Just thought I would post this for anyone interested in downsizing a large gauge tongue piercing.

I have a 5mm tongue piercing - created when two regular tongue piercings migrated together.
I don't wear it all the time as I find it a bit cumbersome and heavy.

I now can't get a 5mm bar in it and have gone down to 4mm.

So, tongue piercings shrink although it wasn't really a problem without jewellery at 5mm.

I'm hoping to get back up to 5mm as it was a nice size so will be wearing my 4mm bar more often.
