TATTOO & BODY PIERCING

EST. 1997

            PIERCING CARE INSTRUCTIONS

 • Never touch a new piercing with unwashed hands.

 • Clean your piercing in the morning and before bed  with a fragrance free ANTIBACTERIAL soap. 

 • At least once a day, soak your piercing in a saline  solution of 1/4 tsp. non-iodized sea salt to 8oz. of warm water.

 • Gently remove any excretions of crusty buildup  from the surface before rotating jewelry.

 • DO NOT remove the jewelry during the healing  process. NAVEL PIERCING

 • Tight fitting clothes will severely irritate a new  piercing. Expect redness around the piercing for  about 4 weeks.

 EYEBROW AND EARS

 • Careless use of combs and brushes can result in  ripping and tearing.
 Be aware, telephones need to be cleaned before  use.

 ORAL PIERCINGS

 • It is not unusual for an oral piercing to swell for 3-5  days. Rinse your mouth 4-6 times daily using the  saline solution listed above.
 • Rinse after eating, smoking, and using chewing  tobacco.

 • We recommend ice chips and frozen drinks to  help reduce swelling.

 • Liquor of any kind will induce swelling.
 • Spicy and/or salty foods may cause irritation.
 • Piercings around the mouth should be cleaned  with anti-bacterial soap twice a day.

 CAUTION
 • NEGLIGENCE AND ABUSE ARE THE COMMON  CAUSE OF INFECTION.
 • Do not allow anyone to put your new piercing in  their mouth during healing.
 • We recommend staying away from hot tubs and  pools during healing.
 • At first sign of infection, allergies, or an adverse  reaction from your piercing, contact Mile High  Tattoo.  
 •Some signs of infections are: extensive redness,  swelling, pain, green drainage, and odor.


                     ​​TATTOO INSTRUCTIONS

   • Leave the bandage on for at least three, and up  to twelve hours. If the bandage sticks to the tattoo  upon removal, wet the area with lukewarm water  and slide the bandage off.  Do not reapply the  bandage.  

 • Wash the area gently with mild, fragrance-free  soap and water.  Do this using clean hands  and  make sure to remove all excess ointment, blood  and  ink.  Pat Dry with a clean towel. DO NOT  SCRUB!

 • Wash your tattoo two to three times a day ONLY.    After washing allow the skin to dry and apply a  VERY thin layer of Aquaphor ointment for three  days 


 • On the fourth day, apply a mild, fragrance-free  moisturizing lotion until the tattoo settles into the  skin.  This typically takes three to four weeks.

 • Expect to see your tattoo peel and flake.  This is a  normal part of the healing process.

 • It is normal for your healing tattoo to itch, but it is  very important NOT TO SCRATCH OR PICK  YOUR  TATTOO!
