DIY Ear Piercing Kit

Filed under: Domestic, Kansai, Trips — Tags: , , , , , — myyearinjapan @ 6:16 am

I remember getting my ears pierced. Everyone had told me stories of the big metal gun like thing that felt cold against your cheek as your ear got ripped apart. But when I went into Claires that sunny summer afternoon, they had used a relatively small, white plastic gun to mutilate my ear. And it hadn’t been that painful. (The pain came later.)

It seems that know piercing one’s ears has gotten even simpler and the device you need to make a hole in your ear, even smaller. In Osaka, I found these DIY ear piercing kits. They’re slightly smaller than an ear and come with birthstone earrings pre-inserted. All you need to do is clean your ear and prick a hole. Cost:¥1,470 or about $15 per piercing. So about $30 to get one in each ear.

  1. I rather use the gun. In where I currently reside, they do it manually with a needle. The kit does not look intimidating. I need one!

    • This kit doesn’t look intimidating. I meant the guns they used to use look intimidating. They use to use big metal things that looked more like a gun.
