i woke up in the morning and it hurt like shit. i guess my tongue swells alot when i sleep.
mine too. especially after drinking
yeah mine has been swelling when i go out drinking too
got it pierced on friday
123 yours is still really new. You will probably be swollen for a bit longer. Try to be careful with it when its in this stage.
Furner, are you sure its swelling and just not that you are pressing your tongue into a weird position when u sleep? I have a friend that had to finally take hers out because at night she would sort of press her tongue up into the roof of her mouth and would wake up with horrible pains in her tonuge/roof of mouth. Maybe you are just doing something strange when you sleep?
12345678, go ahead and get shitfaced. The only damage that can do is when you lose control of your tongue cause you hammed.
that might be, but i think that my tongue just swells when i get horizontal. i usually wear a 5/8 and its pretty comfortable, the 1/2 isnt tight on my tongue during the day, but its not nearly as loose as the 5/8. my theory is that when i sleep my tongue fills with more blood than when i am awake.
when you sleep you dehydrate which causes swelling. nothing to do with blood going to your tongue. keep a bottle/glass of water beside your bed at night and if you wake up just take a few sips of it.
you my friend are a genius and are the reason us professional piercers start to hate the general public.
your piercer should have told you to lay off the drinking for a week or so. you should follow his rules and you wouldnt have problems healing your tongue
I wear a 5/8 90% of the time, I wake up from sleep with a 1/2" and have pits in my tongue. ugh
A week after I got my tongue pierced I ended up drinking quite a bit, and then someone got out the everclear. I was drunk and it seemed like a good idea... I liked a drop that went down the side of my glass, and it burned so badly. Worse than the piercing for sure
i just did a search for my name about somethign else and found this.
My piercer said ti was fine to drink, as long as it wasn't beer, just hard liquor.
So, any idiot moves i made, are a result of his advice
Everything turned out fine though.
hard liquor may cause slight drying, which is why they suggest using an alcohol-free mouthwash for aftercare.
also, drunk people tend to do dumb things, and a fresh tongue piercing can easily get irritated/fucked up because a drunk person forgets how to use their freshly modified mouth.
its been a while since i started this thread, and now i wear a 1/2 all day and all night without problems, except for a recent irritation that i got yesterday from playing too rough with my tongue
on the whole i think that now that i have healed some more the 1/2" is fine. and i do drink more water at night now, thanks AB
i've had a ½' 8 gauge in my tongue for 4 years now, before that it was a ½' 10 guage for at least two years. mines actually a little loose, but i have a small mouth
i didn't say i was going out and getting shittered
