Taking care of piercings is not rocket science. It just needs you to devote yourself to it really regularly and to not start neglecting it after three days. Just because you're "healing well" or this is your fifth piercing doesn't mean you can skip caring for a fresh piercing. In addition, you do not need any ointments, powders, backfills. Preparations designed specifically to care for piercings will do you the best service. These are available in our studio. An alternative is a saline solution. We have been piercing at Hell since 2004, so we know for sure what works best and how to take care of a fresh piercing.

In case of problems with piercings, call 775 353 696 on weekdays during the opening hours of the studio. In acute cases, call the Hell Piercing Emergency on Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 to 20.00. The Hell Piercing Emergency line is 702 116 628.

PIERCING CARE

How to care for a new piercing

  • For piercing care, use only the product recommended by the Hell piercers  A possible alternative is also saline solution. How to prepare it is described on the right of this page.

  • Yellow crystals may form around the piercing during healing, which look like rheum. It is a tissue fluid that is part of healing. Do not tear off these crystals. To remove them, spray aftercare on the piercing and after a while carefully wipe with a clean cotton swab.

  • For six weeks, treat (= spray) the piercing 2 times a day with aftercare spray. Use the product even after sports or activities in dusty environments.

  • Do not touch the jewel with dirty hands and do not move the jewelry in the wound.

  • Skip the pool as well as nature swimming for two months.

  • Be careful with the piercing. Beware of plucking (dressing, towel) and unwanted pressure (headphones, sleep).

  • According to the piercer's recommendations, make an appointment in Hell for a check and for possible shortening or replacement of the jewelry.

How to mix saline solution

For piercing care, we have proven aftercare products in Hell. But the saline solution also works. To make it, mix a small pinch of table salt or sea salt into a clean large shot glass filled with lukewarm water (0.5 dl). This solution is a reliable, and at the same time non-aggressive, means for the care of piercings.
