The Curated Ear
Combining pieces of jewlery to create the perfect expression on body.
Ear and body curating is a very popular and trending way to express yourself.
Picking out multiple pieces of jelwery that work together. Curated ear piercings are usualy done over a longer period of time, even if you plan them to work together. Generally it's recomended to only get 3-4 piercings at a time.
Matching Piercings To Your Ear
All ears are unique. They differ in size and shape. What works for your friend is not necessarily the best look for you, and vice versa. By planning out piercings with the curated ear, you get to lay them out in a way that best compliments the unique shape of your ear.
Curated Ears Are Truly Unique Designs
Those looking for unique piercings need look no further than the curated ear. With each piercing and jewellery piece individually chosen, odds are you will create a combination that no one else in the world has. Yes, you can look to others for inspiration, but it’s a great time to create a design unique to you.
Match Your Personal Style
The customizability of the curated ear means the end result is a series of piercings that matches your personal style. You can enhance and embolden an existing look, or develop a new style altogether. A curated ear project can be as bold or discreet as you choose.
Come one and all, we've got a piece of jewlery for anybody.

Frequently Asked Questions
You've got questions? We've got answers.
Is it going to hurt?
The MOST common phrase we hear post-piercing is, “Wow, it’s already done? I thought it was going to be way worse!” We all have a different reaction and response to pain that is primarily determined by our attitude. The process is over incredibly quickly, and by the time you see how cool your new piercing looks, you’ll forget all about any pain you might have epxerienced!
How old do I have to be to get pierced?
Persons 18 and over can make independent piercing decisions, as long as you provide a valid government-issued photo ID. If you are under 18, you will need a verifiable parent or legal guardian present to provide and sign documentation. All parties will need to provide proper state or federal photographic identification with date of birth. Simple jewelry changes can be provided without parental consent. See our homepage for more information.
How long will my piercing take to heal?
Almost every piercing has a different healing time. The majority of piercings take, at minimum, 6 months to a year to heal. This range represents an average first stage of healing, and full, complete healing can take over a year. Even if your piercing isn’t swollen or sore it isn’t necessarily healed. Your piercer will cover your piercing’s average heal time with you during your procedure so you know what to expect.
Can I start with a ring?
This is slightly a trick question. Sometimes yes, but mostly no, and you’d have a much easier healing process if you didn’t. There are a certain few piercings we start with rings: daiths and septum (sometimes), and there are a great many more that we don’t ever start with rings: tragus’, forward helixes, nostrils, navels, and more.
Can I sleep on my piercing?
We would rather you didn’t! This is especially true for ear cartilage piercings. Sleeping on piercings can be painful and cause healing complications. Even without pain it is likely that sleeping on a piercing will result in unsightly scarring. Often the weight of the body on the jewelry will cause it to move the piercing into a crooked an unflattering position. This shifting out of alignment is especially problematic in cases of multiple or paired piercings, leaving them unflattering and imbalanced.
Can I go swimming?
You should stay out of open bodies of water (ie. pools, oceans, hot tubs, jacuzzis, baths, etc.) for a MINIMUM of 4 weeks. Chemicals in treated water can irritate piercings, and the many varied bacterial strains in untreated water sources make infections imminent and difficult to treat.
I think I have an infection, what should I do?
Often times what people think of as an infection is simply irritation. However, left unchecked, an irritation can lead to in infection. If your piercing is not 100% come into the studio and let us look at it. If there is intense redness, heat, dark or odorous discharge or pain, seek a professional medical doctor without delay.
