Body piercing is not a new trend. Many cultures have been piercing the body for centuries, for a variety of reasons. Today, the primary reason for body piercings in this country is style; piercing is a way to express one’s individuality.
While some cringe at the mere mention of tongue piercing, you can do plenty to reduce your risk. The most important factor in choosing a tongue piercer is to select a person experienced and licensed in the state where you live. While not all states require a professional piercer to be licensed, this extra step ensures that the person has taken necessary steps to reduce the risk of infection and complications. It is also important to check out the piercing studio to ensure the place is clean and organized. This will tell you if the people who work there care about their work and the safety of their clients the way they should.
The type of jewelry that is used in tongue piercing will make a difference in how successful the piercing is. The best kind of metal to use for tongue piercing is implant grade stainless steel. While it may cost a bit more than other types of metal used for piercings, the value is in the safety and effectiveness of the procedure. Always go for this type of metal when you can, but if implant grade stainless steel is not available, 18K gold is the next best thing. Only agree to a titanium stud if the metal has been highly polished to reduce the porous tendency and never allow a piercer to use silver on a brand new piercing due to the negative side effects that can result.
The placement of the tongue piercing can also affect how healthy and comfortable the piercing ends up. Go for a piercing right along the midline of the tongue, which will put your piercing essentially in the center of your mouth. Another common placement of a tongue piercing is about ¾” from the tip of the tongue. Proper placement will help to keep the piercing comfortable and possible avoid damage to the teeth from the piercing. An experienced piercer will know the best placement, which is another reason why it is important to choose someone who has done this procedure for your own piercing.
A Word of Caution
It is important to note that many health professionals recommend against tongue piercing because the risk of infection tin the mouth and damage to teeth is rather high. However, if you choose an experienced piercer who is licensed in his craft, your risk factors can be reduced. With the proper precautions, tongue piercing will be a way of expressing your individuality and flaunting your unique style.
