    Default Taste Loss Tip of Tongue After Piercing

    Hello All!

    This is my first post ever to this site, and I am a bit of a novice in the area of piercings, so take it easy on me!

    Last Friday (6 days ago) I got my tongue pierced. It was a bucket list thing, and overall I really like the look of it.

    For the first few days, there was the typical swelling you'd expect, along with a tingling, almost burnt-tongue feeling at the tip of my tongue, and I couldn't taste there.
    Now, most of the swelling has gone down, and the burnt feeling is gone. However, I still cannot taste at the tip of my tongue. I can taste everywhere behind the piercing, but not there. I went to the shop and they said it was normal, but I want some opinions from people who may share the experience.

    Should I be worried?

    Also, will the lisp go away soon?

    Thank you!

    I think everyone is different, and some may experience this sort of thing, while others won't.

    I'm one that has all my taste buds intact, despite the fresh double tongue piercing lol.

    I honestly can't remember. It's just one of those things, whilst your tongue is going through healing some aspects can go a bit odd, same with any piercing. It wont happen to everyone but it's nothing to be alarmed about. If it's still bothering you after 2-3 weeks go have a chat with your piercer again.
