8/13/2022: We are requiring masks in the studio. We are open for walk-ins for jewelry shopping and installs. For more info click here.

 

Professional Facial Piercings

  • We are requiring masks in the studio and appointments.
  • Facial piercings generally include the nose, eyebrow, and upper cheek (anti-eyebrow) areas.
  • Nostril piercings take up to 6 months to heal on the outside and up to 2 years to heal completely.
  • “The less you do, the better off you’ll be.” Overzealous and aggressive cleaning of nostril piercings will ruin the aesthetic with visible scarring.
  • Changing or adjusting nostril piercings shouldn’t be attempted until after the six-month mark, unless shortening an existing post.
  • Keep pillowcases clean and avoid sleeping directly on new piercings during the healing stage.
  • The cheapest jewelry can call itself hypoallergenic. Remember that is NOT the same thing as implant grade.

Additional Facts & Tips

All About Nostril Piercings

  • Types of nose piercings include the Nostril, High Nostril, Forward Facing Nostril, Nasallang, Septum, Septril, Rhino, and Bridge.
  • Nostril takes the longest to heal completely of most types of piercings, up to two years. However, you can downsize your nostril jewelry after three months. We recommend waiting at least 6-9 months before changing the jewelry to a different style such as a hoop.
  • For this piercing we say, “The less you do, the better off you’ll be.”

All About Eyebrow Piercings

  • The recommended jewelry for eyebrow piercings are curved barbells.
  • They can be horizontal to the brow, cross the brow vertically, or rest above the cheekbone just below or adjacent to the eye (anti-eyebrow).
  • These piercings take six months to one year to heal.
  • Be careful when using facial cleansers and rinse thoroughly.

Choose Initial Jewelry You’ll Love

  • Body adornment and modification is one of the boldest ways we get to express ourselves.
  • Treat yourself to jewelry you know you’re going to love for the length of the healing process which can be anywhere from 6 months to 2+ years!
  • There’s an overwhelming selection of incredible jewelry out there, but resist the temptation to change yours out too soon.
  • The longer you wear the implant-grade jewelry, the better.
  • Our threadless style jewelry has interchangeable tops and that means if you get bored with your current piece, you can get a new top but keep your post in your piercing.

What to avoid?

  • No externally threaded jewelry, as the ends going through the piercing channel are scraped along the rigid edges of that type of jewelry.
  • Wearing jewelry that contains nickel/silver is one of the leading reasons that the body has a hard time healing a piercing.
  • Most people are allergic to it and what can manifest as an extreme infection is often catalyzed by an allergic reaction first but then never go away until sooner or later, the recipient gets tired and removes the piercing.
  • At Koi we use the best quality materials for our piercings, such as Implant Grade Titanium, Implant Grade Stainless Steel, or 14k solid Rose, Yellow, or White Gold. All of the jewelry we carry is held to standard and show proof of material with the mill certificates we carry per brand. If you have any questions, please ask!
