TAKE CARE OF YOUR PIERCING

AFTERCARE

Cleaning

Always wash your hands before touching your piercing.

Clean 2-3 times a day around the entry and exit points of the hole.

Remove any body fluids from the jewellery or the area.

For tongue and other oral piercings, gargle 2-3 times a day with salt water and antibacterial alcohol free mouthwash. Gargle after smoking and avoid dairy products.Prontolind is available from us.

 

Infection

A piercing is a fresh wound. If kept clean and dry at all times, it will heal quickly and completely. If however it gets dirty or is not cleaned regularly it may become infected.

 

Migration/rejection

Although uncommon, some piercings can migrate (move through the skin) to some degree. In extreme cases this can lead to jewellery ‘growing out’ of the body

altogether.

Some piercings, (eyebrow, naval, tragus etc) are more prone to migration that others. It is not dangerous or painful, but it may leave a small scar.

 

Swelling

Most piercing will swell to some extent, and we always allow space on your jewellery to compensate for this. Occasionally however, a piercing can swell more than usual and be painful. If your piercing swells more than 2-3 mm , or if there seems to be a possibility that your jewellery seems to short to accommodate the swelling, please return so that we can fit longer jewellery and avoid any complications.

For tongue piercings, a long bar is always used for initial piercing, you can return approximately after 4 weeks, after the swelling has gone down, to have a shorter bar fitted. You may find it helpful to suck on ice to reduce the swelling, making sure you avoid dairy products.

 

Balls

Every 2-3 days you should check the tightness of the treaded balls on your jewellery. They can become loose from cleaning, rubbing against clothes, skin etc…

 

General Advice

Trauma is caused by obvious pulling or catching and less obvious chaffing of clothes by movement. The best advice is to wear loose fitting clothes in the early stages. Try to avoid waist bands or heavy belts in the case of naval piercings, and hair gel or spray in the case of facial and ear piercings.
