Anonymous asked: Is smoking cigarettes bad when you have freshly done oral piercings?
Yes, smoking causes a number of issues in regards to wound healing. I mean, it gives people cancer and kills them. What do you expect when you saturate a healing piercing with those toxins? Expect longer healing times, increased soreness, greater amounts of swelling, redness, and discharge.
And no, rinsing with mouthwash after a cigarette will not cancel out the negative effects of smoking.
The documented effects of the toxic constituents of cigarette smoke—particularly nicotine, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen cyanide—suggest potential mechanisms by which smoking may undermine expeditious wound repair.

Brittany stopped in for a conch piercing.
We had done a triple conch piercing on her a year ago, but sadly she had to take them out. So it was pretty nice to not only give her another conch piercing since she’d missed it so much, but to also put this gorgeous anatometal CZ cluster in.
It looks perfect in her conch, thank you so much Brittany!
@mamablackbird, an Evolved favorite for quite some years now, stopped by the studio a little bit ago and left with some added spice in her pre-existing piercings.
The insanely blingy slammer in her philtrum is a custom rose gold “Rose” from our partners in crime at @BVLA. Featuring the unparalleled prismatic intensity of a rainbow moonstone cabochon surrounded by killer CZs from @official_swarovski, this piece is certainly a head turner.
Dust that all off with a pair of seamless rings in a nostril (one rose gold, one steel) and we’re left with one super stoked and super spiffy golded-out face!

Love the rose!
She came in for a new nose She came in for a new nose ring, and left with a little something unexpected: A 14k white gold Dahlia ring for her nostril, and a new daith piercing with as stunning white gold Janessca ring to match. Everyone was just swooning for #BVLA today!
Love the Janesca!
