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*
