Ear Piercing Aftercare

Caring for your new piercing is very important in order to maintain the perfect piercing.

Most of the problems that happen after piercing are because of poor aftercare. To avoid any issues, please follow our aftercare guidelines.

Included in your Ear Piercing Starter Kit, you will receive a bottle of Ear Care Lotion. This gentle lotion has been specially formulated to help soothe your newly pierced ears without stinging, burning or irritating.

Following the simple after care steps below is one of the most important parts of your Ear Piercing experience. A copy of the Aftercare Guide will be given to you when you complete your piercing. Here are a few simple steps to follow.


  • Wash your hands very well before touching your newly pierced ears and earrings
  • Clean the front and back of your piercing at least three times a day
  • Use a generous amount of the lotion on a cotton wool pad; make sure you get in between the earring and ear lobe
  • The twist! Holding the front of the earring, make sure that you turn your earrings half turns each way, two to three times per day. This will help with healing and avoid potential problems. This should be only done when cleaning the ears


  • Remove the butterfly or earring back during cleaning
  • Push the butterfly back on too far. The tip of the post should be covered and secured in the safety notch

Always try to keep your new ear piercing free from soap, perfume and hair products. Rinsing your ears after a bath or shower will keep ears clean and earrings sparkly.

Avoid swimming for 24 hours after your piercing and after that make sure you clean your ears with your cleaning lotion after swimming.

Be careful when brushing your hair, exercising or sports, talking on your phone, sleeping or wearing headphones.

A new piercing is so exciting, and we know you will be keen to try out new styles soon. It is really important that you give your ears time to heal before changing your ear piercing.

With a standard aftercare lotion it is usually necessary to wait 6-8 weeks before changing your earrings.

Straight after piercing it is normal for the area to feel hot and maybe a little sore.

If, however, after 24 hours you have any swelling, redness or find the piercing painful, please seek medical advice immediately without removing your ear piercing.
