    On new piercings, none. A sea salt soak and a clean cotton bud should be enough. On healed piercings you can use a mild anti-bacterial soap. I use Tattoo Goo soap on mine, it's anti-microbal as well

    Its a good idea to soap them in the shower avoiding perfumed and antibacterial soaps but other than that sss is best for cleaning!

    Something natural is best so you could treat yourself to something nice from lush or a local health food store.

    If not try the sensitive skin soaps from supermarkets, they're really cheap and perfume free!

    Sorry if im kinda derailing, but can you use soap on fresh tattoos ? I ask this because my sister recently had a tattoo and the guy told her to wash it twice a day with normal soap.
    Current - Left lobe x 2 , Right lobe x 2, Right Pinna, Tongue, Left Scaffold, 2 vertical nipple piercings (yippy) and a rose tattoo on my calf.

    Want -2 Tattoos

    Does anyone know if it's ok to use tea tree oil soap on them?
    I read somewhere that it's really good to use on healing piercings, and I hope they're right cause I've been using it on my healing belly piercing. *yikes*
