The third and arguably most important thing is the quality of jewelry. Metal is not Inert! It is always releasing the by product of itself !

To your skin has a blueish greenish tattoo mark . The amount of scaring you have realies of many variables but most important is .. your bodies healing abilities, the acceptance of the foreign object in your body (quality of metal and polish), and the piercers technique, as well as it not getting caught on anything.

Taking care of a new piercing is very simple. Do not touch it with dirty hands, no swimming for four weeks. Try to ensure that it does not get bumped or caught on anything, such as tight clothing. Spray every four hours the first week, every six hours the second week, every twelve hours the third week, and once a day the fourth week. Use H2Ocean(tm), using the smallest amount of H20cean(tm) possible, allow to dry on skin. We recommend you don't change most piercings for eight weeks.
If piercing becomes itchy or irritated, go back to spraying 6 times a day and start process over.
