    Third Time's a Charm

    I've pierced my tongue three times.  The first time I could only keep it in for about 24 hours and the pain and the swelling were just too much.  The second time I made it to about 72 hours.  Finally, on the third time I had about a dozen vicodin on hand and would...

    I got it done very shortly

    after I turned 18. I got it because of a girl. I figured if I hated it I could just take it out and it would heal. Ended up liking it and it sort of stuck for me because I was quiet in school so no one expected it which made for interesting conversation. Finally got to put it to...

    I got my tongue pierced about a year ago.

    It hurt like hell for the first week, but after the swelling went down I really started getting used to it in my mouth. I just love how it looks and feels, and the ladies find it cute too. I have also developed a bad habit of playing with it lol. Not sure if I will keep it...

    Since I Was 13

    I promised my self I would get it done and when I was 19 I did. I am very happy with it and I am lucky because it doesn't touch my teeth at all, but because I look after my teeth I have plastic balls on it just incase instead of metal.

    I Got Mine Done When I Was 14.

    I had just turned 14 and talked my mother into letting me get it pierced! It wasn't painful whatsoever, until it swelled twice its size and I couldn't eat anything but applesauce for two weeks and lost 15 pounds hahaha. And I talked like an idiot. Well worth it though! I think...

    Just Another Kid With One But

    I've done my research, I've seen images and heard horror stories, and I guess I got the Ace in this deck of cards. It's day nine, and instead of a no pain pierce and a god awful healing process, I had a really bad pain in piercing it, and after a couple hours no pain. Till now I...

    19 Years Old.

    I was 19 years old when I got my tongue pierced. Not many people had their tongue pierced when I did. I thought it was different and I loved that fact. Now, it's almost normal to have your tongue pierced. It's not different. Everyone has them. I will never take mine out because...

    Senior Year of Hs

    Got this done with my BFF (however long that lasts when you’re 17). We lied about our age to the piercer, and he didn’t even check out IDs. Ended up ******* off the parental units. Lost my job (but got hired back because they “needed” me). Still have it to...

    Summer of 2005

    It was after my last year of high school. I got it done at a tattoo parlor by my church. I'm not gonna lie. It hurt. My eyes teared up a bit. I think I even drooled a little bit. My tongue got a little swollen, but not too much. I drank lots and lots of ice water for the next...

    I absolutely love having my tongue pierced. Got it when I was 18 and never looked back. Never meet a man or women who didn't like have someone with a tongue ring.

    Because I'm 18 and stupid,

    I got my tongue pierced by my friend the other day. Luckily for me, the friend has an actual piercing kit and did his own piercing as well, so I'm not actually feeling too bad. It hurts to talk too much, but that just gives me an excuse to not talk to my family. I'm still rather...

    My tongue piercing was the first non-ear piercing I ever got. I was 17 at the time and living with my mother who had a few piercings herself at one point. I asked her if it was cool if I got it done and she said yes. So she took me and signed for it. This somewhat started my...

    One of My Sexiest Piercings.

    I had my tongue pierced at a whim, when I was seventeen. Call it teenage rebellion, call it self-harm, call it whatever you want. All I knew was that when I got it, it'd make me feel a lot better about myself. I like piercings, in all forms ( I ...

    Got my tongue pierced awhile back.

    My sobriety at the time of this picture (3 hours after getting it pierced) is questionable.
