    Default toungue question

    how long can a toungue bar be out before it can't go back in again? i've only had mine pierced two weeks and i have a meeting on tuesday and will have to take it out for about an hour and a half...would it close up? also is it too soon to get my lip pierced? and to wear a plastic retainer on my toungue?

    i'd prob say it was best to get a retainer from your piercer and get them to change it if your not sure? i wouldnt leave it out that soon cos when you try putting the bar in again it'll feel really tight and will probably irritate it again and it may become inflamed - but i suppose this all depends on how well your tongue has healed.

    prob best to leave nu piercings for a while and give your body a bit of tme to recover from the last one.

    If you have had your tongue pierced for only 2 weeks then it will shut after about 20 mins if your lucky, plus you shouldnt be taking it in and out yet as it disrupts the healing . You could get a retainer but they arenot all that good and fall out a lot of the time anyway.
