Piercing Aftercare

Piercing Aftercare Tips 

  • Clean your piercing 2-3 times a day with a saline or sea salt solution and once a day when you shower with an antibacterial fragrance-free soap.
  • Do not touch your piercing with unwashed hands or let anyone else touch your piercing.
  • Do not prematurely remove your piercing because it could take several months for your body to heal.
  • Do not let the piercing come into contact with another person’s body fluid.
  • Do not use alcohol or hydrogen peroxide for these products may damage healthy cells and cause scar tissue. Petroleum jelly can collect and promote the growth of bacteria and is not recommended for aftercare of any kind.
  • Avoid public pools, lakes, ocean water and bathing in a tub during the healing process.
  • Avoid wearing tight fitting clothes which might irritate or rub against your piercing.
