bad for your teeth? how is that?

kia already pointed it out, but i have one. i have a slight lisp (more noticeable to me than anyone else) and my barbell seems to have "fixed" it. whenever i take it out i can totally hear my lisp, so now i envision myself leaving it in forever and being like 75 with my tongue pierced.

i'll be the hippest grandma in town!

i dunno it just felt weird when i licked an icecream cone haha, they said its bad cuz it hits the enamel on the back of your teeth, mine was a bit up front i think so kinda close to my teeth, i got it done in like 2002 then redone in 2005. but i dont thnk ill pierce it again.

I used to have my tongue pierced. I got it done when I was 16 I think. I took it out when I was 17 because Jon didn't really like it that much. I wish I wouldn't have, I loved it. Plus now I think he wants me to get it pierced again.

*ahem* yes coke can.

so I was drinking from the can and poking my tongue in the hole to get the last drips out - it was a hot sunny day.

and...

it got caught, not bad but my first reaction was "PANIC OMG my tongue is stuck oh man they'll have to cut the can off and oh it's free again haha oops hope no-one saw me" Embarassed

My only problem was right after I got it done. If I stuck my tongue out for any reason, I would get it caught on my teeth. It hurt like a son of a b*tch.

I really wanna get mine done, but I'm a bit of a wuss.. how much does it hurt? And how long does your tongue stay swollen after it's been pierced? Ahhh I know I had a baby but I had pethidine for that sh*t. Laughing

The worst part for me was the clamp they put on your tongue before they pierce it. That hurt me way worse than the needle getting jabbed through. & the swelling really sucks.. Makes it really hard to talk lol. The swelling for me lasted like a day & a half to 2 days. It's really not that bad. I'd get mine done again if I knew it wouldn't get infected again.

I got mine done sooooo long ago, when they used to use a local anaesthetic on your tongue.
They can't do that now because of the risk of you swallowing your tongue or paralysing your airways Shocked
so in fairness, I didn't feel much.

It was swollen for about 2 days but it took me a few weeks to learn how to run my tongue around my teeth lol

I hated the larger bar (they put a long one in to compensate for swellin) and I used to catch that btween my back teeth when I was chewing food Shocked

but since I had the smaller bar in I love it and I too will be a pierced oap lmao

Speaking of the large bar... A long time after I changed it to a smaller one I put that one back in just to see how different it felt. I could barely close my mouth!! I don't know how it fit in there in the first place.

I Had it done since I was 15. Baron *Hated* it!!!! So I took it out for 2 years. Then I put it back.

I got .veneers and decided to choose my teeth over a ring.

I would constantly bite it and crack the plastic ones and hurt my teeth with the metal ones. it sucked!

Re: Tongue Piercing
I had mine done for awhile but then after a few months of having it, it got kinda sore and when I took it out to change the ring, it closed up. Omg, I was so freaking mad!! So I hope to get it repierced again but I don't know if I can until the ball in my tongue has disappeared.

You can't notice I have it.no one notices until they see somethingshiny all of a sudden or if I yawn!
