We use a hand pressured instrument (not to be confused with the old spring loaded guns). We also use fully encapsulated and ultra sharp posts which reduces the initial piercing sensation, and unlike the old spring loaded gun, our instrument does not shatter the cartilage. 
After testing different processes, we determined that the piercing system we use is the safest, most gentle and sterile. For several reasons:

1. Fully Enclosed Earring Cartridges
Prevents exposure to cross contamination.

2. The patented Safety Back™ shields the sharp piercing post and prevents the earring from being over tightened to the ear. This provides optimal air flow helping promote healing.

3. Hypo-allergenic earrings* All earrings are Manufactured in the United States and are made compliant to FDA guidelines. Alloys you can trust!

4. Sterility is Guaranteed. Unless the package is opened or damaged. Inverness follows strict sterilization protocols which allow for the written guarantee on every earring cassette.

5. Hand Pressured Piercing Instrument. Our piercing instrument delivers a gentle and accurate piercing. The unique design ensures that only the disposable earring cartridge touches the ear.

The Inverness Ear Piercing System we use has been in use for more than 40 years now in many jewelry stores, department stores, salons, pharmacies, doctors’ offices, and body piercing shops in over 40 countries around the world. To date, the system has been used to successfully pierce over 200 million pairs of ears.

The Inverness System has two unique features designed to ensure the safest ear piercing experience possible.

1. Inverness is the only ear piercing system with fully-enclosed earring capsules that prevent our piercing earrings and patented Safety Back™ from being exposed to potential contaminants prior to piercing. Our earring capsules are packaged in sealed, sterilized cartridges that are not opened until selected for piercing. Unlike other systems on the market, our earrings are never exposed until they are safely inserted in the ear.

2. Our patented Safety Back™ allows for the safest healing possible by shielding the piercing tip and preventing the earring back from being squeezed too tight. This allows for proper airflow and prevents the earring back from becoming embedded during the healing process. Inverness is the ONLY ear piercing system with the patented Safety Back™.

Why do you say “gentle”?

Is there a risk associated with the sharp tip of the piercing earring?

Why do you use the word “instrument”? Isn’t it a piercing “gun”?

Where can I have my ears pierced with the Inverness System?

What is the gauge of your piercing earrings?

There are a number of reasons the Inverness System is both safe & gentle:

1. Unlike loud piercing guns that shoot a spring-loaded piercing earring through the tissue, our hand-pressured instrument is very smooth and quiet.

2. Our system will pierce your ears and attach our patented Safety Clutch™ in one quick, smooth motion.

3. Our piercing earrings are specially designed with ultra-thin piercing posts & a finely honed piercing tip to help the earrings glide through the lobe as easily as possible. In fact, most people report they feel no discomfort at all when they are pierced with the Inverness System.

The posts of our earrings are .030” in diameter which is between 20 and 21 gauge.
