Piercing Aftercare

Jewelry Quality 

Jewelry quality is a very important part of easily healing your new piercing and keeping your old piercing healthy. Quality body jewelry has several characteristics which all of our jewelry contains:

  • Jewelry should be internally threaded or threadless

  • Only implant grade metals should be used in initial piercing

  • ASTM F-136 Implant grade certified titanium

  • ASTM F-138 Implant grade certified stainless steel

  • Niobium

  • 14k or higher solid gold

  • Platinum

  • Hand polished to a mirror finish

  • Gemstones should be pressed into settings, not glued in

  • Quality gemstones are not made from plastic and glass

  • No acrylics, or plastics

Sterilization

Your safety is our top priority, sterilization is the key to that safety.  

 

  • The Statim 2000 G4 is the fastest and most efficient autoclave in the world

  • It sterilizes items in under 7 minutes

  • It eliminates paper waste and increases vital studio space needed for a wider selection of jewelry

Skin Prep

Skin preparation is very important for a fresh piercing, it is one of the key steps in preventing infection of an open wound. We only use FDA approved pre-sterile applications in a no touch method:

 

  • Pre-sterile povidone iodine swabsticks

  • Pre-sterile 3.15% chlorhexidine gluconate swabsticks 

 

In addition we also use single use pre sterilized markers to show you where your new piercing will be located.
