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.
