Getting my tongue pierced. . . For the THIRD time

I'd previously had my tongue pierced before twice. First time I took it out cause my boyfriend at the time decided he didn't like it, yes I know, I'm an idiot for taking it out for that purpose but hey, we all make mistakes!! The second time I had it pierced after I left him, I took it out that time cause I was on a night out and it seemed like a good idea to take the bar out and change it to another one when I was drunk . . yes I know again, not a good idea ... read more

A relatively easy procedure.

To be totally honest, this was by far the easiest piercing that I have ever gotten, and this is including my earlobes [which were admittedly done with piercing guns, but either way...]. My boyfriend and I took the bus to the shop, and on the way there, I started to get a bit antsy about getting it done. While doing my research on the piercing, I had also compared over 6 different shops in the Chicago area before deciding to go with Tatu Tattoo, so my confidence in that decision alleviated most of the nervousness. I knew that they were ... read more

Tongue piercing that's lasted well

Of all my piercings, past and present, my tongue has been the most long lived. This piercing took place before I had ever stumbled upon BMEzine, or dabbled in much body-mod/experimentation. I was fairly clueless about piercing methods, or even the extremes that body-modding has been taken to by people around the world. At eighteen I was in the habit of skipping class, as I was bored with high school, and had just gotten my first car. There weren't any piercing shops at the time in my small home town on Vancouver Island (called Ladysmith), but there were a few ... read more

aftercare far worse than actual piercing, definitely bearable though

This is the story of my tongue piercing. I was going to Sydney on Friday with a girl friend and decided that a tattoo would be far too expensive and spontaneous so decided I would get my tongue pierced instead. I do not suggest planning it out like this. Well I do, but don't set a particular date because this is what I did and ended up psyching myself out..almost. So I decided to buy all the necessary aftercare stuff, such as a new toothbrush and liquid meals, thinking if I prepared this much I wouldn't back out in the ... read more

My Tongue Piercing Experience

I use to say that I would never get my tongue pierced. However, the years have gone by since that remark and the idea of a tongue piercing was growing on my brain. Then about a week ago, I was out with some friends and I finally decided to just go do it. I, myself, am the type of person who wants something like a tattoo or a piercing at that moment and has to go get it right then. Otherwise, I usually end up not getting it. Which is what I did with all five of the tattoos I ... read more

good ol' Venoms

Well, as an avid bme visitor, I've become obsessed with various body mods and rituals. A lot of them are out of my reach, or I'm not committed enough to them, so I just end up admiring them through my computer screen. One of the piercings I've been into for a while which was quite possible for me to get were the 'venom' piercings. Now, I already have my center tongue, belly button, nipples, septum, conch, and ears stretched. I also have a rib tattoo and a foot tattoo, which are pretty big, so I'd say I'm pretty good with ... read more

restoration of my fave piercing....

I originally had my tongue pierced about 2 years ago, I loved it from the moment it was done. I went back to place (not other side!) where I had it done to get the bar changed to a shorter one, and it was ok..or so i thought...The bar was slightly too tight, so I loosened it a bit, didn't think I had loosened it as much as I did...but there you go, went to bed, woke up next day...bar on my pillow, ball in stuck down the side of my mouth....NO MORE TONGUE PIERCING.... I was gutted. So that ... read more

My first piercing, the least painful yet

Ever since I was 12, I have wanted my tongue pierced. Before all the emo kids started getting snake bites and multiple lip piercings and before any of my friends thought it was cool. I wanted people to see me and say "Wow, that's a piercings I have never seen before". At the time it was unique, although its not so much anymore. It was the summer of 6th grade, I went into a piercing parlor with my dad while he got his first tattoo. I was not aloud in the back with my dad so had to sit up ... read more

i heart my tongue piercing

I wanted my tongue pierced for around a year now, but I was always too chicken to go through with it. In my head, getting a needle pushed through your tongue must hurt way beyond simply biting your tongue, surely... right? I had some concerns though, as I had had to remove my centre lip piercing due to gum erosion – it hadn't even been in there for two weeks. I was worried that the tongue piercing might have the same effect, but that really didn't bother me enough to put me off. I was sure I could tackle that ... read more

Fresh Venoms

I have been looking up venoms on the internet for a while and today, since it is my 18th birthday and no one can say or do anything about it, I decided to go down to Big Lefty's to finally get them done. I trust Big Lefty's 'cause I've only heard good things about the place, and I know fist-hand that the piercer knows what he's doing, 'cause my sister has gotten her ears stretched there and my friend got a regular tongue piercing as well, and both came out excellent. I left my house, kind of enraged and kind ... read more
