Over the past 40 years, more than 200 million people around the world have been pierced with the Inverness Ear Piercing System.

Inverness was established in 1974 with the invention of a safe, quick and sterile system for piercing ears in a retail environment. Until then, most ears were pierced at home with an ice cube and needle or in the doctor’s office with a loud piercing gun.

Today, Inverness is a global company. We are headquartered in Attleboro, Massachusetts and have employees and offices all over the world. Inverness is now the trusted ear piercing system in jewelry stores, department stores, salons, pharmacies, doctors’ offices, and body piercing shops in over 40 countries worldwide.
