I have had my tongue pierced for 4 years now and have gotten to an 8G. I recently decided to take it up a notch to a 6G. In going from the original stud (I think it was a 14, but I am not certain... could have been a 12) down to the 8G, I had no problems besides some minimal soreness the next day or two. However, for the life of me, I cannot get the 6G through and I will not force it in there. I can get the bar through the top of the piercing but it snags on the bottom of my tongue and I cannot get it through. For those of you who are 6G or lower, do you have any tricks, tips, or aids you use/have used to get your current stud(s) in? Any help is appreciated.
