I am a 21-year-old student living in KL. I have been thinking about getting a tongue piercing but have heard that it may be bad for my health. According to information I’ve read online, com- plications can include pain, swelling and possible cracked teeth. I would like to know if this is true and whether you believe tongue piercings are actually safe. While I would really love to have my tongue pierced, my health is my number one priority.
