Tongue web piercing goes through the webbing right under the tongue â€“ you know, the one which becomes visible when you lift up your tongue.
They say that the healing process is quite fast and usually no complications are observed â€“ of course, if you adhere to the proper tongue piercing aftercare advice.
And it all makes sense because the small web under the tongue is a tiny little piece of tissue and no wonder it heals fast.
However, one thing puzzles me when I see the tongue web piercing. Namely â€“ whoâ€™s going to see this piercing if you donâ€™t lift up your tongue? We get body piercings so that the others would see them, right? And even if you have a genital piercing you donâ€™t have to lift up any flop of skin so that the piercing becomes visibleâ€¦
Anyway, there are folks who have this kind of tongue piercing and most likely it comes with a combination with other piercings. You know â€“ just to make fun and boast to friends to have a body piercing they donâ€™t have.
Well, on the other hand, the fact that no-one is going to see your tongue web piercing can be actually an advantage. Letâ€™s assume you really want some facial or oral body piercing. But you have a job, for example, where the companyâ€™s policy forbids wearing body jewelry. Even the usual tongue ring may be noticed by your boss.
So this is when the tongue web piercing comes handy. No-one on Earth will tell you that you have your tongue pierced and sure you wonâ€™t lift up your tongue when speaking to your boss, will you?
Oh yes, if youâ€™re probably wondering if the tongue web piercing has been recorded in the ancient cultures and tribes â€“ the answer is: â€˜noâ€™. There are no recordings known to us that someone before the 90ies would have their tongue web piercedâ€¦
