Cleaning Piercings with Q-Tips Pros & Cons by a Piercer S02 EP33
In Season 2 Episode 32, DaVo, a Professional Piercer since 1994, covers the Pros and Cons of using q-tips or cotton tip applicators to clean healing piercings.
I aka DaVo have been a professional body piercer and is 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.
