Web Mouth Piercing Ideas

What is a Tongue Web Piercing?

The frenulum is a piece of connective tissue found inside the mouth on the upper and lower lip connecting the lip the gums, and there is also a larger one under the tongue. The tongue web piercing is the piercing in the frenulum under the tongue that connects the tongue to the bottom of your mouth.

A lot like the smiley is the piercing in the frenulum in the upper lip because the jewelry shape and flow mimics the smile. The frowny piercing is the inverse of the smiley, which is a piercing in the lower lip frenulum. Or all 3 piercings can also simply be called web piercings.

How Long Does It Take for a Web Piercing to Heal?

How to Change Tongue Web Piercing

Twelve weeks after getting an oral web piercing, it should be safe to change your jewelry yourself as long as you haven’t experienced any piercing problems that could have delayed the healing process, like an infection.

How to Remove a Tongue Web Piercing

When you’re ready to try changing your jewelry on your own, consider using your new jewelry to push the old jewelry out for a smoother transition.

Your piercing could close up quickly, in which case you’d need to wait at least 2-3 months to get re-pierced. If you’re nervous this might happen to you, ask your piercer to supervise while you try changing your jewelry the first time. That way they can jump in if you encounter a problem.

How to Pierce Your Tongue Web at  Home

We always recommend visiting a licensed professional for any piercing.

If your piercer determines that you’re a good candidate for this piercing, they’ll begin the process. The actual procedure is relatively quick, lasting a few minutes at most.

Here’s what to expect:

  1. Your piercer will give you an antibacterial solution to rinse out your mouth.
  2. After your mouth is clean, they’ll pull your upper lip back to expose the frenulum.
  3. The piercing is then made with a sterile needle.
  4. They’ll thread the jewelry through the hole, and, if needed, screw any applicable beads on to hold the jewelry in place.
