Downsizing your jewlery for Tongue, Labret, Lip, or Monroe is recommended within 7 – 10 days after your piercing. Some people might need a longer time due to swelling.  Normally for Tongue, Labret, Lip, or Monroe we pierce with a longer post to allow room for swelling. Once the swelling period is over, we recommend a shorter bar for more comfort and a better appearance.

A KELIOD is and overgrowth of scar tissue that may appear after piercing.  A KELIOD growth is more prominent in people with dark skin tones. KELIODS are not medically dangerous and often require no medical treatment. KELOIDS may be reduced in size by external pressure or surgical removal, however they may grow back (sometimes larger than they were originally). Call your health care provider if new symptoms develop or reduction/removal is desired. (This information was obtained from A.D.A.

Healing time for a new piercing varies from one individual to another. The very type of jewelry and depth of installation, pressure of clothing and one’s daily activities affect healing time. Therefore, aftercare is very important.

Cleanliness during the Healing Process is a MUST! If your piercing was performed properly, and you adequately attend to it, the risk of infection will be greatly minimized. In our experience, we have found that most problems occur because of:

1. Wearing jewelry to which one is allergic or which is of inappropriate material size or design.

2. Handling your piercing with dirty hands.

3. Using inadequate cleaning solutions.

4. Cleaning improperly or over cleaning.

Minor discharge, crusting or redness during the healing process is normal. However, excessive swelling, discharge, redness or rash indicates infection or an allergic reaction to either the cleaning solution or the jewelry itself. Please be aware that removing your jewelry will not necessarily end an infection and may, in fact, worsen the condition by eliminating the passage through which the discharge can travel. Jewelry must be left in place at all times until piercing heals. We recommend you have a professional piercer perform any changes of jewelry in order to minimize the chances of complications. If you experience any healing problems, we would be happy to help in any way we can, so feel free to call or stop by.
