I've got 31 piercings in all.  24 in my left ear, 6 in my right.  And I wear a 4ga in my tongue.  I celebrate the 10 year anniversary of my tongue piercing next week.  In the 10 years since that piercing, I have only had one other - a second piercing to my tongue which I took out due to tearing/pain as the two barbells were too much for my mouth.  I've thought about getting more, but my career is at a point where it wouldn't be wise and prudent.

Yes, quite a bit. Talking and eating were causing the bar to remain inflamed and not heal, as well as begin tearing. Within a week i took it out as it was noticeably damaging my tongue.

the two simultaneous tongue piercings sounded painful... ! Did it affect your speech significantly?
