Body Piercing

* You must think of your piercing not as a piercing but as a wound.
* Following proper piercing after care instructions will minimize
* factors that inhibit the healing process. This will reduce the risk of infections.


* Before cleaning or tightening the balls on the piercing jewelry, always wash your hands first with Frangrance Free Anti-Bacterial Soap.
* This will help eliminate any transfer of harmful bacteria to your piercing or the area.
* It is recommended not to use rubbing alcohol, peroxide, or any kinds of ointment such as Neosporin for your piercing. These products may cause problems and may
* provide the instructions on how to do the soak for your particular piercing, as it will vary!
* any transfer of harmful bacteria to your piercing or the area.

* When changing your jewelry you should wait the time suggested by your professional piercer or until healing time is complete.
* The only time that you are able to change your piercing prior to that is if extreme over swelling causes problems and complicates the healing process.
* If this happens it is best to go back to your piercer and he/she will be able to change it out for a longer piece of jewelry.


* No matter what, you must be careful during any activities you partake in when having a piercing old or new. When working out you must be aware that you are
* sweating and the dirt and oils from your skin will get into your piercing.


* This doesn't mean stop what you are doing it just means that you should clean the area after you are done with your activity to ensure your piercing safety.
* When it comes to sports you must realize that you are going to cause trauma to your piercing. The more traumas you put on your piercing the longer it will take
* to heal.
* If there are any problems or questions regarding your piercing, please don't hesitate to call or come in to
