What can i do in case of an infection ? Who is responsible ?

At CaféInk® we attach a lot of importance to hygiene and make every effort to accompany you throughout your healing. However, when you do a piercing you do not buy a finished product ...

  •  WE perform your piercing in strict hygienic conditions with a sterile and biocompatible jewel, according to the regulations.
  •  YOU do everything necessary to heal by observing the instructions we have given you.

As commonplace as it may seem, a piercing is a wound at high risk of infection and many complications can occur during the healing (budding scarring, keloid, inflammation ...). If you have any doubt, ask us for an advice.

Indeed, we are not responsible for the lack of hygiene or seriousness of some of our customers.
