Step One Wash and dry your hands thoroughly.Step Two Spray entry and exit sites off your piercing, Do Not over spray as this just wastes product.Step Three Any crustie ‘scabs’ should Not be picked off as this can damage the area and cause a higher infection risk, we recommend rinsing over with a warm clean shower once a day, any crusties that do not rinse away leave alone.Step Four Any foreign matter or fluids should be wiped away with a sterile non-woven gauze, this helps to minimise cross infection.Step Five Self-care, a happy healthy piercing requires a happy healthy body, both physically and emotionally, this best achieved with general cleanliness and a good diet.
All of our aftercare is supplied by Neil med piercing after care. this a specially formulated and designed to be used on piercings. it contains no additives or chemicals and is dermatologically safe.

Martin has done the impossible!...I've been thinking about having a tongue piercing for long years, and finally I had enough courage to go for it. Unfortunately a piercer in London said to me I can't have tongue piercing because of my veins, I have too many... I was so sad, but I decided to ask for a second opinion. I went to the Darkside and Martin said there is no problem with my tongue! So finally I got tongue piercing!! :) I'm very happy! :)One week later there are no complications with my tongue piercing. Everything is fine!Today I went back to Martin and asked for a surface piercing also! :) I love them!This is how I'm spending my 13 days holiday here, got pierced 2 times! :) My memories of Melksham.I'm 100% satisfied with the service! Martin is a professional piercer! I can highly recommend him!

This is a 10 Star experience This has been the best experience I have had. Always in consent contact with me and the piercing was perfect and painless. I cannot recommend Darkside piercing enough. Even when I caught my piercing and lost it. He was straight away out to me no question and that is something you don’t usually experience. Thank you
Rebecca - MelkshamMartin is so professional and kind, he knows his stuff! I was so scared about getting my piercing but he made it (almost) enjoyable.Taken from our 5* reviews on Facebook.
