Body Piercing
 24hours after piercing has been done. 

                  DO NOT change your over-sized piercing jewellery  for at least 2-3 months.
                                        All piercings take about 6 months to 1 year to heal

  • Do not rotate the jewellery ever!!
  • Do not clean with Bactine, Polysporin, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide (these can damage cells).
  • Do not over-clean you`re piercing. This can delay your healing and irritate your piercing.
  • Avoid submerging the piercing in unhygienic bodies of water (lakes, pools, hot tubs)
  • PLEASE follow the instructions I have given you, if you go to another piercer, friend or internet you will be given the wrong information.

          Taking Care of your Piercing for the First 2 Weeks

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before cleaning or touching your piercing
  • Use a small amount of Piercing Aftercare on your new piercing twice a day
  • Certain piercings may be easier to apply aftercare using a q-tip or paper towel
  • Remove any extra of the aftercare spray from the piercing
  • Q-tip warm water to take off any crusties that are around the piercing
  • Wash yourself like you would do every day keeping your piercing clean
  • If having any swelling, ice-cubes will help bring it down
  • With clean hands, be sure to regularly check threaded ends on your jewellery for tightness.

        Things you might notice during healing

  • Bleeding, Swelling, Tenderness, or Bruising (this is very common to happen)
  • Discoloration, Itching, Secretion of a whitish-yellow fluid (it is not infected) that will form some crust on the jewellery.
  • Skin may tighten around the jewellery as it heals, DO NOT TURN JEWELLERY, let it move freely
  • Smelly bodily secretion may accumulate. Warm water and q-tip will remove this

***** In the event an infection is suspected the jewellery should be left in place to allow for draining of the infection. If the jewellery is removed, the surface cells can close, which can seal the infection inside the piercing channel and result in an abscess. 

*****Do not remove jewellery unless instructed to by a medical professional..

 Caring for Your Tattoo

Help for your Tattoo

It is ok if the tattoo to leak ink in the first 24hours(this might happen on your sheets or clothing)
The tattoo may start to peel and scab (this is normal - like a sunburn) DO NOT pick or peel the skin away. Fresh skin will soon replace the dead skin.
Colors may fade during the healing process, but will return when completely healing.  It will take up to 6 months or longer for it fully heal under the skin.
Always use sunscreen after it is healed to avoid fading from the sun.
Do not re-bandage your tattoo.
