Piercing Aftercare

What aftercare is needed after getting a piercing?

  • Have a bottle of Bactine or an antiseptic cleanser handy. It is available online or in most drug stores.
  • Apply the cleanser on the outside of the piercing three times a day for 2-3 weeks after getting your piercing.
  • Avoid playing with your piercing until after it has healed.
  • Be mindful of your piercing when showering, changing your clothes, or engaging in physical activities.
  • Avoid chlorinated water like swimming pools or hot tubs.
  • If swelling does not go down after a week or so, contact Ink Inc.
  • The piercing will be fully healed after 4-6 weeks, after which you can change the jewelry.
