Trend revivals from the 90s are not just about fashion or hair, but piercings as well, especially on the tongue.
Just in case you didn’t know, a tongue piercing is the kind of body jewelry that speaks a ton about your personality. It can be any sort of tongue piercing; a midline tongue piercing, frenulum linguae, or a horizontal piercing, among other types. But each one of them holds the power to define you as an individual.
Wondering how? Let’s find out. But before that, we’ll take you through the basics of tongue piercings. Hop on besties!
Different Types of Tongue Piercings
The most common type of tongue piercing is vertical or midline piercing. With this kind, you’ll have a straight barbell getting pierced in the middle of the tongue. On the contrary, with venom piercing you’ll have two barbells instead of one, with both of them being placed parallel to one another. Sounds cool, doesn’t it?
Tongue Piercings Make You Look Adventurous
Yes, you read that right! A study conducted by “Her” revealed that females who get their tongue pierced are perceived to have a daring personality and hence, are quite adventurous. Irrespective of whether you’re chugging neat shots or jumping from a mountain cliff, you’re making the most of your adventures and having fun.
Furthermore, “Mel” magazine also added that having a tongue piercing represents your adventurous side in the bedroom too. It is believed that tongue rings or barbells provide extra stimulation while being orally intimate with your partner. Sunny Rogers, a certified intimacy coach, adds that the true sense of arousal is achieved from the dichotomy of textures which, in this case, comes from the softness of the tongue and stiffness of the piercing! The contrast of both of these textures causes sensations that make intimate activities even more pleasurable.
To Sum Up
Getting your tongue pierced might sound a little too aggressive for some of our fellow readers, but as we already mentioned, it's not everyone’s go-to jam. If the thought of it sits right and you feel comfortable taking that next step towards unlocking your wild side, you’re welcome to join the party. Otherwise, you can simply rock a natural look—it’s as simple as that!
