Aftercare

thumbnail

The internet is a wonderful place to get sucked into the void. With answers being at our fingertips in any given second. Piercing aftercare is a very broadly answered thing. You can search this topic and end up with multiple suggestions and it can be very confusing.

While every artist and studio will recommend something different, there are a few things you should avoid.

  • Rotating and/or twisting your jewelry.

This very old wives tale of your jewelry getting “stuck” if you’re not moving it is a myth. You just end up causing more trauma, which is not needed. Would you rip the scab off your skinned knee every morning? No. Thats pretty much what you’re doing every time you spin your jewelry. Just let it chill, and allow your body to do it’s thing.

  • Bactine/ Neosporin/ Alcohol.

None of these are actually helping your piercing heal. It’s a puncture wound, not a paper cut. Using Neosporin can potentially trap bacteria and not allow your wound to breathe. Which can just leave you in a sketchy situation you do not need to be in.

  • Sleeping and unwanted pressure.

Avoid sleeping directly on your piercing site. This can just prolong healing and make things more irritated and cranky.

Our shop is very focused on just allowing your body to do what it’s supposed to do. It’s made to heal things, so just leave it alone. Rinse thoroughly after a shower, don’t pick at the crusty friends that are on it, and just keep it clean.

If you are a client that prefers having something to clean with, Sterile Saline Wound Wash is a go to product. Use twice a day to help irrigate the wound site and just making sure all products are off. After, just lightly wipe or pat dry.

Overall, keep it clean, don’t mess with it, and enjoy you new adornment.
