The Importance of Downsizing
Most piercings are started with jewelry that is a little longer to accommodate for both cleaning and swelling. Once the swelling has subsided, please visit AET Tattoo and Piercing Studio for a follow up consultation. We typically recommend that you visit 4 to 6 weeks after your piercing. If your piercing is slept on or otherwise irritated, it can cause a permanent distortion in the angle of the piercing. Downsizing your jewelry in a manner can prevent the distortion from happening.
Jewelry fees do apply when downsizing.
