PIERCING AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS:

afterYour piercing was done with sterile equipment and procedure. We guarantee the workmanship. Healing and care of your piercing is your responsibility. For questions or concerns contact Chameleon Ink at (360) 676-7330 or visit www.safepiercing.org

Always wash your hands with antibacterial soap before caring for your piercing.

Saline Soak – Apply sterile wound wash solution, or as an alternative, you can mix your own Mild Sea Salt Water Solution. Dissolve 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon of IODINE-FREE SEA SALT into 8oz to 12oz of warm filtered/distilled/boiled water. A stronger mixture is not better.

Process: Soak for 5 to 10 minutes, 2 times per day for the duration of time recommended by your piercer. Either saturate half of a cotton ball compress or completely submerge the piercing. Rinse and let air dry.

Oral Piercings

Alcohol-Free Mouthwash – Listerine Zero, Lakeway Lab Rinse or Biotine is recommended. As an alternative, you can use any alcohol-free, sugar-free, antibacterial, antimicrobial mouthwash.

Process: After eating, drinking (water is ok), smoking, kissing, etc, rinse for 15 seconds. Also make sure to rinse after brushing! If needed, you may dilute mouthwash with 50% water to avoid excess drying.
