HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR NEW PIERCING

  • ALWAYS WASH HANDS BEFORE TOUCHING YOUR PIERCING.
  • NEVER use cotton wool, or cotton buds on your new piercing.
  • ALWAYS use a tissue to dry your piercing.
  • NEW piercings should be cleaned TWICE a day.
  • NEVER put a plaster over your piercing.
  • ALWAYS wear jewellery in your piercing as holes can grow over very quickly.
  • TRY NOT to sleep on your piercing or have clothes rubbing on it.
  • REMEMBER a clean, dry, pressure free piercing heals quickest.
  • CHECK that all beads and balls are tightened securely twice a week to ensure they have not worked loose.
  • DO NOT CHANGE JEWELLERY UNTIL THE PIERCING HAS HEALED COMPLETELY!.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS

"EARS"

Keep the piercing studs in for at least six weeks. DO NOT take them out at all. After this, always wear earrings. It is better to wear earrings at all times after the initial healing period as the piercing can close down if left open.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Apply one drop of ear care solution, or sea salt water, to the ears twice a day.
  • After wetting the ears - turn the studs a little, from the front only.
  • DRY the area thoroughly with a piece of tissue.
  • TRY to avoid pressure on your ears, as this can affect the healing process.

"NOSE"

Do not remove the stud for 8 weeks, the special nose stud is designed to be worn with the stem pointing up the nose. This is not normally uncomfortable. If it does irritate, move the stud slightly until a comfortable position is found. If the stud causes persistent irritation, then contact your piercer for advice and adjustment.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU 'PLAY' WITH THE STUD OR ATTEMPT TO CHANGE THE STUD BEFORE IT IS HEALED THEN YOU MAY CAUSE A RED LUMP TO APPEAR!!

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Do not remove the stud for 8 weeks.
  • Do not keep touching the stud unnecessarily.
  • Gently clean the piercing using a wet tissue, then dry with a tissue.
  • Apply one drop of aftercare solution, or sea salt water, inside and out.
  • Dry thoroughly with a tissue.

"NAVEL, NIPPLE, EYEBROW, AND GENERAL PIERCINGS"

Keep the piercing jewellery in for at least eight weeks. ALWAYS allow air to circulate around the piercing.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • ONCE a day, apply one drop of your chosen healing solution, or sea salt water, to each end of the piercing.
  • MOVE the jewellery gently to loosen, and then dry the area with a clean tissue.

"TONGUE, TONGUE FRENUM"

The tongue usually heals in two to three weeks. During that time it can swell considerably, The barbell that has been inserted is 50% longer than the thickness of the tongue to allow for this. When the tongue returns to normal a shorter bar should be fitted so as not to knock the teeth.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • DURING the first few weeks; suck ice cubes and eat ice cream to reduce swelling.
  • KEEP talking to a minimum.
  • TRY to avoid smoking.
  • EAT softer foods as sharp foods such as crisps can irritate.
  • AT LEAST three times a day, especially after eating, wash the mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash or sea salt dissolved in warm water. For tongue frenum piercing a gentle mouthwash should be used three times a day after meals.

"LIP, LABRET, MADONNA"

INSTRUCTIONS

  • APPLY ONE drop of aftercare solution, once a day, to the outside of the piercing.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • APPLY one drop of aftercare solution to each end of the piercing.
