Aftercare Info

Follow the instructions detailed below to look after your body piercing.

The advice has been formulated over the years and should be strictly followed by any piercing enthusiast.

  • Bathe the piercing twice daily with either a salt water solution or with a mild antiseptic solution until the piercing has completely healed.

  • Do not cover the piercing.

  • Clothing should be worn as loosely as possible for the initial 4 weeks following the piercing.

  • Do not touch or turn the jewellery.

  • Do not go swimming or use a sauna for a minimum of two weeks following the piercing. Showering is preferable within this period.

  • Do not sleep on the piercing.

  • If any weeping occurs, clean the piercing twice daily with a weak solution of hydrogen peroxide and water for two days and then return to the normal cleaning solution for a week. Repeat this action the following week if deemed necessary.

Instructions for tongue and lip piercings:

  • Eat soft foods only during initial healing period.

  • Consume plenty of cold drinks within the initial healing period.

  • Rinse piercing with salt water after meals.

  • No smoking until the piercing has healed (this might even help you give up the bad habit!)

  • Ice will reduce swelling.

If you are unsure about your piercing for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact us.
