Unique Piercing Placements

including Project Introductions.


 This is your aftercare instructions for your professionally performed aseptic piercing service with sterile,

documented, lot numbered jewelry.



 Follow these simple suggestions and the healing period should be a success.

 Although not a physician,

you may call or text questions regarding services and piercing aftercare at anytime.

 We want your piercing to be a success.

 For a Variety of Aftercare, Installation and Removal Tips go to our Website for Videos in the Video Library.

 A Normal Piercing may be tender, itchy, or even may appear bruised for a few weeks.

 It may be slightly red which can persist for several months. Some bleeding can occur in the first few days.

 A whitish-yellow or clear fluid can crust over the jewelry, which is not pus.

 Never pick crust off, play or pull at your piercings. It will interrupt the healing process.

 The skin may tighten around the jewelry as it heals may make movement or rotation difficult.

 The body may naturally decide to move the jewelry and the piercing may lay over to one side.

 When you are not cleaning your piercing, leave it alone.


DO NOT REMOVE the Jewelry when Cleaning a New Piercing.


CLEANSING the NEW PIERCING: Follow Cleansing Procedure suggested
by your DEH Registered Safe Body Art Practitioner.


 Always wash your hand thoroughly before cleaning or handling a new piercing.



 Using the “Basic Natural After Care Soap/ Peppermint, Tea Tree Oil or Mild Unscented Castile.”

 You may find that the cleaning procedure is the easiest to perform under running water,

such as in the shower, under a sink faucet, or with the use of a new spray bottle or bulb syringe.

 Application of the soap with a cotton swab Is Not Sufficient.

 With very warm water, Soak the inside and outside of the piercing to loosen any crusted matter.

 Flush the piercing with warm water. Directly APPLY the “Basic Aftercare Soap” to the piercing.

 Next rotate or slide the jewelry back and forth moving

the cleanser into the piercing with clean hands or cloth.

 Rinse thoroughly as you continue to move jewelry. Pat with a clean dry cloth.

 Do not clean external piercings with soap more than twice daily.


 Using 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Apply twice daily to inside and outside of the Nose Piercing.

 Each time be sure to use a new applicator stick.



 Sea Salt is a natural healing remedy. Sea Salt is different than regular table salt.

 Sea Salt is similar to our own body mineral structure and can actually sooth and promote

 the healing of a new or irritated piercing. Use 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt dissolved in 1 cup of warm water.

 Apply with a clean cotton cloth to keep heat in. Apply for 5 minutes or more, up to 3 times a day.

Simple Application: Mist Sterile Pre Made Sea Salt Solution directly onto Piercing.



 Your piercing will not be completely healed for several years.

 Even after the piercing is healed,

 it is very possible that if you remove the jewelry, especially over night or even for a short period of time,

 reinsertion can be very difficult and sometimes even impossible.

 IF YOUR JEWELRY COMES OUT, wash it and Inspect for damages,

 then Replace or Reinstall the jewelry as SOON as POSSIBLE.

 Replacement can be urgent, but is not usually considered an emergency.

 The jewelry should not be changed during the initial healing period,

 unless an issue regarding the health of the piercing is present.

 You must wear the original jewelry for 6-9 months before changing your jewelry style for fun or fashion.

 It is always important to wear the proper size of jewelry in your piercing.

 If you ever must temporarily remove your jewelry during or shortly after the healing period,

 You must put a retainer in the piercing to hold it open.

 Nylon line is an excellent choice as a retainer, especially when jewelry loss occurs.

 View the video demo on our website on the many different types of retainers or disguises.

 It is no problem to permanently remove the jewelry. In most cases only a small indentation will remain.

 Many piercings thought to have been long closed are quite often successfully re-opened.

Call for assistance.

 To Remove a Hook Style Nose Stud: Simply grasp the front of the jewelry

 then proceed to pull down or up, without tugging on the Nose, the jewelry will then become firmly pressed against the side of the nose, then proceed to use a half circular motion to conclude the removal.

 Immediately clean and replace if no issues are present and the intention is to continue wearing jewelry.

 To Remove an L Bend Style Nose Stud: Simply grasp the front of the jewelry

 then proceed to pull down or up, without tugging on the Nose,

the jewelry will then raise up and out to conclude the removal.

 Immediately clean and replace if no issues are present and the intention is to continue wearing jewelry.

 To Remove a Hoop Style Nose Jewelry: Simply grasp each side of the jewelry

 then proceed to pull away from each other making an open gap, without tugging on the Nose,

the jewelry will then become enlarged making enough room for the nose

to become free of the hoop to conclude the removal.

 Immediately clean and replace if no issues are present and the intention is to continue wearing jewelry.



Infections and irritations have very similar signs.


POINTS OF CAUTION: Nose Piercing Jewelry that is too tight,

may lead to the jewelry becoming embedded.

 Each time you clean your piercing, check for any signs of swelling, redness,

irritations and the jewelry embedding.

 An embedded Piercing looks like the Jewelry is disappearing under the skin.

 If the Nostril has become tight between the front and back of the Nose Piercing Jewelry,

 embedding is likely to occur and the Jewelry should be enlarged

or removed immediately upon any signs of intense swelling.

 Nose Piercings can carry the risk of infections, permanent scarring, and the potential of Nose deformity.


INFECTIONS are caused by contact with harmful bacteria, fungi, and other living pathogens.

 Piercing infections are actually quite rare but can usually be traced to some of the following activities

 which you may have come in contact with, such as, but not limited to:

 Touching with unwashed hands, oral or bodily fluids, cosmetics, hair products,

animals, pets, soil, gardening, infrequently washed clothing or bedding, pools,

hot tubs and other type of bodies of water, or unattended traumas.

 While these symptoms may indicate also other problems,

look for these first indications of an infection: Redness and swelling.

 A sensation of heat at the piercing site.

Pain, especially throbbing, spreading pain or discomfort

 when touched, unusual discharge of yellow, green or grey colors.

 An Abscess, especially accompanied by a fever must be treated immediately by a physician.

 While you are never discouraged from seeing a piercing friendly physician,

 If you would like assistance with your piercing,

please call and describe circumstances which may have led to an infection.

 Remove jewelry immediately if at any time the pierced skin swells

and becomes restricted by the length of the piercing jewelry.

 Jewelry removal could pose a possibility of closing off a drainage point

for unattended infectious fluids to exit.

 Oral antibiotics are only effective with the proper administration

and should only be prescribed by a physician.


IRRITATIONS come in many different forms. Here are some more common causes:

 Unexpected trauma such as hitting or snagging can cause an irritated reaction.

 Sometimes irritations may not appear until several weeks after the initial trauma incident.

 Skin appearing shiny, red or even dark and tender with a clear discharge

 may indicate that the cleanser or jewelry is not the right one for the new piercing.

 Avoid over cleaning. Discontinue cleanser use if you suspect irritation.

 Friction caused by rough activities, and improper handling methods may cause a bump

 and or permanent dark red or purple discoloration on or near the piercing.

 Stress, diet, fatigue and illness may cause an increased healing period or even migration of the piercing.

 Changing a piercing to an unsafe or unknown metal type can cause serious

 reactions that are often confused with and thought to be an infection.

 Usually the skin will pull away from the jewelry and

appear to be gaping with signs of a metal and cleanser reaction.

 Occasionally the initial jewelry selected may become inappropriate due to unexpected swelling,

 lack of conformation to the body, too big, too small, or even a suspect of a metal materials reaction.

 If you suspect you need an entire re-evaluation of your new piercing jewelry, please call for assistance.

 Depending on the situation of prior service provisions this may or may not include a jewelry fee upgrade.



If you must go swimming with your new piercing during the healing period,

 you must attempt to totally protect it. You can use a product called a “Tegaderm Patch by 3M.”

 It is a water proof patch. There are no guarantees that this product will keep your piercing 100% dry.

 Most clients that have used the patch report that it kept their piercings dry.

 Coating the piercing with a Non-Water Soluble based over the counter cream like Bacitracin or Neosporin

 can be applied alone but may offer minimal or even no protection depending on the situation.

 ESTIMATED INITIAL HEALING TIMES: Nose Cartilage 6-9 months.

 The complete healing of a Nose Piercing can take one year or more.


If you would like to change the positioning or placement of your new piercing,

 You must call within 48 hours to arrange a Re Positioning Service.

 Call immediately for details.
