Why We Say No: Lingual Frenulum Piercing

The tongue web or lingual frenulum piercing is one of a category of piercings we at Master Pierce will not perform. We refuse for a variety of reasons.

It sits under your tongue and is through such a thin piece of tissue that it can barely support the weight of jewelry. When your tongue rests on it, it causes pressure, discomfort, and warps the piercing itself. This causes migration and tearing of the healing fistula which will result in an abnormal hole. Given time, the migratory pattern will result in the jewelry exiting your lingual frenulum. This leaves behind scar tissue and permanent damage to the area.

Due to these associated risks and consequences, Master Pierce took a stance as a team to neither pierce nor install jewelry in this particular area.
