Getting a piercing is an exciting and personal way to express yourself. Whether it's your first piercing or an addition to your collection, proper preparation is crucial to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience. Let’s talk about some key precautions that you should take to make sure you are ready for your next piercing.
When talking about aftercare, it is important to understand that the method does not heal piercings, it encourages and promotes an optimal environment for our bodies to heal. It is important to find an aftercare spray like Neilmed, which is made with a sterile saline solution, to encourage your piercing to heal and avoid irritation. Neilmed is Isotonic, meaning it is ideal for sensitive skin. Using an aftercare spray with preservatives and harsh chemicals (such as alcohol) can cause skin irritation and prevent proper healing.

Looking after your new piercing is a top priority, especially during the healing process. Different piercings take different amounts of time to heal, so it's important to be aware of what you can expect. From the helix piercing, which takes 6-12 months, to the earlobe piercing, which can take 3-6 months, each piercing requires a specific care routine. Proper cleaning and avoiding activities that could cause irritation, such as twisting the jewellery, are key to a successful healing process. Additionally, it's important to avoid swimming and to keep the area clean to prevent infection. If you experience any signs of infection like redness, swelling, or extreme pain, make sure to seek help from a professional.

In this blog, we explore the relationship between skin tone and jewelry, and how it can impact the way a piece of jewelry looks on a person. We first provide tips on how to determine your skin tone, based on hair and eye color, skin sensitivity to the sun, and wrist veins. If you have a cool skin tone, silver and white gold are great choices, while warm skin tones pair well with yellow gold.
We also introduce the newer metal, rose gold, which is a mixture of copper and gold. Rose gold is versatile and compliments most skin tones, but it is not recommended for those with fair skin and red undertones. If you are unsure, try mixing and matching different metals for a unique and stylish look. Whether worn on its own or with gold, rose gold makes a contemporary statement.

Breastfeeding with pierced nipples is possible in most cases, but complications may arise depending on the position of the piercing. To prevent issues, it's recommended to remove jewellery before breastfeeding and talk to a doctor or midwife. Avoiding infections and avoiding the risk of choking for your baby by keeping the jewellery out is essential
Ear stretching has been a part of tribal cultures for centuries and is now becoming a mainstream fashion trend. It involves enlarging a body piercing to accommodate larger pieces of jewelry and is a slow process that should be done with care to avoid tearing, bleeding, and infection. Preconditioning for ear stretching is simply healed ear piercings and using tapers is one safe method. Eagerness should be put on hold and it is recommended to wait six weeks between stretches. Using good quality jewellery, such as titanium or steel, and properly cleaning your stretched lobes will ensure a healthy and successful ear stretching experience.
