hmm guys what would the pros and cons be to getting my tongue pierced lol i really wanna get it done but last time i got a piercing i nearly fainted heh im scared...
Pros: looks good, fun to have something in your mouth to play with :rolleyes: and yes you'll temporarily be fashionable lol. but i wouldnt say get it purely as a fashion statement because to be honest theres plenty other ways to make a fashion statement. hang on i had another pro... ah yes, its something a bit more subtle piercings wise; not as 'look at me i have a piercing' as other things you could do which i kind of like about it.

Cons: the only major one that i can think of is that when you first get it done itll be about 3 days - a week before u can eat solid foods again (depending on how quickly you heal) and it can be a bit painful if u move it about a bit at first unintentionally. other ones are i guess going for job interviews, if they notice it in the first place might hold it against you for watever reason (even tho to be honest they shouldnt). as with ANYTHING there is the risk of infection.

infection wise tho, if u look after it properly theres no reason why it should get infected. saliva apparently has magical healing properties and the tongue has loads of blood vessels going through it so itll heal up pretty fast either way.
making a hole through ur tongue - you can just take it out if u dont want it. and it heals up really fast. i no someone who had it done for like 6 months/a year im not sure, took it out overnight and by the morning it had healed up. as long as u dont stretch it out theres no reason why you'd be left with a permanent hole in ur tongue if u ever decide to take it out.

pain wise, the only pain is while its healing and u try and eat anything that knocks it about. the actual sticking the needle through your tongue doesnt hurt. seriously.

check out like loads of other people have said bmezine for loads of other peoples experiences etc....

feel free to ask questions theres quite a few of us on here that can answer for u

Make sure you eat/drink something with lots of glucose in, like a mars bar or lucozade. I normally buy a king size mars bar and have half before and half after, but you wont be able to eat.

i'll see if i can get a pic. it kinda hurt, but not too much, and i talked like an idiot for a couple days. it was sore for a few days but ive had no trouble w it except for changing the ring (because its pretty thick).

anyone know if i could get my tongue done normally as well?

If you've got a good piercer, they'll know where it is and how to pierce you to miss it. But if you go to a dodgy one...

Check out reviews on BME(you can select experiences by place on body and location), and just generally trust your instincts.And check they're clean too, and wear gloves etc

thats good, not too warm though eh

and i'll have ice, cold drinks etc that'll help right?

i should be getting it sometime this week as im off college.. got a trip to London planned wednesday though so if i were to get it done tomorrow would it be hurting too much on wednesday or would it be ok? cos i rang a mate up earlier and he said i should get it done after the London trip..

I'd say don't get it done til you've done a lot more research. They will give you an aftercare sheet, but you don't seem to know what you're getting into. Basically, just go and read everything you can so that you know a lot more
