Can you drink alcohol after getting your tongue pierced?
Wait a few days... The last thing you want to do is irritate an open wound in the first hours of it healing. But avoid drinking beer for the duration of the healing period. Consuming beer with an open tongue wound could lead to a oral yeast infection known as Thrush.

What Not to Do After a Tongue Piercing . That limitation depends on mainly you. Now if your talking sex, that then would depend on your partner, some people dig it some people dont. Anyway, its strictly a personal choice that you have to live with after its done and your friends and family should… accept and respect your decision to put a hole in your tongue.. ________________________. Immediately after the piercing is done (and this should be told to you at the time if it's not then you would be wise to find a different artist); no oral sex, no kissing, no activity that would allow others bodily fluids to come in contact with your tongue, no spicy food, no yeasty foods, no beer, no swimming, be gentle with your piercing, no playing with it and no removing the jewelry for the first month. For the first week you should abide by all of the above AND; no hard solid foods, no hot drinks, little to no soda, twice daily cleaning with alcohol-free mouth wash and if you feel it would help (I do) one 15 minute salt-water soak per day (iodine free sea-salt is best). After one month then you really only need to abstain from oral sex and others bodily fluids after 3 months then you should be safe to engage in anything you please.. (MORE)
I would ask your piercer, but if it were me I would wait a littlebit.
Is it normal for a tongue piercing to hurt so bad that it is very difficult for you to chew drink and talk a few days after getting it pierced?

(MORE)
you should eat and drink alot of cold stuff, like ice cream, ice, ice cold water and so on.. you shouldn't eat or drink hot stuff like soup, hot sauce, hot tea, and so on............... DON"T EAT ANYTHING WITH MILK IN IT!!!! can lead to a yeast infection in your mouth. this includes ice cream, che…ese, i guess yogurt, milk (of course), and anything milk related. (MORE)
Stay away from beer because of the yeast used to make it. It will grow into a yeast infection.
Throughout the United States, the legal age for getting a piercingis 18. People between the ages of 13 and 18 can sometimes get abody piercing with parental consent, depending on local regulationsand the piercing professionals' policy.
You need to lay off of alchohol for 4 weeks after getting your tongue pierced. Alcohol slows down the healing process, and can also cause flare ups.
Of course! You have to, if you don't you won't be able to say your s's and other letters. You'll talk like: Hi i thike (like) you thog (dog) where did thoo (you) get it? You get the point. When you get your tongue pierced, talk, sing, do whatever you can that makes noise from your mouth. Scream do W…HATEVER! Yeah you can talk but it hurts kind of and you'll pronounce some word funny. But you should try talking alot singing stuff like that so you can get your voice back to normal as soon as possible (: (MORE)
HELLL NO! if you take care of it , then you will not have an infection but dying....i dont think so!
You want to keep the talking down to a minimum during the first few days just to prevent en flaming your tongue further.
you should not drink alcohol until about 1-2 weeks after you get your tongue pierced; as alcohol will slow the healing process by killing important bacteria that actually help the piercing heal. it is best to only drink beer or no alcohol at all until this time period has passed.
i got my tongue done when i was 14 x . its not sore at all x . infact getting my teeth dunn was wose lol x . GO FURR IT
Well this is a new one, alcohol consumption can be done anytime after getting your navel pierced.
it's really not advised before your piercing has had a chance to heal properly..same goes for mouthwash, if it has an alcohol content. if you do drink alcohol BEFORE it's healed, you can induce an infection, and some nasty swelling
YES! DEFINATELY! REALITY CHECK - It just depends on who you ask. Everyone is going to have an opinion, you just have to decide whether or not you care what other people think. Some people actually think tongue piercings are cool, and others won't hire you if you have your tongue pierced. Figure… out for yourself how the idea of a pierced tongue makes you feel. (MORE)
Right after as long as you drink hard liquor, nothing with yeast such as beer.
Go to a medical treatment center, hospital, doctor without delay. The tongue is the strongest muscle in the human body, with that being said, an infection could be life threatening and needs to be treated before it becomes septic.
Most people do, but I'm not sure if its healthy or not. I don't see how it would be though.
I have had clients who have gone out that night and done a little drinking. It comes down to common sense, you don't want to be over doing it. Alcohol dehydrates the body and will make swelling a bigger issue than it already is. If you choose to go out have the bar maid bring you some ice water, suc…k on the ice through out the evening and try not to over do. Some will go off about yeast and infections, well that is a load of BS and nothing to be concerned about. The yeast in beer and bread are not of the same type to cause a yeast infection. But things you do need to remember is don't hyper extend your tongue to show it off, this will annoy your tongue and the piercing, promoting inflammation and swelling. Cold water rinse any time you smoke or eat anything, cold stuff as often as possible to help keep the swelling down. Original Listerine and other mouth washes should only be done twice a day, in the morning and before bed. Sea salt rinses may help, but can be tasteless and gross and really don't do much for the piercing so that's up to you. Just use common sense with food and aftercare, nothing too spicy or too hot or foods that involve a lot of chewing for the first 4 or 5 days. Dairy products are something you should avoid, yogurt and ice cream are not a good due to the residue they leave behind which can also promote swelling. Just use your head and everything should be good. Ibuprofen and midol or Advil for oral use to reduce swelling may be a good idea as well. (MORE)
Cold sores are a variant of the Herpes virus, however getting them from a professionally done tongue piercing, No.
Yes you can however be careful the hot coffee will conduct heat quickly into the barbell so be sure you sipp the coffee slowly. Once you are done you will need to rinse with you oral aftercare rinse "coffee will leave a residue on your tongue".
No, it's strongly recommended not to smoke or drink alcohol for at least two weeks after getting it pierced. The body will work harder to protect itself from the alcohol and cigarettes - rejecting the piercing in the process. Not to mention that i would imagine that would hurt on a fresh wound!. I …smoked and drank after about a week of having mine done even though i was told two weeks, it had healed enough to mean that it didnt get infected or anything horrible, but i did have to wait another week for the swelling to go down enough for them to change down my bar. (MORE)
Umm Well Ive Had Mine Done About A Week Ishh I Was Expecting It To Hurt Realy Bad But They Numbed It It Tasted Like Banana's Lol And Then You Dribble Like Everywhere... I Closed My Eyes When Having Mine Done I Couldnt Tell When She Pierced It It Was My Most Painless Piercing Yet Like Too…k 5 Seconds And I Love It Soo Dont Worry. Hope That Helped =) (MORE)
Right after the piercing do not drink any beer for at least 2 days because the yeast can cause a horrible infection, although I would personally recommend 10 to be safe. However I believe hard alcohol is fine. Good luck!
Infections, side effects and healing issues are all points you need to discuss with your professional body piercer BEFORE you get the piercing done. You also need to discuss aftercare for the piercing, this should be followed up with written aftercare instructions for your piercing. No professional …body piercer will force you to purchase aftercare products, this is a purchase that is up to you and they can only recommend specific products but they can force you to buy what they have. Listen to what you are told and follow the aftercare to the letter and remember if you are having issues with bumps and lumps or discharge go back to the shop that did the piercing and talk to the piercer. They must help you resolve any healing issues you may be having. Don't solicit advice from anyone who is not a professional body piercer, just because one thing worked for someone else doesn't mean it will work for you. Healing issues need to be looked at first hand so the problem can be recognised and resolved, the Internet is just a guessing game. (MORE)
Yes, the piercer might ask you if you want it numbing. You can take this option, as it wont hurt as much, but remember it will still hurt as the inside of your tongue is not numbed.
No! It's going to hurt like hell, and then can slow the healing process... Wait a month or so! I know from personal experience haha
As long as everything is sterile, and you relax your tongue and don't move it when they pierce it. By a good, safe, professional piercer? Yes. Otherwise - No. Some people's tongues may not be suitable (based on how their veins go, etc.) or the person him/herself might not be a good candidate (like i…f the person is a hemophiliac!) and a good piercer would refuse to pierce such a tongue/person. (MORE)
Sure you can just don't go out and be an idiot when you are out drinking, here's the skinny on drinking and tongue piercings. When you drink you dehydrate your self, you also seem to be fearless and do silly things like show everyone your tongue piercing. It's the hyper extension of the tongue in co…ncert with over drinking and dehydration that makes the next day and all new sense of hell for your tongue. The swelling could be off the chart if you get carried away. So be smart eat before your get the piercing done (about and hour to an hour and a half before), if you go for a drink get the bar maid to get you a glass of ice water to help keep the swelling down during your visit (pop ice in your mouth and let it melt). Just be smart don't get too carried away, stay hydrated with water between drinks and have some fun. Keep the showing it off for a few days down the road, if you have seen one pierced tongue you have seen a dozen. (MORE)
Well unless you did the piercing yourself, the chances your tongue is getting infected from it being done by a professional body piercer working in a licensed and inspected shop is slim to nil. The only way a professionally done piercing will get infected is through client abuse or neglect, failure …to maintain correct aftercare and personal hygiene is the only means that will cause an infection. So if you ignore your piercing, fail to keep it clean and fail to follow your written aftercare instructions, yes you will wind up with and infection. But you will never wind up with an infection from a professionally performed body piercing. (MORE)
Yes Chamomile tea is a natural anti inflammatory and will help take the swelling down, however I suggest you drink it in Ice Tea format so it can help cool the piercing as well. hot beverages should be avoided or at least allowed to cool before drinking.
While its healing, your tongue will swell and you will have a lisp. it isn't permanent though. Only while healing when your tongue is swollen. So don't get it if you'll have to go to work or school in the next few days.
Really I wouldn't think it matters. Just be sure to use mouthwash several times a day to kill any germs that could cause an infection
You can drink anything as long as it doesn't have yeast in it like beers and dark alcohols. If you do you can get a yeast infection in your mouth. I just got mine done and I'm playing it safe because who wants a yeast infection in your mouth. So check the ingredients and be careful.
No real reason, nothing to worry about. Alot of people who barely even drink alcohol get this sensation when drinking. If the numbness doesn't go away, seek medical attention or just don't drink.
The only negative side effects that come to mind are tooth chipping from biting down on jewelry ( plastic ends will basically do away with this risk) and gum erosion behind your teeth. You can wear a smaller ball on the bottom to reduce the risk of gum erosion but sometimes it just cant be helped.
When I got mine pierced, the piercer told me I can drink clear alcohols (think vodka ) but to avoid colored alcohol like beer and such. I think its because the ingredients in the colored alcohol, like the yeast in beer, can cause infection. I had to wait a month before I could drink beer and whatno…t. Hope this helps! (MORE)
rinse your mouth out with water and just keep your eye on it, should be fine. You can always call the professional who pierced your tongue if anything should seem odd. chances are, your tongue would be swollen now so, ice and water should take care of you! :)
If the alcholic drink does not have any form of yeast in it then yes u can
Alcohol is a blood thinner and it increases swelling around the piercing and bleeding. But, its advised that you drink only clear alcohol. Not sure why.
Alcohol is a blood thinner so it increases bleeding and swelling. It just makes it more uncomfortable and delays healing.
You'll delay healing. Delayed healing= more pain, more time before you can switch to a smaller bar, and increased risk of infection.
When you first get it done, you might not be able to use a straw. The sucking action makes your tongue touch the roof of your mouth and can hurt. But, you could just pour it in there. You wanna hold off on caffeine and alcohol for at least a week. After that, try to stick to clear alcohol for a whil…e. Slushies and smoothies work wonders but you have to use a spoon to eat them. (MORE)
No, you can't. Alcohol is a blood thinner so it affects the way your body heals wounds. Which is what a piercing is. Wait at least a week to be safe.
wait at least six weeks so as to give your tongue a chance to completely heal
Drinking alcohol before the piercing has healed may result in pain as the alcohol irritates your tissue. It isn't toxic, and it shouldn't interfere with the healing of the piercing. After the piercing has healed, there should be no problems or inconveniences related to drinking alcohol, even red …wine. (MORE)
If its still bleeding, no. Alcohol is a blood thinner so it can increase bleeding from the piercing. I've also heard that you should stick with clear alcoholic drinks during healing but I've never seen sufficient proof for that so I dont know how reliable that is.
It isn't advisable to drink alcohol for at least a week after getting any piercing because it thins the blood and can leave the open piercing susceptible to infections.
Any time your skin is pierced, there can be an infection, because bacteria can get in through the hole in the skin, until it heals. Tongues are particularly vulnerable because there is usually a lot of bacteria in the mouth, as a result of the food that passes through, and the saliva, which creates …an environment in which bacteria can live. Dry skin is more resistant to infection than wet skin, for this reason. So yes, tongue piercing is risky, and I would strongly recommend against it. You do not need to take that kind of risk. (MORE)
Tongue piercings can cause gum/enamel erosion, both of which are irreversible. However, this can be avoided/helped by positioning the piercing correctly and wearing proper jewelry. Its also possible to chip your teeth on the ball- this can be helped by wearing acrylic balls. Of course, there are the… same risks that come with any piercing- infection, scarring. So while tongue piercings can cause problems, there are ways to handle said problems, so its just a matter of if you're willing to take care of that and be prepared if you do encounter problems.
