Tongues, anyone?

I'd never really wanted a tongue piercing up until a few months ago. Really, I didn't see much appeal to them. Didn't find them attractive whatsoever and thought it would just not suit me. So that was alright, I went on without one though my (few)years of modifying- and proving basically anyone ever seeing me and the rest of my facial piercings wrong, in their assumptions that I would be the one to have my tongue pierced. It was actually BME's gallery that started the change in my mind of 'no' to 'maybe'. I'd seen venoms. Liked them quite a ... read more

Ice and Ibuprofen

I had been toying with the idea of a tongue piercing for years, but typically I'd always had some sort of excuse. Finally, a convenient time occurred, that being my A-Level study leave (using the term 'study' loosely here). I thought this was as good a time as any, as I could afford to be a social recluse for a few days while I mastered the art of speech with an abnormally large tongue. Of course I had heard all the horror stories, and been informed that I would probably get cancer/septicaemia/all manner of diseases. However I chose to ignore ... read more

Tongue Piercing

I have been thinking of getting my tongue pierced now for around 2 years, I mentioned it to my mum around then and she was very against the idea, and although I was 18 at the time i still decided to wait to be sure it was what I wanted. Now 20, and still very tempted, I decided to go for it when my best friend said she wanted hers done, and we agreed to go together. We went to a tattoo and piercing shop in our local area with a very good reputation. We didn't know anyone who had ... read more

His and hers tongue studs

My first and only mod (so far) is a center tongue piercing. My wife and I decided to both get it done. But we waited a week in between getting it done so at least one of us could talk if the phone rang. It was a spur of the week kind of thing. We do a lot of things together on a whim. We met online, married in 10 months in Jamaica on the beach. It is still a bit of a shock to myself that I have a tongue stud. I hate needles. Hate them. I hate pain ... read more

painful - but very worth it!

My most recent piercing before this double center tongue piercing was done 8 years ago, so I was relying on advice of friends in the area about who to go to. I currently live in Michigan and came back to Rochester (my hometown) to go to Jason at Primitive Impressions, and I am so happy that I did. I had a very positive experience that was made even better by feeling like I could put my trust in this piercer and his studio, which is really important to me. I was even more impressed with the general atmosphere and attitude ... read more

"Frenny", my tongue web!

My love for piercings started about a year ago, when I pierced the cartilage on my left ear. Since then, I've added three more piercings to my ears, but wasn't allowed anything else anywhere else because of my parents. But I was itching to get pierced again, preferably somewhere where my parents couldn't see. And so, the idea of a tongue web piercing was born. I would have done it earlier, had time and money allowed it, but only two days ago, the opportunity presented itself. I ended up in Monkys after school with my small group of friends, since ... read more

Not as bad as you think.

About 50 minutes ago I got my tongue pierced. I already have my ears, bellybutton, labret and septum. Boy did they hurt. I am probably the biggest baby when it comes to piercings and needles, actually, anything that is supposed to be painful. This is my story about getting my tongue pierced, hopefully this helps make up anybody's mind who is having second thoughts about getting it done, or who is just interested. I spent a lot of my time looking at pictures and reading stories about this particular piercing before I got it done and they helped me make ... read more

Finally pierced my tongue!

I have been wanting to pierce my tongue since I was about 15 years old. I even visited local piercing shops to find out the details, but every time I brought the papers back home for my mom to sign, I was REJECTED! Each time I was getting more and more angry, so finally I just decided that I would do it when i turned 18. That didn't fly well with my mom. So a couple years later my birthday rolls around and I am totally pumped at the fact that I made an appointment for the piercing and was ... read more

Nice one dad!

So, here I am, just a normal 17 year old girl, with a love of piercing. At the time I write this I have 14 piercing, most of which have been done without my parents consent. I would have had 16 piercing by now, but I had to take my tongue web and conch piercing out =[. I had wanted a tongue piercing for a while, but my mum refused point blank to let me have one. I tried all the usual arguments such as "I'll look after it" and "You won't even see it". Still she said no. I ... read more

FINALLY - my tongue piercing

I've wanted a tongue piercing since the first time I saw one, probably when I was in middle school. I love the way a barbell bead sits so nicely on the tongue, adding something small but beautiful to the mouth. But to be honest, I waited until now because the idea of a piece of metal through my tongue scared the shit out of me. I'm not a novice when it comes to piercings, but somehow the tongue just seemed different... It's such a major part of the things you do every day (talking and eating), and the thought of ... read more
