Aftercare

 Cleaning Instructions for Body Piercings

Keep the new piercing clean, dry and do not touch. 

Wash your hands thoroughly.  Spray entrance and exit holes with Neil Med wound wash saline solution (.9% sterile saline) 2 times daily. 

Wipe away any discharge and/or debris from the jewelry with a non-woven gauze or q-tip saturated with saline.

Dry the piercing after cleaning. A fan or hairdryer on the cool setting is ideal. You may also fan the new piercing with your hand to dry it.

A clean pillowcase or t-shirt over your pillow is recommended for ear and facial piercings, as well as clean bedding to minimize exposure to germs. 

Continue to clean the piercing through the entire healing process. Piercings heal from the outside, in.  Although it may seem healed the tissue inside remains fragile.

Return for the downsize as ill fitting jewelry can irritate a piercing and/or shift the piercing channel.

Please consult a health care professional at the first sign of infection. 

what to avoid

Avoid touching your piercing. This causes contamination resulting in irritation or infection. 

Do not remove your jewelry during the healing process unless instructed by a medical professional.

Avoid applying make-up, soap, facial cleanser, or any other cosmetics on or near the piercing site.

Do not use harsh chemicals, ointments (Bacitracin/Neosporin), or “natural” aftercare products such as tea tree oil or chamomile.

Do not leave wet hair down on your piercing while healing.

Avoid swimming or submerging the piercing site for 2-4 months. 

Do not touch, twist or turn jewelry while healing. 

oral piercing specifics

Rinse a new oral piercing with water any time you eat, drink, or smoke.

Drink plenty of filtered cold or ice water. This can help alleviate swelling.

Use a new toothbrush and natural toothpaste that doesn’t contain sodium lauryl sulfate.

Elevate your head with an extra pillow while sleeping to help reduce swelling.

Avoid alcohol, spicy and salty foods and foods hot in temperature during the healing process.

Avoid harsh products containing alcohol such as Listerine, this kills the bacteria needed for healing.

Avoid sharing food and beverages as well as wet kissing and oral sex while healing to avoid the spread of bacteria. 

Downsizing jewelry is especially important in oral piercings as ill fitting jewelry can lead to tooth and gum damage.


FAQ

Can my friend(s) watch / hold my hand?

You may bring a friend with for moral support as long as they don not interfere with the piercing process.  We typically allow one support person who is over the age of 18 in the piercing room with the client's consent.  Minors are not allowed in the shop unless they are receiving a service.  

Can we take pictures / video?

We request you refrain from taking videos in the piercing room.  Photos are allowed as long as they do not interfere with the piercing process.

How long do I have to leave it in for? / How long until I can change the jewelry?

You want to wear the original jewelry for the first 4-6 weeks, and downsize the post as the swelling goes down.  In oral piercing, downsizing is typically done more than once and the first time about 2 weeks after being pierced.  The length of the healing period varies from person to person and piercing to piercing. 

Oral piercings need to be downsized frequently during the healing process as the initial jewelry accommodates for swelling and as the swelling goes down the jewelry can catch and cause oral damage if not downsized. 

Once the piercing is fully  healed you can change the jewelry if you would like.  We are always happy to assist you in changing jewelry so the newly formed, delicate skin is not damaged.

If you want to keep the piercing it is never recommended to take the jewelry out  for an extended period of time. Removing and reinstalling jewelry can cause tissue trauma that may require  healing time. Some piercings stay open longer than others without jewelry in place. How long piercings take to “close up” varies greatly from person to person as well. The longer you’ve had the piercing the more likely it is to stay open. Piercings don’t necessarily “close” or “heal” up but they shrink down to a size that can make reinsertion difficult or impossible. The best way to find out how long you can leave your piercing out for is trial and error with gradually increasing periods without wearing the jewelry. Take your jewelry out for an hour. Put it back in. If it goes back in easily, leave it out a little longer the next time. If it doesn’t go back in very easily don’t take it out out again for a while.

What are age requirements for piercing?

There are strict guidelines when piercing minors issued by the Minnesota Department of Health. We must have all of the documentation listed in order to pierce, check on or change jewelry for minors. This documentation must be brought with for every visit.

Minors under 12 may get their earlobes pierced.

Minors between 7 and 9 years old must make an appointment.  We reserve every Monday through Thursday at 1PM only  for these appointments.  We understand this may not be ideal for everyone’s schedule, however, it is when the shop is the quietest and the way we are able to offer a service that is not offered other places. It also ensures your child is the first person of the day.

13 year olds may pierce their nostril, ear rim/helix, as well as lobes.

16 year old may pierce their rook, tragus, conch, eyebrow, lip, monroe, medusa, navel, nostril, ear rim, helix, septum, and lobes.

All other piercings require the client to be over 18 years of age.

If the client is a minor, all of the following requirements must be met in order to be pierced

These are state regulations and will be strictly enforced to be sure we are complying with the State's requirements.  If you have any questions of acceptable forms of identification, feel free to call the shop. 

  • Parent or legal guardian must accompany the minor to sign for consent and must stay on premises during the procedure.

  • Both parent and minor must have valid photo IDs. School IDs are acceptable for the minor. We can also use an Amber Alert Card, Lifetouch Card, or Yearbook.

  • Bring along a birth certificate, adoption papers or other proof of guardianship with a state seal or notary stamp. If the guardian’s name is different on ID and birth certificate, change of name forms are also required. We require a state seal or notarized document for the birth certificate and change of name forms. No copies will be accepted.

  • Parents must assume responsibility for aftercare! Minors cannot be expected to be as diligent about aftercare as they need to be without parental supervision and reminders.

  • We reserve the right to refuse piercing someone when circumstances suggest a low potential for successful healing.

These are State regulations and will be strictly enforced to be sure we are complying with theMinnesota Department of Health.  If you have any questions of acceptable forms of identification, feel free to call the shop. 

How long will it take my piercing to Heal?

Healing times vary from person to person and different piercings have different healing ranges.  Diligently following aftercare will help speed up the healing process. Touching your piercing, using improper aftercare products, and moving the jewelry excessively will prolong the healing period.  

Do you use a needle or a gun for piercings?

We use a single use, hollow needle for every piercing done at Leviticus.  Piercing guns were first used to tag cows, they should not be used to pierce humans.  They can not be sterilized, the jewelry used in them is blunt causing quite a bit of trauma during the process and ending with uncomfortable jewelry that is recommended to be worn for an extended period of time.  Also, people wielding piercing guns have only had a day or  

I HAVE A METAL SENSITIVITY, CAN I STILL GET PIERCED?

We only use high quality body jewelry from companies such as Industrial Strength, Anatometal, LeRoi, and Neometal as well as various other well known  distributors.  All of our jewelry is Implant Grade Surgical Steel or Titanium and mirror polished.  The finish on the jewelry is just as important as the material.  Small scratches in the jewelry surface will prolong the healing period because the newly forming skin starts to heal around and into those small scratches, preventing the piercing from healing.  

What happens to my navel piercing if I get pregnant?

If the piercing is still healing when you become pregnant it’s probably best to simply remove it so your immune system can be fully devoted to your baby. If the piercing is healed, some women are able to wear their navel piercing throughout their pregnancy, some may find it more comfortable to remove it or replace it with a flexible plastic barbell. Some doctors may also request that it be removed. We can help you change the jewelry to a more flexible plastic barbell to retain the piercing through pregnancy. If you’ve taken your jewelry out due to pregnancy and the piercing is healed and well established, chances are fairly good that we could reopen the hole after delivery. The sooner you try to replace it the more likely we are to be successful.

Can I still breast feed if I pierce my nipples?

Nipple piercings to have an adverse effect on breast feeding since milk is secreted through gland throughout the nipple.  The jewelry should be removed for the sake of your baby’s mouth. Due to frequency and tenderness during breast feeding jewelry should be kept out until the baby is weened. Ocassionally we can reopen the piercings after breast feeding is finished. If they can not be reopened, the can usually be repierced in the same location.
