Your New Piercing is Awesome! Let’s keep it that way!
That’s it! Leave your piercing alone. Your body is magic and knows how to heal.
Your piercing is just as important to me as it is to you, and I want to make sure it’s perfect.
Here are some frequently asked troubleshooting questions:
This is a situation where I’d like you to come visit me in person, you might need a longer piece of jewelry in your piercing. I try my best to gauge how much swelling you will experience, but sometimes I’m wrong.
In most cases, discharges from a healing piercing is perfectly safe and normal. Irrigate the piercing with saline at least one a day to remove the discharge. If there are any other symptoms or you’re just concerned, message me!
Sometimes, a piercing will bleed a little bit for a couple days after the fact, usually during cleaning. Some piercings (like genital piercings), tend to bleed for a little longer than others. If there are large amounts of bleeding, stop by!
Bumps are a sign of irritation, and might have several different causes. Is the piercing being slept on? Is there debris in or around the piercing? Is the jewelry scratched or not snapped down all the way? I can help you determine the cause of your bump if you’re not sure so we can make it go away!
Healing a piercing is not always a linear process. These timelines are only averages, but know that even though your piercing may “look” and “feel” healed, it probably isn’t if it hasn’t been several months. Please adhere to your piercer’s recommendations for jewelry changes and removal.
