Hello, I'm Owen Beane, I work at Chameleon Tattoo in Cambridge, Massachusetts. is the website. Chameleon Tattoo's been here more than 10 years, but ten years as such with tattooing, over the last 14 years I've been doing body piercing here in Cambridge and I'll be talking to you about piercings today. What you need to know about ear piercing, which we are talking about ear lope piercing is don't get it done with the Gun because the Gun piercing system is just not a clean practice and has trouble after care instructions. The placement is really important, you want the piercing to be, if we are talking about first lope hole, you want it to be left or right, like centered with the lope and then up and down just a little below center. As long as you are doing it with the needle, you can choose between a piercing stud or like a barbell of some kind or a captive B ring. The ear lope piercing is really the easiest one of them all to have done and of them all to heal. So, not a bad place to start if you are thinking about getting it to piercing that's what you really want to start with because it is very very easy to heal that part of the body, it isn't effected by a whole lot of stuff. So, its easy and that's what you need to know about the ear lope but don't do it with the Gun. Please.what you need to know about ear piercing.
