February 1, 2008, Newsletter Issue #102: Tongue Web Piercing

Tip of the Week

For something a little more exotic than your typical tongue ring, some people are going for a new type of mouth piercing: the frenulum.

The frenulum is the little web of skin that attaches your tongue to the lower portion of your mouth. Not everyone can get this area pierced, as some people do not have enough skin there to get jewelry through. Also, this area is rarely seen by other people, so it's not exactly a "show-off" type piercing. But it's an option for those who want a different tongue ring from the rest.

Care and healing times are similar to that of a regular tongue piercing, but check with your piercer. Unfortunately, not all piercers and shops are very familiar with frenulum piercing yet, so make sure to ask your piercer about this procedure prior to deciding on the piercing.
