                    PIERCING AFTERCARE
DO NOT TOUCH YOUR HEALING PIERCING UNLESS CLEANING
IT, AND BE SURE TO WASH HANDS THOROUGHLY FIRST. THIS
INCLUDES OTHER PEOPLES HANDS, MOUTHS, AND BODILY FLUIDS. THE MORE YOU PLAY WITH A
FRESH PIERCING, THE LONGER IT WILL TAKE TO HEAL. YOU ALSO RAISE THE CHANCES OF
INFECTION. REMOVING JEWELRY DURING THE HEALING PROCESS SHOULD BE AVOIDED. AVOID
TANNING OILS, LOTIONS, SAND, AND TIGHT FITTING CLOTHES WHICH MIGHT IRRITATE A NEW BODY
PIERCING. DO NOT SOAK A HEALING PIERCING IN DIRTY WATER LIKE A POOL, SPA, OR EVEN THE
BEACH. DO NOT EVER USE ALCOHOL, PEROXIDE, NEOSPORIN, OR ANYTHING NOT LISTED IN YOUR
AFTERCARE, UNLESS DIRECTED BY A DOCTOR.

1. EYEBROW, NOSTRIL, SEPTUM, EARS, & CARTILAGE: WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY BEFORE
HANDLING JEWELRY. DO NOT EVER TOUCH JEWELRY UNLESS YOU ARE CLEANING IT. YOU NEED TO
CLEAN THE PIERCING 2 – 3 TIMES A DAY. THE BEST CLEANSER TO USE IS AN ANTI-BACTERIAL SOAP,
SUCH AS DIAL, LEVER 2000, HIBICLENS, ETC. AFTER WASHING YOUR HANDS, YOU WANT TO CLEAN
YOUR PIERCING. RINSE AWAY ANY ENCRUSTATION AND SECRETIONS, BEGIN BY WASHING AND
RINSING, AND THEN ROTATING THE JEWELRY. REPEAT THIS STEP A TOTAL OF 3 TIMES, THEN ONE
FINAL RINSE. IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO LEAVE ANY SOAP ON THE JEWELRY OR PIERCING AREA. WE
HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING H2 OCEAN STERILE AFTERCARE SPRAY, JUST SPRAY A SMALL AMOUNT
ON AREA AND LEAVE IT BE EVERY 3-4 HOURS. IF USING H2 OCEAN, YOU ONLY NEED TO DO THE
ABOVE CLEANING ONCE A DAY, WHEN SHOWERING IS BEST. THE AVERAGE HEALING TIME FOR
THESE PIERCINGS IS ABOUT 6 – 8 WEEKS. ANY CARTILAGE PIERCINGS CAN TAKE UP TO 3 OR 4
MONTHS.

2. NIPPLES & NAVELS:    THE CLEANING PROCEDURE IS THE SAME AS ABOVE. THE HEALING
TIMES CAN RANGE ANYWHERE FROM 4 -6 PLUS MONTHS. THESE PIERCINGS ARE FAIRLY DEEP SO
DON’T STOP WITH YOUR AFTERCARE TOO SOON, THEY ARE STILL HEALING INSIDE, BEST TO
CONTINUE FOR A SHORT PERIOD AFTER YOU THINK IT IS COMPLETELY HEALED.

3. GENITALS: SAME AS ABOVE EXCEPT YOU SHOULD CLEAN JEWELRY AFTER URINATING TO
PREVENT ANY BUILD-UP OF DRIED URINE ON THE JEWELRY. IF YOU HAVE TO HAVE SEX DURING THE
FIRST FEW MONTHS AFTER THE PIERCING, USE CONDOMS TO PROTECT THE PIERCING. HEALING
TIMES VARY.

4. TONGUES: YOU WILL NEED TO RINSE WITH A 50/50 MIXTURE OF LISTERINE & WATER. RINSE FIRST
THING IN THE MORNING, LAST THING BEFORE BED, AND ANY TIME ANY THING GOES IN YOUR MOUTH
BESIDES WATER (SUCH AS FOOD, SODA, CIGARETTES, ETC.). YOU WILL RINSE AT LEAST 12 – 24
TIMES A DAY. DO NOT USE FULL STRENGTH LISTERINE (IT CAN CAUSE CHEMICAL BURNS AND/OR
DAMAGE TASTE BUDS). DO NOT DRINK BEER DURING THE HEALING PROCESS; THIS CAN CAUSE A
YEAST INFECTION. ICE DOES HELP THE SWELLING, AS WELL AS AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY (SUCH AS
IBUPROPHEN, NAPROXEN, ADVIL, MOTRIN, ETC.). THE SWELLING USUALLY LASTS ANYWHERE FROM
1 TO 4 DAYS. DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY WET KISSING OR ORAL SEX FOR 3 WEEKS. COLDS AND
VIRUSES CAN BE PASSED THROUGH SEMEN AND VAGINAL FLUIDS. THIS WILL CAUSE EXTREME
SWELLING AND POSSIBLE INFECTION. HEALING TIME IS 2 – 4 WEEKS.

5. LIPS, LABRETS, AND CHEEKS: FOLLOW PARAGRAPH 1 AND 4 AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS.
HEALING TIME IS ABOUT 6 – 8 WEEKS.

QUESTION IS A STUPID QUESTION.
