Other than someplace like Claire's boutique at the mall, does anyone have suggestions for an adult to get their ears pierced? I had it done years ago at the doctor, and years ago at the mall. I'm hoping the third time's the charm.

IMHO, a dermatologist is the best one to do it, considering you already have some damage/issues with previous piercings.

Thanks for that tip, SouthernBelleInUtah. I hadn't thought about the scar tissue. I do have a dermatologist I like. Perhaps I should call. Thanks!

I would research and visit to find a good tattoo shop/piercing parlor. Don't go somewhere where they use the guns like they do at Claire's, they are often dirty and often the holes aren't straight.

Even if you aren't the "tattoo parlor type" they will be the most experienced. If you have had problems with the holes closing, they will be able to use an appropriately sized needle and the best after-care instructions.

Good idea! I hadn't thought of a piercing/tattoo place. That's not usually my scene, so thanks for bringing that idea up. Maybe finding one of those will be my next thread!

I"ll do it for free. I've pierced my own ear, nose and belly button at one point or another with no problems.
