    Default Sea Salt Paste...?

    One of my friends asked me a question and I just do not have the answer for it. So I was hoping someone here does.

    Instead of soaking your ear in a thing of hot sea salt water can you use just a bit of hot water and some sea salt and make a sort of paste with it and put it on the piercing? Would it have the same affect as a SSS?

    I had absolutely no idea on how to answer this.
    What I Have:Left ear: Industrial, Rook, Conch, Tragus, Standard lobes
    Right ear: Vertical Industrial, Helix, Standard lobes
    Retired: Second set of lobes, Right Tragus, Right Snug

    What I Want:
    Repierce second set of lobes, tongue web, standard tongue,
    septum, horizontal nipples, hips, among other things...

    Their delicate cheeks will turn to rotting flesh;

    I can't see it working as salt dissolves in water, for the ratio needed for it not to dry out your skin anyway. You can use a compress soaked in sea salt though but it won't be as effective. As mentioned before it's the heat and the soaking actions that are the biggest factors in SSS.

    It'd have entirely the wrong effect - it'd be much too strong and probably sting a lot if the piercing was quite fresh, and would dry out the piercing & your skin. Sea salt soaks should have 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a mug of water.
