Piercing Aftercare Recommendations

FOR ALL BODY PIERCINGS 

WASH your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason.

SOAP no more than once or twice a day. While showering lather up a pearl size drop of unscented antibacterial soap to clean the jewelry and the piercing. Leave soap on the piercing no longer than 30 seconds. 

RINSE thoroughly to remove all traces of soap from the piercing. It is not necessary to rotate jewelry through the piercing. 

Please consult a physician if an infection occurs.

FOR ALL ORAL PIERCINGS

RINSE mouth with an alcohol free mouthwash for 30 seconds after every meal and before bed (4-5 times daily) during the entire healing period. Cleaning to often or with a rinse that is to strong can cause discoloration and irritation of your mouth and/or piercing. 

REPLACE the original longer jewelry with a shorter post once swelling has subsided. This is VITAL to prevent intraoral damage.

Please consult a physician if an infection occurs.
