    ive wanted to get it done for a while, and the girl ive been seeing told me last night that she thinks that it would be hot. if she goes with me and gets her bellybutton pierced i think im gonna do it.
    is this a bad first-time piercing? how long have you experienced that it was before your tongue was back to normal/not noticable?

    no its not bad for a first piercing.. easy to look after, my tongue went back to normal with 4 days altho the bar that I had in at that stage was far to long so it was hard to talk, when you get it changed for the smaller one its fine

    just had my tongue pierced like 5-6 weeks ago... the ONLY thing that hurt was the damn clamp they grab your tongue with, no real pain at all after that cept when if you accidentally get the barbell caught on your teeth.

    dont plan to eat solid foods for a few day till the swelling goes down and you become more comfortable with the barbell in your mouth. like previously mentioned by RJ the hardest part for me was dealing with the length of the barbell. once its healed just get a different barbell that has a shorter length and you wont hardly notice its even there.

    just some tips to make things go easier for you, get yourself a bottle of two of biotene mouthwash from walmart (i went through three of them just to be safe) its a non-alchoholic, antibacterial mouthwash... from what ive read, alchohol isnt the best thing to have in a mouthwash cuz it dries out the wound and slows the healing process. anyway, make sure you keep it with you at all times since you never realize when you might eat or something like that (especially around the holidays) and you wanna clean your mouth out. also, one thing i did to help with the swelling besides the usual ice chunks and cold water was take ibuprofen and ate about an hour before i went to get pierced, that way i wasnt tempted to eat anytime soon so i used my tongue as little as possible and the ibuprofen helped to keep the swelling down... i took 4 of them but i also weigh about 205 lbs.

    hope this helps a little, i learned most of what i do know from asking questions and searching old topics on here. also, if you're considering moving up from the standard gauge (bar thickness which is 14 gauge by the way) eventually after getting your piercing done... just check to see if your piercer will pierce you at a lower (thicker) gauge right away.

    wow thanks for all the advice folks! good idea on eating and getting the pain pills in before the procedure. i have a valid darvocet scrip so that should take care of any pain that bothers me.
    question about studs. if I had the need to conceal the piercing for a short period, are they any sort of clear bio-safe plastic studs that i can get? i read another thread about tonsil removal which i think i am getting done over spring break, so ill have to have plastic for that. im also just thinking ahead in case there is a case where i dont want it to be seen without a close inspection.
    thanks

    tongue was my first piercing, and as said before, the clamps hurt more than the piercing. Just some tenderness for less than a week.

    yes they do make both clear barbells and ones with pinkish colored plastic or plastic-type ends to conceal the fact you have a piercing. the piercing will have to be healed before you can replace the barbell... especially since its something other than stainless steel.

    the ibuprofen was recomended for its qualities to reduce swelling, not to kill pain... swelling will be the hardest thing to deal with, and like i said before you really dont have any pain after the initial piercing. be careful, perscription pain killers slow your heart rate as well and from what ive also read since your heart rate slows itll slow the blood flow to the wound which will also make it heal slower.

    thanks, didnt think of the heart rate thing, i think darvocet has some anti-inflamatory qualities, but maybe ill just stick to OTC stuff so i heal faster.

    I'd go for bio-plast threaded and then put clear plastic beads on it or you can get retainers but the bands can come of those easier that if you had the plastic studs

    ive noticed that most guys think getting your tongue done is homo, but most girls think its the sexiest thing on earth so. its all good, get it done. as long as the ladies like it

    getting my tongue pierced was my first piercing and it went by really smooth. the first week itll be hell.. ..you cant eat right due to the fact that your tongue fills your ENTIRE (well for me) mouth. but other than that i am happy with it :) .. ..oh and it doesnt hurt at all. if i were you i would do it :bigthumb:

    depends on the type of piercing you get. This is why it's VERY IMPORTANT you go to a piercer who has alot of experiance and knows what he/she is doing. There are two basic ways to get yout tongue pierced, and the position should be determaned by your sexual preferance.

    for carpet munching, you want the bar to be more forward on the tongue, and vertical

    for dick sucking you want the bar to be further back, and have it angled so that the top is pointing slightly twords the back of your mouth.


    funny thing is most of the insecure trendy guys get the bar further back so thier partents/boss, ect won't see it. These are usualy the same frat boy idiots that run thier mouth, so I usualy tease them and call them fags. When they get all defensive, thats when I explain the positioning to them, and they get all upset. :rofl:

    Visit Sonic Drive-In and buy just cups of their ice. Works wonders on keeping the swelling down, since the ice "balls" are so small.

    where you get your tongue pierced has no relation to your sexual preference. YOU are the fag for thinking that

    Yeah moron, I wouldn't know anything about that would I? :rolleyes: Man STFU and learn something! Do a little research. :slap: The angle and placement of the piercing should be made to your sexual orientation, unless your just trying to "be cool" like all the other kids looking to rebel against thier parents.

    well lets see...i've got 5years piercing experience, im pretty sure i know something about placement. ALL tongue piercings are angled with the top ball towards the back. its to allow the barbell to sit properly in your mouth when your tongue is at rest! nothing to do with licking pussy or giving head my friend.

    well lets see I've been in the BD/SM scene since 1992, my best friend is one of the top piercing specialists in the dc/balt area, he's been doing this for 11 years, and has even been fetured in The Washington Post. Considering that he's been doing this alot longer than you, and specialises in genital piercings, and given my time in just being a fucked up freak, I think we got you beat in the "experiance" catagory. Seriously do a little reaserch. I'm not saying your work is bad, but I do run into so many guys who do work, but don't really understand why some things are done the way they are. This is probably one of the most commen examples of what I'm talking about. What do you think, somebody just looked in the mirror and said "hey it would be cool if I just stuck this through my tongue".

    you're talking about the original meaning behind the piercing, and if thats the case, then EVERY guy that has it done is a fag! piercing was mainly a gay 'hobby' years ago. the piercing industry was revolutionized by mainly gay men and women. this is 2004, where you get your tongue pierced makes no difference on your sexual preference.
