Tongue Jewekry too short? - April 16th 2018, 01:30 AM

So I got my tongue pierced on Friday the 13 since it was only 13 dollars. Usually you have to pay for the jewelry but I already had Jewelry. The piercer said he was doing me a favor by using mine but it might be to short and if it is I need to go back in to get a longer one.

My question is how do I know if it is too short? My tongue is swollen and when I look in the mirror it doesn't look like it is sinking into my tongue but I can't see any of the bar like I did when I had my tongue pierced before.

If I don't have to go down and get a longer one that would be really good since it will be like 30 dollars and I would really like to avoid that if I can.

If anyone has any ideas or advice that would be great.

How is your tongue feeling? I am not 100% certain how to tell it's too short. I know, for me, I had something done that was too short and it was really tight and ended up getting really sore. It got sore to the point that I had to take it out. If you are still feeling the pain it might be a good idea to go into the piercer and let them know what is going on. They should be able to help you figure out if it's too short etc.

Best regards.

I don't know why this hasn't been closed. I PM'd Lexi who is the mod for this forum yesterday and asked her to close it since it was too short and I went and got it change yesterday.
