The face masks have joined us again. A simple measure against the spread of viruses, but it is not ideal for fresh piercings. High humidity under the masks (as we breath there) and friction against the fabric can complicate the healing. So Hell piercers put their minds to itand identified three „critical areas“. Each of the areas is complicated in a different way but everything has its solution.

We will take care of you for free

In Hell, of course, we offer maximum support to those who have any complication with piercings. So if there are any problems, call the reception at +420 775 353 696 and order a check-in, which is freewith us. On weekends, there is a special Hell emergency line at +420 702 116 628. We are well aware that follow-up care is as important as the correct and sterile conduction of piercing. And in Hell you will get both. But you know that already, right!

piercing under the face mask complications solution
Nose, lips and surroundings (nostril, medusa, chin,..)

septum is ok

high level of humidity

Friction towards the fabric of the face mask

– Take a fresh mask with you and wear it after piercing

– Wear textile face masks without wire around the nose (mask breaths better)

– Change your mask often and wear it only when completely necessary

Ears, especially cartilages (helix, forward helix, conch, lobe atp.) Friction, mechanical irritation – Take a fresh mask with you and wear it after piercing

– Wear face mask tied on the back part of your head, not the one tied behind your ears

microdermals high level of humidity

Friction towards the fabric of the face mask

– Before you arrange an appointment, try to draw the microdermal on your face and put on the mask

– If the microdermal is too close to the edge of the mask and mechanical irritation seems to be possible, better wait for non-mask times

– If everything seems to be ok, take a fresh mask with you to the studio and wear it after piercing

Piercing under the face mask: tips on how to handle it

For piercings under the face mask, really (but really!) do not underestimate aftercare. The care for each piercing is different and our piercers will thoroughly explain it to you on the spot. But for all:

  • – take a clean face mask with you to put it on after the piercing
  • – change your mask often and wear it only when completely necessary
  • do not touchthe fresh piercing
  • – treat piercing at least 3 times a day with Prontolind spray, which speeds up healing (available in Hell for CZK 150)

Hell face masks

Danny, our receptionist, sewed face masks for us, the people of Hell, at first as an anti-covid uniform. Because you started asking for them, we made a competition and they were the prize. And you started wanting them even more. And you have to have them. A mask with Hell logo, or a design one made of snakeskin and vinyl (surprisingly, you can breathe in it – tested), you can get in Hell at the reception.
