IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER


When it comes to popular piercings, the tongue is one of the most popular locations. Men and women both get their tongues pierced for a variety of personal reasons. With all the different piercings that are available, you are bound to find one that fits your style and personality. This article will give you some important information about tongue piercings and give you an idea of all the piercings that are available for you too choose.









Tongue piercings have been practiced for hundreds of years by a variety of different ancient cultures. The Aztecs and a variety of ancient Asian cultures are just a few of the many cultures that practiced tongue piercings. Ancient cultures used tongue piercings for a variety of different purposes, such as religious and cultural. Just like tattoos, tongue piercings would have been symbolic to these ancient cultures.









Before you decide to get your tongue pierced, there are some very important things that you need to consider. First, there are a variety of different veins that run on the bottom of the tongue. Most piercers can avoid these veins, but occasionally, these veins can cause you to not be able to get your tongue pierced. You will have to check with a professional piercer to make sure your veins will not be an issue. It is rare that this occurs, but you still need to make sure there will not be any issue.









Another reason that can cause you to not be able to get your tongue pierced is your tongue web. Your tongue web allows you to stick out your tongue and retract your tongue back in your mouth. If your tongue web is long, it can make getting a tongue piercing an issue. On occasion, it may cause piercing issues or you may not be able to get your tongue pierced. Once again, a professional piercer will be able to tell you if your tongue web will be a problem.









Lastly, if your tongue web is too tight, it can really cause you discomfort once you have your tongue piercing in. Your piercing can rub the webbing of your tongue and cause you mild to severe discomfort. All three of these reasons are very important to consider and can be performed by a professional piercer. More then likely, you will be just fine. On rare occasions though, some people can't get their tongue pierced.

PIERCINGS LOCATIONS AND YOUR FIRST MONTH AFTER


The tongue can be pierced in a variety of different ways. The tongue can be pierced in the center of the tongue. Some piercers prefer to enter from the bottom while others prefer to enter from the top. I have been told either way and that there is no difference. You can also get your tongue pierced from side to side, in the side of the tongue. You can get one that runs just under the tongue and you can get off-center piercings as well. This will be another decision that you will have to make when it comes time for your piercing.













Once you get your tongue pierced, discomfort is more then certain at first. There will also be a strong case of swelling. Remember, everyone hurts and heals differently. In most cases, the first week is always the most painful. It can take up to a month or more for your tongue to properly heal. During this time, eating, talking, and sleeping may be difficult.

You said: 'They are a lot popular then what I first thought. All the girls at work but a few have them.' Yes, they are in fact very, very popular. Even the lady serving at the local Christian bookstore had one, I saw. My guess is that she would have gotten it simply as a jewelry enhancement, like an alternative to extra earrings. Interesting hub.
