Safe ear piercing shop
A new ear piercing location has opened in downtown Birmingham staffed by licensed nurses. Rowan has opened at 122 W. Maple Road in the former Stem & Stone location. The national store said they offer a fun, celebratory and safe ear piercing experience using only hypoallergenic jewelry. They utilize nurses because “Our nurses are experts in skin integrity, infection prevention, and easing patients nerves. They’re trained to pierce all ages – from one year olds to over a hundred year olds. Rowan nurses have extensive experience in creating a stress-free environment, are experts in the use of PPE and maintaining sterility, and always put their clients first. Rowan nurses use a gentle, hand-pressured device with pre-sterilized 14k gold or stainless steel earrings to pierce. Our piercing jewelry has safety backs and long posts to ensure sufficient air flow and optimal healing. We never use piercing guns, which are spring loaded and can damage the ear tissue.” Rowan only pierces ears, they note, and take all safety precautions.
