    @1MarsTS cool thanks 😀 i think im gonna borrow my friends long one.. and im gewd!! xD

  10. 1MarsTS says:

    @kelsibluegurl ive heard your supposed to keep the long barbel in for ATLEAST a week, it depends on the swelling. atleast a week, but sometimes 2 weeks or even up to a month. but after your swelling goes down you should get a shorter barbel – to bring down the chances of you biting on it and chipping your teeth as well-

  11. kelsibluegurl says:

    how long does it swell for?? like should i get a long barbell anddd a shirter one for after?? cuz i dont want this huge thing in my mouth all the time :/

  12. 1MarsTS says:

    hey i have a question, im wanting my tongue pierced within the next year or so, and ive read up about it and stuff and most people say ‘dont play with the piercing too much’ does that only refer to while its healing, or anytime even when it is healed…cause i have a bad habit of fiddling around with stuff ;/

    No…not really..

    Mine too (well, when I got my lip pierced, at least)! Did yours say you could dilute it if it was too strong?

  15. ThexDoctorsxLie says:

    It is okay to smoke, just try to minimize it if you can and after smoking rinse your mouth out with mouthwash or saline solution. :]

    @carolina7747 I suppose to be technical, anyone could die from infection but it’s highly unlikely. You could die from an infection from an uncared for cut on your arm, even. If you go to a piercer who knows what they’re doing, and you take care of the piercing after you’ll be fine. They myths about numbing your face forever or bleeding out are untrue.

    @kkaahh96 Hi there, I thought I would answer your question as I see it’s been up for almost a week and I don’t see a response. The first week or so of having a tongue piercing it’ll be swollen and will hurt so that may affect your ability to play. But once it’s healed in a few weeks you can do anything you can do without a tongue piercing. :] Hope this was helpful

    no,he just said he’s a body piercer/tattooist

  19. Pixie2253 says:

    If u use alcohol on it than it can heal as fast

  20. kkaahh96 says:

    So I was wondering how a tongue piercing could affect playing an instrument. Because I play trombone and I want a tongue piercing. If you could respond to me or make a vid that would be great! ^_^
