After Care – What Is Expected

What is Normal?

  • Bleeding, bruising, discoloration, and swelling are not uncommon.  Some tenderness or discomfort by the new piercing is not unusual.  However, if anything exceeds past one week, we suggest coming in for a check-up.
  • Secretion of fluid which is whitish-yellow in color and makes crusties on the jewelry is perfectly normal.  This is not pus but a combination of dead skin cells and blood plasma, which indicates a healing piercing.
  • Be patient and clean through the entire healing time, even if the piercing appears to be healed.
  • Your piercer can answer any questions.
