INFORMATION ON LITTLE LOBES
Little lobes start at age 12 and under. Appointment required, we see children 12 and under from open till 5pm daily.
ALL CHILDREN MUST BE ACTIVELY SUPERVISED
Inksmith has a NO unattended child policy. All children must have an adult present that is NOT recieving a tattoo or piercing. This is for the safety of everyone involved.
You will be asked to fill out a Hold Harmless agreement, please bring a form of I.D. for yourself as well as your child (birth certificates are applicable). Afterwards you will be asked to select which jewelry will be used for the piercing before getting started.
Now that you've had your ear lobes pierced, please make sure you are not touching them without freshly washed hands. Keep in mind that we should never sleep on fresh piercings. Utilize a travel pillow if you are a side sleeper.
Clean your piercings 2-3 times daily for the first week, and twice daily for the remainder of the healing process. Utilize Q-tips or non-woven gauze to keep the piercing site clean and dry.
If your child bathes or showers nightly, please dry their hair before bedtime to reduce the moisture and pressure combintation, which is our leading issue in healing lobe piercings.
Lobe piercings take approximately 10 weeks to heal, keep the initial jewelry in for the full 10 weeks. After 10 weeks feel free to change the jewelry into anything you'd like, keeping something in for the first full year as to make the piercing viable.
Please do not submerge your fresh piercing for 14 days. That includes pools, hot tubs, lakes, bathtubs, and oceans. After 10 weeks you can change your jewelry into anything you like. Keep in mind you are more than welcome to come back for free jewelry changes forever.
