We undertake all piercings using implant-grade titanium to ensure swift healing in style and comfort. All jewellery and clamps are autoclave sterilised before use. We use one-use disposable needles for our piercings and follow strict hygiene procedures in accordance with environmental health policies.

In regards to body jewellery of metal composition, we only sell and use titanium due to it’s excellent biocompatibility, durability and highly appealing aesthetic. It is the highest-quality grade metal for use as body-piercing jewellery; at extremely competitive prices, both your body and your wallet will thank you! We can also advise you on how to care for your piercings to see you through the healing process.

 AFTERCARE

FOR GENERAL PIERCINGS

• Wash your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason.

• Dissolve 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodised (iodine-free) sea salt into one cup (approx 250 ml) of boiled water.

• When the water has cooled enough to be warm but not scalding, saturate a cotton pad (never cotton balls as stray fibres may get caught in the jewellery), clean gauze or a paper towel in the solution and apply with light pressure to the piercing site for 10-15 mins. Using a saturated cotton bud tip, you may also gently remove any discharge or debris from the jewellery and surrounding skin.

• Depending on the piercing site, it my be possible to invert a cup of warm solution over the area to form a vacuum. Using a shot glass or egg cup can make this easier. Hold in place for 10-15 mins.

• Apply the sea salt solution twice daily, using whichever of these methods you find most effective.

• With clean hands, be sure to regularly check threaded ends (righty-tighty, lefty-loosey) on your jewellery for tightness, as balls can work themselves loose due to the natural movement of the area.

• Avoid all beauty and personal care products on or around the piercing including cosmetics, lotions, sprays, etc. Do not clean the site using surgical spirit, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, TCP or any harsh soaps, as these can damage cells. Also avoid ointments or creams as they prevent necessary air circulation.

FOR ORAL PIERCINGS

• For the exterior of labret (lip or cheek) piercings, follow the steps for general piercings above.

For exclusively oral piercings and/or the interior of labret piercings, follow the steps below.

• Rinse your mouth with antimicrobial or antibacterial alcohol-free mouthwash for 30 seconds after meals and at bedtime (4-5 times daily) during the entire healing period.

• Maintain good oral hygiene and minimise plaque buildup by gently brushing your teeth, tongue and jewellery with a new soft-bristled toothbrush twice a day. Avoid smoking, alcohol and aspirin.

• With clean hands, be sure to regularly check threaded ends (righty-tighty, lefty-loosey) on your jewellery for tightness, as balls can work themselves loose due to the natural movement of the area.

• Avoid undue trauma; excessive talking or playing with the jewellery during healing can cause the formation of unsightly and uncomfortable scar tissue, migration, and other complications.

Above all things, maintain your health and hygiene and the cleanliness of your piercing and environment.

Especially anything that may come into direct contact with the site. Keep the site clean and dry at all times.

Your piercer will have provided an average healing period for your particular piercing type;

however each body is unique and healing times vary considerably between individuals.
