Abstract
(EN)
Systems, methods and apparatus for increasing piercing safety are provided. The present invention includes an ear piercing system that includes a piercing post (102) having a magnet (106) and an alignment target (114), and ornamental earring elements (104) that may also include a magnet (108) (of opposing polarity) and alignment target. The natural attraction of the magnets (or ferromagnetic material), in conjunction with the alignment targets, permits individuals to easily remove and replace ornamental earring elements without risk of inadvertent or intentional premature removal of the piercing post subsequent to ear piercing procedures.

L'invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés et un appareil destinés à augmenter la sécurité de perçage. La présente invention comprend un système de perçage d'oreille comprenant une tige de perçage présentant un aimant ainsi qu'une cible d'alignement, et des éléments de boucle d'oreille de parement pouvant également comprendre un aimant (de polarité opposée) et une cible d'alignement. L'attraction naturelle des aimants (ou matériau ferromagnétique), conjointement avec les cibles d'alignement, permet à des personnes de retirer et de remplacer facilement les éléments de boucle d'oreille de parement sans risque de retrait prématuré accidentel ou intentionnel de la tige de perçage après les opérations de perçage des oreilles.
