March 27, 2009, Newsletter Issue #161: Tongue Piercing Safety

Tip of the Week

There are a lot of bacteria in the mouth, so infection is a major concern. The chances of transmitting an STD are also higher when a piercing is healing. (Obviously, you should always be concerned about STDs, regardless of whether you have a pierced tongue.) Sexy body jewelry in the tongue can also damage the teeth and gums over time, so monitor these areas if you decide to get your tongue pierced.
