I want to get my tongue pierced, but there is a vein down the middle then 2 blue ones. Onr goes to the left and the other to the right. Is it possible for me to get my tongue pierced?
I would not advise tongue piercing under any circumstance. The jewelry can cause teeth to fracture and can cause the gums to pull away from the teeth (recession), along with a variety of other potential problems.
