Before beginning the piercing procedure, you must discuss clearly with your piercer regarding the gap in between the two perforations. He/she will make you rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash before beginning the procedure. A sterilized needle will be used to make the piercings before inserting the jewelry item inside the perforations. Since, the tongue is a sensitive body part and remains wet throughout the day and night you must take proper care of the piercing during the initial phase of healing.
Your purpose is to keep the mouth clean during this phase and avoid touching your jewelry all the time with dirty hands. Wash and rinse your mouth after every meal and avoid hot and spicy food and even crackers. Cool and cold food will be better for you. Be careful while brushing your teeth otherwise you may hurt your mouth and piercing. It takes around 4-8 weeks for the venom piercing to heal. Enjoy flashing your pierced tongue occasionally to your friends and peers.
