Aftercare


Healing your piercing

Bio-septic: Apply to newly pierced area 3-4 times a day and let the solution dry. DO NOT wipe away.

Healing time:
These times are approximate as everyone is different.

After you feel it's healed we recommend giving an extra
week or two before switching jewelry to avoid flare-ups

Lobes - 6 weeks
Cartilage - 3-6 months
Nose - 3-6 months
Inner Ear - 3-6 months
Septum - 3 months
Eyebrow - 6-12 weeks
Oral - 4 weeks
Nipple - 2-3 months
Exotic - 6 weeks

(If jewelry falls out)  Go to your piercer ASAP before piercing closes.
(To prevent) Tighten everytime after you shower.

Oral piercing
For the next 7 days gargle mouthwash.
Drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
when sore you can crush some ice in a bag and put some crushed ice on your tongue or drink cold slushy (our preferred method)
If extremely sore and swollen taking Ibuprofen or Advil may help as they are anti-inflammatory.
Do your best to limit dairy intake to limit any form of build up in or around piercing.

Things to look out for
