Cartilage & Other Piercings
Can the Inverness System be used for body piercing?
No. The Inverness Ear Piercing System is designed to pierce the earlobe and the outer cartilage of the ear. Our system should never be used to pierce any other body parts.
Is a cartilage piercing as gentle as a lobe piercing?
Yes. Cartilage ear piercing with the Inverness System is just as gentle as a lobe piercing.
How is the ear cartilage different from the earlobe?
Cartilage is the strong, flexible tissue located in the upper portion of the ear. Cartilage differs from the earlobe primarily in that it has a limited blood supply.
How long does it take for an ear piercing to heal?
Inverness recommends that you leave your piercing earrings in and follow your aftercare instructions for 6 weeks after an earlobe piercing and 12 weeks after a cartilage piercing.
Is it OK to change my earrings or take them out during the healing period?
You should only switch into new earrings after the healing period. Newly pierced ears are very sensitive and require special care and attention. If you take your earrings out for any length of time during the healing period, the holes may close or you may find it to be very difficult to re-insert earrings into a piercing hole that has not fully healed.
