  • Do not sleep on the area.

  • Do not fiddle with your piercing.

  • Keep items that come into contact with your piercing clean – headphones, mobiles, glasses etc.

  • Check threaded ends of your jewellery are secure.

  • A piercing may seem healed before the healing process is complete. Although it may look healed from the outside the inside 
    channel is still healing, cleaning and care is needed constantly for the first 3 months. Be patient a piercing can take 12 months
    plus to fully heal.

  • Downsizing is important to support a healthy piercing, this means switching the post or ring to a shorter one to give a snugger
    fit after any swelling has 
    subsided, usually around 6-8 weeks. Your piercer will give you advice on this as it depends on the
    piercing, it is important that you follow this and please check with us before changing your initial jewellery.
