HINTS AND TIPS

JEWELRY

  • Unless there is a problem with the size, style, or material of your initial jewelry, leaves it in for the whole healing period. If you have an emergency and need to change your jewelry during healing, visit a qualified piercer for help.
  • Contact your piercer for a non-metallic retainer if your metal jewelry must be removed (for example, if your doctor or dentist makes you take it out for a procedure).
  • Leave jewelry in at all times. Your piercing can shrink or close super fast-even if youève hd it in for years. If you take it out, getting it back in later can be difficult or impossible.
  • With clean hands be sure to check threaded ends on your jewelry for tightness daily. (Righty-tighty, lefty-loosey).
  • Carry a clean spare ball in case you lose or break one.
  • If you decide you don’t want your piercing anymore, simply remove the jewelry (or have a professional piercer remove it). Keep cleaning the piercing daily until the hole closes. Most of the time, only a small mark will be visible.
  • If you think you have a infection, leave in quality jewelry so the infection can drain. If you take the jewelry out, the surface can close up. That can trap the infection inside the piercing and cause an abscess. Do not remove jewelry unless instructed to so by a medical professional.
