So I got a tongue piercing last night. When it was pierced, i felt a tingle on top of pain, fairly similar to what a dentist hitting a nerve feels like. Hence i assumed it was a nerve and didn't see anything to wrong with this, as the tongue is fairly sensitive. anyways the bottom part of the piercing is a couple millimeters off to the left(intentional?). After a day I have noticed that when i rub my tongue on the top of my mouth part of my tongue feels numb! After poking around a little bit, it definitely feels like the piecer hit a nerve. Am i mistaken or is this just normal and part of the healing process? Nothin in my taste has noticealby changed so that's good. A seperate tangent...I have a piece of jewelery that is a rivet, like one from a bridge....It is a 2g size but is made out of some sorta steel not surgical(not shiny). Anyone know if its cool to wear this or am I poisining myself?
