10 Hints to Faster Healing Piercings Body Piercing Basics EP 19

In the 19th Episode of Body Piercing Basic,  DaVo goes through 11 hints on how to improve and speed up the healing of your piercing. Often the discussion of being healthy during the healing process isn't discussed and this covers a few things that your piercer wouldn't always mention when they give you aftercare instructions. DaVo, a Professional Piercer since 1994, goes in depth into the subject of piercing ethics and what you should consider when a piercer says they won't do something.

This video is designed for those new to Body Piercing and as an educational introduction. You should always consult a professional piercer or medical profession before getting any piercing or embarking on a piercing procedure. One of the concepts behind this series is to give the average person the ability to have an educated conversation about the piercing will be done with their piercer.

I aka DaVo have been a professional body piercer and the owner of the Axiom Body Piercing Studio in Des Moines, Iowa since 1994. My focus on education and helping clients make safe and informed decisions on getting pierced has always been a large part of my business practices and services. With my website and increasingly on youtube, I hope to expand and inform others outside of my small part of the world. I always encourage questions and comments, so if you have one, please comment.
