Body Piercing Healing Times

​Please note these healing times are an approximation only based upon the average healing times experienced by most clients. The rate at which your piercing may heal is affected by a variety of factors – it is nothing to be concerned about if your piercing heals much faster or slower than this guide – please get in touch if you have any queries about your healing piercing.
