-Help, I'm getting a piercing bumb!
If you experience any abnormal bumbs starting to form around you new piercing, contact the studio or stop by as soon as you are able! Bumbs like these are normal to experience but it is very important that you get instructions from your piercer on how to care for them so they dont become a permanent problem.
-Can I use chlorhexidine or pyrisept as piercing after care?
No! Please do not use any other aftercare than saline solution/saltwater drops or spray from the pharmacy.
-Oh no I lost my piercing!
If you loose the jewelry it's very important to stop by the studio to get a new one put in as fast as possible or you risk loosing the piercing completely and might have to retake it after it is fully healed. New piercings heal very fast! If you only lost a part of the piercing like a ball, please try to keep the piercing in your ear until you can stop by the studio to replace the missing part.
-I removed my piercing because it wouldn't heal.
If you wanted the piercing and you believe you're having a hard time healing it, please never remove the piercing before consulting with your piercer! We have many different solutions for all possible issues you may be experiencing with your new piercing.
-If I'm underage, does my parents have to follow me to the studio?
We prefear that a parent comes in to sign the consent form with you, but if they absolutely cannot follow you to the studio, we do also accpet video chat from a parent to consent.
-Will nipple piercings affect breastfeeding?
It will not affect future breastfeeding, but you will have to remove the nipple piercings during breastfeeding as this is a possible chocking hazard and can interfere with latching.
-Are infections common in piercings?
Short answer is yes, but you have to act fast and contact your piercer if you suspect you have an infection. If left untreated, certain kinds that start out as trivial can become lethal. Local bacterial infections (at the site of the piercing) are the most common sort, while deeper, larger or systematic infections are fairly rare.
-Will my health condition affect my piercings?
Certain medical conditions make piercings riskier, and in some cases inadvisable. Health problems that weaken your infection-fighting defenses, including diabetes, lupus, HIV/AIDS, and other immune system disorders, can make you slow to heal. You might be more vulnerable to infection, and if you do contract one, it could be more severe and harder to cure.
Some heart disorders make you susceptible to infective endocarditis (a potentially deadly infection of the lining of the heart or heart valves, previously referred to as bacterial endocarditis). If you have a history of this illness or serious cardiac problems like a valve replacement, we will require proof that you have consulted with your doctor before proceeding.
Rashes such as eczema or psoriasis, scars such as keloids, and other skin abnormalities are less serious health issues. If you are considering a piercing in an area affected by one of these conditions, seek an evaluation by an experienced piercer and a piercing-friendly doctor.
-Can I use any earring or piercing jewely as a replacement?
Please do not use any other material than titanium or real gold! Other material might cause an allergic reaction and/or cause irritation. Might also stain your skin.
-Can I bring my own piercing jewely when I come to get my new piercing pierced?
The answer to this is no, when getting a new piercing we have to use sterilized equipment and jewelry, the piercing also has to be the right material and size for the placement. When getting a new piercing we also have to make sure that you have enough room for potential swelling.
