No Having any form of lump or bump next to a closed piercing indicates there is some form of issue with the piercing. This also depends on how long the jewellery has been out of the piercing and how long you had the piercing before removing the jewellery. If you develop any pain or discomfort seek the assistance of your doctor.

Is it normal to have a red bump by your tongue piercing?

Not really. It's best to get that checked out to make sure it isn't an infection... In the long run, that can do some damage.

What could it mean if you have a bump on your nose piercing?

If its an old piercing its most likely scar tissue, if its a new piercing its most likely getting infected and there is pus in the bump.

I got my tongue pierced and its to far back i went to 2 other piercers and they said it was fine but im unhappy with it if i take it out how long should i wait to get it repierced?

Normal placement is 3/4" from the tip of the tongue to the top ball. If your tongue is unusually long placement can vary slightly. If you remove the piercing (no sooner than 72 hours from the time the piercing was first done) you will need to wait at least 3~4 weeks from removal date to get the piercing redone. The tongue swells and distends once it's pierced so we need to be sure this swelling is gone and the old piercing had healed up so there is no bump or distension from the old piercing to interfere with the new piercing. edit: did you know people get (not uncommon either) brain abscesses from their tongue piercings? be careful, because this is definitely one of the most dangerous areas to pierce considering how close it is to your brain stem.

You got your tongue pierced 3 weeks ago and you have a white bump next to ot now is this scar tissue?

No it's not scar tissue, it's just the tongue's equivalent to a scab. This will disappear over the next few days as the piercing heals and toughens.

How do you get rid of bump around your dimple piercing?

A bump around your dimple piercing is the body guarding the piercing, the surrounding tissue toughens as the piercing heals. This will ease off as the piercing heals, ensure you are rinsing the piercing daily under running water (best done in the shower after shampoo and conditioner as these tend to irritate the piercing). Should you have serious concerns contact your body piercer and let him/her have a look at it.
