Safe Piercings for Your Little Ones
Saying that we love piercings kid’s ears sounds kind of weird. But it’s actually really cool. The wee little gals and guys who come in with their parents are super special to us. The SkinKandy Squad are specialist Piercers, proud of every piercing we do, and that means ensuring that every customer, both big and teeny-tiny, have a great experience.
In an industry that sometimes comes across as a bit, well… scary… we provide a safe and family-friendly environment using industry leading equipment and maintaining strict hygiene practices.
Here are some of the services we offer for our little customers:
Double Operator Service
This is where two of our professional piercers perform the piercing together at the same time. This helps ensure the process is nice and quick for your child.
Method of Choice
Gone are the days of the old-school, re-usable plastic guns! We use a device that is individually packaged, single-use and sterile, ensuring a safer, more hygienic procedure. It is also more gentle and quiet than the old school piercing guns, making for a nicer experience for your child.
At SkinKandy, from 13 years old onwards we offer needles as a method of choice. Simply ask one of our piercers about your options and make the choice that’s right for you.
Not only do we stock a large range of initial piercing jewellery (including titanium and solid 14kt gold), we also have a range of high quality studs and sleepers in all kinds of fun designs to change to when the piercings are healed.

“My 9 year old and 4 year old girls got their ears pierced for the first time today and the staff were amazing. Explained everything to them. What they were doing, what was going to happen, joked with them and made them comfortable. Gave them a certificate and lolly pop too. Staff wore masks and gloves. The place was very clean. Reasonably priced. Staff were on time for our appointment. I can’t really complain about anything!” – Rebecca, Fountain Gate, June 2020
