    Default Tongue web piercing - some questions

    Hello everyone,

    I'm becoming seriously interested in tongue web piercing. I've read a lot of old topics and diaries already existing here at the forum, but I'm still having some questions, so I'd like to hear your experiences.

    As far as I understood by now, it's a relatively easy and quick healer, which already makes me happy. But, as I am doing a job that basically requires speaking all-the-time (some days 6+ hours a day effectively, meaning non-stop), I thought of doing it in the summer, when I'm having a month break.

    So I'm basically having a couple of questions:
    - did anyone of you face a serious lisp a long time after the piercing was done? I guess when the swelling is down, your speech goes right back to normal, right?
    - is there anything I should absolutely avoid eating and for how long after the piercing?
    - would it be generally safe to travel 15-20 days after having it pierced? I would travel to the place where I don't have a piercing studio nearby (I would check where the nearest one is just in case) and I would stay there for two weeks. Is this a good idea at all?

    Thanks for all of your answers!

    An alternative is a so-called smiley or frenulum that I had in recent months has healed really easily - though I haven't yet changed its jewelry.

    No one should experience a serious problem with speech.
    Don't eat very spicy/salty/citrus foods for as long as it's healing.
    Travelling after 2-3 weeks should be fine as long as you're not having any problems.

    Thank you, Hazel! You've basically covered all my questions.

    Unassuming, I am specifically interested in tongue web piercing, providing of course that I am anatomically suited for it, I hope I am. But thanks for the suggestions.
