For Tattoos
Procedure Type: Tattoo
Approximate Healing Time: Two to four (2-4) weeks
Supplies Needed: Antibacterial Soap, mild skin lotion
Aftercare Instructions: Keep your new tattoo bandaged for approximately one (1) hour. Then carefully remove bandage and wash entire area with mild soap and hot water. Dry the area, and re-apply lotion. (I.e. Aveeno, Lubriderm nothing scented). Use only a very thin coating and continue to re-apply it five to ten (5-10) times daily for healing period and whenever the tattoo feels dry. Do not re-bandage the tattoo, as it could stick to the bandage and damage can occur.
Additional Considerations: Avoid sunburn, salt or chlorine water, or hot tubs until your tattoo is completely healed. In the event mild scabbing occurs, do not pick at or attempt to “wash off” the scab. Allow it to do so by itself. You may apply a mild skin lotion to keep “flaking” to a minimum. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Liquid Swordz.
For Piercings
Approximate Healing Time
Lip/Labret: Two to six (2-6) months
Earlobe: Four to six (4-6) weeks
Tongue: One to two (1-2) months
Other Piercings: Up to six (6) months
Nostril or eyebrow: Two to three (2-3) months
Ear cartilage: Three to twelve (3-12) months
Genital: Varies from one to twelve (1-12) months
Supplies Needed: Antibacterial soap. For lip/labret or tongue piercings, an antiseptic mouthwash or salt solution (mix 1/8 teaspoon of salt with 8 ounces of warm water) is also needed.
Aftercare Instructions: Wash your hands. Using warm water and a cotton swab, remove any matter that may have dried on the jewelry and around the openings of the piercing.
Next, pour the cleansing agent on the jewelry and piercing, lather it up, and then work the jewelry back and forth at least six (6) times. Leave the cleaning agent in contact with the piercing approximately one (1) minute. Finally rinse the agent off very thoroughly under running water, again working the jewelry back and forth at least six (6) times. Any cleaning agent left on the skin or in the piercings can cause you problems
For lib/labret or tongue piercings, you should rinse your mouth with antiseptic mouthwash or salt solution for 30-60 seconds. Some mouthwashes may need to be diluted with distilled water. Continue the rinses at least four to six (4-6) times a day for six to eight (6-8) weeks.
Additional Consideration:
Genital piercings usually heal without difficulty, but problems arise from not following the “Aftercare Instructions” or becoming too rough, too soon with the piercing. Always wash your hands before touching the new piercing. Every night, remove any crusty matter with cotton swabs and use a salt solution to soak the piercing for ten (10) minutes. Make no oral contact with your new piercing without an appropriate barrier for at least three (3) months. The use of gloves for touching, condoms for intercourse, and the appropriate barriers for oral sex are highly recommended. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Liquid Swordz.
