Coin Slot FAQs
- How long until I can wear rings?
This will depend on each person individually, but normally some time between 4 weeks and 12 weeks is safe.
- Can I have this in a lobe?
Yes you can, however heavy jewellery is not usable as it will stretch the slot in to a different shape, so we only recommend small, light weight rings in smaller slot sizes.
- What jewellery can I have?
Anything you want that is a ring of implantable grade. We will help style your ear with you.
- How long does healing take?
The first stage of healing is 2 weeks. Then, the next phase is 12 weeks and the last stage will be at 12 months. This is near the same for all cartilage piercings.
- Is it painful?
No more than a normal cartilage piercing procedure.
- Can I take pain killers?
If you feel that you really need to, then yes, but all anti-inflammatories must be avoided. Most clients do not need pain relief, but paracetomol is fine to take if necessary.
- Can I have the consultation and procedure on the same day?
No. This does not allow proper assessment and planning for your procedure.
- Can I bring a friend?
Unfortunately it is not hygienic or safe to have friends or family in the procedure room while having the procedure.
- How long are the sutures in for?
Sutures remain in place for 7-8 days. They are then removed in the Studio.
- Can I wash my hair?
Yes, wait a minimum period of 24 hours after the procedure.
- Can I colour my hair?
Ideally not for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.
- Can I drive after the procedure?
Yes, you will be fine to drive.
- I'm from interstate, do I still need a consultation?
Yes. You will need to have a consultation via phone and then an in store consultation the day before the procedure.
