Dear Guest, 

I wanna Thank You for choosing Sink or Swim Tattoos!

We appreciate You and Your continued Support.


Now first things first:

Some body parts heal faster than others will and that’s okay!

As long as You’re comfortable and you’re piercing(s) are comfy throughout this healing process. 


So, let's chat about Ear Piercings!

These guys tend to be a bit angry the first week or so of having it done, at this time there should be Absolutely No Touching, Spinning/Turning, or Being Played With!

Your body needs time to heal or you may cause irritation bumps, hypertrophic scarring, or even the dreaded Keloid!

Using Saline Solution (Neilmed) is a miracle worker when it comes to keeping fresh/angry piercings clean and calm. Keeping pressure off the area is also key!

An Airplane pillows work wonders while you're sleeping and honestly just staying away from anything that will cause pressure to this area for the first 4 weeks will be the most beneficial. 

Just like most Facial & Body Piercings, Ears love to swell!

So when they do, it’s up to you to keep them clean and calm to ensure they can come down swiftly & safely.

Using Sterile Ice packs or cold water sometimes does the trick when you’ve bumped into your healing piercing or snagged it by accident, but the Initial swelling should be Left Alone (meaning right after being pierced no ice just Saline sprays) 


Body Piercings and More Intermediate Piercings need a little different love and support through the healing process, Saline Solution is definitely still #1, but as for sleeping and pressing it’s not the biggest deal, unlike the ears, you can certainly sleep normal as long as your sheets and blankets are clean; you’ll find a comfy way to enjoy your slumber all on your own.

We're always here if You have any questions and or concerns though. Just reach out here or on social media with any concerns. 


So, The materials You will Need to Heal Your fresh and existing piercings are: 

-Saline Solution 

-Clean bedding and Clothes 

-Airplane Pillow (for Ear piercings)

-(Potentially) Sterile Ice packs 

And lots of Patience! 


As for The “Intermediate Piercings” like Surface/Dermal Anchors & Genital Work Please Ask Me if You have any Questions or even Concerns!
