tongue piercing

OK so a few of you may have had the pleasure of reading my thread about when i had my old fella pierced
http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/Betting-mates-How-far-do-you-take-it-m3450522.aspx
 
Anyways, seems ie started thinking about getting my tongue done, no idea why ive never been a piercing kind of person.
 
So, anybody had it done, does it hurt, and how are you affected afterwards regading speech eating etc?

    I was with a girl who had her tongue pierced.... i loved it btw..

    She said it didnt hurt and was done really quickly, she had a massive bar in at first though so her speech was a little messed up, but as soon as she put a smaller one in it was all good.  There was a little tongue swelling too..

    Cant be as painful as having the old boy done!!!!!

    Drilling holes in yourself and sticking metal bars through is, in my considered opinion, a very dubious pastime. If it doesn't hurt, it should, if it does hurt, it should hurt more.

    Why would you do such a foolish thing.

    Doesn't it chip tooth enamal

    I know lots of people who have it.....
     
     They all said it's not as painful as they imagined.....Healing time was quite fast,but aftercare has to be perfect!!....You'll know about it if you get an infection.

     Yes,it can chip tooth enamel......Correctly fitted jewellrey is important.

    it doesnt hurt at all mate, make sure u go to a reputable place though...the first time i got it done about 14 years ago they just rammed it through..ended up taking it out as it was too far forward and was catching on my teeth. this time when i got it done they shone a torch through my tongue to check that they werent going to hit a vein. Takes about 2 weeks to heal initially, they put a large bar in to allow for swelling, then you should get it changed (for free) to the bar that fits properly. They say to only eat soup and soft foods for a week, but bollox to that, i was eating chicken and brown rice a couple of hours after! Dental hygiene is the key to getting ur tongue to heal safely..if ur on facebook let me know..got a vid of my kid bro gettin his pierced that you can watch :)

    Missus wants this doing but I'm afraid she'll end up with a speech impediment like the few I know who've had it done. :(

    Its one of the riskiest piercings you can get,if you look under your tongue you have two purple/blue lines which are arteries,if you nick one of those your in trouble,also the chance of nerve damage,swelling and a higher chance of infection.

    If your going to get it done make sure its from a reputable piercer,bbpa have a website that lists approved piercers.

    A bloke can do a lot with his tongue!!!!!
     
    I've got a tongue piercing, had it 10 years in November, so here is the low-down;
     
    It only hurts when the needle gets to the middle part of the tongue but stay still and any decent piercer will have it over very quick.
     
    Your mouth is actually the most sterile place on your body and saliva contains natural antibodies.
     
    It will swell, suck ice cubes and use salt-water mouthwash daily. Protein shakes, MRPs and ice cream will be your diet for 2-3 days. 
     
    A special long bar will be used initially, then once the swelling goes down you can move onto a shorter permanent fixture. When you do make sure the balls are screwed tight - I lost mine a few times, once woke up and the bottom ball was missing presumed swallowe. So wash and dry hands, then grab them balls and tighten as far as possible. This also makes it impossible for the forces to remove too - as below!
     
    DO NOT put  your tongue on anyone elses body or in their mouth for 6 weeks. As above you have antibodies in your saliva but only for your own bacterium - will not protect against another persons random flora.
     
    Dentist will have a fit, I've been told it's weakening my teeth - but mine is quite far back and hardly touches my them. Reality is in 10 years I've 'crunched' on it twice - both times removing small bits from my mollars, not bad enough for fillings though so I reckon that's not bad for that length of time.
     
    I've had navel, lip and tongue piercings (don't wear the lip one any more) and I will say the tongue was the easiest as well as quickest to heal. I suspect that's because it's quite protected in your mouth - as well as the saliva issue.
     
    A good tongue piercing is very good - most folk don't see it until you laugh, yawn or do something very sexy. I like mine since I'm a demure type these days, yet I have this hidden away!
     
    Enjoy.
     
    ps if you ever get arrested by the police do not let on - they will want you to take it out and may try and put their hands in your mouth.

    I most certainly do not! And I don't have a lisp. I keep my piercing rather private.
