Hinds Jewellers at Meadowhall or Crystal Peaks pierce ears, its a bit more dignified than sitting in the window of Claire's for all to see. The price includes a choice of studs and a bottle of after care lotion. Sorry, I can't remember how much it was but I'm sure if you give them a ring they'll tell you.

Don't go anywhere that offers to pierce your ear with a gun; get it done with a needle instead.

 

I'd recommend Thou Art on Chapel Walk, or Blue Banana at Orchard Square. Both about £10 and with a needle.

 

(Or go to the hairdressers or jewellers and risk smashed cartilage and/or an infection for a few quid less)

Ditto above. I had mine done with a gun and they're forever closing up and I have to wiggle an earring about until the hole opens up again.

 

With a gun, the earring itself is used at the implement piercing the ear. Think about the back of a stud earring: it's blunt, and so when forced through your earlobe quickly will cause the skin to tear. Now think about a needle: it's sharp and will actually pierce the earlobe cleanly, leaving a hole that will heal much faster and more uniformly, leaving you with less issues later on. Go to a proper piercer :)
