Definitely wait the.full healing period before attemping oral sex, and if possible wait until the additional tenderness goes away. During healing use non-alcohol mouthwash and do NOT skip out on holding a cup full of warm salt water to your mouth, rotate stud, hold cup, repeat. Kiss nicely, no rough kisses, rinse after you eat or smoke, no neosporin and look for redness. If you see red, take it easy on the mouth contact. Once healed, it's no problem at all!

yes, that is what i was thinking too...i think it took almost one year for the one in my tounge to fully heal. but i waited the right amount of time.
but my husband was clock and calandar checking...and im just wondering about stretching and pulling and the possibility of a tear..because it is on the outside of your mouth.
My one lip ring took about 6 weeks to not be tender to the touch, and about three months to where I could solidly pull on it without it hurting. I think if you keep the studs in with a flat back against your gumline, you'd be ok for oral after the 6 weeks, it's not quite as directly rubbed against like your tongue is, and opening your mouth is good for further healing. Everyone is different though because Hot Damn, it took a year for your tongue to heal? Took me a week for the immediate swelling, three months later I could pull it out and keep it out overnight without it shutting. Oh yeah, I also highly reccomend zinc supplements, they definitely cut down my healing time. Posted via Mobile Device
thank you. i feel a lot better about it. i will look into zinc, and sike me self up..hopefully over the summer...
and yea..about a year for it to be fully healed..all swelling completely gone. i left the orginal post in for that time, and was looking to switch for a softer one. hell it was 4 months before i could blow bubbles..!!
although, prob because i waited the bare minum amount of time before returning to oral, but i didnt have the bad side affects at all.
nothing wrong with that. if you dont like tats, or metal sticking out of places other than ears...you know what you like. i see where you are coming from...i remember a couple of decades ago, folks did things for attention, or joining a gang....but nothing because..."hey, im an individual"
this day and age, we are different, and it dosent always mean that someone was drinking and woke up with it, not always. i had kids early, got married early...so now im ready to do me and my outside can match me inside.
When I was in my early teens, early 80's tattoos weren't that common where I was living. However, my next door neighbour was covered from the waist up, with full sleeves. He intimidated the hell out of me. One day my mother noticed how uncomfortable being around him and sat me down, this is his story:
When he was 12 he came home from school early, as he wasn't feeling so well. He surprised some men who were in the middle of a B&E. They beat him up pretty badly, stabbed him a few times and carved obscenities and Swastikas in his back and chest. As he grew older the scars faded, but every summer when he got a little tanned, they would become more pronounced. As a result he covered himself in tattoos, not because he wanted to, but because he needed to.
I have never viewed tattoos the same since, or ever looked at anyone with them any different. Sometimes I now see someone who is covered and wonder what their reason is.
I myself have two. It took me 20 years of wanting one and 10 years of knowing what I wanted without waivering to go ahead.
