Proper Placements

 

You've stopped at the right place to handle all of your Piercing and Body Jewelry needs.  Perfection in Piercing is my goal and has been my reputation since 1998, and several thousand happy customers. You won't find a larger selection of Body Jewelry!!

For optimal healing, get pierced when you are healthy and not healing anything else major in your body. If you are pregnant or even nursing, you should not get pierced or tattooed. Don't come drunk or under the influence of any recreational drugs, this only makes it hurt more and can make you more swollen than usual making placement inaccurate. Come in relatively clean, if you just got back into town from camping, you may want shower before letting us get up close and personal!

   REVIEWS

To this day I still have my navel pierced and I still love it the same. I wouldn't trade it for anything....more 

Before I knew what happened I heard my skin pop and looked down to see a needle through my precious little belly button. It hadn't hurt a bit!....more

When I had my navel done I was so nervous I didn't notice the needle going through, but this time I was fine and very aware of it. It didn't hurt in the least....more

 
The following are the standards for body jewelry we use for piercings so you can be certain that you are receiving quality materials of the highest grade.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jewelry: Materials

• Acceptable materials for wear in body piercings include:

·        High quality surgical implant grade stainless steel (specifically 316LVM ASTM F-138)

·        Niobium

·        Titanium (specifically Ti6A4V ELI, ASTM F-136)

·        Solid 14k or 18k white or yellow gold

·        Solid platinum

·        Dense, low-porosity plastic such as Tygon or PTFE

 • Appropriate jewelry has no nicks, scratches, burrs or irregular surfaces that might endanger the tissue
• Safety pins and other household objects are never put into piercings by professional body piercers
• Some piercers use inferior jewelry that contains too much nickel or other irritating alloy resulting in a “metal allergy”, so be sure that any studio you go to can produce their body jewelry "Mill Certs" as proof of compliance!

Taking care of your piercing

The best aftercare will depend on various factors. Each body is unique and every piercing is different. There are a number of things you can do to help your body to heal your piercing. Some of them are:

Keep your hands off the piercing! Dirty (unwashed) hands are the worst enemy for piercings. During the course of a day your hands become covered with germs. If you touch the piercing, even just near the area, you will deposit bacteria at the piercing site, possibly causing an infection.

Eating Correctly: It is a proven fact that if you eat a healthful, balanced diet your body functions better and heals faster. In most cases, taking vitamin C and zinc will promote healing.

Sea Salt: Applying a very mild, warm sea salt water soak (saline) to your piercing may help your body to heal your piercing. It may also reduce the risk of an infection by helping remove bacteria from the area. This is only effective if the area is thoroughly rinsed immediately afterward.

Liquid Soap: It is widely accepted that a mild liquid soap used last in the shower to gently wash the piercing followed by thorough rinsing is suitable for most piercings.  Usually once or twice a day works best; don’t over clean the piercing. Also, don’t use multiple cleaners at the same time. 

NEVER use the following:

Hydrogen Peroxide or Alcohol: Over the years piercing industry professionals have learned that these products are far too strong and cause more problems than they help.

Antibiotic ointments, gels and creams: These products trap dirt and germs inside a piercing and prevent oxygen from reaching the wound. They may work well for cuts and scrapes but are not good for piercings.
