Remember aftercare is a very important part of the piercing process. We`ve done our bit by having a clean and sterile studio, autoclaving our instruments and jewellery and adhering to strict hygiene regulations, now please do yours!

Advice will be given before and after the process. Aftercare sheets will be provided along with specific instructions for your piercing. Please follow the advice on them, you will find it most beneficial. We stock aftercare products to make your cleaning routine easier.

Below are some tips and mythbusters;

  • DO NOT touch your piercing with unwashed hands.
  • Refrain from swimming, using sun beds or bath products for at least the first week.
  • DO NOT use antiseptics such as TCP, Surgical Spirits, Savlon or Germoline.
  • It is perfectly normal for your piercing to secrete fluid and to be a little red and sore in the first stages of healing. 
  • DO NOT rotate or force the jewellery to move.
  • DO NOT change initial jewellery until your piercing is fully healed. Doing so will increase your risk of infection, rejection and result in an unnecessarily long healing time.
  • If you believe your piercing has become infected, please contact us. Do not remove the jewellery yourself. This may result in any bacteria becoming trapped under the skin.
  • Please remember we are all individuals, the healing process may vary from person to person.
  • If you have any concerns at all regarding your piercing please contact us. It's very important that you give us the opportunity to help you with any problems.
