Transcripts

Zane Willet: Hi, I am Willet from Tattoo Paradise in Washington D.C. Today, we are talking about tattoo and piercing aftercare. Right now, we are going to talk about what we do after the initial piercing. Of course, obviously, I am wearing gloves you are going to wash your hands before you do anything.

What we recommend, is a mild sea salt soap. When you bathe, preferably use a mild glycerin soap. If you can not find that a little antibacterial soap is okay for the first week. After that go back to your normal soap, saturate your cotton ball or your Q-tip what have you with the saline, clean them on the piercing, removing any debris that may have been built up for cleaning these septum, remove the boogers, that's always fun.

Generally, your piercer should provide some aftercare product, whether it be the common aftercare product which we shall remain nameless or provide you with some non-iodized sea salt. The ratio is about an eighth of a teaspoon to eight ounces of water on your piercing. If your piercer doesn't provide it for you, pretty much any grocery store nowadays carries non iodized sea salt.

Up next, we are going to talk about what to do for keloid.
