Congratulations on your new piercing!

Now comes the most important part to ensure the best healing possible. Clean your piercing for the full healing time. Always wash your hands with soap & water before cleaning your piercing. Minor discharge, crust & redness are normal during the healing process. 

Follow these 4 steps for a happy healing piercing!


Excessive swelling, green/yellow discharge, a rash or excessive redness, or if jewelry is becoming imbedded due to swelling

  • 1. Anti-Bacterial

    Anti-Bacterial will help keep your piercing clean throughout the day.

    Apply solution twice a day (morning & night) with a cotton swab. Gently clean around the pierced area & allow to dry.

  • 2. Mouthwash

    Our Alcohol Free Mouthwash will keep your piercing clean.

    Use 3 times daily. Fill the cap with Alcohol Free Mouthwash and rinse for 2-3 minutes.

  • 3. Emu Oil

    Emu Oil is an amazing natural

    anti-inflammatory. It will help with any redness, swelling & scar tissue.

    Apply once in the morning. Use a cotton swab and apply a small amount of Emu Oil to the pierced area. Leave on & allow to absorb into the skin.

  • 4. Sea Salt Rinse

    Sea Salt Rinses will help to keep your piercing clean throughout the day.


    Mix a 1/2 teaspoon of non iodized Sea Salt into a 16oz bottle of water. Carry this mixture around with you throughout the day and rinse whenever you eat, drink, kiss or smoke.

DO NOT use ALCOHOL or HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. These are too harsh to use on a new piercing. These can cause irritation and prolong the healing process. (Do not use NEOSPORIN unless directed by your Piercer or Physician.)

DO NOT Twist, Touch or play with your Jewelry. The only time you want to come into contact with the jewelry is when you re cleaning your piercing.

DO NOT Remove your Jewelry. Wait until the piercing is fully healed before you REMOVE or CHANGE your jewelry. Once piercing is healed you may change the jewelry, but keep in mind that if the jewelry is out for too long the piercing can begin to close.

DO NOT OVER CLEAN. Cleaning is good, but over-cleaning can irritate the piercing.

DO NOT Sleep on the Piercing. Sleeping on the piercing will cause irritation, and can cause your piercings to heal at an unnatural angle.
