Nipple Piercing Aftercare

Nipple Piercing

Your nipple has been pierced by a professional body piercer and pierced using an implantation steel captive bead ring or implantation steel barbell of the highest quality available. The rest of the healing process is up to you. Following this simple guide should enable you to have a great piercing that when healed will look great now and for years to come. Remember one thing no matter how good your piercing may appear over the next 1 to 2 months (4 to 8 weeks) it’s not healed and care must be exercised in handling it. Your piercing will not be seasoned (toughened) until you reach 1 year from the date of the piercing , so damage from changing jewellery or wearing inappropriate jewellery in the piercing is still possible within that time period.

New Piercing Aftercare

1) Clean your nipple piercing twice a day for the next 3 days, once in the morning and again at night. You can do this in the shower or bath but you must always rinse the piercing out using fresh running water.

1a) Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap-up and Rinse off using your normal bath products. We don’t want any other cleaning or grooming products to enter a piercing we are trying to clean. Leave cleaning your nipple piercing as the last thing you clean before exiting the shower or bath.

1b) Using your Soft Soap brand liquid anti-bacterial soap apply a small amount to your hand and lather it up. Once lathered, apply this to the nipple piercing and jewellery, working it into the piercing by rotating the ring. Once the Soft Soap is in the piercing wait a few moments then rinse the piercing in running water again rotating the ring or shuffle the barbell to ensure all the soap is out of the nipple and piercing.

1c) Come out of the shower or bath and towel dry, but use a tissue to dry the nipple piercing out thoroughly (towels can retain bacteria and should not be used on new or fresh piercings)

After 3 Days

Follow the above steps 1a through 1c only once a day for the next three to four weeks. Between actual cleanings you may rotate the ring or shuffle the barbell only under running water after you have soaped up and rinsed off and don’t intend on using any other cleaning or grooming products.

After 4 Weeks

Follow the above steps 1a through 1c only once every 2 or 3 days for the next three to four months. Over cleaning is the number one cause of irritated nipple piercings, stripping the natural skin oils will tend to dry the nipple piercing out causing it to look red and irritated.

Things Not to Do with New Nipple Piercings

Do Not use Epsom Salts, Table Salt, Betadine, Tea Tree Oil, Polysporin, Neosporin, Bacitracin, Bactroban, Bactine or any other topical solution or ointment on your piercing what so ever. These products are not for use on Puncture Wounds! If it’s not listed on the above aftercare guide don’t use it on the piercing!.

Do Not use Sun Block, Sun Tan Lotion, Baby Oil or any other skin care product on a new or unseasoned piercing.

If you think you have trouble with your piercing contact your piercer and NEVER remove the jewellery from a suspected infected piercing.

The Smoking Gun The Smoking Gun Piercing guns have been the rage for many years prior to the advent of the modern body piercing movement, even then they were looked upon with an amount of disgust by the medical profession. One of the early versions of a professional "physician grade" autoclave safe piercing gun is depicted below. At the least this gun was operated by hand pressure and was used by a physician to insert metal studs into ear lobes.

The Great Debates The Great Debates From aftercare to jewellery preference, there will never be a time when two piercers will agree on absolutely everything. Is a piercer wrong or unprofessional because s/he prefers to use bent barbells instead of rings for navel piercings? Recommends Listerine instead of Oral-B? Uses 14 gauge barbells for tongue piercings?

I want to get a Piercing I want to get a Piercing! Shop around, visit the shops you have interest in and talk to the piercers, look at the studios ask some smart questions. Don't price shop, use your head, we are talking about your body and putting a hole in it somewhere. Do your research on the piercing you want then ask the piercer about the piercing and the aftercare for the piercing. Use common sense and gut instinct.

It's Infected, now what? It's infected now what? Professional piercers know much more about body piercing than the average person, so this in mind, you have to pick a course of action. Start by seeing your piercer as soon as possible. Infections are easy to treat so long as they are handled quickly and properly..

Common Sense Aftercare Aftercare is a simple procedure in the care of any body piercing from simple ear piercings to the extreme piercings, but you have to remember some common points with all aftercare instructions. Many clients quickly forget half of what they are told in the studio after getting a piercing, partly due to the excitement of the piercing and partly from the rush of having just got what they wanted for a while.
