When I got my tongue pierced, I was told to use mouthwash in the morning, before bed, and after eating or drinking anything but water.

Also, immediately before and after the actual piercing, the piercer had me use the nasty yellow listerine.

I've heard the twisting one. Also, an old woman once told me, after I gave her aftercare, that my advice was nonsense and the best wear to keep her ears clean was to lick her finger and rub it.

Thankfully, I managed to talk sense into her.

Also, the shit piercer I went to before I met my boss had me clean my ears with what was effectively bleach. You want to have seen the scabs and weeping on these bad boys. How they ever settled down is beyond me.

i don't have any idea where i heard it, but i was either told by someone or read somewhere that toothpaste was a good idea to heal piercings because it works so well with pimples... yeah, sure. speaking of "acne care", i also heard/read that such products would be okay to clean piercings/stretched piercings new and fresh, like those real strong clearasil pads and whatnot.

not so much bad advice but recently i had a woman at my local pool supply store tell me that getting the inner conch area of the ear pierced would most definitely make me deaf. i guess she couldn't see that mine are 7/16"(11.1mm) and i could hear her just fine.

i've of course heard the "bleeding and pus is okay when stretching" nonsense from other kids telling other kids about stretching. right now that's all i can think of that hasn't already been said.

HAHAHAHAHAHA i've had a kid who came in with a swollen, bleeding and pus oozing lip. He had pierced his own lip with a sewing needle.
 
Let's up the anti....
He was underage and we turned him down, Pierced it with a non-sterile 8mm 16g CBAR (eyebrow bar) and was using toothpaste as aftercare.

i was talking to a girl in the chemist i noticed she had an infected chest surface piercing i asked her if she needing any advice on how to help it settle down her response was:

"no its ok my bf told me to jsut use listerene  on it twice a day and it would be fine =] he used it on his pa and it worked great^^"

i figured that there was no point me talking sense into her.

i did see her hte other day..
she had some really nice rejection scars

- Rubbing alcohol is a fantastic aftercare method
- Twisting the jewelry stops the skin from adhering to it
- It's alright to skip 2 gauges; I'm a piercer, trust me
- Putting neosporin on my HEALED stretched lobes will make them close up (thanks mom. lulz)
- The burn says it's working (in regards to cleaning your piercing with stingy stuff like seabreeze or alcohol)
- Putting ointment on the piercing

etc.
