**General healing time for all piercings is approximately 6-8 months. Healing varies with each individual, their body and the type of piercing(s) they received.


Some restrictions include, 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, pools, etc; In addition, avoid all contact (touching or playing) and sleeping on your piercing(s).
