A 15 year old girl from UK was in news* recently for getting her tongue pierced. Due to profuse bleeding she had to be rushed to a hospital and now the girl has trouble speaking clearly. Before you get your tongue pierced, know the right way of going about it.
Tongue piercing is perhaps more popular than labret piercing, especially among teenagers who don’t want to get caught with an upfront piercing. So if you are one of those bitten by the piercing bug and ready to go under the needle, read through the simple steps below:
- Always go to a certified piercer and don’t lie about your age! Even if your mind is all ready to take the plunge think about your body. There’s a reason why there is an age limit for body piercing.
- Use nickel free body jewelry to minimize the risk of infections and other allergies.
- Follow the body piercer’s instructions instead thinking you know better. Now obviously you don’t argue with anyone with a needle but still hear out all the before and after instructions carefully and understand them.
- It’s better to go to a renowned piercing parlor with no bad press or lawsuits in its history.
Tongue piercing is cool so don’t make it look dreadful. Also don’t lose out on your gift of gab over an avoidable goof up.
