General aftercare instructions
Wash your hands before applying aftercare. 
Keep any dressing on for 2-3 hours. 
Keep the area around the piercing as dry as possible, gently dab dry after a  shower or bath. 
Apply saltwater twice daily. Use water from the kettle that has been allowed to cool, add a teaspoon of salt per mug of water.
Let the air circulate around the piercing whenever possible. 
Wear clean, loose clothes around the piercing. 
If you think there is something wrong with your piercing, do not remove the jewellery but contact us straight away.
x Do not touch or turn the jewellery in the piercing.
x Do not change the jewellery for 10 – 12 weeks, except oral piercings which can usually be changed to a shorter bar after 2 weeks, and nostril piercings which can usually be changed after 6 weeks.
x Do not use strong antiseptics and creams.
x Do not attempt to increase the size of the piercing until it has fully healed. 
 

Please note: Itchiness, redness and a crusty secretion around the piercing is normal during the healing process and does not usually mean your piercing is infected. If you are concerned about it, please return to us so we can check everything is normal.
