Rules of Aftercare:
•Wash your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing and jewelry.
• We recommend a sterile saline or sea salt solution 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. We oﬀer a pre-mixed solution that is available for purchase (PRO-SPRAY). Apply using a fresh gauze or cotton ball. Pat dry with disposable paper towels or gauze.
•Do NOT use cloth towels because they can harbor bacteria and can easily catch on piercings.
•Do NOT use rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, Neosporin, or any kind of triple antibiotic ointment.
•You may take an over the counter, non-steroid anti-inﬂammatory such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium for pain or swelling.
HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN CHANGE THE JEWELRY?
•Be mindful of your new piercing and avoid touching it unless you are cleaning it.
•Periodically check that the balls are tightened securely.
•Do not soak or submerge your piercing until it is completely healed. No lakes, pools, hot tubs, baths, etc.
•A piercing can take anywhere from 3 to 9 months depending on the speciﬁc piercing, that can ﬂuctuate depending on the individual.
•Use common sense if you are advised to follow diﬀerent aftercare methods other than those listed above. Be aware there are many products on the market that can slow healing and/or promote an allergic reaction.
QUESTIONS & CHECK UPS
•We use hollow needles for all piercings, never a gun.
•We use nitrile gloves, not latex.
•We use the highest grade surgical stainless steel for jewelry to ensure proper healing and to avoid irritation due to metal sensitivity.
•You are welcome to bring friends with you 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 space available in the piercing room.
•Every piercing done at Bombshell is guaranteed and you are encouraged to stop in for a check up any time.
•Do not hesitate to stop by or call if you have any questions or concerns.
