If you are sick, please (please please please) stay home. Our piercers value their health as well as the health of their families, so we do not want to be in close contact with anyone sick.
If you are unwell we will reschedule your appointment and give you priority in our schedule in order to get you in as soon as possible once you are feeling better. Our piercers reserve the right to cancel your appointment on the spot if you show up for your piercing visibly unwell.
Be honest about any health concerns, your piercer is a professional and has a responsibility under data protection to work in a confidential manner. Be honest if you do not like the position your piercer has suggested for your piercing. It is your piercing, take the time to look at where the potential piercing will be sited, for example with a facial piercing smile/frown/pout, etc. with body piercings stretch and twist, etc. Keep calm, try and relax, take a deep breath and slowly let it out as the piercing takes place. Tensing up can cause some difficulties with piercing certain areas e.g. nipples. Follow the aftercare advice given to you by your piercer; while friends and relatives can be well-meaning and may consider themselves an expert because they also have a piercing, your piercer is in the best position to advise you.
This can be caused if you are using mouthwash too frequently and/or if it contains alcohol as it can destroy the layer of healthy bacteria on the top of your tongue. If this is the case, reduce the number of times you use mouthwash.
If you have a rash, burn, broken skin, or sunburn in the area that will be pierced, you must wait until the skin has healed before you can receive the piercing. It is possible to pierce through scar tissue (to re-pierce an area where you used to have a piercing, for example), but the scar must be completely healed. If you remove a piercing and wish to re-pierce the area, in most cases you should wait for one to two months after removing the jewelry for the old piercing to fully heal.
Ideally, you should wait at least three times as long as the advised healing period before attempting any stretch. Stretching piercings takes time and patience. Scar tissue can build up and create ugly, problematic piercings that can be difficult to stretch. This allows the new skin some time to thicken and toughen up before it gets traumatized by the enlarging process. If you do decide to start to stretch your piercing keep the area clean, you may find that your stretch will smell this is due to a build-up of dead skin cells and bacteria.
