Do not, I repeat, do NOT ever get your tongue pierced.
I had friends warn me of the dangers before I had it done, but I didn't listen and did it anyway (and I do thank you for no "I told you so's" friends). Unfortunately I'm now paying the price. I've never had a single cavity in my entire 37 years of existence. I have beautiful, strong, straight, white, shiny teeth. I brush and floss
Here's why: It's extremely easy to chomp down on the metal ball while eating, (actually it's extremely difficult not to chomp down on the metal ball while eating)... which is exactly what happened to me. I chomped down and cracked my back teeth. So for that one measly little metal ball in my mouth, I've now gone through five dental procedures (three of which were horribly painful), It's cost over $2700.00 (thank God for insurance), and I still have two more dental procedures to go through. On the bright side I have one shiny gold tooth.
So if you feel like being cute and getting your tongue pierced, JUST. SAY. NO. Go get a tattoo instead.
