Piercing Aftercare

Oral Piercings (lip, cheek, tongue, etc): Your piercing may swell for 1-3 weeks. Take ibuprofen, suck on ice, drink very cold water to help aid in reducing inflammation. For the first 3 weeks rinse your mouth with Bluewave and/or X-pression after anything that enters your mouth aside from bottled water. The outside of your mouth around the piercing should be cleaned twice a day with an Tattoo Goo Soap Bluewave / X-pression. It is important not to intake alcohol, or consume tobacco products for the initial healing period to avoid irritating your piercing severely.
 
DO NOT: Use Alcohol, Peroxide, Hibiclens, Betadine, or any petroleum based product such as Bacitracin or Neosporin. AND NO NOT LISTEN TO YOUR FRIENDS! If you have any concerns, please contact your piercer via the info listed on the opposite side of this card.
 
General Piercings (ears, septum, nostril, navel, surface, nipple, etc.): In the shower wash your piercing, jewelry, and surrounding area once a day with Tattoo goo soap. Be sure to clean the entire area, and rinse the soap off thoroughly. After shower, clean the piercing and jewelry with a liberal application of Bluewave and/or X-pression using a q-tip. Use the q-tip to gently wipe away any dried “crusty” material or blood. Do this 2 to 3 times a day. Do not rinse Bluewave / X-pression off.
