Wash your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason.
It is not necessary to rotate the jewelry through the piercing.
Once a day, we recommend using a cold compress with the saline spray we carry and a non woven gauze pad. This may be done by soaking a section of the non woven gauze pad with the saline spray solution and applying it directly onto your piercing. Let it soak over the entire area for 10 minutes. This will help break up any debris.
A brief rinse afterward will remove any residue. (Please do not use sink water.)
Dry by gently patting with clean, disposable paper products because cloth towels can harbor bacteria and snag on jewelry, causing injury.
Spraying the area with the solution may also be done, however the cold compress releases debris faster, and helps with the overall Aftercare process at a higher success rate.
A q-tip should never be used on your piercings because cotton fibers are the kryptonite of successful healing for a piercing.

HINTS AND TIPS
EAR/EAR CARTILAGE AND FACIAL:
---EAR LOBES + EYEBROW---
Wash your hands prior to touching the piercing; leave it alone except when cleaning. During healing it is not necessary to rotate your jewelry. Excessive touching will lengthen your healing period. Use running shower water to flush your piercing during cleaning. There is no reason to remove jewelry during cleaning. Only remove jewelry when you will be replacing it with another.
---- CARTiLAGE / NOSTRiL / CONCH / DAiTH / TRAGUS / ROOK / HELiX / SEPTUM -----
Cartilage is a connective tissue with very poor blood supply. This means that it will take longer to heal than “soft” tissue. Clean this piercing no more than 2 times/day as it can become dry and irritated. On average it can take 6 months - 1 year to heal. You must clean this piercing religiously as it can turn on a dime and a small bump may form. If you get a small bump (like a pimple) do not worry. Most likely a foreign substance/dirt may have found a way in. Simply keep cleaning it. Exercise caution when styling your hair!
---LiP (Labret) ----
During the first 72 hours - swelling will be apparent. The first week is very important: Avoid eating spicy/acidic foods, exchanging body fluids, and drinking alcohol. Also, DO NOT suck on hard candy, a straw, or smoke! This may cause pressure inside your mouth and rupture ‘healing’ tissue. Rinse with non-alcoholic mouthwash after every meal.
Feel free to come by anytime during our Open business hours for an Aftercare Consult.
No Appointment needed.
This way we are able to check your piercings and see if they are ready for a downsize. We often recommend waiting at least 4-6 weeks for lobe and lip piercings and 4-8 weeks for helix piercings to ensure the piercing area has enough time to heal properly.
If at that point we discover they are ready for a downsize, we will try our best to help during that check-up.
However, if you already know that you will need help with insertions/removals with jewelry from one of our vendors, or post backing downsizing we recommend a “JuLry Shopping” Appointment that is readily available Wednesday-Monday and can be scheduled on our Website https://julhead.com/appointments-1
no, we do not pierce minors altogether. Only adults 18+
this deposit is used to secure the designated time frame + receive the services you require. The deposit will serve as a credit toward your final total. However, do not fret - it is not forfeited unless a client violates our Appointment Policy. For example: Cancellation before 24 hour window period, tardiness beyond 10 minutes, or no-show. It works as follows: Client A decides to get a Pair of Lobe piercings with our simple starter studs at $80, each. Their total comes out to $160+tax. The client’s deposit then credits to bring the total down. Client B decides on a pair of starter studs for Lobes, and show piece for their Helix - total varies depending on JuLry price only + tax. Final total will subtract their $ deposit. Basically, it's a promise that the client will show. After all, nobody likes being stood up 🤷♂️
we understand that sometimes "life" can spring out of nowhere and may prevent your ability to attend your appointment. However, due to the nature of our "Appointment Only" services without sufficient time to cancel - we would be unable to set up a new service for another person. This is why we implore that each client be a serious request. Our time is equally as valuable, and our staff's needs are also important. Operating costs are real, and our staff must also be taken care of. Thank you for understanding
in short..no. Many times jewelry that one buys from a store may not be suitable for initial piercings. In order for us to pierce you we must know exactly the type of material, company, and mill certifications. We feel most comfortable using, and will only use, pieces purchased directly from us in the past or during a future visit and from companies we currently carry (BVLA, Modern Mood, Pupil.Hall, Junipurr, Body Gems, Norvoch, Quetzalli, Regalia, LeRoi).
Also, many times jewelry is hand made, and may break during the sterilization process. We would be heartbroken if we were to damage a piece that has sentimental value.
we recommend waiting two months before your first JuLry swap. Please ensure that JuLry is always in the piercing, or it will close. It is always better to have a professional help you the first time so that they can give you some helpful tips and tricks on how to get comfortable with changing it on your own in the future. When it comes to changing your JuLry to a ring for the first time, we recommend a six month wait. "Did they say six months?!?!" we know that sounds like a long time, but we want to make sure that your piercing is well healed before making the transition to a ring.

We are still by Appointment for Piercings, however walk-ins are always welcome whenever available.
No Appointment is needed for JuLry shopping, or post backing downsizing, although a "JuLry Shopping" Appointment is recommended. We take walk-ins whenever available.
If you would like to browse our JuLry selection and come in for a visit, please feel free to walk-in anytime.
Appointments are not required to simply come into the studio.
NO! It is a very good idea to avoid communal bodies of water for one month after getting a new piercing done. That includes lakes, oceans, swimming pools, hot tubs and saunas.
often times one can mistake an infection with irritation. Infections can only be diagnosed by a doctor and must be addressed properly, and they tend to be excruciating with a fever.
Irritation can appear as skin redness or a small bump. Seldom a slight discharge. If you are concerned with the healing of your piercing you are welcome to come in so we can take a look. Do not remove the JuLry if you feel you have an infection as it may encapsulate bacteria and make it worse.
we are always happy to answer any and all questions piercing related! Please don't hesitate to send us a message so we can help answer all your burning questions regarding safe piercing practices!
we understand that receiving a piercing can be stressful, and little bit intimidating. A telephone ringing tends to be a "trigger" for many and bubbles a tense feeling in the tummy. Also, it's always a great way to interrupt a good thing goin'. In order to help provide a comfortable environment we encourage everyone to send us a message so that we can help our clients with as little interruptions as possible.
