Web Piercing

Web piercing is a piercing done on a frenulum, a thin piece of tissue that secures and restricts the motion of a body part. There are various webs of this type in a human body but only some of these are important for piercings. Some web tissue can be pierced and while these piercings are not among the most popular ones they are relatively common. The most popular frenulum piercings are the ones done on the frenulum of the tongue, the one on the upper lip, the one on the lower lip and the one on the foreskin of the penis.

Out of all web piercings, tongue web piercing is the most common one. With this piercing, a hole is made in the thin tissue that connects the underside of the tongue with the floor of the mouth. This is different than a frowny piercing, which is done on the frenulum of the lower lip. Tongue web piercing is easy to perform since tissue is very thin at this place and doesn’t have many blood vessels. However, this piercing is prone to migration and rejection so this is something you need to keep in mind. Another thing to worry about is potential injury to gums, teeth and tongue, though this is not common.
