Piercing

Congratulations on your new piercing! Your service occurred in an environment that meets the standards set forth by the Association Of Professional Piercers. The Association of Professional Piercers is a California-based, international nonprofit organization dedicated to the dissemination of vital health and safety information about body piercing to piercers, health care professionals, legislators, and the general public. Your piercing was performed by a member of the Association Of Professional Piercers. This means you can be assured that your experience was in the cleanest environment possible, with someone trained in the most up-to-date aseptic techniques, using body jewelry of uncompromising quality.

A couple of things to remember. Your personal environment and habits can affect your new piercing. Change bedding regularly and be sure nothing comes in contact with your piercing. Maintain a constant and consistent cleaning routine. Remember that a healthy person has a far better chance of having a healthy piercing, so drink plenty of water and eat a healthy well balanced diet.

Jewelry made specifically for you, something you helped to create, or being pierced solely with gold jewelry are all options we are happy to accommodate.
