It is the perforation of the tongue web (frenulum), the small flap of tissue that attaches the underneath of the tongue to the floor of the mouth.

How is tongue web piercing done

Although this piercing is relatively simpler than other types of oral piercings, you might have to search for a well-recognized piercing salon having years of experience in it. Before going ahead with the piercing, you would be given an antibacterial mouthwash for rinsing your mouth. A light, hollow needle is then pushed through the frenulum. A curved or straight jewelry is inserted into the pierced spot after the completion of the procedure.

Tongue web piercing infection and complications

An infected frenulum piercing can cause irritation and pain along with pus discharge. If the piercing site undergoes severe swelling and reddening then seek immediate medical attention. Although it does not cause damage to the teeth and gums, the jewelry might rub against the underside of the tongue and floor of the mouth, resulting in pain. Rejection is another common issue associated with tongue web piercing due to the unusual placement of the jewelry. Therefore, it is necessary to get it done by a certified piercer.
