    Because I'm 18 and stupid,

    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...

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

    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...

    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...
