Techniques used to pierce ears include needles, safety pins, sharpened studs, self-piercing kits, and spring-loaded guns. The spring-loaded gun requires minimal personnel training and because it is easy to use, it has a widespread popularity. We report twenty-six cases of embedded earrings following ear piercing with the spring-loaded gun.
