Aftercare

PIERCING & DERMAL AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

1. NO OINTMENTS OF ANY KIND. THIS MEANS NO A&D OINTMENT OR OTHER TOPICAL OINTMENTS. YOUR PIERCING MUST HEAL FROM THE INSIDE OUT. THESE ITEMS PREVENT YOUR BODIES NATURAL HEALING PROCESS.

2. REGULAR BATHING HABITS SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO KEEP YOU’RE PIERCING CLEAN BEYOND THE NORMAL CLEANING OF YOUR PIERCING 3 TIMES PER DAY. YOU MUST HAVE GOOD HYGIENE AND STAY HYDRATED FOR YOUR PIERCING TO HEAL PROPERLY.

3. NO DIRTY HANDS ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS PRIOR TO CLEANING OR HANDLING YOUR PIERCING.

4. DO NOT PICK THE CRUSTIES!!! YOU MUST USE SANITARY CLEANING TO REMOVE THESE. SANITARY CLEANING IS STERILE SALINE SOLUTION AND Q-TIPS. IF THEY DON’T COME OFF RIGHT AWAY USING THIS METHOD YOU MUST BE PATIENT. REPEAT CLEANING UNTIL CRUSTIES ARE REMOVED.

5. ANTI BACTERIAL SOAP IS GREAT FOR PIERCINGS!! CHEAP BUT EFFECTIVE IS DIAL LIQUID SOAP.

6. IN CASE OF A MOUTH PIERCING BE SURE TO TEND TO BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE PIERCING AS EACH ARE JUST AS IMPORTANT TO YOUR PIERCINGS HEALTH.

7. SURFACE PIERCINGS AND OTHER TOPICAL PIERCINGS ALL CAN BECOME RED OR IRRITATED FOR VARIOUS REASONS. EACH PERSONS SITUATION AND EACH PIERCING IS DIFFERENT. IF THIS OCCURS TAKE 2TBS SALT DISSOLVED IN WATER AS HOT AS YOU CAN STAND IT. WITH THIS SOLUTION CUP THE PIERCING WITH SHOT GLASS OR CUP AND SOAK FOR 5 MIN 3 TIMES PER DAY UNTIL IRRITATION GOES AWAY.

8. ALWAYS ASK KIMMY IF YOU’RE NOT SURE! I MAKE MYSELF AVAILABLE TO ALL CLIENTS MY NUMBER IS ON MY BUSINESS CARDS, USE IT.

9. BE CAREFUL WHEN BATHING AFTER GETTING PIERCED. TOWEL FIBERS, LOOFAH’S, ETC HAVE FIBERS THAT WILL RIP YOUR PIERCING OUT. THE SAME IS TRUE OF OUR HAIR AND CLOTHING. YOU WILL NEED TO LEARN HOW TO DO THINGS TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR NEW PIERCING.

10. DO NOT FOR ANY REASON CHANGE, SWITCH, OR REMOVE THE JEWELRY YOU WERE PIERCED WITH UNTIL YOUR PIERCER SAYS IT IS SAFE. YOUR PIERCING MAY CLOSE, ANY OTHER JEWELRY YOU PUT IN CAN CAUSE INFECTION AS MANY CONTAIN NICKEL PRODUCTS.

YOU’RE PIERCINGS HEALTH AND PROPER HEALING IS NOT YOUR PIERCERS RESPONSIBILITY IT’S YOURS! FOLLOWING AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN BY YOUR PIERCER ARE VITAL. WHEN INFECTION OCCURS AFTER STERILE PIERCING IT IS USUALLY DUE TO PICKING CRUSTIES, DIRTY HANDS, MAKEUP IN PIERCING, AND CATCHING PIERCINGS ON CLOTHING, FABRICS, AND HAIR!! YOUR PIERCER IS AMAZING AND HAS INFORMED YOU HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR PIERCINGS AND PROVIDED CONTACT NUMBER IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. DO IT, NO EXCUSES, DON’T BE “THAT” GUY!! THANKS FOR CHOOSING ME AS YOUR PIERCER AND ENJOY!!
