tongue piercing

yay i finally got with the girl i like for a long time! but heres the thing....she wants to get a tongue piercing and i dont really want her to. i dont think it matches her in any way, dont like the idea of having a hole in her tongue, and it will potentially add more problems (health wise). she have been wanting it for a long time and think it is cool. is there any suggestions about convincing her not to get a tongue pierced?

Re: tongue piercing

I can sort of understand why you don't want her to get one. Tongue piercings give people the wrong idea. I'm 21 and I had my tongue pierced for a couple years until I realized that most people in the world think you get it pierced for sexual reasons... Anyway, I would just tell her what you think. And if she does decide to pierce it at least make sure she goes to a decent piercer. There are two veins that run down your tongue and it is CRUCIAL that the piercer finds out where they are because if they get pierced then her tongue will never be the same again. Also, there was a girl not too long ago in my area who had her tongue pierced and it somehow caused a tumour in her brain. I saw a picture of her in the paper and it freaked me out. So anyway, just make sure she knows the risk. And the first week that it takes to heal is a pain in the ***. You can't eat a single thing because your tongue swells up so much.

Re: tongue piercing

Actually not everyone has swelling for a week or problems eating.
I know after I had mine done I was eating soft tacos at Taco Bell about an hour afterwards. Yes one has to be careful and go to someone who has experience and a clean place. Also following the rules of after care is extremely important.
