Today body piercing is becoming
something of a status symbol in
contemporary society. High quality
steel and other material just means
that your options boil down to a
simple choice of whether one wants
to do tongue piercing or not. Tongue
piercing saw its birth around the
1980’s. Generally rings are not used
but then it all depends on what your
personal taste and style quotient
is. If you are going in for tongue
rings then it is best to get
professional advice and ensure that
you go to a qualified person to get
it done. This way you get what you
want and you don’t get the
associated problems that go with
this type of work.


Tongue piercing
also goes by
names like tongue ring etc which is
a bit of a misnomer as very rarely
are rings worn. Paired or tongue
piercing that is side by side is
also commonly known as venom
piercing or viper bites, with
reference to the fangs of a snake.
Ritual tongue piercing has been
noticed in the Aztec and Maya
cultures where there are
illustrations showing priests
piercing the tongue and drawing
blood or passing rough cords through
the hole which is designed to
inflict pain. However there is no
evidence of permanent or long-term
tongue piercing in the culture.

Once
you get the piercing done, remember
that swelling occurs approx three to
seven days after and it can get
really uncomfortable. Your best bet
to numb the discomfort a little bit
is to have lots of cold drinks, suck
on ice cubes, etc. all of which help
to mitigate the swelling and
soreness, and Ibuprofen works very
well also. Keep in mind that the
swelling must be accommodated for by
using a longer piece of initial
jewelry, which can then be replaced
by a shorter piece of jewelry so
that the healed piercing prevents
damage to the teeth and gums.

Surgical stainless steel is the
ideal choice when it comes to metals
for tongue piercing. Stainless steel
rarely, if ever, causes any
irritation or allergic reactions at
the site of the piercing. The type
of stainless steel called 316L used
to make high quality stainless steel
tongue rings is the preferred
option, as this material does not
corrode that easily.

As with any radical style of
dressing, tongue rings too have
there own share of misconceptions
and myths which are in some part
true and others are pure fiction.
One of the most common
misconceptions going around about
tongue piercing is that since the
mouth is dirty the piecing will be
prone to frequent infections and
healing will be a long process. This
is true that that mouth has huge
amounts of bacteria but the saliva
is more that enough to counteract
this infection and it promotes
healing. Use of a mouthwash reduces
the chances of infection.

With piercing of any kind there is
always a minor risk of heavy
bleeding if a vein is hit; but if
you ensure that a qualified piercer
is doing a good job then there
should be no problem avoiding the
blood vessels. Some bleeding is of
course, normal but uncontrolled
bleeding must be checked by a proper
doctor. Be prepared to have your
tongue ring a bit off center, which
is due to the placement of the
frenulum dead center on the tongue.
Sometimes this crooked look can be
noticeable but more often than not
goes unnoticed.

Tooth and gum damage are risks
that can be minimized by correct
placement of the ring. Ensure that
jewelry used is sized correctly and
don’t play with the tongue ring. Too
big a ring may cause problems with
your teeth. The tongue has an
exceptional ability to heal fast so
piercing close quickly sometimes as
fast as a few days.

Stainless Steel tongue rings
will not rust or cause certain
problems like other traditionally
used alloys. Stainless steel
jewellery manufacturers ensure that
the steel used is high grade, non
magnetic and looks similar to
platinum but is a cheaper option.
Steel can also be molded and this
gives the manufacturers the option
of creating many designs and many
styles. If the concept is ok with
you and you are not the queasy kind
of person then go in for stainless
steel tongue rings. You will be
making a statement of your own.

Look up the net and you will find
stainless steel rings in a variety
of styles, shapes, sizes and brands.
There are styles to suit varied
personalities and you will also get
a lot of information on where to go
and what precautions you need to be
aware of. So flaunt your tongue
piercing with a stylized tongue ring
today!
