Tongue piercing, often referred to as an oral piercing, is the piercing directly through the center of the tongue. Tongue piercings use to be one of the most popular body piercings, but its popularity has been declining in the recent years. There are over ten different tongue piercing options for those who want to take it to the extremes, but the piercing through the center of the tongue, is the most common and safest method. Tongue piercing heals faster than many other piercings. It takes around 4-6 weeks for the piercing to completely heal, due to the saliva in the mouth that has the capability to fight many infections and bacteria.
Tongue Barbells are the most popular body jewelry that is used for tongue piercings. The barbells come in multiple colors and styles and is usually made from 316L surgical/stainless steel, acrylic, 14kt solid gold, etc.
