KIDS' EAR PIERCING DAY
Sunday, April 11, 2021 Red Loon is hosting another Kids' Earlobe Piercing Day for clients aged 4 years old to 10 years old. Due to physical distancing stipulations for Covid-19 protocols in our studio, we have been unable to accommodate children's earlobe piercings as parents wouldn't be able to accompany their child in the piercing room. With overwhelming demand, we have booked out the entirety of the studio on April 11th to welcome kids and their families to the studio to offer a safe and comfortable piercing experience.
Appointment spots are limited - please call 780.469.0101 to book. We will be taking a $75 deposit to hold appointment spots. This will come off the final cost at your appointment. Deposits can be made to email@example.com Please include your child's first and last name in the memo. Cost is $200 *including* your choice of available implant grade jewelry and appropriate aftercare solution. Please read over the information below: -Children must be accompanied by a PARENT or LEGAL GUARDIAN to sign for them. Absolutely no exceptions. (Sorry aunties and uncles and Grandparents) -The child and two adults may accompany them to the appointment (Children over 10 are welcome). Please leave siblings at home unless they also have an appointment at the same time, although it's best to bring them in individually, in our experience. -Parents must have government issued photo ID. Guardians must have photo ID and guardianship documents. -Children must have some form of ID - Birth Certificate, Health Care Card, Status Card, Passport, Permanent Resident, etc -We only pierce with our own implant grade, pre-sterilized jewelry to ensure the highest possible quality. We will have a selection of flatback studs or rings to choose from. Either option is safe and comfortable! Talk to your piercer about which selection would be best for your lifestyle. -Michelle and Lexci will be the piercers on staff this day. We will try our best to accommodate piercer preference, but cannot guarantee. We will be offering tandem piercing (both lobes at the same time!) if that's your preference. -We highly recommend using topical numbing cream EMLA, which you can pick up at your local pharmacy. Glob that stuff on the front and back of the lobes at least 45 minutes before your appointment to take the pinch away from the piercing and give nervous kids peace of mind. Be sure to use the bandage to create an air-tight environment for the cream to work. While the EMLA does help, it's not required and many kids have no need to use it. (Please follow manufacturer instructions and warnings) -Please pin up hair into a ponytail and/or use barrettes and headbands to keep the area tidy -Please ensure a fresh, clean mask is ready to switch into so the piercings are only in contact with clean garments. -Please have a bite to eat before the appointment. -Please encourage your child to know that the piercing is their choice alone. They can advocate for themselves to change their mind or ask for space at any time. The piercings do hurt, but just a little bit. We describe it as a similar feeling to plucking one single hair out. Just a pinch, but not so bad! We want to make sure everyone has a safe and exciting experience! Our experienced piercers will help guide them through their piercing experience and check in through the whole process. In no circumstances will we tolerate physical restraint, threats or anger projected to our piercing clients during their piercing procedure. -Come ON TIME to your appointment. Not early. (or late) Some notes about aftercare that may be an issue for some folks: -The piercings take a minimum of 12 weeks to heal and jewelry must stay in at all times. -New piercings cannot be submerged in standing bodies of water for at least 12 weeks. (No tubs, pools, lakes, etc) -Many sports and dance organizations do not allow piercing in the ears. It is not safe to remove jewelry or tape it up in the first several months. The piercings will not be able to be safely removed and left out for a length of time, sometimes up wards of a year. We have the right to refuse service at any time. Your child's safety and comfort is our #1 concern. If anyone in your party is unable to adhere to Alberta Health's Covid-19 guidelines for distancing and mask-wearing, we must ask that you wait and book an appointment when the regulations are lifted. Masks are mandatory at our studio for the safety of our staff and clients. We are SO excited to offer this special day for your kids and we can't wait to have you in after long wait! See you soon!
