One of the biggest mistakes regarding a piercing/piercings is changing initial jewelry out too soon. As tempting as it may be to start blinging out your new piercing - changing it out before it is ready is a bad idea. Sure, many have done so and did not have any issues. However, you are gambling with your aesthetics if you choose to not follow the protocol. Just be patient and it will pay off. If you have an oral piercing in which the initial jewelry is interfering with chewing or causing damage to teeth or gums, then please come see us and we will remedy the issue. Our jewelry changes are free so why not take advantage of this service. Even if the jewelry is purchased elsewhere this offer still stands as long as the piercing is ready for the initial jewelry to be removed. We like to take care of our customers and our piercings.
