I had my tongue done yesterday, the actual piercing part didnt hurt - its after that you feel the pain. I can't eat anything apart from jelly, icecream, mashed potatoes and soup! The swelling has gone down abit as I have been drinking lots of cold water and taking soluable painkillers, eating solids is hard so I wouldnt reccomend trying. I can't wait for the swelling to get down so I can have my bar changed to a smaller one, the large one gets uncomfortable after a while, apart from that I love my piercing :)

Cody Leigh on a scale of 1-10 for the piercing itself I give it a 1 no doubt. Not saying you don't feel it, because there is a slight lil prick. Like someone said its like a little pinch. The pain afterwards is like maybe a 2, and thats not even the tongue. It's mostly the bed under your tongue, because the barbell is so long to compensate for the swelling that it pretty much keeps pressure on it the whole time. Its more annoying than painful. And try not to talk, especially words with "ch" and "r". Those really make you flex your tongue and can hurt like a [email protected]#$h. As long as you have good oral hygiene you are safe with the infections. Just use mouth wash after everything you eat. Use alcohol free otherwise it can burn. If you do get an infection contact your piercer and they will know what to do. It is HIGHLY recommended that you go back to the parlor so the pro's can change your bar for you, just because your tongue isn't completely healed when you have to change your bar that its sensitive and you can screw it up. And with your parents, just try not to talk to them much lol or ask your piercer if they have anything thats not shiny. As far as the bars having nickel, I have no idea. Shouldnt be hard to look up on the internet though.

My nephew just got his pierced and said it hurt worse than ear piercing but wasn't that bad. If you do it, I would recommend getting a plastic ball. The metal will damage your teeth badly.

My son had his done, and his tongue was swollen for a few days, and the only thing he could eat was applesauce, and foods that weren't going to be in contact with the piercing for too long. I wouldn't recommend doing it, but if you do, make sure that you listen to what they say about keeping it healthy. Hope this helps.

My mum and brother had theres done and they didnt feel any thing whereas when I had mine done it was a really really bad pain,, !!! Once its over its over though although you do get the swelling for about a week after and the pain of eating!! So if you do get it done to save even more pain stick to soups and soft food for about a week or soo!!!!

The Piercing part doesn't hurt at all, but is sensitive for about a week while adjusting to
new weight of the piercing. The bottom of the mouth, where the tongue sits will hurt more
then the piercing itself.

I got my tongue pierced three times in different places so I had three piercings all together. I would suggest sucking a lot of ice chips to keep swelling down.  Before I got my tongue pierced three different times though. My dentist and I would have debates about the one piercing because having my tongue pierced only once would cause damage to my teeth from accidently biting the ball while eating my food, this didn't matter if I had a metal ball or a plastic ball. You bite just right and you can chip or crack your teeth so needless to say I saw my dentist a lot. After about six years and spending a lot of money for dental bills I reluctantly took my tongue percings out. Broke my heart but I had to do it before the dentist took all my money so enjoy well you can just be careful and get a good dental plan.

I'm hoping to get my tongue pierced this weekend, I have had my navel pierced for almost two years and thought it was painless, even though I have read that tongue piercings are painless also I still have my doubs, can anyone think of way to reassure myself, or what to do whilst I'm having the piercing?

Seriously if I could I'd get this piercing done 100 million more times thats how much it didn't hurt (: Haha my tongue didn't swell or anything I could eat regular food right after I got it done, it just felt weird after I did it because I was drinking water and I was like 'what the hell is in my mouth' thats when I realized it happened. Yeah it does get in the way of eating sometimes but you just have to train yourself to eat slower
