Just Got My 11th Piercing (tongue)So anyways about 6 days ago I went and got my tongue pierced. The pain I would have to give a 9/10, the same as my belly button piercing. I honestly didn't think it was going to hurt that badly but it did (I will post another story about all of my piercings, their pain scales and healing experiences after this.) Um so anyways the piercer was very nice and very quick, it felt to me like he went from the bottom up but my boyfriend says otherwise. lOl I wasn't nervous at all since I have like 10 other piercings but as soon as that needle went through I wanted to cry, it wasn't as painless as I had expected and I definitely wouldn't go through it again for anything.
Afterwards my boyfriend took me to get Starbucks, they make their frappacinos with milk and I guess it's not good to have dairy after a tongue piercing so I got an iced tea, it felt so good but it was hard sipping through the straw at first but I got the hang of it. There has been little to no swelling at all which is good. I've been taking ibuprofen throughout the days and it controls the pain very well. The first 2 days were a nightmare, couldn't eat at all but by day 4 i was eating cheetos and day 5 I ate Chinese food. It was hard not to bite on the tongue ring but I got some food in my system.
Today is day 6 and I haven't attempted to eat anything yet but I think we are having pizza tonight so I'm gonna attempt that :). There is no swelling at all and I don't feel the need to use mouthwash as often as the past 5 days. As far as dairy goes, I try to minimize my consumption but when I do have something dairy I mouthwash immediately afterwards. Also the spicy Chinese food had no negative effect on my tongue at all luckily :)
Well Idk I think that's it about my tongue piercing. Check back later to read about my other piercing experiences. XD
