No way that's nerve damage for your own sake get it removed immediately. Get to the doctor now . I am one.

One thing the "doctor" didn't think of is trauma. Sometimes, your brain will block pain completely by making a certain area of your body numb. I would wait a day or two but if feeling does not come back I would remove the piercing and then wait another day or two and if still no feeling then you need to see a doctor.

Is numbness at the tip of your tongue normal after a tongue piercing?

Well generally with the post piercing swelling, it's hard to tell what is considered normal. In a standard center line tongue piercing, placed approx 3/4" back from the tip of the tongue normal even swelling is to be expected. In the center line piercing you are only piercing connective tissue that joins the right and left sides of the tongue. So the possibility of nerve damage is fairly low (note I am not saying "no risk", there is always a risk when piercing the tongue, but I am talking about a professionally performed piercing) If you have any other form of tongue piercing then the risk becomes even higher, so numbness and possible permanent damage is a real ever present risk. The tongue is the strongest muscle in the human body and a very important one at that, so serious thought needs to be put into getting a piercing before actually getting it done to ensure you are making a good decision. Once it's pierced, there is no way to repair the damage done to it, it's a one shot deal and there is no turning back.


When the tip of your tongue gets pierced is it suppose to get numb?

No, it should not be numb.Most piercers make you sign a disclosure releasing them from responsibility should any injury or issues happen during the piercing. In the case of a tongue piercing, my piercer told me before she started that there are nerves that run through the tongue, and there is a chance that the piercing could injure or sever one of these nerves, and she made sure I was fully aware of this risk before we proceeded. It is therefore likely that there is nerve damage in your tongue.I would recommend you do not remove the piercing and contact your physician to ascertain what is causing the numbness. It is likely that the numbness will be permanent if nerve damage is involved.

Can you numb your tongue before piercing it?

Yes, with ice. But ice will only numb it for a little while. O.k., sure you can use ice or 1% lidocaine, which I do not suggest. but why bother?? In all actuality the tongue is the least painful of all the piercings... Yeah, I know, "But when I bite my tongue, it hurts so bad!!"you say....But where do you bite your tongue??? You bite it on the sides or the tip, not the middle where it's gonna be pierced....In the middle of the tongue you actually have many more taste bud nerve endings than pain nerve endings....The reason you have more pain endings there is so that you dont chew your tongue off during R.E.M. times while you sleep. And besides the tongue is a muscle not skin, and the numbing agent will only numb the surface, not all the way through.........Hope this helps.....

Can you pierce your tongue with an ear piercer?

No. The ear piercing gun and stud are designed to be used on earlobes only. The tongue is a complex group of two major muscles joined by connective tissue and convered by over 10,000 tastebuds and pain receptors. Tongue piercing is intended to go between the muscle groups at least* (*at minimum) to a depth of 3/4 of an inch from the tip of the tongue. The ear piercing gun will not have the reach nor will the studs be long enough to allow for the swelling the will take place after the piercing is done.

If iam tongue tied can you get your tongue pierced like a inch away from the tip?

Lets understand the issue of being tongue tied, tongue tied means having and over developed frenial web connecting the bottom of the tongue to the bottom of the mouth. If this web is too long and reached the tip of the tongue then tongue piercing can't be done safely. Piercing the tongue to one side of the web or the other will not resolve the issue and can only cause further oral health issues down the road.The only way to get a tongue that is "tongue tied" pierced is to see an oral surgeon and have a frenectomy done. This is where the frenial web is cut back so the tongue appears to be the same as a normally developed tongue. This procedure is expensive and is generally not done unless the web is causing other issues for the individual like impairing speech.Tongues are generally pierced three quarters of an inch back from the tip of the tongue. The barbell is sized by the piercer to allow for swelling and freedom of movement and will need to be shortened after two weeks post piercing to prevent dental damage and gum regression. Piercing the tongue any further ahead will cause issues with dental damage and gum regression.Any one who has or believes they have a tied tongue should consult with there doctor and dentist before considering getting a tongue piercing. Not every piercer knows how to handle these situations so you need to know you are dealing with a truly experienced body piercer and not some novice who hasn't got the experience of training to handle this form of piercing properly.Aftercare for the tongue piercing is the same regardless of the tongue in question, these instructions will be given to you by your professional body piercer verbally as well as in writing.

I got my tongue pierced and its to far back i went to 2 other piercers and they said it was fine but im unhappy with it if i take it out how long should i wait to get it repierced?

Normal placement is 3/4" from the tip of the tongue to the top ball. If your tongue is unusually long placement can vary slightly. If you remove the piercing (no sooner than 72 hours from the time the piercing was first done) you will need to wait at least 3~4 weeks from removal date to get the piercing redone. The tongue swells and distends once it's pierced so we need to be sure this swelling is gone and the old piercing had healed up so there is no bump or distension from the old piercing to interfere with the new piercing. edit: did you know people get (not uncommon either) brain abscesses from their tongue piercings? be careful, because this is definitely one of the most dangerous areas to pierce considering how close it is to your brain stem.
