Not following stated instructions might result in consequences such as infections, wrong healing and jewelry migration or jewelry rejections, scars, allergies and similar problems! So please stick to instructions carefully, precisely and regularly!

In order to successfully and safely perform your piercing, we strictly follow the rules of positioning, we use sterile, single use needles, sterile tools and jewelry made of implantation materials, anatomically adapted to the part of the body where it should be placed.

After piercing you should provide for proper healing. Therefore, you have to strictly follow the instructions that we have compiled here, and in the case of any problems with your piercing you should as soon as possible come to the studio for an inspection. We do not charge for these inspections!

During the whole healing time period you should not:

  • touch the piercing with your fingers (unless you are cleaning or washing it)
  • play with the piercing, turn it around or pull it
  • take out and put back the jewelry
  • sleep on the piercing
  • use any cosmetics near the pierced area (crèmes, powders, shower gels)
  • swim in swimming pools, rivers, lakes or take a bath in a tub (sea is allowed)
  • wear tight clothes around pierced area (e.g. seam of the trousers over the belly button)
  • bring piercing in touch with bodily fluids of other people (sexual intercourse, contact sports)

During the healing time period don not clean piercing more than two-three times a day because it will irritate the wound and make healing process slower. For the first few months (depending on the part of the body where piercing is placed) the piercing spot is the wound and it needs air to heal. Covering it with sticking plaster or gauze would prevent skin to breathe and harden healing. After healing period continue with gentle care and keep yourself from situations that might end with hitting or pushing the piercing spot because it may cause the problems even when healing process is over.


(valid for all piercing except those additionally explained later)

Buy yourself an OCTENISEPT spray in the pharmacy and the liquid PH 5.5 soap.

First two to four weeks you should:

  • Clean piercing every day in the morning, noon and in the evening,
  • Do not clean it more than two to three times a day because it will additionally irritate the wound

Cleaning procedure:

  • During showering and wash gently soap the piercing are with PH 5.5 soap
  • Carefully rinse the piercing with warm water
  • If some crusts appeared around the hole and on the jewelry, gently remove it with the cotton ear sticks
  • Dry up the piercing area with the paper tissue (do not use regular towel as it gathers bacteria)
  • Disinfect the piercing with Octenisept (it is enough to spray it once) and leave the area to dry by itself
  • For places which cannot be sprayed (e.g. septum) use ear sticks soaked with Octenisept

By the end of healing period one should:

  • After first two to four weeks keep using PH 5.5 soap for cleaning piercing and in the shower
  • Use Octenisept 2-3-5 times a week if needed
  • If crusts keep appearing around piercing you can clean it several times a day with physiological solution (bought in the pharmacy!)


For the first 1-2 weeks after piercing:

  • Small bleeding and swelling
  • Pain and tingling
  • Bruises
  • Redness
  • Crusts
  • Excretions of lymph

During healing time period:

  • Smaller redness and yellowish crusts
  • Itching
  • Dry skin around piercing

Piercing may look as it healed completely much before the end of the healing period stated because the healing process starts from the outside to the inside of the tubule. Young tissue in the middle is still sensitive although it all looks fine. Because of that, we do not recommend the change of initial jewelry until at least one half of the healing period is over.

If the jewelry drops out or for some reason you have to take it out before piercing is healed, the tubule will probably very soon get smaller and it may cause harder the returning of the jewelry. If you cannot return the jewelry gently, do not try to push it forcefully as it may cause damage to the young tissue inside the tubule.

In that case, as soon as possible, visit the studio for the jewelry to be returned to prevent complete closing of the tubule.


Cleaning according general cleaning procedure.

It is needed to change the pillow bedding more often, wash your hair and disinfect mp3 earplugs, mobile phone, glasses or anything else that makes contact with piercing. Be careful not to get caught while changing clothes, whipping with the towel, combing the hair, etc.

Outer part is cleaned according general cleaning procedure and the inside of the nostril can only occasionally be cleaned with the ear stick soaked in physiological solution bought in the pharmacy. Be careful not to pull out the jewelry while using towel on your face or while blowing the air through the nose. The inner side of the nose is covered with mucosal so the tubule closes very quickly if it is without the jewelry.

If the jewelry eventually comes out and you cannot put it back, put one thing strait earring in the tubule to prevent it from closing and go to the studio as soon as possible for placement of original jewelry (never wear strait jewelry as it is not jewelry for piercing on the nose and for wearing for several days). While blowing your nose, do not press the piercing spot as it can cause keloid scar to appear.

Outer part is cleaned according general cleaning procedure.

The inner side you should rinse with cool water after eating crisps, chocolate, and cakes or after smoking a cigarette. After big meals breakfast, lunch and dinner you should wash out your mouth with Ozosept solution or Hexoral (necessarily bought at the pharmacy). Be careful not to pull or damage the piercing with toothbrush.

If you are using mouth wash dilute it with water (half & half) as it could be irritable for the fresh piercing. For the first seven days after piercing avoid chewing gums and gummy bear bonbons as the constant chewing may irritate fresh piercing. Pulling, playing with the piercing or hitting may hurt gums, which can lead to bleeding and lowering of the gums. Swelling and eventual bleeding may be eased with some ice.

If you have labret as your initial jewelry (small stick with a ball on the outer side), be careful not to bite it while eating as for the initial piercing we put longer jewelry in order to enable the lip to swell. The jewelry may be replaced with shorter one minimum one month after the piercing.


Cartilage has weaker circulation from the rest of the body and is more likely to develop keloid scars around piercing. If you notice any kind of new lump around jewelry, schedule an examination with us as soon as possible. Sleeping on the piercing may encourage growth of keloid scars!

Be careful and avoid contact of the Octenisept and your eye.

Piercing on the eyebrow is very keen of rejection, which means that the skin which keeps the jewelry may become thinner and the body eventually rejects the jewelry. If you notice that except the balls you may see the small stick of the jewelry more and more, it is necessary to schedule an appointment for inspection.

General cleaning procedure is not valid for the tongue  

Brushing your teeth regularly after meals and rinsing with solutions such as Hexoral or Ozosept after drinking or smoking is enough hygiene wise. If you use a mouthwash, dilute it with water (half & half) as it may be irritating for fresh piercing. A tongue piercing inevitably causes swelling and pain in the tongue. The pain decreases after 3-4 days, and pain disappears after 8-10 days. You may take pain killers such as Voltaren or Ibuprofen. For the first ten days the tongue will be white on the surface. Do not try to clean it with the tooth brush but wait for it to disappear by itself.

During first two weeks it is usual to feel hardness around piercing, lymph discharge (transparent whitish mucus) and sometimes loss of taste. All the stated eventually comes back to normal state. Warm food and warm beverages increase the swelling and the pain. Also avoid spicy food and chewing gums and gummy bear bonbons for the first two weeks.

Eat slower and chew carefully trying not to bite the jewelry as it may damage your teeth. The tongue swells more during the night, so check the upper and lower ball each morning. If you notice that more than half of the ball is inside the tongue, push the ball out until you can see it completely. On the lower ball you will occasionally notice some scales which need to be cleaned with tooth brush or carefully remove it with toothpick.

The jewelry we insert during piercing is much bigger due to the swelling. It can be replaced by a smaller one a month and a half after the piercing. This change is not necessary as the jewelry is made of implantation materials but if you assess that the length of the stick does not fit you, you may take the shorter one.


It is recommended to wear clean, cotton and comfortable clothes that do not make pressure on piercing

Cleaning according general cleaning procedure.


Sleeping on the stomach may cause jewelry migration. If you notice that the jewelry moved from the starting piercing spot, it is necessary to go, as soon as possible, and inspect it.    .

With female nipples piercing it is recommended wearing cotton bras that do not tighten the piercing. Inner side of the bra may be covered with a piece of gauze or paper tissue in direct contact with piercing.


Small folds of the skin inside the navel are suitable for collection of lymph and ichors after piercing and it is suitable for development of bacteria. While cleaning, it is necessary to use ear sticks for complete successful and detailed cleaning of the area under lower ball. Sleeping on the stomach may cause migration or rejection of the jewelry.

Wearing too big or too heavy jewelry can also encourage rejection. If you notice that your skin that keeps jewelry is thinner and you can not only see the ball but the stick as well, it is necessary to come for an inspection. If the skin becomes thinner than 5mm it is necessary to take the jewelry out to prevent breaking as it causes quite a big scar. Redness around piercing on the navel is usual in the first few weeks. Try to sit straight in order not to make pressure on the jewelry and thus irritate the fresh piercing.

Instead of PH 5.5 soap use intimate care soap

If piercing passes through the urethra, you should urinate after the cleaning and rinsing in order to remove the soap and disinfectant residues, and thus avoid irritations. Use preservatives and avoid oral contact for at least two months after the piercing. After sexual intercourse wash a wider area around piercing. The over usage of anti bacterial soaps and Octenisept can disrupt vaginal flora and hence cause yeast infections, irritations and similar.

For vaginal piercing we recommend you to wear cotton pads every day. For male genital piercing we recommend slip underwear, rather than boxer shorts. Prince Albert, Ampallang and Apadravya may bleed in the beginning so you should always have paper tissues at hand. Ice helps to stop bleeding.


Cleaning according general cleaning procedure.

If you notice that the skin around holes is dry or irritated after two weeks use of Octenisept, you may continue to clean piercing with physiological solution bought at the pharmacy. Surface piercing is placed on the strait skin so is much keener to rejection than standard piercing placed always at some fold of skin.

Very often, even after longer wearing, you will have a migration or growth out of piercing without any visible reason. Sleeping on the piercing or getting stuck on the jewelry additionally increase possibility for complications. If you notice that the jewelry stick is more and more visible or that the skin color between balls has changed the color (from dark red to brown) it is necessary to come for an inspection as soon as possible.

The surface piercing with jewelry longer than 14mm it is good to handle the skin on the side with your fingers while cleaning the piercing so that the jewelry protrudes out and gently move it so that the middle part of the tubule disinfects. If it is hard to move the jewelry or it is impossible, wait for another seven days with this procedure and clean the piercing only around the holes.


If you notice changes on the piercing which make you uncertain if they are usual or not, please visit the studio as soon as possible for an inspection. Inspection and help (removing and replacement of jewelry) are free of charge!

Before you start using any of the stated products, it is necessary to consult your piercing master. Wrong treatment of an infected piercing or keloid scar may increase the problem. Do not in any case combine usage of several products at the same time as it may lead to greater irritation of piercing and harder and slower healing.


You will notice them by whitish, yellowish or greenish secret from the hole. Transparent whitish ichors that sometimes leak out of fresh piercing is probably only lymph but if you are worried, please come on an inspection. In the case of infection, do not take the jewelry out to prevent the holes around infection from closing and thus disabling drainage and prolonging healing.

Drainage of the infection is enhanced with usage of warm compress. Put gauze soaked with warm physiological solution on infected piercing. It will take out more secretion while cleaning.

With weak white secretion, clean the piercing with Octenisept and PH 5.5 soap as after piercing process itself. If the infection does not disappear after seven days visit us for an inspection.

With abundant white or yellow secretion, you need to gently press out all the pos from the piercing tubule while taking a shower in the morning and in the evening. Dry the area with paper tissue and soak it with Betadine liquid for outside use (do not rinse!). If infection does not disappear after 1-2 weeks of Betadine solution usage, visit us for an inspection. Betadine is iodine solution and must not be used at the same time as Octenisept.


Additional complication of the infection may be an abscess – cocooned infection without excretion. Symptoms include redness and swelling or bumps (usually painful if touched) around piercing and it is not necessary to have any leaking out of it. Abscess may seriously damage your health so urgently visit your general practitioner doctor. It can be healed with antibiotics and we are not authorized to prescribe you or recommend its use. The cocoon of the abscess needs to be removed surgically sometimes. Abscesses are usually localized with the jewelry except in cases of nipple piercing where they can appear a few centimeters away.


Localized inflammation by streptococcus can be treated as follows: break the tops of pimples, put hot gauze on them, keep for 2 -3 minutes and then apply antibiotic cream (not ointment, as it takes longer to act).

If the pimples reappear, consult your doctor, to prescribe you an antibiotic.


Wild flesh (keloid scar) growth around the hole is consequence of:

  • irritation by clothes that presses piercing,
  • playing with piercing
  • sleeping on the jewelry,
  • wearing too tight clothes that makes pressure
  • cracking after hits
  • overstretching the pierced skin,
  • use of cosmetics (sun tanning creams, scented soaps and shampoos)
  • fungus etc.

Keloid cannot heal until the source of irritation is removed. On most of piercing keloid scar looks like under skin pimple – lump in skin color or red bubble sometimes leaking with whitish pus. On the inner side of lips and on tongue, keloid is a white lump of wild flesh around the hole.

Treating keloid scars:

1. Geocorton ointment - twice a day apply with ear stick and leave.

2. Hydrogen peroxide - only for fungus keloids; soak once a day.

3. Vitamin-E oil - apply once a day, leave for 10 minutes and then rinse.

4. Aspirin paste - just for tongue and lip (grind ¼ of aspirin into a fine powder, add 1-2 drops of water and make a paste. Apply on the keloid once a day, keep for 5 minutes and then rinse)


Migration of piercing on a side or outside the primary position of piercing is  caused by:

  • Sleeping on the piercing
  • Getting stuck
  • Hitting
  • Stretching the skin due to weight gained or pregnancy
  • Clothes pressure
  • Wearing too big or too heavy jewelry, and similar.

Most often, it is accompanied by other complications such as keloid scar or infections. The growing out and migration process will be noticed when the skin that keeps piercing changes color, becomes thinner and dries, as well as when the stick of the jewelry is more visible or the whole jewelry is moved on a side from the insertion position. In the case that you notice any of these issues, as soon as possible visit the studio for an inspection and assessment if the jewelry need to be replaced with appropriate size or completely removed. If we do not do it soon enough, the skin will break and leave a scar.


The time needed for full healing of piercing varies depending on the body position, your anatomy, immune system and number of other circumstances so that the healing my last longer or shorter than stated period.
