If you went to a body piercing shop and received a new tattoo, you are likely feeling very excited and happy about your new body piercing. However, it is going to be very important that you take good care of this body piercing. It is an actual hole that has been created in your body, and it needs to be treated as such.
There are several things that you can do to ensure that your new body piercing heals completely and that your piercing stays looking good. This article is going to discuss 2 tips for caring for your new body piercing.
Clean it with Saline
Since your body piercing is an opening in your body, it is going to be very important that you keep it clean as it heals. The professional who gave you your piercing is likely going to suggest that you clean it with a saline solution. This is going to be a salty solution that is going to help kill any bacteria that are trying to grow. The saline solution isn't going to be incredibly painful on your piercing either, which is something that most people find very important.
To clean it with the saline solution, you are going to want to apply it to a cotton ball and then carefully dab it on the area where the piercing is. You will likely need to do this several times each day, and it may even be recommended that you keep the saline covered cotton ball on the piercing for an extended period of time.
Avoid Baths Initially
It is also going to be in your best interest to shower the first week or so after getting a piercing, rather than taking a bath. When you take a bath, you are going to be laying in the same water the entire time, this is going to make it more prone to gathering bacteria. This bacteria can then get into the opening in your body where the piercing is, causing it to become infected. Also, the soap and other cleaners are just going to sit in the water when you bath, and could cause your piercing to become irritated.
Showers on the other hand are going to pour a fresh stream of new water onto your piercing, thus allowing it to stay nice and clean during your shower. Once your piercing has completely healed, it is going to be fine for your to resume bathing once again.

My name is Melinda Franklin, and I want to thank you for visiting my website. My husband Joseph is an executive in the firm where he works. This means we have three to five annual formal affairs to attend. I will be the first to admit that I’m not the most fashion savvy person. For years, I would find and wear what I thought was the perfect evening gown for each event, yet never felt quite as lovely as I thought I should. I would admire the other women and wonder why I didn’t feel as stunning as they looked. Then it finally dawned on me --it was my lack of accessories. The other women wore earrings and necklaces that completed their outfits. I haphazardly put on jewelry and accessories that I knew were mundane. I would like to share some accessorizing tips I’m using now.
