The piercing gun is placed on the mark, and the trigger squeezed, and then released slowly.

AFTER-CARE FOR PIERCED EARS

Avoid touching newly pierced ears with dirty hands to reduce the risk of infection.

Use a clean cotton swab dipped in salty water to clean the new piercings.

Do not remove the earrings used to do the piercing before four to six weeks to allow healing. Removing them earlier can cause infection and bruising. Also, the hole will close.

After removing the piercing earring, clean the ear well and reinsert earrings that are skin friendly. Do not leave the pierced hole bare, since it might seal.
