Ready to get a Medusa piercing? Use our store locator to
find your local Blue Banana Studio. There’s no need to book an appointment; you
can simply go to the store of your choice and be pierced on the day.
Make sure to check the Medusa piercing age restriction
before coming to store. It can help to avoid any undue disappointment. In a
Blue Banana studio, the Medusa piercing age restriction is 16 (ID may be
required). Lip piercings are not available with parental consent.
Once you’re all booked in, you will have some forms to fill
out. A member of Blue Banana staff will go through the steps and can help you
pick out jewellery. Then you can meet the piercer! They too will give you a
quick consultation and briefing before discussing the Medusa piercing location.
A Medusa piercing can take 2-3 months to fully heal. The
exact healing time varies from person to person and will need top aftercare to
ensure successful healing.
After the initial piercing, your lip is likely to swell and
can be quite sore. During the healing process, you should avoid spicy and
sticky foods, including chewing gum as this can get caught around your piercing
jewellery. During healing, avoid smoking, alcohol, and kissing as this may
introduce unwanted bacteria into your piercing wound.
There are two different types of cleaning you will need to
do for your Medusa piercing. When cleaning the inside of your Medusa piercing,
swill a saltwater solution around your mouth twice a day. Ensure there is no
food stuck around your piercing, regularly use mouthwash to maintain good oral
hygiene, and try to avoid touching your piercing while it heals. When cleaning
the outside of the piercing, use a saltwater solution or Tea Tree Oil to gently
bathe the piercing twice a day.
