The idea behind getting a tongue ring was to honor the Gods and by inflicting pain, showing one’s honor. Tongue piercing began as a religious practice more than an artistic or decorative practice. … It is also sometimes a worry for people that a tongue piercing can cause dental issues and teeth chipping and wear.
One may also ask, what does it mean when your tongue piercing is nesting?
If your piercing jewelry is starting to sink into your skin/tissue, see your piercer right away for a longer bar. Some piercing do embed slightly, we refer to this as ‘nesting‘. Lip and tongue piercings tend to do this as our oral tissue is very soft. … Oral tissue regenerates much quicker than other body tissue.
Besides, how do fake tongue rings work?
You just need to place the fake tongue ball between your teeth and press your tongue up to it. When you suck on the fake tongue ball, it just sticks to the tongue. … Magnets prevent the piece of jewelry from falling off and that gives an impression of real tongue piercing.
Do tongue piercings smell?
Because tongue rings pierce the tongue and use a piece of jewelry, the incidence of food particles and bacteria collecting in the cavity is high. This is the primary cause of odor or smell coming from the mouth even without tongue piercings. … Remove the tongue piercing carefully from your mouth.
Swapping saliva brings in foreign bacteria, which can impede healing. And because the tongue swells, a larger barbell is initially used — usually for seven to 10 days — making kissing more difficult.
Often a barbell end will rest or nest into the top of the tongue. This is wear a small crater or indention will form around the top piercing hole that the ball will nest or rest in. This is normal and usually will not cause a problem unless more than 30% of the ball rests into the tongue during healing.
My advice to everyone is to downsize their jewelry as soon as swelling goes away, usually in 2 – 4 weeks after initial piercing. Sometimes it may even have to be downsized again. The traditional tongue piercing is only done through the tongue muscles vertically between both muscles.
Some other strategies that can speed healing include:
- brushing the teeth regularly to keep the mouth clean.
- rinsing the piercing after each meal.
- not smoking.
- minimizing talking during the first few days.
- not playing with or touching the piercing.
Tongue piercings seem pretty trashy to me. I like tongue piercings, and in fact had one myself for 12 years. On girls, I think it looks pretty hot, and the one girl I hooked up with who had one used it well enough. The biggest con is that most guys find them unattractive.
While the piercing itself is not particularly difficult or painful, you should expect a good deal of swelling afterward; you may also find you have a slight lisp and difficulty speaking for the first two to four days, but this is temporary and will improve as the swelling decreases. …
Unfortunately, yes. A tongue piercing can cause damage to teeth. Piercings are usually hard metal, which inside the mouth can cause damage. Biting down onto the piercing or playing with it can result in scratching or chipping teeth, as well as increased tooth sensitivity.
When used for oral sex, the small metal ball or tongue ring that is on the tip of the ring will add pressure, tease, and bring a new sensation to the experience for your lover. People that use them seem to get off on the fact that their partner enjoys oral sex so much.
About tongue piercings, it is true that tongue piercings do not completely close up if they have completely healed before the tongue stud is removed. However, they do close up relatively quickly.
Can you kiss after a tongue piercing? Avoid kissing for at least 3 weeks. Kissing is the second most likely source of infection risk, you need to be careful to prevent bacteria getting into the mouth.
