Description of service

I had my tongue pierced originally 7 years ago for $60. I had it redone almost two years ago for the same price. This price includes a basic metal barbell. If you want one of the fancier barbell studs you have to pay for the difference in cost, which can vary from $5 to hundreds of dollars (there was a gold stud with a ruby encrusted), but the basic piercing was $60.

Review of Service

Though it was a bit of a drive for me, it was worth it. The place I went to is small and family run, and very personal. I was comfortable with the people who run it, so I as able to relax. You don't want to be tense when you go in, and I was nervous, since I had had it done before and knew it was going to hurt a bit.


Make sure you like your piercer. Tensing up isn't good when you get either tatoos or piercings, so if you just don't get along with the artist, get out and find someone else. Also, stock up on soft foods. Your tongue could be swollen a day, or over a week. Plan on eating jello, ice cream, and lots of chicken noodle soup, because hard foods that require a lot of chewing are not pleasant to eat. Also, don't pierce if you have something you need to talk for (a speech, a job interview, or you work on the phone). You will talk like a little baby for a few days.
