After the pier




General healing time





Do's & Don'ts


-To reduce the risk of your piercing becoming infected, good hygiene is important. Always wash your hands and dry them thoroughly with a clean towel or kitchen roll before touching the area around the piercing. -Avoid fiddling with the area and don't turn the piercing. If a crust develops over the piercing, don't remove it – it's the body's way of protecting the piercing. -The piercing may bleed when you first have it done, and it may bleed for short periods over the next few days. It may also be tender, itchy and bruised for a few weeks.




How to make a sea salt soak


The appropriate ratio for the mixture is ¼ a teaspoon of non-iodized salt in 8oz or 1 cup of water. For this method, you would do one to two soaks a day for five to ten minutes. During the soak the piercing needs to be completely submerged in the sea salt mixture.
