Maddie began her apprenticeship eighth months ago under Kramer Heckart. She has been spending much of her free time studying anatomy and has taken a great personal interest in metallurgy. Her inspirations are some the most innovative piercers in the industry, they all share the common goal of safety for the client above everything else. Maddie has taken to this school of thought with such vigor, she personally insures every piercing related item that passes through sterile processing is checked, dated, and properly sterilized even to the point of staying after hours to do so. She is currently piercing nostrils and some parts of the ear under supervision. Kramer has high hopes for Maddie “…she shows a true passion for the art and science of modification, she is not just piercing to pay the bills or because its cool.” In the following months Maddie will begin to do more complicated piercings and hone her skills. When asked about her goals Maddie has said what is first in her mind is to “ survive an apprenticeship”. Maddie has formed an deep passion for suspensions and other ritual piercings, being suspend for her first time earlier this year and sense then has attended many others and helped many of the suspension practitioners and its participants
Remove bandage within a few hours and wash with warm water and soap. Pat dry with a clean paper towel and apply a thin layer of A&D or similar. Remove any excess with a clean, dry paper towel.
Wash tattoo twice daily while healing and use a thin layer of A&D ointment or Aquafor as needed to prevent dryness. It is fine to wash in the shower or tub, but do no allow the area to soak.
Do not pick or scratch any scabbing, allow it to come off on its own. Scabbing usually flakes off in 7-10 days. Keep clean and continue to use A&D or fragrance-free lotion until healed. Wear clean, loose clothing to protect tattoo while healing.
DO NOT expose healing tattoo to direct sun, swimming or public water, hot tub, unclean conditions, irritating clothing, or anything else that may hinder healing.
Once tattoo is healed, use high SPF sunblock when exposed to direct sunlight. Try to avoid exposing your tattoo to direct sunlight for long periods of time.
