I had my tounge pierced before... It's healed... Can I get it redone?

When I had my son he ripped my bar out and I swallowed the ball... I didn't have the money for a new one and I had to let the rip in my tounge heal anyways. Now, I can't get a bar through it at all... It's healed almost all the way... If I go back to the piercer can he redo it or at the very least reopen the hole I have?? Or is it a one time thing... I know there are only so many spots they can do it because of the veins and nerves in the tounge... I really want it again...

  • You can get it redone. I got mine redone but they used a different needle to do mine since it wasn't fully closed. Just ask them to redo it for you where it was already pierced.

  • I had mine redone for a similar reason. You can request that they re-pierce in the same place. Good luck! :)

  • I've too had mine done twice.. It may hurt a little more than it did the first time but it can be done.

  • If you are planning to get a job at some point, you may want to skip it.

  • Oh yeah, you can get it redone. My mom has had mine done like 2 or 3 times. It'll probably be through the same spot, or very very close to it. I'm getting mine done as soon as I can and I can't wait lol. I already have a couple of piercings. I'm needle happy (as my husband says lol). If you get it redone, let me know how it turns out for you.

  • Thanks for the thought rkoloms - But I OWN my business, so I have a job for ME... I won't fire me if my tounge is pierced... And I don't know of anyone that would, most people I know own businesses... And most people I know are tattooed and pierced... Besides, you can take it out for work... Sheesh... Rude comment much?

  • I have had it re done twice, so yea you can do it. It doesnt even hurt when you get it redone it just slide right through.

  • In reference to jobs; most jobs don't care about tongue rings as long as you don't sit there and constantly play with it.. It isn't a piercing you can really tell someone has unless they are playing with it and even if they did ask you to take it out, they do make retainers for them and also after having them so long you can just take them out and not worry about them closing up right away.
