Do not be wary of the piercing process. Stellar applies an in-house anesthesia to numb your ears beforehand to reduce the impact of the piercing instrument on your ears. It is recommended for you to rest and prepare mentally the night before. If you have consumed alcohol within few hours, do avoid getting your ears pierced.
