Tips for Piercing after care

 In Piercing, Tattoos

At Mantra Tattoo Studio we are very conscious about the work we do and while providing the best piercings in Denver, we have one or two tricks up our sleeve when it comes to the piercing aftercare that we would like to share:

IS IT NORMAL?  Yes it is normal that you experience some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness, or bruising on the area of the piercing, also you can experience some itching.

OK, SO WHAT DO I DO NOW?  Before touching your pierced area, make sure your hands are clean, we usually recommend a Saline Soak, for certain piercings it may be easier to apply using clean gauze or paper towels saturated with the saline solution. Afterwards rinse and dry the area.  Repeat at least twice a day for the indicated time.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?  The healing process takes from 2 weeks to one month depending on the piercing and area where its done. Don’t remove the piercing! Unless is its strictly necessary never remove the piercing yourself during the healing process.

ITS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?  Make sure you use only the aftercare products recommended by our staff. Avoid excessive cleaning of the piercing or the area. Avoid oral contact, rough play and any contact with any other body fluids while you are healing. Stay away from lakes, pools, hot tubs and the ocean to avoid any infection.

Make sure that you are going to an APP member and certified piercing artist to avoid bad experiences and remember at Mantra Tattoo Studio we are certified. Randy and Lil Chris are waiting for you!
