definitely check out the local salons but i would have said somewhere in the region of £5-10. Why not send a PM to KellyC coz i know she is getting into this and is very clued up on that sort of thing. Hope this helps.

aaahhh thanks Carole although i wouldnt say im clued up on anything lol!!! I am attending an ear piercing course on 21st July at my local Sally's store and it cost me about £5.35 for the course which is a half day course. Locally in my area ear piercing is anything between £3.50 - £8.00 it depends on what studs their using but i am thinking about charging £4.00 - £5.00. I have however been in contact with my local council because you do need to be registered to carry out peircings and it will be costing me a one off £87 registration fee. As i am working from home they will come round and make sure the area i work in is clean and free of contamination etc but they have said they are quite leniant but they are sending me an info pack out so i can prepare in advance! anyway hope this helps a bit x

HI

YOu need to cost it up like you would any other treatment, your time, the earings, wear and tear on your gun, utilities , sterilizing pads ect. I would think that £5 would only just cover your costs so i would try and go a little higher or its not really worth your time. I charge £10 but a lot of other salons charge 15-20 .

I charge £14 which includes a bottle of ear care solution. I know this bears no comparison to the price at Claire's accessories for example, but the difference is you are offering them a salon service. Your time is valuable and this of course is costed into my treatment; I block out 15 minutes for this.

A mum stopped me in the playground this week to ask if I could recommend anywhere local to pierce her ears and was gob smacked when I said I could do them! She popped round later that day and since then I have tinted her lashes and brows, given her a manicure, a Creative spa pedicure and a gel nail overlay! From chance remarks big things do grow!

Good luck!
