A new piercing site may be slightly swollen, red and tender, but typically improves over the next several days. You may notice some slight bleeding. While the piercing heals, white or yellow fluid may drain and form a slight crust on the jewelry.

To prevent infection and to encourage healing, take proper care of your piercing.

                  Don't touch the piercing or twist the jewelry unless you're cleaning it.

                Always wash your hands with soap and water before cleaning the piercing.

                Keep clothing away from the piercing. Excessive rubbing or friction can cause irritation and delay healing.

              Oral piercing, especially in the tongue, can cause substantial swelling. Depending on the amount of swelling, you may need a prescription anti-inflammatory medication from your doctor. Melting ice chips in your mouth may help any pain and swelling.

                 Here's how to clean your new piercing:

   Skin piercing (nose, ears, eyebrow, and navel). Wash and Rinse the site with warm water and use a cotton swab to gently remove any crusting. Then apply a dab or a spray of a liquid medicated cleanser to the area. Gently turn the jewelry back and forth to work the cleanser around the opening. Avoid alcohol and peroxide, which can dry the skin. Also avoid ointments, which keep oxygen from reaching the piercing and can leave a sticky residue.

              Oral piercing (tongue, lip, cheek). 

        Use an antibacterial, alcohol-free mouth rinse for 30 to 60 seconds after meals and at bedtime while you’re piercing heals. Brush your teeth with a new, soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid introducing bacteria into your mouth.

      Most piercing take six to eight weeks to heal, but some types may take several months or a year to heal. During this time, you must leave the jewelry in place to prevent the hole from closing. Once scar tissue has created a "tunnel," you can change the jewelry or remove the jewelry for a short time.

Piercing removal

Piercing often close — sometimes quickly — once you remove the jewelry that keeps the hole open. Depending on how long you've had the piercing, you may see a small indentation, hole or possibly scarred tissue when you stop wearing the jewelry.

Precautions to protect yourself

You can decrease the possibility of complications if you look for and ask about the following:

    An autoclave. Tattoos by Chris Uses an autoclave it is a steam sterilization machine that Will and should be used to sterilize Your Tattoo and Piercing Equipment. All non disposable equipment after each customer. Instruments and supplies that can't be sterilized with an autoclave will not be reused by Chris. And throw in the trash or sharp safe. In Accordance's with the law.

Fresh equipment. An unused, sterile needle will be used for all piercing. And Tattoos.

All Needles used by Chris:  tattoo and piercing Are Purchased Already Gas Sterilized.  

                                                                                 ....................................................................................................................................

Reusable materials, tube’s, and clamps, opening and closing pliers are sterilized before every use. The only acceptable sterilization method is an autoclave a steam pressure unit often used in hospitals. Most units run a 55-minute cycle from a cold start, and they kill every organism on the equipment. To do this, an autoclave uses time, temperature and pressure in one of two combinations: 

A temperature of 250° F (121° C) under 10 pounds of pressure for 30 minutes 

A temperature of 270° F (132° C) under 15 pounds of pressure for 15 minutes

I Run the Autoclave At (273°F) at 27 pounds of pressure for 55 Minutes at temperature. The temperatures Above Are Recommendations. (And (273°F) at 27 pounds. just makes me feel safer and satisfied).
....................................................................................................................................

     Gloves. The piercer must wash his or her hands and put on a fresh pair of gloves for each procedure. The piercer should change those gloves if he or she needs to touch anything else, such as the telephone, during the procedure.

      When piercing your ears, make certain that single-use piercing needle is used.  Not a piercing gun Don’t receive a piercing from a reusable piercing gun. These devices typically can't be autoclaved, which will increase your risk of infection. Avoid piercing guns when getting pierced. A piercing gun may crush your skin during the piercing, causing more injury.

                Appropriate hypoallergenic jewelry. Brass and nickel jewelry can cause allergic reactions. Look for surgical-grade steel, titanium, 14- or 18-karat gold, or a metal called niobium. Tattoos by Chris only uses surgical grade stainless steel or gold for a new piercing.

  How piercing is done

A piercing is the insertion of jewelry into an opening made in the ear, nose, eyebrow, lip, tongue or other area of the body. It's traditionally done without anesthesia.

For earlobe piercing, especially in the retail setting, an ear-piercing gun is used to quickly push the earring through the earlobe. This Is Wrong A single-use sterilized piercing needle will only be used by Chris. 

For body piercing (and earlobe), the practitioner pushes a hollow needle through a body part then inserts a piece of jewelry into the hole. (Some practitioners may use a reusable piercing gun for these types of piercing. The devices are difficult to sterilize, however, and can more easily damage the skin. Do not ever let anyone touch you with this.)

Risks of piercing

Due to improvements in safety procedures and equipment, earlobe piercing is generally less risky than other body piercing. However, anytime the skin is punctured, there is a risk of infection or other complications. Specific risks include:

             Scars and keloid, Body piercing can cause scars and keloid, ridged areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue.

             Tearing or trauma. Jewelry can get caught and torn out accidentally. Call a doctor Trauma to a piercing may require surgery or stitches to repair. If not repaired, the damaged   area may develop permanent scars or deformity.
