Looking to get a lobe ear piercing? Use our store locator to
find your local Blue Banana Studio. There’s no need to book an appointment; you
can simply go to the store of your choice and be pierced on the day.
Please ensure that you have checked the ear piercing age
restriction before coming to store. In a Blue Banana studio, the lobe piercing
age restriction is 14 (ID may be required) or 8 with parental consent from a
parent or guardian who is present.
Once you’re all booked in, you will have some forms to fill
out. A member of Blue Banana staff will go through the steps and can help you
pick out jewellery. Then the piercer will give you a quick consultation and
briefing before discussing the lobe piercing location.
The piercing site is cleaned thoroughly and marked with a pen first so you can check that you are happy with the location.
The lobe piercing has one of the quickest healing times of
any piercing due to passing through flesh rather than cartilage. It takes just
6 – 8 weeks to heal so with great aftercare you should have no problems.
During the healing process, there are some activities you
will want to avoid such as sleeping on your new piercing and swimming. Take
care not to catch your new piercing jewellery and keep up with your aftercare.
Clean your lobe piercing twice a day with salt water
solution or Tea Tree Oil by gently bathing it using cotton wool.
While it is important to ensure your general ear hygiene is
first rate, it is also advisable to avoid using soap on your new piercing so be
sure to take extra care while washing your ears and removing ear wax.

There’s plenty of options when it comes to lobe piercing
jewellery from Blue Banana. Some popular styles include:
We tend to recommend choosing a stud for the first few
months of having your lobe piercing as this will reduce the chance of it
getting caught. Once your piercing is fully healed there are other styles of jewellery
such as a ring. It is vital for the healing process that you remain patient and
don’t change your jewellery until your piercer has advised you to do so.
When choosing your piercing jewellery there are a few things
you should consider:
When searching for a piece of jewellery make sure you know
your measurements. For lobe jewellery, the measurements describe the gauge of
the item in millimetres. Jewellery with gemstones will sometimes include the
size of the stone too. Some people find it best to choose a plain stud during the
healing process as this makes cleaning much easier and quicker.
