so excited. it really didnt hurt at all. the worst part was swishing the brown listerine before the piercing. the clamp wasnt bad, and i couldnt even feel the needle. i went out and bought two bottles of biotene, and some pudding, and now im melting ice in my mouth. the stud is SO long, i cant wait to get a shorter one in. they said 1.5 to 2 weeks, but ill be in there on friday if the swelling is down. i got a real deal, $20 with the stud. i would do pictures, but most everyone has their own pierced, or has seen the pictures of it.
