self tongue piercings
I became interested in body modification, mainly piercing and tattooing, when
I was abou 12 years old. I remember the first time I saw a pierced tongue.
the chick on the real work got one and they showed her getting it done. from
that day on I had always wanted my tongue pierced my only problem was that I
was so young and my parents were so against it. So, obviously, tattoos were
also out of the question. But, eversince that day I have been experimenting
with usually safety pins, I guess you would call it play piercing. I would
just pierce verious parts of my body just to see what it would feel like and
once I got a safety pin stuck through my tongue and realized how little it
hurt I didnt understand why every one that saw one made such a painful face.
it truthefully hurt less that piercing my own ears. but, any ways I was still
in the situation of not having anything pierced, but my ears, and now I am
seventeen. so here is the story of my first kept body piercing besides my
ears. I hope you enjoy.
over the summer I came acrossed a nice looking barbell in my girlfriends
jewelry box. she had no use for it and told me that I could have it if I
wanted it ... so I took it not knowing what I was going to do with it. at the
time I was kicked out of my house and homeless. so, I was sitting up late in
a park contemplating what I should get pierced. I was thinking about my
eyebrow, but I didn't really want it that bad. I thought about a lot of
different piercings until I thought of my tongue... and I was like fuck yeah.
and then is when I pull the safety pin off of my back pack and held it over my
lighter (just so every one knows, I highly do not recommend doing this. if
your going to do a pierce by yourself, at least get a real needle and make
sure it is sterilized) trying not to get the pin all black. after a bout 30
seconds of that I let the pin cool down and sat down on a park bench and
started feeling my tongue for a good place. I wanted to put it towards the
front. so I took the pin and used my fingers to guide it to its new home (I
also recommend using a mirror) I felt the prick in the bottom of my tongue
making sure it was dead center. then I shoved it through... now comes the
difficult part. I would say the safety pin was about 18g well my barbell was
16g, but I had to try to push the safety pin out of my tongue with the barbell
not 30 seconds later...SUCCESS!!! on the first shot straight through till I
got to the bottom hole the hole didn't want to give...so I pushed harder
until....POP (literally the noise it made) it went through ... so after I
screw the ball on to the bar I go to the nearest public restroom to see how it
looks. PERFECT straight up and down with just and just slightly angled back.
I was so excited. it didn't effect my speech till about ten minutes
afterwards. and my speech was only effected for about 45 minutes then I got
used to it being there. after about 2 days the swelling was almost
nonexistent but I could feel a little swollen area about the size of a little
marble around the hole... it was gone in about 3 more days.
since then I have moved back home and gotten a job. I bought a new curved
barbell that would be for my nipple at the store one day and went home and pierced my nipple the same way I did my tongue. it was surprisingly less painful than it looks. but after about two days of having it I ran out of money and cleaning products. so immediately took it out taking no risk for infection. then I was just messing around with the barbell I put it in my tongue and it fit so perfectly into my tongue so now I had and extra straight barbell ... time to hit that tongue again :)
this time I had a mirror. and mouth wash. I washed my mouth out and cleaned the needle then went out to the garage where we have a mirror about 6 feet tall. I pierced it the same way I pierced my tongue before, put the safety pin through and follow it back through with a barbell. perfect ... went through and was done with out a hitch. I was so excited to have two in my tongue. it looked great it didn't effect my speech the second time but it was sore for about 5 days instead of 2 . just kept my mouth wash handy and I have had then both for quite a while now.
now that I have descovered BME, I think I am going to venture down below the
belt, before I saw BME there really was no info that I could get about the piercings so I was pretty ignorant when it came to that kind of stuff. but in february I am planning on getting a PA and two dydoes, thank you BME :)
thank you for reading my story
(please if you want to do a pierce by your self get a hold of someone who knows what there doing, that doesn't mean me, but if you want to ask me something email me at KREEP18@aol.com)
