BODY PIERCING & FINE JEWELRY

AVOID


  • sleeping on your piercing
    • pressure from sleeping on your new or healing piercing will result in a cranky, swollen piercing.
    • tilting / shifting of the piercing and jewelry is likely to occur.
  • makeup and beauty care products
    • even the most gentle of beauty products will be too harsh on a healing piercing. You can still use these products, just keep them off the piercing!
  • skin cleansers (directly on the piercing)
  • rubbing alcohol, peroxide, ointments, and other first aid products
    • due to the nature of first aid products - they will all be too harsh, and / or suffocating to the healing tissue of a piercing.
    • If you are troubleshooting a fussy piercing, you will still want to avoid these products - they will not be helpful. 
  • tea tree oil
    • we cannot stress this enough, DO NOT use tea tree oil on your piercings for any reason!
    • tea tree oil is too harsh of a product to be used in the aid of healing or troubleshooting a piercing. Drying out the piercing and causing slight chemical burns is NOT what we want! we want happy an SAFE healing piercings!




BODY PIERCING SUGGESTED AFTERCARE

DO NOT TOUCH OR PLAY WITH YOUR PIERCING!

  • Always wash your hands before cleaning your piercing
  • Gently rinse your piercing once a day with warm water to get rid of any dried blood, crusties, dirt, and debris from the day. A warm / hot shower works best.
  • Use a suggested STERILE SALINE SPRAY to flush your piercing. Spray both the front and the back of each piercing - pat dry with a clean and disposable paper towel or gauze pad, making sure to remove buildup on the piercings.


ORAL PIERCING SUGGESTED AFTERCARE

  • Rinse thoroughly with fresh bottled water after eating or drinking anything BUT water.
  • You may also use an alcohol free oral rinse up to 4 times a day.
  • Good Oral Hygiene is important for a happy, healing piercing.
  • DO NOT PLAY WITH YOUR JEWELRY!



JEWELRY DOWNSIZING

Downsizing jewelry is important when healing a piercing. Once the main swelling has gone down, your jewelry might be too long and need changed to a more comfortable fitting piece. Waiting too long to downsize your jewelry may result in further irritation, swelling, and longer healing times.
