Nipple Piercing 101: Everything You Need to Know about Change, Clean Nipple Piercing Aftercare
A new piercing is usually thrilling and entertaining, and with so many options for nipple rings, bars, chains, and accessories available online or in stores, you're undoubtedly wondering when you may switch it out.
Changing from this jewelry is quite acceptable, but you must be well-versed in when it is ideal to do so and how it works.
Here are the steps on how clean your nipple piercing by yourself.
Sanitize your hands, jewelry, and surroundings first. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with antibacterial soap. Warm water and sea salt mixed in a 1:1 ratio should be applied on your new jewelry. Sanitizing your current jewelry before replacing it is an excellent idea as well to prevent infection. This can be accomplished by gently cleaning the piercing region with the same 1:1 mixture of sea salt and warm water using a cotton swab.
Holding your piercing with both hands, turn one end of the bar piercing until the ball comes loose, then remove the ball from the piercing. The piercing can then be taken out by gently tugging it out from there. To prevent losing the jewelry ball, be careful to replace it straight away.
If the jewelry does not pass through right away, gently and calmly rotate and push it until it passes through the other side. To close the puncture, screw the ball back onto the bar.

Like other body piercings, the rule regarding the time to change the piercing remains the same. You should change the piercing only after it has completely healed.
This rule bears the fact that the piercing punctures your flesh and can even cause some injuries to the regions around the nipple.
You will benefit most from your piercing in the future if you are persistent and patient during the healing process.
