Earlobe Piercing

UHS offers earlobe piercing for patients four months of age and older.

A trained member of our clinical staff will gently pierce your earlobes in a safe, clean healthcare setting. UHS uses a fully encapsulated piercing system to ensure sterility; all starter jewelry features thinner posts and a special earring back to prevent over-tightening and promote healing.

You'll receive a free bottle of ear care antiseptic, complete instructions on caring for your new piercings and even a cuddly teddy bear to soothe away any worries!

Choosing jewelry

A wide range of starter jewelry is available, so you can choose the look and material that's right for you.

  • Go simple...
    with ball-style earrings in stainless steel, titanium and 14-karat yellow or white gold. Both three- and four-millimeter earrings are available, for the look that's right for you.
  • Dress it up...
    and choose from simulated pearls or cubic zirconia, set in your choice of stainless steel or 14-karat yellow or white gold. Diamond-like crystal or sparkling pink stones are available in a classic Tiffany-stye setting; a sleek blue bezel-set stone lends a modern edge. For a sweet touch, choose a pink CZ set in 14-karat yellow gold.
  • Or be whimsical...
    and choose a 14-karat yellow gold puffed heart. A stainless-steel rainbow flower features a diamond-like crystal CZ surrounded by pink, blue, purple, green and aqua stones; the flower style is also available in crystal CZ set in 14-karat white gold.

Fees and scheduling


Fees are all-inclusive and range from $40 – $50 depending on the jewelry chosen. Additional bottles of ear care antiseptic are also available for $3 per bottle.

UHS accepts UCard, cash, check and credit or debit cards. Piercing services are not covered by health insurance.
