Safe Ear Piercing

STUDEX® is the right place if you value 100 % quality and safety when it comes to ear piercings and earrings. As the world’s leading manufacturer of ear piercing systems and hypoallergenic earrings, we offer you genuine STUDEX brand products and services. We’re proud to be the de facto industry standard for ear piercing.

Our industry-leading STUDEX ear piercing systems are safe and hygienic. The piercing earrings, which actually serve to pierce the ear, come in sterile, individually sealed packaging. These precision instruments can be operated quickly with great ease. In one motion, the ear is pierced, the stud is set, while the earring back is also fixed in place. Meeting or exceeding EU standards and FDA regulations (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) is for us a matter of course.

The ear piercing system STUDEX® System75™…

…is barely noticeable, virtually silent and thus also ideal for children. It offers the optimum in hygiene: The studs and earring backs are contained within a single-use cartridge, which is inserted directly into the instrument. The cartridge never touches your skin or that of the ear piercing specialist, whether during insertion or removal of the cartridge. The industry-leading technology ensures an especially gentle setting of the ear piercing. For this reason it is also ideal for use on the flat cartilage area of the upper ear.

Other STUDEX ear piercings systems are our classic instruments STUDEX® PLUS and STUDEX® Universal. These instruments have proven themselves in over 40 years of service, and many million ear piercings have been performed with these worldwide.
