Not all tongues are the same and with that in mind as the tongue gets longer the tongue also gets thicker which mean the piercer must account for the thickness when selecting a correct initial barbell for the piercing. Swelling can cause serious issues during the healing process and the barbell must be long enough to account for the swelling.
