While both above me are correct in a sense the real reason is because the alcochol would kill all and any new cells which you need for the piercing to heal. Without the new cells you would hvae an open wound or a longgg time causing infection that could end up being very dangerous. Do not use alcoholic mouth wash. I recommend Crest Pro Health Non- Alcoholic. I used it both when I got my tounge and my lip pierced.
