Taking Care of Your New Piercing:

  1. Remove the sterile dressing when your Piercing has stopped bleeding, this usually takes around 1 hour.

  2. Put a little salt into a dish and pour in some boiling water, Allow to cool; you can then use this to clean the new Piercing.

  3. Take care not to wear jeans belts or any other clothing that either fastens onto or rubs against the new piercing.

  4. Your new piercing may be red & a little distressed for the first few days. Try not to put your hands onto or either side of the piercing and pull it up to look at the new piercing, as this can make it start bleeding again.

  5. Purchase some Savlon wound wash or some nipple spray the type used by breast feeding women. Use these to clean the new piercing regularly.

  6. Do not try to remove the new piercing yourself or have any third party remove it. As the removal of body piercing requires specialised knowledge, we can not accept any liability for any piercing that we have not removed ourselves.
