Tongue Piercing has a long history, being present in ancient times. The Aztec and Mayan culture included Tongue Piercings, but the decoration of it mostly emerged during the 80s, after Elayne Angel pioneered and brought popularity to this piercing.
The piercing is traditionally performed in the middle of the tongue, where the gap between the two tongue muscles is. It is not sore during the piercing procedure, but it can be painful afterwards if one doesn’t follow the piercers instructions. No need to stress though, they are easy to follow and the piercing will heal quickly due to the high blood flow of the area.
Charlie calls this a playful piercing, as you will find out playing with it can offer a kind of stress relief and joy. However, one must be mindful of their teeth and gums. And of course, no movement or play during the healing period.
Tongue Piercing can be a private piercing if one wishes, as it is easy to hide by keeping ones tongue inside the mouth.
Healing would take on average three to six weeks, but each person heals differently.
