Welcome to Midnight Iguana Tattooing, Inc.
Midnight Iguana was the first Tattoo Studio in Athens. We opened for business in 1989 and are the only studio in town owned and operated by UGA Alumni.

BODY PIERCING AFTERCARE
Here are the DO's
Always wash your hands with antibacterial soap (like Dial) before touching your piercing.
Leave in your initial jewelry throughout the ENTIRE healing period.
Clean your piercing with the antibacterial soap.
(Do not use fingernails, as they harbor bacteria underneath them.)
Rinse jewelry completely.
Pat dry with a disposable paper product.
Here are the DON'Ts
Do not touch piercing with dirty hands or let anyone else touch it with hands or mouth.
Do not use alcohol. It is too drying and does little to clean.
Do not use peroxide. It kills live skin as well as bacteria.
Do not use antibacterial OINTMENTS. They are too clogging.
Do not submerge piercing in contaminated water such as pools, lakes, oceans, or whirlpools for as long as possible while healing.
Do not rotate piercing while it's healing unless washing it with the antibacterial soap.
Do not use tanning beds without covering the piercing.
