because there is the risk of hitting an artery in your tongue and bleeding out. An experienced piercer will have no problem with a tongue piercing though.

How painful is a tongue piercing?

The initial piercing is not painful. The only thing felt is the pressure of needle. The clamp on the tongue hurts more than the actual piercing. The healing after is the painful part. The tongue will swell, and the muscle will be sore. As the tongue adjust to the metal and heals itself from the initial tear and swelling, the pain will subside, generally over a few days following the piercing. By experience, a piercing in the upper cartilage hurts more than a piercing in the tongue.

Tongue piercings do not hurt much. Even a tongue web or double tonuge which seem to have a higher pain level, do not hurt too much.

I am plannig to have a conch piercing and just read at site rightpiercing dot com that it hurts too much if I plan to have an inner and outer conch at the same time. Emily


If a girl has a tongue ring what does that mean?

Well actually she would have a "tongue piercing" not a "tongue ring" and it means nothing other than she has and enjoys piercings and to think anything other than that is just wrong on your part.


Can you bleed to death from a tongue piercing?

Actually yes you can. Some people have a third vein running down the middle of their tongue and when one gets a tongue piercing it is done in the middle of the tongue. So when the needle pierces it it will bleed more than tongues w/o that third vein would. But you can still get a tongue piercing if you have that 3rd vein. All professional piercers know how to control bleeding. It's in their training

In tongue piercing more painful than industrial piercing?

No actually there are no pain receptors in the center of the tongue, they are all along the outside edge of the tongue to remind you not to bite your tongue. We are just piercing the center connective tissue between the two muscle complexes that make up the tongue so it quick simple and for the most part painless. The discomfort comes the 2nd and 3rd days post piercing when the swelling can be a bit painful and annoying. If you follow the instructions provided to you by your professional body piercer you should do just fine.

Is there anything to do with your tongue that would stop you getting it pierced?

Answer 1: The main concern is not to hit major veins. It's harder (more painful, and maybe riskier for some people) to get one's tongue pierced RIGHT SMACK DAB in the middle, rather than slightly off-center, so most people get it slightly off-center. If you want a tongue WEBBING piercing, you need to have a sufficiently webbed tongue (I did not; so sad). And, of course, if you were a hemophiliac, terrified of pain, or super-prone to infection or, I dunno, heart attacks in reaction to pain, then you might want to avoid a tongue piercing.

Does it matter how large your tongue is in order to pierce it?

When you go to book your appointment have the piercer look at your tongue before hand to tell you if there is enough free room for a tongue piercing. If you are told there is not enough room, then take that as fact and find something else to get done. Be aware that there are some less than reputable piercers who will attempt to pierce a tongue that just doesn't have the safe room for a piercing. This can cause damage to the gums and teeth more than a standard tongue piercing would cause.
