MAIN HASSLES: The worst part of the Tongue piercing is the swelling in the first 3-5 days which makes eating and speech difficult. A change in diet is needed to reduce swelling. We suggest cutting down on your intake of alcohol, tobacco, spicy foods, and ingesting other harass items. Also, cross-contamination prevention is needed(such as no deep mouth kissing for 8 weeks). Due to swelling the piercing is performed with a longer barbell and needs to be reduced asap.
