS?
Contrary to popular belief, it is best to leave your jewelry alone while your piercing is healing. Therefore, we do not recommend the jewelry or continually rotating it. A piercing is a puncture wound so it heals from the sides of the piercing towards the center. Excessive moving of the jewelry in the piercing can tear the new tissue that is healing.
SHOULD I USE ALCOHOL TO CLEAN MY PIERCING?
DO NOT use any type of alcohol to clean your piercing. Alcohol is not meant for internal use, and will only irritate and further complicate the healing process. You should use salt water to clean it.
WHAT'S THE PRICE FOR A PIERCING?
Our price range is from 75 euro up to 590 euro.

FROM WHAT AGE CAN I GET PIERCED?

If you are 10-15 years old we can pierce your ears with the permission from a parent or legal guardian, they will have to bring along ID for themselves and the minor. The adult will have to do the consent form.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER RESTRICTIONS?
We cannot pierce you if you have taken any blood thinning medication 24hours beforehand (e.g. Aspirin).
Are pregnant or are nursing.
You must have eaten in the last 4 hours before getting your ears pierced, to avoid feeling ill or faint.
HOW MANY PIERCINGS CAN I GET AT ONE TIME?
The total amount of piercings you can have during one appointment is subject to consultation with the piercer on the day.
