Why do people want to get their tongues pierced?

I want to ask people who have got this piercing. How does it feel to taste things, eat, talk etc. after a Tongue Piercing.

Even tough I feel awkward for some other piercings gals do, I can accept it as people have different taste for fashion/look/style and Its something external to body.

But why would anyone want to get the tongue pierced?

ANSWER #1 of 30

Don't Listen to what some have said "They Can't talk" Bull I have 2 thank you, and I speak perfectly, No weird accent, no slurring, NOTHING. I was able to eat after a while, It swells, but really doesn't hurt it's so quick. I didn't do it for a Guy's pleasure, I did it for myself. I love peircings and Body Mods. So Not everybody does it to be "Cool" Because it's not unique anybody can do it. But I did mine Differently, I have one vertical, and one Horizontal. It's a personal choice. Not a "trend" I've had mine since I was in grade 8 which was a longg time ago. nothing bad has happened to me, as I keep them clean, and they are fully healed. Common sense does wonders.

Does it hurt more when you get your tongue pierced, or when you get your bellybutton pierced?

ANSWER #3 of 30

Uh, yeah I dunno where people are getting the idea that it affects your speech.
Because that is 100% false.
The only reason people wouldnt be able to talk right from it is because their tongue is swollen from getting the peircing.
And that goes away. So yeah.
I've wanted my tongue peirced for 5 years now, and since I'm going to be 18 in a few months, my sister is going to pay for a peircing for me.

I adore the way it looks.
I'm all for tats and peircings n__n.

Get your tongue pierced, does it effect your talking

ANSWER #5 of 30

Hmm... I had my tongue pierced about a week ago... why? simply because... it wasn't for guys, or to look cool. it was purely for myself, the piercing itself doesn't hurt (it kinda feels weird though, to have a needle slide through your muscle) and mine barely swelled any and that is already gone. it did take a few tries to get used to eating (you have to put everything to the side of your mouth) but I can already go back to eating pretty much anything, (though stuff like lemonade and coke still burn the crap out of the piercing itself) but it doesn't feel weird to talk (it might sound weird at first with the swelling a whatnot but that goes away)

ANSWER #7 of 30

I got my tongue pierced yesturday and it really dosen't hurt, only minor discomfort from the swelling. I can eat and drink no problem but it is a little weird eating at first. I did it because I have always wanted my tongue pierced for several reasons first of all I like the rush of a new piercing, I love the way it looks and I also did it to increase my husbands sexual pleasure.

ANSWER #14 of 30

i got it because i like piercings. i didn't do it for what zonemaster thinks the original reason was. which is entirely inaccurate. i dont flash off my tounge ring, i keep it to myself because i got it for myself. it sucked the first 3 days i think i cried for like hours because the actual piercing doesn't hurt, its the swelling and everything else afterwards. they say you can eat mashed potatoes and stuff but i literally couldn't eat anything. you cant eat spices, salt anything hot or cold. i think it just made me grumpy for like 3 days because i hadn't eaten anything, and i could barely talk. and believe me i wanted to take it out so bad. but everyone was like don't worry you'll love it after

and i do.

so except for the first 3 days. i recommend getting it to people who want it.

ANSWER #17 of 30

i was bored one day and decided to pierce something. my mother would have killed me if i had done anything to my face ( ie nose, eyebrow, lip) so i went to the nearest tattoo parlor and did it up. it was not to enhance the pleasure for males it was simply for my own amusement. personally i dont think any thing tastes different nor is it difficult for me to talk. ive had it for 3 years now and its just as much a part of my body as my earlobes : P
