3 Tips For Healing From Your New Tongue Piercing

Getting body piercings can be a fun way to express yourself. However, after you get your tongue pierced, it is important for you to give yourself some time to heal. These are a few tips that can help you in the first few days after getting your tongue pierced.

1. Wear the Right Jewelry

First of all, even though you might be excited about experimenting with new tongue rings, now is not the time to start experimenting with new jewelry. When you first get your tongue pierced, the person who gives you the piercing should put in a tongue ring that is large enough to work with the swelling from the new piercing and that is made from a metal that you shouldn't have to worry about having an allergic reaction to. Leaving the initial tongue ring in place during the time that is recommended by the person who does your piercing can help you prevent problems. In time, you will have plenty of chances to experiment with your jewelry and to put new tongue rings in.

2. Be Careful About What You Eat

During the first few days after getting your new tongue piercing, you will probably want to be careful about what you eat. Eating foods that are acidic or spicy can cause irritation, so you may want to avoid them. Instead, you may want to stick with soft and bland foods, such as mashed potatoes.

3. Give Your Tongue Some Time to Heal

Along with making sure that you wear the right jewelry and that you are careful about what you eat, it is important for you to give your tongue some time to heal as well. Even though you might be anxious to smoke, kiss, talk, or do other things that will use your tongue, it is important to be patient. Avoiding using your tongue for much of anything for a few days after getting your piercing can help you prevent bacteria from being spread and can give your tongue some time to heal.

As you can see, there are a few steps that you will probably want to follow when you have a new tongue piercing. This can help you minimize the pain after your piercing and can help you ensure that your tongue has time to heal. Then, in no time, your tongue piercing should be healed up, and you can begin enjoying it even more.

About Me

Becoming More Artistic

Have you ever truly created something beautiful? I have always loved the idea of creating great art, but when I first started, I was less than amazing at painting, drawing, sketching, and sculpting. Fortunately, a talented art instructor really helped me to find my way, and it was remarkable to see how much of a difference she was able to make for me. She helped me to learn the finer points of design, and within a few months I could tell that things were really coming together. I wanted to start this blog to inspire other people to become more artistic, no matter what they might have on their plates.
