The tale of my double tongue web (DIY)

Before I get into my story, I'll give you a bit of background info. I'm 20 and I currently have 29 piercings (and a couple more that I had to remove) and 4 tattoos. From a very early age, I have always loved body mods, particularly piercings, and have done several of my own, including lobe piercings, anti-tragus, inverse navel, labret, nostril, inner labia a surface piercing on the inside of my ankle, and my double tongue web, the subject of this story. Okay, so let me start by saying that DIY piercing is not a good plan. I do ... read more

The Adventures of my Tiny Tongue!

My center tongue piercing was by far my most nerve-wracking and ambitious piercing. However, compared to my earlobe, nostril, and industrial piercings, it was (to my surprise) the least painful. I got my tongue pierced at Miraculous Creations in Worcester, MA by a woman named Heather. Miraculous Creations was where I got my industrial done, and they did a fabulous job with it so I trusted them to do an equally fabulous job on my tongue. The place is always immaculately clean, the piercers are friendly and professional, and the work done there is always first rate. I felt extremely ... read more

Finally 18

Growing up, I was allowed two ear piercings, my first and second holes. My mother is very conservative and wouldn't even consider letting me get my cartilidge pierced. So for years I have had the chance to think of what I wanted when I would finally turn 18. After about a year or two of deliberating what my first piercing would be, I decided I wanted a tongue piercing. I thought they were sexy and provocative, yet the whole world didn't have to know you had them. That was it, on my birthday I went to go get my tongue ... read more

A Wonderful Tongue Piercing and Healing Experience

First off, I would like to say I am not here to encourage underage piercing! I was lucky and had a good experience with it, that does not mean the same will be true for everyone! It all started when I was sixteen and my friend invited me to go to Paris with her and her family. It didn't take much for my parents to approve and, before I knew it, I was packing my bags! I don't know when I decided I was going to get pierced while I was there, but as soon as I did, I began ... read more

2nd Centre Tongue

I got my first centre tongue piercing in August of 2007, and have wanted another piercing on my tongue ever since. I have quite a long tongue, so when I went in to get my tragus pierced, I asked if it would be able to be pierced again, and she said that it should be no problem. Due to work, I decided to wait until I had a long weekend (ended up doing it on a Friday and having to work through the weekend anyway). I walked into my usual piercing place (have had every piercing except three done there, ... read more

Over before you know it

So I had been thinking about getting another piercing for a while, but I couldn't decide on what exactly I wanted. I finally narrowed it down to nipples, nose, or tongue. Although most of my friends told me I should get my nose pierced, I knew it wasn't what I really wanted because it's such a common piercing. The nipples got shot down by my friend who was going with me to get my new piercing. So I then decided I was going to get my tongue pierced. I wanted something that was going to be relatively hidable and easy ... read more

My Venoms

I've personally always been a spontaneous person when it came to piercings. About a year and half ago after I turned 18, I thought it was about time to get the perfect piercing(s) for myself. After a few weeks of pondering I came to a decision: Venoms. I had met someone a few months before then with venoms and I loved them. He was the only other person I had met or even seen with them. When I told my friends they thought I was crazy, but I didn't care. I wanted to get it done a few weeks before ... read more


I got my first piercing at 14. I originally went in to have my tongue pierced, but my mom told me no at last minute so I got my eyebrow instead. I'm now 15 and my New Year's resolution was to get my tongue pierced. After fighting with my mom about it for weeks she finally said yes. So we went back to XTC Rings to visit Abbey. He relocated and his new shop is so much better than the last one. He remembered me and asked me if I was fially getting my tongue pierced and I told him ... read more


At 14 I was just starting to get into mods. For months I'd look at BME.com and always I'd click on the tongue album. Back then (4 years ago) there wasn't as many photos in the Tongue section as there are now. My best friend Leah was the same as me. We'd sometimes draw out pictures of what we wanted to look like when we were older and the main thing we had in common was that we both wanted our tongues pierced. We got to talking and were both like "how easy would it be to hide it?" We ... read more

Tongue Rod

Okay, so I'd been thinking about doing this for a while, and finally had both the money and the courage at the same time. My friends were all sort of worried and my mom told me it was a really bad idea. I didn't care though, my mind was made up. I went to Iron Age Studios (where my sister got her lapel done) and talked to a few people there about what it would be like, and what gauge I should get. I finally settles on an 18 gauge to start out. They told me I could stretch it ... read more
