H2Ocean® sterile sea salt spray

CLEANING BODY PIERCINGS

•WASH your hands with anti-microbial or germicidal soap prior to touching the piercing for any reason.

•SPRAY with H2Ocean® and soak for 3-5 minutes.

•SOAP no more than once or twice a day. While showering, lather up a pearl size drop of the soap to clean the jewelry and the piercing.

•RINSE thoroughly to remove all traces of soap.

•DRY by gently patting with disposable paper products. Cloth towels can harbor bacteria and snag on jewelry, causing injury.

 

WHAT IS NORMAL?

•Initially: some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness and bruising.  

•During healing: some discoloration, itching, secretion of a whitish-yellow fluid (this is not pus) that will form layers of a crust like scabbing on the jewelry.  Just make sure you gently wash this area!

•After healed: Keep jewelry in at all times.  If you need to hide it, Famous Tattoos & Body Piercing offers clear unnoticeable retainers.

 

HINTS AND TIPS

•Stay healthy, eat healthy, and you will heal faster.

•Make sure your bedding is always clean.

•Wear clean and breathable clothing.

•Take showers, bath tubs tend to harbor  bacteria.

AREA TIPS

•NAVEL- A hard, vented eye patch can be taped over the navel to protect from excessive irritation and impact.

•EAR AND FACIAL- Cover your pillow in a clean t-shirt and turn it nightly. Disinfect surfaces of phones, headphones and anything that might contact the piercing. Use caution when styling your hair.

•NIPPLES- The support of a tight cotton shirt or sports bra may provide protection and comfort.

•GENITAL- Use caution engaging in sexual activity. Comfort & Hygiene are vital.  Use clean, disposable barriers on sex toys and always clean your piercing and do an additional H2Ocean® soak afterwards.

 

WHAT TO AVOID

•Cleaning with anything other then the recomended products outlined in this guideline. 

•All ointments. They block and prevent air circulation!  Do not apply any!

•Over-cleaning. This irritates the fresh piercing and can prolong the healing.

•Others’ bodily fluids around the piercing.  Seriously, think bacteria overload!

•Swimming in unhygenic bodies of water.  Or, you can protect your piercing with a waterproof bandage.

•Beauty products on and around the piercing.  This can irritate the piercing.

•Hanging charms from the piercing, until of course it is fully healed.

Oral Piercings

CLEANING & AFTERCARE SOLUTIONS

For the inside the mouth:

• Antimicrobial/antibacterial alcohol-free or diluted 50/50 mouth rinse

• H2Ocean® sterile sea salt spray

For the outside of the mouth:

• Liquid anti-microbial or germicidal soap like Satin®, Provon® or Dial®

• H2Ocean® sterile sea salt spray

 

All oral piercings require you to rinse your mouth each and everytime you eat or drink anything other then water.  Keep a container of alcohol free or a diluted 50/50 mouthwash with you at all times during the first 3-6 weeks.

 

CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

•WASH your hands with anti-microbial or germicidal soap prior to touching your piercing for any reason.

•SPRAY and soak with H2Ocean® 3-5 times daily.

•SOAP no more than 1-2 times daily.  Lather 

up a pearl size drop of soap and apply to the piercing. 

•RINSE thoroughly to remove all traces of the soap.

•DRY by gently patting with disposable paper products. Cloth towels harbor bacteria and snag on jewelry, causing injury.

TO HELP REDUCE SWELLING

•Allow small pieces of ice to dissolve in the mouth.

•Don’t speak or move the jewelry more than necessary.

•Sleep with your head elevated above your heart during the first few nights.

WHAT IS NORMAL?

•Initially: swelling, mild bleeding, bruising & tenderness.  

•During healing: tenderness, light secretion of a whitish yellow fluid (note that this is not pus).  

•After it’s healed: keep jewelry in at all times. If you need to hide it for any reason, Famous Tattoos offers clear retainers.

HINTS AND TIPS

GOOD ORAL HYGIENE: Brush your teeth and rinse with mouthwash after every meal. Use a new soft-bristled toothbrush, keep it clean and store it in a clean area.  Stay healthy, eat healthy and you’ll heal faster.

 

JEWELRY

Once the swelling has subsided, it is vital to replace the original, longer jewelry with a shorter post to avoid intra-oral damage. Because this necessary jewelry change often occurs during healing, it should be done at Famous Tattoos & Body Piercing by a certified piercer.

 

EATING

Eat carefully, small bites at a time. For tongue piercing, try to keep your tongue level in your mouth, your tongue tends to turn to help chew. For labret/cheek/lip piercings: be cautious about opening your mouth too wide, the jewelry can catch on your teeth.

 

WHAT TO AVOID

•Eating hot, spicy & acidic foods & beverages.

•Excessive talking/playing with it during healing.

•Chewing on tobacco, gum, fingernails & other 

 foreign objects that could harbor bacteria.

•Sharing plates, cups, & eating utensils with others.

•Smoking! It increases risks & prolongs healing time.

•Submerging healing piercings in unhygenic bodies of water such as lakes, rivers & etc.
