Body Piercing Tips & Aftercare : How to Clean Navel Piercings

Hi, I'm Tristan McCauley from Lucky 7 Tattoo, and I'm here to show you how to clean a belly piercing The first thing you want to do is get a good antibacterial soap, or an antimicrobial soap

What this does is it just breaks up the bacteria, and helps break up the build up that's going to be around the jewelry What you want to do is just lather up in your hand, take a q-tip, just roll it around like that You want to push from the bottom, and clean the top of it, and you push from the top and clean the bottom of it You want to let that soap sit for about thirty seconds, just so it can sit in and help break up that build up again And just go back around it with a q-tip one more time

Then you want to rinse it really well with a hotor with warm water to make sure you get all the soap off of there And then you want to dry it really well

Leaving the water in there, leaving it wet, can lead to irritation, mildew, infection, some kind of fungus, and that's never good Another thing you can do is use saline solution There's a couple of them You could use H2Ocean, it's good Another one is Blue Wave

Either one is really good Another thing you can use is sea salt You just want to dilute a tablespoon of sea salt to every quarter cup of hot water You just boil the water, mix in the salt, let it dissolve And then you soak it

soak the area for about fifteen minutes a day Basically what that will do is pull out any impurities, and keep it really clean

And that's how you take care of a belly ring
