What's next after your piercing?

It's important that you keep your piercing clean and uncovered during its healing process. Our piercing team will give you some saline solution to take home with you and you must use this to carefully clean your piercing in the morning and evening.

Around 2 to 4 weeks after your piercing, you may have noticed some yellow ‘crusties’ forming around your piercing. This is totally normal, & you should not pick at them. Instead, continue cleaning as usual & only remove the ‘crusties’ if they naturally come away from the skin without being picked at.

Your piercing jewellery is no different to any other jewels you may own. Great care needs to be taken when handling & wearing it. We cannot be liable for lost or damaged body/piercing jewellery & we strongly recommend cleaning your jewels gently, not fiddling with it, and being mindful when putting on & removing your face mask. If your jewellery feels loose at any stage, please do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible so we can rectify this for you.

Please take special note of our aftercare tips below to make sure your piercing heals correctly.
