    Gauge is the size of the jewelry.. You want to stretch it.. Id say go for it if you want it. But i think it would suck after awhile to have a hole in your tongue after you take the piercing out

    Want : Apadravya, Vertical Labret, 4mm Lobes, and Eyebrow

    Why would we care? If you can't make that decision on your own then you probably shouldn't do it

    Stretch it by all means. You don't gauge piercings.

    It still gets me how testy this forums become...

    Stretch your Tongue by all means. As long as your not aiming for massive sizes your Tongue will return quite quickly to its original state. I wouldn't recommend using Tapers, its very sore and more likely to cause problems and scaring. Go up a size when your Tongue is ready and don't force it.

    A Tongue piercing no matter how well placed can cause problems within your mouth with regards to your Jaw, Teeth and Gums. So if you increase the size you are only going to increase the chances of damage to the delicate tissues around the Teeth and the Enamel which protects them.

    I might stretch mine a little. It's 1.6 at the moment. I don't want a huge hole to be filled with a plug, but maybe less cheese wire effect.
    old piercings :( 5mm (4ga) lobes (pierced at 4mm/6ga), tongue (1.6mm/14ga)

    Personally, I love the look of stretched piercings. I've had my tongue piercing about two and a half years now, it's at 1.6mm. But, I can't imagine anything more annoying for a piercing than a stretched tongue. I find it irritating sometimes at 1.6mm, especially if I have a sore throat or cold. It's totally up to you, as long as you don't go to a very large size it will shrink and tongues are quick healers. But personally I think it would just feel like a pain in the ass. I've already chipped my teeth and I don't even play with my tongue bar so stretching up would just increase that risk.
