  • Wash your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason.


  • Use sterile saline solution such as H2Ocean. soak it onto gauze and hold it onto the piercing for five minutes two to three times a day. A brief rinse afterwards will remove any residue.


  • Healthy diet


  • Do Not move or rotate the jewelry or change the jewelry while healing. No soap, no alcohol, no peroxide,no bactine no homemade sea salt solution  or anything else other than sterile saline.


  • Healing times vary on the piercing. Just because it doesn’t hurt anymore doesn’t mean it is healed.


  • If the piercing is irritated and red it does not mean it is infected.


Oral Piercings

  • Rinse mouth with Non-alcoholic mouthwash such as Biotene for 30 seconds after meals and at morning/bedtime


  • Cleaning too often or with too strong of a rinse can cause discoloration and irritation of your mouth and piercing
