Ear piercing is a common practice and is often done using a piercing gun. Additionally, the use of sterile, disposable needles is done to ensure minimal discomfort and quick healing. Ear piercing using the sterile gun technique is a method of piercing the earlobe or cartilage using a specialized piercing gun. The gun is typically loaded with a pre sterilized, disposable stud earring and uses a spring loaded mechanism to quickly pierce the ear. The technique is popular for its speed and ease. Before the piercing, the area around the earlobe or cartilage is cleaned and marked to ensure accurate placement of the earring. The piercer then places the gun against the ear and activates the trigger to quickly and cleanly pierce the ear.
