Is it okay to bring your own earrings to a piercing parlor?

I have permission to get my ears pierced on the helix, or somewhere around there. I want it to get professionally done, and I already have and earring chosen. Do piercing parlors allow you to bring your own earring to be pierced with?

    i would call and ask. i know the one i go to does. they actually give you a discount since then they don’t include the price of jewellery just the actual action of piercing.

    so it really depends on the place.because some are cheap and want you to buy their jewellery as well.

    Its not a matter of a shop being cheap, its a matter of cross contamination. A PROFESSIONAL shop would not allow jewelry from anywhere outside of the shop because they do not know where the jewelry came from, if it was already in someone elses body, or if it is of quality metal. There are only 5 materials that you can get pierced with initially and often times jewelry stores sell cheaply made products. Now that doesn’t mean you can’t wear your chosen earring after the piercing is fully healed, you just have to start with something a bit basic but of the correct quality. I would bring the earring with you to show the piercer that that is the piece you want to switch it to later, that way he knows on what angle to pierce you helix at. I’ve been piercing professionally for 6 years and have managed two shops so far in my lifetime and its always been a matter of health issues, never about making an extra $10 Bucks. Hope this helps!
