Is Walmart Ear Piercing Safe?


Walmart’s in-store ear piercing service is totally safe.


In fact, their in-store ear piercing services are performed by a company called Inverness, which claims to be one of the safest ear piercing services/kits available. What makes them some of the safest on the market is that:


  1. Their piercings are totally sealed until they are used, which means the piercings stay totally contaminant free.
  2. The piercings are designed to allow airflow through the ear and the back of the piercing, which speeds up the healing process, and prevents the piercing from becoming embedded in the ear lobe.
