Aftercare

 Cleaning Instructions for Body Piercings

Wash your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing and jewelry.

Soak your piercing in saline.  We recommend a sterile saline such as  made by dissolving ¼ teaspoon of non-iodized (iodine free) sea salt in one cup of warm distilled or bottled water.  A stronger mixture is not better, saline solution that is too strong can irritate your piercing.

For piercings that allow, invert a cup or shot glass of warm saline solution over the area to form a vacuum for about ten minutes, two to three times daily.  The longer  and more often you soak the better.  For some placements it may be easier to apply using a fresh gauze or cotton ball saturated with saline solution.  When you are finished soaking your piercing,  briefly rinse the area to remove any residue

While showering later up a pearl size drop of the antibacterial soap to clean the jewelry and the piercing. Be sure to use soap twice a day at the most.  Rinse thoroughly to remove all the traces of soap from the piercing.

Pat dry with disposable paper towels or gauze.  Do NOT Cloth towels because they can harbor bacteria and can easily catch on piercings.

Cleaning Instructions For Oral Piercings

Wash your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason

Rinse mouth with saline solution/sea salt mixture for 30 seconds after eating, drinking, or smoking, when you wake up, and before you go to sleep during the entire healing period.

Wash with mild, fragrance free anti-microbial soap in the shower no more than twice daily.

Saline soak at least two to three times daily.  The most effective way to soak a new piercing is to invert a cup of warm saline over the area.  You may also apply clean gauze saturated with warm saline solution to piercing for 5-10 minutes. Briefly rinse after soaking to remove any reside.

Dry by gently patting with clean paper towels or gauze pads.  Cloth Towels can harbor bacteria and snag on jewelry.

What is Normal?

Significant swelling, light bleeding, bruising, and/or tenderness for the first 3-5 days.

Some swelling, light secretion of a whitish yellow fluid (not pus) is normal throughout the entire healing process.

A piercing may seem healed before the healing process is complete.  This is because piercings heal from the outside, in.  Although it feels fine, the tissue remains fragile on the inside.  Be patient and keep cleaning throughout the entire healing period.

Even healed piercings can shrink or close in minutes after having been there for years.  This varies from person to person.  If you like your piercing keep your jewelry in, do not leave the hole empty.

What to Do:

Allow small pieces of ice to dissolve in the mouth.

Take an over the counter, non-steroid anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium immediately after being pierced according to package instructions.

Sleep with your head elvated, use an extra pillow for the first few nights.

If you have any concerns please feel free to stop in or give us a call!


FAQ

Can my friend(s) watch / hold my hand?

You absolutely can bring friends with for moral support as long as they don’t interfere with the piercing process.   We recommend keeping it to one or two people due to limited area available in the piercing room.  Children under the age of 10 are not allowed in the shop unless they are receiving a service.  

Can we take pictures / video?

We request you refrain from taking videos in the piercing room.  Photos are allowed as long as they do not interfere with the piercing process.

How long do I have to leave it in for? / How long until I can change the jewelry?

Except in oral piercings, you want to wear your original jewelry until the healing process is complete. The length of the healing period varies from person to person and piercing to piercing. The chart below is a list of average healing times and only applies when proper aftercare is maintained throughout the healing period.

Oral piercings are the exception because a longer barbell or larger diameter ring is installed initially to allow room for swelling. Once the swelling goes down and the piercing is somewhat healed (usually about 3weeks), most people want to downsize the jewelry. The larger jewelry is usually not preferred aesthetically but more importantly the larger jewelry can catch on your teeth and slide back and forth in the piercing introducing bacteria and impeding the healing process. We strongly urge you to have us change the jewelry for you at this stage to minimize tissue trauma which could cause the piercing to swell up again.

Once the piercing is healed you can change the jewelry if you want but may want us to assist you so the newly formed, delicate skin isn’t damaged.

If you want to keep the piercing it is really never recommended to take the jewelry out  for an extended period of time. Removing and reinstalling jewelry can cause tissue trauma that may require  healing the piercing again. Some piercings stay open longer than others without jewelry in place. How long piercings take to “close up” varies greatly from person to person as well. The longer you’ve had the piercing the more likely it is to stay open. Piercings don’t necessarily “close” or “heal” up but they shrink down to a size that can make reinsertion difficult or impossible. The best way to find out how long you can leave your piercing out for is trial and error with gradually increasing periods without wearing the jewelry. Take your jewelry out for an hour. Put it back in. If it goes back in easily, leave it out a little longer the next time. If it doesn’t go back in very easily don’t take it out out again for a while.

What are age requirements for piercing?

Minors under 12 may only get their earlobes pierced.

Minors 9 and under must make an appointment at least a day prior during the week.  We want to be sure we have plenty of time to calm any nerves and answer any questions.

13 year olds may pierce their nostril, navel, ear rim/helix, as well as lobes.

16 year old may pierce their rook, tragus, conch, eyebrow, lip, monroe, medusa, navel, nostril, ear rim, helix, septum, industrial and lobes.

All other piercings require the client to be over 18 years of age.

If the client is under 18, all of the following requirements must be met in order to be pierced

These are state regulations and will be strictly enforced to be sure we are complying with the State's requirements.  If you have any questions of acceptable forms of identification, feel free to call the shop. 

  • Parent or legal guardian must accompany the minor to sign for consent and must stay on premises during the procedure.
  • Both parent and minor must have valid photo IDs. School IDs are acceptable for the minor.
  • Bring along a birth certificate, adoption papers or other proof of guardianship. If the guardian’s name is different on ID and birth certificate, change of name forms are also required. We require a state seal or notarized documentation.  No copies will be accepted.
  • Parents must assume responsibility for aftercare!! Kids cannot be expected to be as diligent about aftercare as they need to be without parental supervision and reminders.
  • We reserve the right to refuse piercing someone when circumstances suggest a low potential for successful healing.

How long will it take my piercing to Heal?

Healing times vary from person to person and different piercings have different healing ranges.  Diligently following aftercare will help speed up the healing process. Touching your piercing, using improper aftercare products, and moving the jewelry excessively will prolong the healing period.  

Do you use a needle or a gun for piercings?

We use a single use, hollow needle for every piercing done at Leviticus.  Piercing guns were first used to tag cows, they should not be used to pierce humans.  They can not be sterilized, the jewelry used in them is blunt causing quite a bit of trauma during the process and ending with uncomfortable jewelry that is recommended to be worn for an extended period of time.  Also, people wielding piercing guns have only had a day or  

I HAVE A METAL SENSITIVITY, CAN I STILL GET PIERCED?

We only use high quality body jewelry from companies such as Industrial Strength, Anatometal, LeRoi, and Neometal as well as various other well known  distributors.  All of our jewelry is Implant Grade Surgical Steel or Titanium and mirror polished.  The finish on the jewelry is just as important as the finish.  Small scratches in the jewelry surface will prolong the healing period.  The newly forming skin starts to heal around and into those small scratches, preventing the piercing from healing.  

What happens to my navel piercing if I get pregnant?

If the piercing is still healing when you become pregnant it’s probably best to simply remove it so your immune system can be fully devoted to your baby. If the piercing is healed, some women are able to wear their navel piercing throughout their pregnancy, some may find it more comfortable to remove it or replace it with a flexible plastic barbell. Some doctors may also request that it be removed. We can help you change the jewelry to a more flexible plastic barbell to retain the piercing through pregnancy. If you’ve taken your jewelry out due to pregnancy and the piercing is healed and well established, chances are fairly good that we could reopen the hole after delivery. The sooner you try to replace it the more likely we are to be successful.

Can I still breast feed if I pierce my nipples?

Nipple piercings to have an adverse effect on breast feeding since milk is secreted through gland throughout the nipple.  The jewelry should be removed for the sake of your baby’s mouth. Due to frequency and tenderness during breast feeding jewelry should be kept out until the baby is weened. Ocassionally we can reopen the piercings after breast feeding is finished. If they can not be reopened, the can usually be repierced in the same location.
