I got mine done 3 days ago. My piercer told me it takes 3 to 6 months to heal. My mom asked about swimming and she said that if i want to get in a pool i should clean after and put on a waterproof bandage for the first month or so. But if you get in a lake or ocean you should be more careful cause they can carry more bacteria.
Actually, its the other way around.
The chemicals in a pool are MUCH more harmful than an ocean. And ocean water is ok because it’s salt water, still have to clean afterwards, but you’re not as susceptible to infection as you would be in a pool.
I wouldn’t advise that you get into a pool until the first 3 months are up
A lake…..I wouldn’t trust it lol depends on the lake I guess
