How do I take care of my new tongue piercing?

 As soon as possible, after piercing, take Ibuprofen for swelling. Tylenol or Advil for the pain. Also suck on ice, or ice chips. Do not use aspirin, it will cause your blood to thin. Your tongue will swell for 3-5 days. After swelling goes down, you will have a large barbell in your mouth, so be careful to to bite down on it, it can chip or break your teeth. Starting immediatly, rinse your mouth with Listerine. Cut Listerine in half using water. Rinse with Listerine after putting anything in your mouth, besides water and ice. If you smoke ANYTHING rinse thoroughly afterwards, everytime. You will rinse with Listerine for 30 days. Make sure to keep balls on jewelry tight. If a ball comes off, you may swallow or lose jewelry. Anytime that a barbell is not in the skin, your piercing can close up. As long as we do the piercing, we will change out the jewelry, free of charge, whether you buy our jewelry or someone elses. If you have any problems, do not hesitate to call.
