Cheek Piercing Jewellery

Piercing Procedure
Ready to get a 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 Note: Our stores do not offer cheek piercing due to the risks associated with it.

Make sure to check the piercing age restriction before coming to store. It can help to avoid any undue disappointment. In a Blue Banana studio, the piercing age restriction is ? (ID may be required) or ? 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 you can meet the piercer! They too will give you a quick consultation and briefing before discussing the piercing location. 

Cheek piercings can be done in two ways. If you are having your cheek piercing with a barbell or labret, your piercer will pass a needle through your cheek from the outside to the inside. They will then insert the barbell. If you are having a microdermal cheek piercing the piercer will make a small hole in the skin using a dermal punch or needle and insert a dermal anchor using forceps.
Aftercare Advice
A cheek piercing can take 6-12 months to fully heal. The healing time varies from person to person and will need top aftercare to ensure successful healing. 

During the healing process, it is important to avoid knocking the piercing or putting pressure on the area as this will slow down healing and can even cause unnecessary problems. For the first few days of having your piercing you will need to talk as little as possible and only eat cold, soft foods. This will prevent the piercing from moving too much or becoming aggravated. After eating, use a saltwater solution of 1 part salt to 4 parts boiled water (slightly cooled) and swill it around your mouth. 

When cleaning the outside of your cheek piercing, use salt water solution or Tea Tree Oil and bathe it using cotton wool. If you would like further information, make sure to read our full Piercing Aftercare Guides to learn about side effects to look out for.
Choosing Piercing Jewellery
There’s plenty of options when it comes to cheek piercing jewellery from Blue Banana. Some popular styles include: 
  • Cheek Piercing Jewellery 
  • Dimple Piercing Jewellery 
There are a range of colours and designs to choose from in our cheek piercing jewellery range. When choosing your piercing jewellery there are a few things you should consider: 
  • Jewellery Size – Make sure to find out from your piercer the size your cheek piercing jewellery should be. 
  • Jewellery Material – piercing materials differ not only through their look but also how they could react to your skin. If you have sensitive skin that is prone to irritation, one of the many Titanium jewellery options is recommended. This material comes in a variety of colours and is durable too! 
When searching for a piece of jewellery make sure you know your measurements. We display the piercing jewellery measurements as Gauge first (displayed in millimetres) then Length, e.g. 1.2mm x 8mm. 
  • Gauge – this is the thickness of the jewellery itself. 
  • Length – the length of the piercing bar, usually not including the ball. 
Make sure to check out the tips from our piercing guides for information about changing and removing piercing jewellery.
