How a tongue piercing affects your speech
If I get a standard tongue piercing, approximately how long will I be talking like a moron?

I spoke normally from day one.
So really, its impossible for us to say how long it'll take you/whether you'll have a lisp etc.
I found the more talking I did, the more my tongue swelled up and the sorer it got though.

It was about a week/week and a half for me it was only really bad on the second and third days after it was just a bit of lisp.Hiya, I'm Lynn (:
