Welcome to the world of piercings! Here at Seven Tattoo Studio, we know that your new piercing isn't just a fashion statement - it's a bold, personal leap into self-expression.
While ear piercings might seem commonplace, even these everyday expressions of personal style demand the right aftercare to prevent complications. From infections to shrinkage, seemingly minor mishaps can have major consequences if not handled correctly.
Here's our expert-guided journey to ensuring your piercing heals perfectly:
Patience is key. Leave your starter earrings in for at least six weeks - even when you sleep. Premature removal can lead to closures.
Cleanliness is your best ally. Wash your hands before touching your new piercing. Daily cleansing of your piercing with mild, fragrance-free soap and water helps prevent infection.
Rinse and Repeat. Rinse away the soap thoroughly after washing to avoid irritation. Keep water out of your ear as much as possible.
Moisture means healing. Use a squeeze tube of petroleum jelly to apply a thin coat around each opening. This keeps your piercing moist and promotes faster healing.
Be vigilant. Look out for any redness, soreness, puffiness, or yellowish discharge - these could signal an infection. If these symptoms persist, consult a board-certified dermatologist immediately.
Invest in your piercing like you invest in yourself. Your journey doesn't end once you leave Seven Tattoo Studio - it just begins. Take these steps to heart and ensure your new piercing heals flawlessly, just like the masterpiece it is.
