Today is a special day at Body Candy, Caitlin has decided to get THREE brand new piercings - a triple earlobe piercing, all in one shot!
First, James begins by cleaning up the piercing location. In this case, he's cleaning Caitlin's earlobe and the surrounding area to make sure it’s completely sterile and ready to be pierced. Don't forget - having a clean piercing site is a very important part of any piercing experience, and should happen at every appointment!
Next, the holes for Caitlin's three piercings are mapped out. James explains that he’ll be drawing a dot to line up the piercings - for Caitlin, it's three dots on her earlobe. These dots help professional piercers (like James) make straight and accurate piercings, and gives the client a preliminary chance to see what their new piercings are going to look like. Caitlin takes a look in the mirror and gives the go-ahead.
Next, James uses a pair of clamps to hold Caitlin's ear. With a deep breath and a countdown of three, two, one... James pushes the first needle in through the back of Caitlin's ear. The needle is corked for safety to prevent any accidental pinpricks, and a simple stud earring goes into the fresh piercing. He repeats this process two more times with the same process - clamps, needle, cork, jewelry. Not even a flinch from Caitlin.
Last but not least, James cleans up all three piercing sites to make sure Caitlin leaves the shop in tip top shape. All three of Caitlin's brand new ear piercings are good to go!
