When can I go swimming again?

Recommended wait time is 1 week. If swimming anytime during the initial 8 week healing period, we highly recommend rinsing ears with soap & water after each swim. A new piercing, just like a wound, needs to be kept clean and dry. Chlorine from pools and bacteria in oceans, lakes and rivers may cause irritation or contaminate the new piercing and delay healing.
