EARS | NOSE | CARTILAGE
Studex® System75 is a modern and virtually silent spring action ear piercing system that uses sterile single-use non-touch disposable cartridges.
This system offers the optimum in hygiene and sterility. With this system, ears can be pierced gently with individually sealed, hypoallergenic studs. The ear piercing specialist inserts sterile cartridges into the instrument and touches neither the piercing stud nor the clasp during the piercing process. The piercing instrument does not touch the ear either. The one piece cartridge gives smooth operation and ensures proper alignment of the stud with clasp.
The studs that are available for use with System75 are slimmer and sharper than those used with Studex® Universal, making the piercing less traumatic to the ear. This makes System75 a great choice for cartilage & nose piercings.
Automatic positioning of the clasp ensures that proper space is left at the front and back of the ear to enhance the healing process.
Pricing includes the pericing process, earrings & Studex cleaning soltion.

Taking good care of new piercings is extremely important.
Always wash hands thoroughly with antibacterial wash before touching a new piercing.Cleanse the front and back (where possible) of the piercing twice a day with Studex® Piercing Antiseptic Lotion, starting 24 hours after receiving the piercing, without removing the jewellery.
Gently slide the stud/jewellery back and forth in the piercing. Avoid rotating an ear stud more than 180° left or right. This will prevent hair wrapping around the post at the back of the lobe.
Keep hair spray, soap, shampoo and other preparations away from the piercing. After shampooing, the piercing should be rinsed with clean water. Then apply Studex® Piercing Antiseptic Lotion as described above.
After cleansing the pierced area with Studex® Piercing Antiseptic Lotion the area should be kept dry.
Do not remove the jewellery from the piercing during the after care procedure and avoid handling your jewellery unnecessarily.
You should also avoid pushing the clasp of an earring along the post towards the ear as tight earrings may lead to infection.
Minor pain and redness may occur immediately after piercing. This is normal and will settle within 48 hours provided proper after care is followed. If undue pain, swelling, and/or redness occurs, consult your piercer or doctor immediately. If you believe the piercing is infected, do not remove the jewellery until you have consulted your piercer or doctor.
This is a very common question. With Studex® System75, ear piercing takes merely a matter of a few seconds. The system uses a very sharp fine gauge stud for minimal local trauma to the skin and most people say they feel only the slightest pinch. Because it is very gentle and virtually silent.
Yes. All Studex® ear piercing studs are packaged and sterilised to meet or exceed European EC standards and FDA regulations (U.S. Food & Drug Administration). When used with the Studex® System75 non-touch ear piercing system they offer the optimum in hygiene and sterility.
We require consent from a parent or legal guardian for anyone under 16 years of age before a piercing can be carried out. A piercing release form will be filled out before the piercing is performed, and ID with proof of age will be required. If consent from a parent or legal guardian is required on behalf of a minor, the parent or legal guardian will be required to sign this form.
* Please note we don't pierce children under 5 years old.
Yes. Studex® ear piercing systems are designed for ear piercing for customers at any age.
For minors, the parents or legal guardians sign a release form. The procedure is normally carried out by two ear piercing specialists so that two instruments can be used and both ears can be pierced simultaneously. If you are wanting this option you must call to book to ensure two staff are available, please note this is an extra $25.
For piercing children's ears, we recommend Studex® System75. It is very gentle and virtually silent. After piercing, all aftercare should be carried out or supervised by an adult.
Yes. Studex® ear piercing systems are designed to safely pierce the earlobe and cartilage along the rim of the upper ear. It is not suitable for inner ear piercings such as the tragus.
Because cartilage is a tougher tissue than the ear lobe, cartilage ear piercing is a more invasive procedure than lobe piercing. However, Studex® System75 studs are designed to create minimal trauma.
After piercing, piercing studs should be worn for at least 6 weeks continuously. For the cartilage area of the ear & nose, they should be left in for at least 12 weeks continuously. After 6 weeks (for earlobes) or 12 weeks (for cartilage & nose), the piercing studs can be removed and other post-type earrings can be worn continuously. We recommend using only post-type earrings for the first 6 months from the date of piercing and for the first six months do not go for more than 24 hours without wearing jewelry in the piercing. The post should be surgical stainless steel or other hypoallergenic material.
We recommend no swimming until the ears are properly healed. This is a minimum of 6 weeks (for earlobes) or 12 weeks (for cartilage & nose).
We reccommend you opt for the Titainium earrings option when booking.
Titanium is a natural material which is very corrosion resistant, hard and comparatively light. Medical titanium is used for high-quality surgical implants. It is perfectly suited for earrings and piercings studs as it is non-toxic and does not chemically react with the body, thus accelerating the healing process. Titanium grade 23 (also known as 6AL4V-ELI) is used for Studex® piercing studs. This alloy grade is hypoallergenic and therefore well suited for prolonged periods inside the body.
Some piercings can heal over quickly when jewellery is removed, sometimes in as little as a few hours. If a piercing has closed, it is important to never attempt to force jewellery back through the original piercing. We advise allowing the piercing to heal completely before re-piercing. A few months is usually recommended to allow the tissue to fully repair itself. When fully healed, your piercer will be able to determine whether you are able to have a new piercing performed in the same spot. They will check your ear for cysts, which feel like a small hard lump that can be moved under the skin. Cysts are embedded skin tissue that can sometimes form surrounding foreign debris and they cannot be pierced as doing so may cause a rupture, releasing the debris into the surrounding tissue which can cause infection. However, if you see and feel a small lump that does not move, it is more likely scar tissue. In most instances where the piercing has healed without additional injury, infection, or other trauma, it will be possible to pierce through the scar tissue and reopen the original piercing.
