Piercing Aftercare

What to normal?

Bleeding, bruising, discoloration, and scabbing are all common in any wound. These are not indications of any complication. For above the neck piercings, try sleeping with your head above your heart to avoid overnight swelling. Do not sleep on your piercing this can cause migration and irritation. Take an over the counter anti-inflammatory to also help with swelling and discomfort. Secretions of a whitish-yellow color may drain from your piercing and form a crust around it, this is not pus but plasma. Skin cells and lymph secretions are indications a healing piercing. Piercings tend to have a series of ups and downs during healing time, it may seem healed, but then it will begin regressing. Try to be patient and cleaning your piercing during your entire healing time.

 

Cleaning for Oral Piercings

Rinse mouth no more than 3 times a day with nonalcoholic mouth wash, & 3 to 4 times a day with a saline solution. Try to keep cold drinks or ice in your mouth and take an anti-inflammatory to reduce swelling. Avoid salty, spicy, hot or hard to eat food. Also, it’s important that you purchase a new toothbrush, & drink a lot of water! It is imperative that once your piercings swelling goes down that you come back in and downsize your jewelry with a smaller sterile piece.  

!!DO NOT OVER CLEAN!!

 

 

Cleaning for Facial/Body Piercings

Do not use any type of anti-bacterial products, alcohols, peroxide, Bactines, or ointments on your healing piercing. Premixed sterile saline solution should be the only thing you use to clean your piercing for the fully recommended time, this can be purchased through our shop or relatively any store. The only cleaning needed is to wash away any crust forming or if needed (very gently) use a saline soaked Q-tip to wipe away the crust, do this 2 to 3 times a day.

 

Tips!

-Always wash your hands before touching your piercing.

-NEVER touch with dirty hands! It’s the number one reason for infection.

-Only use sterile saline solution on your piercing.

-Leave your piercing alone except when you're cleaning it. It is not needed to be moved or rotated for any reason.

-Leave your starter jewelry in during the entire healing time.

-Leave jewelry in at all times. Even old or well healed piercings can close or shrink quickly. Even if your lobes stay open, others may not.

-Do not apply any lotions, makeup, or oils to your healing piercing

-Make sure your bed is clean and change your sheets regularly while you’re healing. Especially if you have pets.

-Wear clean comfortable clothing near the pierced area

-Try showering instead of taking a bath, tubs tend to harbor bacteria.

-Avoid swimming in any pools, lakes, oceans, or any stagnate body of water until you are fully healed.

(this includes rivers and salt water pools)

-If you ever have problems, see your piercer as soon as possible.

-Don’t over clean. Over cleaning diminishes good bacteria needed to help you heal.

-Avoid rough contact, oral contact and bodily fluids around your healing piercing. Your own sweat and body fluids are fine on your piercing provided you clean as directed.

-Don’t use band aids on your healing piercing. They limit air circulation and the adhesive can irritate the area.

-If you know you are going to be “getting dirty”, try covering your piercing with a water proof bandage just for the time needed. (no more no less)

-Listen to your body! If it hurts, don't do it!

Tattoo Aftercare

What is Normal? Redness, peeling, scabbing or bruising are all common in a healing tattoo. The tattoo may seem to bleed ink for a few days. This is normal and doesn't indicate any complication. It make flake, peel or scab ink. This is also normal.It can take up to a month or longer sometimes for a tattoo to fully heal. Always ask your artist if you have any questions or concerns.

 

DOs

  • With clean hands, remove the bandage after one hour and wash with warm water and antibacterial soap. Make sure you remove all traces of blood and pat dry with paper products. Wash your tattoo at least twice a day.

  • Cover the tattoo with a thin layer of unscented lotion or ointment that your artist recommends you use. Some examples are Aquaphor, plain Lubriderm, Aveeno baby or Eucerin. Ask your artist which is best!!

  • Keep your tattoo moisturized, 3 to 5 times a day. With clean hands!!

 

DONTS

  • Don't be gross. Be very careful of what your tattoo comes in contact with. It is an open wound and is susceptible to infection. 

  • Don’t submerge your healing tattoo in water. Showering is fine but no swimming or tubs. bodies of water and tubs hold chemicals and bacteria that are dangerous to your tattoo.

  • Don’t tan.  No tanning beds or laying out in the sun while your tattoo is healing. Even a healed tattoo needs sunblock to keep from fading in the sun.

  • Don’t pick or scratch and scabs or skin on your tattoo. This will pull the ink right out. Seems kind of counter productive. Slapping it isn't better. Just suck it up, its itchy..

  • Don’t wear constrictive clothing on your healing tattoo. 

 

As with any wound there is risk for infection. There is also risk for ink allergic reaction.
