After my exam, I went to Rosebank so I could get a new tongue ring. The man showed me the stock that he had of plastic ones (I really don't want to destroy my teeth!) and I immediately said "blue!" (the man had orange, red, pink, clear, light purple and blue).
It feels so different to the metal one, but in a good way! It's obviously a shorter bar and it's bendy which is quite cool :D
The piercing has healed so nicely :) it does get a bit sore if have too much food in my mouth, twist my tongue too hard and the worst pain I feel is when I yawn :O but slowly slowly it is healing up so nicely :)
The lady who pierced my tongue has left SA Ink but I told the man I will change the ring by myself (I really absolutely had to change it, the metal bar was long and getting in the way!) so that's what I did. It was quite funny... :P
When I got home from tutoring and after I ate, I disinfected the ring and took the metal one out. IT FELT SO WEIRD NOT TO HAVE THE RING IN. I felt naked, exposed. No es bueno. I struggled for 5 seconds to get the plastic bar in (to which I swore and said that I am screwed if I don't get it in because at 20:00, there's no piercer open to help). Though I got it in (it was a tiny bit sore) and took another 15 minutes to screw the bottom ball in because gob and nerves are a terrible combination :P
BUT I MANAGED and I washed my mouth out with salt water and here I am :D
