    Really fancy getting my tongue pierced. I've wanted it for about 8 years now but I'm absolutely useless with mouth pain. I turn into the grumpiest sod going haha. Also I'm not likely to get more than 2 days off together (absolute maximum) until well into the new year.. Is it worth getting when I'd have to go back to work the day after? And most importantly, will it interfere with all the festive foods I want to eat?!

    I'd wait until you've got a bit more time off, my swelling didn't really kick in until the day after I'd had it pierced. I could still eat normal food, just very slowly at first! It was actually more annoying after the swelling had gone down and before I had the shorter bar fitted, I kept catching mt teeth when I was eating eugh.
    Stabbings I still have
    Right ear
    : 2 x helix, conch & rook
    Left ear: helix, conch & tragus
    Tongue web, nostril, septum
    Triangle, VCH & 2 x outers

    I'd also wait, it's hard to know how you'll react tbh and make sure you get the bar downsized after a week, don't go waiting 2 weeks like most places tell you!

    I realised the other day so many places want you to have a stretched tongue piercing before a split. My mouth is tiny and I didn't cope well with a tongue piercing :'( I know some artists don't believe in the anchor point theory though so I may have to go see one of those.

    My nipple is very upset. Crusty and bloody. Don't remember catching it but maybe I did. I gave it a little squeeze and lots of lymph and blood came out. Washed it really well and put a open band aid over it to keep my shirt from getting bloody

    My helices are sore for no reason. My conch is sore for no reason. My nostril is sore, although that one has a reason (I accidentally yanked it when I was trying to scratch my nose at 4pm when I woke up to drink some water) Awww, little piercings, is the weather getting you down or something? It's been raining here for days.
