This isn't meant to discourage anyone from getting a tongue piercing as I am still a fan of the piercing, but I think everybody who is considering getting one should read this first as it is a very real risk. I've been a fan of tongue piercings for a long time and I was getting that all too familiar "piercing itch" again after a few months had passed since the last time I got something new. The job I have doesn't allow facial piercings, and the only one I have is my left nostril. It's been healed up for long ... read more

My adorable/horrible tongue piercing

So I guess I can start by saying i`m young but in love with body piercings. My parents don't have any but if you walk around high school, you see tons of girls/guys with their lips,eyebrows,Monroe's, etc. and its hard NOT to fall in love. Ever since i was 11, I was obsessed with the tongue piercing because I saw it on a movie THIRTEEN. I started to come on BME and read stories which just made me want it even more, but I never thought about actually asking my parents because my dad is 100% strict! I started with ... read more

Tongue Timed

During the three months leading up to my tongue piercing, I added an eyebrow, a tragus and an industrial to my then small body mod family. Like many body modders I've talked to, I gave the "oh, it's not so bad, it just bleeds and swells and interferes with my daily activity" answer to the perfunctory "Didn't that hurt?" question. And you know, they really weren't bad. Not to mention I thought they looked absolutely fabulous. I knew I had The Hunger. That sweet rush of needwantmusthaveohlookiethatscoolhowmuchokaypiercemenow that followed me wherever I went, especially when looking into my girlfriends mouth, ... read more

I love the hole in my tongue!

I had always wanted a tongue piercing but could never get up the nerve to do it. I did a lot of research and constantly came to this website to read other people's stories. As I read other people's tales I began to work up the nerve and thought 'hey if all these people can do it, so can I'. Also, it had gotten so common with so many people I know having it that I figured it couldn't be that bad. Finally, two summers ago I decided that I needed to do something fun and memorable. I decided to ... read more

Tongue Frenectomy for Tongue Piercing

How it all started I've been anticipating on the idea of getting my tongue pierced for a pretty long time. I've wanted it for years, and when I let the piercer examine my tongue, I was sadly disappointed with the news she gave me; my tongue web was in the way. I sort of knew it was big, when I stuck my tongue out, it would get stuck between my teeth and annoy the hell out of me. So I went home, un-pierced and kind of sad. Am I crazy? Then, as I asked around the options I had, I ... read more

I Was Terrified

About four months ago, I started complaining to my mom about how bad I wanted a tongue piercing. I had wanted one for sometime but had just started mentioning it, because my mom told me to stop complaining about it because "only sluts and whores get their tongue pierced to perform sexual acts of pleasure." It surprised me how little time it took for me to convince my mom to let me get it done. I was so happy to finally be getting a piercing that did not have to do with my ears. I called around to different tattoo ... read more

This is my experience of tongue piercing and stretching.

I had always loved the idea of one day having my tongue split, and I thought that getting it pierced and then stretching it would be a good way of starting off this process. I had been told that having a well healed large gauge piercing was good way to start a split. On a Saturday afternoon in January my friend Lucy and myself went up to ipswich on the train, I was quite nervous because it was the first piercing I was going to have done with a needle, I was also a little worried about the swelling side ... read more

Is that it?

I've always liked piercings, I had my ear pierced when I was 15 and I wanted to get more, but being from a small town it just wasn't possible to get any other piercings. I've moved around a bit since then, and I've had access to several different studios to get my piercings, but life kept getting in the way. My jobs wouldn't allow it, girlfriend was against it, you know how it is, we don't always get what we want and we can't always change that. But I recently moved to Fort McMurray again (like I said, I've moved ... 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
