Transcript:First Time Ear Piercing With Kids
Hi, I am Ernesto at Ernesto’s Jewelry of New York for About.com and today I’m going to share with you the process of piercing a child’s ears for the first time.
Before the Ear Piercing
Usually a child comes with her mother asking to have her ear pierced. They sign a piece of paper with their name, the recommendations and the instructions they have to follow.
I show them a box, which is this kit, that provides you with about 20 different colors, after we decided, we bring the solution, we show you the earrings, this is what you have chosen, this is what you want.
I have already marked with a pen, a special pen, the dots, where exactly I am going to do it, left and right.
The Ear Piercing Process
Take a deep breath and hold it. Take a deep breath and hold it.
After, I use the machine. Boom. One time, in and out. I apply the solution and they ask sometime because it’s so refreshing and cold, “please apply a little bit more”.
The second one I do the same process, before you know it, it’s all over.
Aftercare for Pierced Ears
Remember; use the solution two times a day especially after you shower. No Q-tips or no cotton balls, I don’t recommend that. You’re going to be using paper towels or regular tissues. Do it for the next four, five or six weeks. Do not be in a hurry to remove it, if you have to leave them in another extra week or two weeks, just leave them. You waited 7 year already, 8 years, so you can wait another two or three weeks.
After three or four days I want you to go to your ear and rotate it back and forth and a little bit, make sure it’s free and moving back and forth and after 6 or 7 weeks it will be beautiful.
