    Default 5mm tongue piercing

    I used to have 3 centre tongue piercings but the back one migrated all the way to the middle one leaving me with one big hole and a normal hole at the front.

    I haven't been regularly wearing any jewellery in the big hole as the usual 5mm balls I wear in my tongue studs can go right through the big hole.

    Then I thought - just get a 5mm diameter bar!

    Now ordered and can't wait to try it out. My first larger gauge piercing.

    I've no idea why it has taken me so long (over a year) to think if it.

    I imagine it will probably be a bit big for every day wear as anything bigger than 5mm balls used to annoy me but it will be fun for temporary wear.

    Look forward to some pics soon!

    I didn't even know that a Tongue piercing could migrate!

    Neither did I.

    Although having seen how easy it looks to do a tongue split with fishing line/dental floss, it doesn't surprise me.

    So, 5mm bar arrived.

    It's scary!

    I've always admired large gauge piercings on others but the biggest I have ever worn is 1.6mm.

    Anyway, it slips in easily. Feels heavy but in a nice way.
    Not sure I will wear it all the time as I think it would be a tooth wrecker but it's very cool to be part of the large gauge club.

    Pics soon I promise.

    Any plans for a split?

    I'll take some photos by the by, haven't thought about a split no, fear would be too extreme - though think it's sexy as hell
