Some people assume earrings can be removed and easily
re-inserted; this is not the case. You should only switch
into new earrings after the healing period, which is 6 weeks
for an earlobe piercing and 12 weeks for a cartilage piercing.

YES. Inverness does recommend, however, that babies have a
current D.P.T. shot. This first D.P.T. shot is usually administered
by a pediatrician at 6 weeks of age.
the Inverness System be used for body piercing?
No, absolutely not. The Inverness Ear Piercing System is designed
to safely pierce only the earlobe and the outer cartilage
portion of the ear. The system should never be used to pierce
any other body parts.
How long does it take for an ear
piercing to heal?
Inverness recommends that the piercing earrings are left in
for 6 weeks after an earlobe piercing and 12 weeks for cartilage.
How is the cartilage different from
Cartilage is the translucent, elastic tissue located in the
upper portion of the ear. Think of the cartilage area as two
separate sections - the skin covering the cartilage and the
cartilage itself. Cartilage differs from the earlobe primarily
in that it has a limited blood supply.
Is a cartilage piercing as gentle as
a lobe piercing?
Yes. Cartilage ear piercing with the Inverness System is just
as gentle as a lobe piercing.
