Do you pierce for individuals below 16?
Yes if the individual is accompanied by a parent/ legal guardian or has obtained a parental written consent.
Do you pierce for infants?
We pierce for infants above the age of 2 months old. Feel free to consult any Stellar Piercing Technicians to ensure your child is ready for a safe ear piercing procedure.
Do you pierce two ear lobes simultaneously?
Walk-in customers will likely get their ears pierce one after another. For simultaneous piercings, kindly indicate your preference when making an appointment here.
Which part of the ear do you pierce?
As all ears are shaped differently, feel free to consult any Stellar Piercing Technicians on your best piercing position.
What kind of piercing studs can I choose from?
Stellar offers Singapore’s most premium piercing studs materials including solid 18K, 14K gold, medical-grade titanium and surgical steel.
We have designs that cater for infants, schooling children and individuals with thick or thin ear lobes. Visit any Stellar store to check out the latest seasonal designs.
I have a medical condition (e.g. diabetes, keloid, pregnancy-related issues), can I still have my ears pierced?
Please consult your doctor to obtain a written consent before doing the ear piercing.
My previous piercings have closed, but I felt something when I touch my earlobes, can I do a re-pierce?
What you may have felt could be a scar tissue or cyst. Kindly consult any Stellar Piercing Technicians to examine your earlobes to ensure you are ready for a safe ear piercing.
Is it painful?
Not at all, because Stellar Piercing Technicians are trained to use the perfect amount of hand pressure and an accurate angle to gently pierce on earlobes of different shapes and thickness, making it a virtually painless experience.
Is it safe?
Our piercing stations and tools are sterilised daily with a strict routine. Our piercing studs which will come into contact with your earlobes are vacuumed packed and are enclosed inside disposable cartridges to ensure a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene.
Besides the hygiene aspects, all Stellar Piercing Technicians are certified upon graduating from their intensive training course to ensure your piercing experience is safe and professional.
What should I be expecting during the ear piercing procedure?
- CLEAN: We will first clean your earlobes
- MARK: We will then mark your piercing position
- PIERCE: Once you have agreed on the position, we will perform the piercing
Do you use a piercing gun?
Our advanced piercing instrument is a tool that is operated by hand-pressure. Unlike spring-loaded piercing guns, our piercing instrument allows the Stellar Piercing Technicians to gently pierce on your delicate earlobes with minimal sound and impact.
How long do I need to keep the piercing studs on?
The initial healing period takes 2 months (for ear lobe piercing), and 3 months (for helix piercing) before you can replace the piercing studs. We do encourage you to keep your earrings on for 24/7 during the first year, following your ear piercing.
You may switch your piercing studs to Stellar’s hypoallergenic earrings after the initial healing period. Do avoid frequent changes of ear studs during the first year of piercing.
How long does it actually take for my ear piercings to be fully seasoned?
It depends on the individual’s skin, but most people would take up to 1 year to have their ear piercings fully healed and seasoned.
During the initial stage of healing, your skin will start to form around the ear studs, creating an ear hole. Rough handling on the ear piercing (e.g. pulling, putting pressure on piercing) will irritate the new delicate skin that will result in a delay of healing.
Do follow Stellar’s Aftercare Routine diligently to ensure a quick healing period.
How do I know when my ear piercings have fully healed and seasoned?
It usually takes about 1 year. When your ear piercings are fully seasoned, you should not see any signs of redness, swelling, white crusts or yellow liquids around your piercing site.
What is the aftercare procedure?
Every pair of piercing studs comes with a FREE aftercare lotion
Place one drop of the lotion at the front and back of the piercing, and gently rotate the stud one round from the behind.
We will provide you with more aftercare steps and measures after your ear piercing procedure.
Can I use alcohol to clean my ear piercings?
Alcohol has a strong anti-bacterial content that causes dry skin and kills the good bacteria that is needed for your healing. We recommend you to use Stellar Aftercare Lotion that is alcohol-free to support your healing, as it is gentle on the skin.
Can I swim after piercing?
Avoid swimming on the first week after your ear piercing.
If your child has weekly swimming lessons, do plan to get the piercings done after the lesson so that your child will be ready to swim by the following week.
Should I remove my studs before I shower or sleep?
You must not remove your piercing studs during the initial healing period. Keep your ear studs on 24/7 in the first year from piercing to prevent closure of piercing.
Do you enlarge ear piercings or fix ripped earlobes?
We do not provide such services.
Can you help me pierce with my own ear studs?
We are unable to do so because our piercing studs are enclosed inside disposable cartridges that will only fit in our piercing tool. Therefore we are unable to fit your personal ear studs into our tool.
