WHAT TO DO FOR YOUR NEW PIERCING

- Wash your hands prior to touching the piercing; leave it alone except when cleaning. It is not necessary to rotate the jewelry while healing except possibly during cleaning.

- Stay healthy. Get enough sleep and eat a nutrious diet. The healthier your lifestyle, the easier it will be for your piercing to heal.

- Make sure your bedding is kept clean and changed regularly. Wear clean, comfortable breathable clothing that protects your piercing while sleeping.

- Showering is safer than taking a bath, because bathtubs tend to harbor bacteria. If you would like to take a bath, clean the tub well before each use..
