good good :)


here's some info i found:

Tongue Piercing

* Always wash hands thoroughly before contact with piercing.
* Do not use rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide.  (Both slow the healing of the piercing by drying and killing new healthy cells.)
* Healing time 6-8 weeks.
* No oral contact of any kind for 6 weeks.  (No wet kissing or oral sex without a barrier.)
* Suck on ice or popsicles the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and pain.
* Reduce intake of warm beverages, hot or spicy foods, tobacco, alcohol and anything irritating to your mouth.
* Rinse with mouthwash for 30-60 seconds after consumption of anything other than water.  If Listerine is too harsh it may be diluted, or use 1/4 teaspoon sea salt to an 8oz glass of water.
* Use Gly-Oxide/Peroxyl twice daily following the instructions on the bottle.  5 drops on top, 5 drops underneath; let foam and spit.  (This is very important.)  Afterwards you may rinse with water or salt water.
* The size of the stud is important in the healing process.  It is best to use a post 1/4" longer than the thickness of your tongue.  When the swelling has gone down, the poast can be downsized to a slightly shorter but still roomy length.  After 6-8 weeks you can wear a stud the length of the piercing.

talk to me....

i like that pic of you....

anyhow, i have had my tongue pierced twice, so i think i can offer up any advice you might need. hell, i could do the *piercing* for that matter. heh...

it's really relatively painless, especially compared to most other piercings out there. it heals *very* quickly. you'll want it pierced with the assumption that your tongue will swell, therefore use a longer barbell (maybe 7/8"? i don't know how big your tongue is, but the piercer will know), then once the swelling does go down, wait a couple of weeks...then go get a shorter one (maybe ½" tall), which will make it worlds easier to eat, talk, and....other stuff.

definitely be careful about the straws and anything else you may want to suck on. it hurts like a BITCH. but don't worry, it doesn't last long.

and about a week after having it done, new tissue will begin growing inside the piercing, so you will see some *semi*-white fleshy stuff around the entry and exit. don't pick at it!!!

you will swish listerine until an entire friggin' layer of your mouth sloughs off. but compared to an infection in your tongue, i don't think it was so bad. and you'll be killing the germs that cause bad breath. =)

any other questions, feel free to ask. and lemme tell you, leigh will thank you later. *wink*
