Piercing Aftercare

Piercing

Aftercare

The Do’s

  • Clean your hands!
  • Prepare a mixture of SEA SALT and warm water (1/2 tsp salt to 1 cup water)
  • Soak a cotton bud and clean any crusties/discharge from the piercing
  • For oral piercings use the same mixture to gargle
  • Do this 2 times per day for one week
  • Afterwards, clean as necessary

The Don’ts

  • Do not over clean – your body has both good and bad bacteria, over-cleaning removes the good bacteria that you need and can be as bad as not cleaning your piercing!
  • Do not twist your piercing or play excessively with your piercing while it’s healing
  • Do not change the jewelry before the recommended time, unless otherwise instructed by your piercer
