Body Jewelry Aftercare

The worst thing you can do is touch the piercing without washing your hands. To clean your piercing get Dial foaming soap (non scented) get it on the palm of your hand get it onto a qtip, gently rub it around the piercing. Then get a saline solution like H2ocean and spray it on your hand then get it onto a qtip and gently rub it around the piercing to get rid of the soap residue off the piercing. You can also soak the piercing in the saline solution with a shot glass as well. Do this twice a day once in the morning and once at night. You can clean it a third time in the middle of the day with just saline solution if you would like. You can substitute the saline solution with bactine but we prefer the saline solution. If you do use bactine do not soak the piercing with it! General healing time is about 10 weeks but some piercing can take much longer. Sometimes the piercing can swell this is why we pierce with longer jewelry in the beginning. After about 4 to 5 weeks if the piercing has been properly taken care of you should be able to switch it to a shorter piece of jewelry. Do not submerge the piercing in any water for at least 2 weeks. Running water like shower are fine try and keep shampoos and body washes away from the piercing. Always keep make up and other peoples body fluids away from a fresh piercing. The better you take care a your piercing the quicker it will heal.

For oral piercing you want to use a saline solution or a nonalcoholic mouth wash. Use it after eating, smoking and drinking alcohol. Stay away from hot and spicy foods for 3 to 4 days. Try not to play with the piercing while it’s healing. Stay away from other peoples body fluids.
