I don’t have mine done so idk but if anyone of you got nipple piercings please reblog & comment what you used :)
I just used soap and water, I wore a sports bra for the first week to avoid then catching or anything and they healed perfectly 😊
I want to get mien done but I was wondering about the pain ?? ☺️☺️is it bad ?
hi, I did recently and the piercer told me to wash only with soap and water, not alcohol or similar. I did a week ago and is almost healed so the best is soap and water.
Not trying to sound patronizong, but nipple piercings take at least 6 months to heal completrly. The other puncture wound may be healed, but the inner tissue is not.
True story. Mine took the better part of 18 months. And that’s without any rough play.
But does it hurt?
My piercers gave me a bag of sea salt and told me to put 1/4 teaspoon in a cup of warm water, let it sit for a minute, soak a piece of a paper towel in it, and let it rest on your piercings for five minutes. Other than that they sad any body wash is fine around them and that 1 year is the safest to wait for full healing and to change the studs.
Honestly sea salt works better than most things for cleaning and healing (with my lips I used contact/saline solution and it had similar effects). If I miss a day I notice a clear build up of crusty white blood cells around the studs that soap and water don’t clean up as easily.
I had two piercers do mine at the same time to cut down on time and they had great bedside manner, which is the key. The initial puncture is like any shot or needle and after 5 seconds adreniline and endorphins numb any pain. Once’s studs are in you’ll have ckear discomfort for a few days afterwards and as long as you clean them it passes (any signs of infection see your piercer than doctor). There will be swelling but your piercer will give you a stud thats long enough to accomidate for it (once the healing period is clear go back and they’ll see if you can change sizes).
Any stud is terrible about ‘catching’ and I always catch mine on knitted blankets or scarves or bath scrubbers. Just stsy calm and gently unwrap the piercing.
For my nipples I put bandaids over them for these few months of healing (about two months old) because of how sensitive they are (headphone cords are the worst). There is some increased pleasure from them, just fyi, but most pain and discomfort are gone for me and most people I speak too haven’t had it last longer than a month.
If you’re intetested in getting one or want to confirm amything I’ve said, ASK A PIERCER. This is their job; they’ll know.
