CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve just received a body piercing(s) by a skilled and knowledgeable professional who cleaned and disinfected the area pierced, used sterile instruments, jewelry and single use needle.
NOW IT’S UP TO YOU TO TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR PIERCING(s) DURING THE CRUCIAL PROCESS. PERIOD. HOW YOUR PIERCING(s) HEALS IS UP TO YOU AND YOUR BODY.
General healing time for all piercings is 2-6 months. Healing varies with each individual, their body and the type of piercing(s) they received.
For best results, the use of multivitamins, a clean healthy diet and proper hygiene is recommended.
WHAT TO AVOID During The Healing Process: Physical activities such as working out or playing sports. Water activities such as swimming, surfing, and diving. Avoid submersion of water such as going inside hot tubs, etc;
In addition, avoid all contact (touching or playing) and sleeping on your piercing(s). Be cautious during your daily routines and try not to have it yanked, smacked or pulled on. Doing so will cause complications, pain and even a possibility of a keloid forming (a.k.a piercing bump). Tea Tree Oil is one of our recommendations for the treatment of keloids.

White, clear or yellow discharge/pus is normal. So, don’t worry it’s your body healing. Any other color such as green pus is a sign of an infection.
