Claire's is a multi-million dollar
corporation and honestly if the use of piercing guns were an issue of public safety then they would have been banned by now. If safety is an issue for you then it is recommended you go to a professional piercer. This is not the forum to talk about Claire's and their piercing gun policy.
Anyways I was just looking up the phone number for Monroe Crossing Claire's and came upon the review below by Lee and thought it was inappropriate because I ACTUALLY shop there for my nieces and myself occasionally for earrings and the staff there are really nice so I did not see why it had one star but I suppose these reviews aren't screened for relevant information. FYI, Monroe Crossing is lacking in a shopping experience anyways but Claire's is the place to go for jewelry and accessories if you know of any teen or preteen girls. I shop their for my nieces ages 6, 11 and 13 and they all love Claire's.
Don't get your ears pierced here..
They use a piercing gun. Piercing guns can not be completely sanitized, and it likely to tear skin. It's also likely to get stuck.
In some countries, such as Australia, piercing guns are banned. Illegal. If you're looking to get your ears pierced, go to a REAL piercing parlor. It may be a little more intimidating to have the needle, clamp, ect and it may take a little longer, and it may be a little more expensive, but it's worth it. You're far less likely to get an infection from it this way. You get what you pay for.
You also do NOT want to be pierced anywhere other than your lobes by a piercing gun. It can shatter cartilage and frankly... it wouldn't work anywhere else other than ears.
