I just discovered my old tongue piercing is still there, I managed to get an earring through the hole. I know gross!!!!! The more I think about it the more I want to put my tongue stud back in. I tried to get my old barbell in but it gets stuck in the middle and I'm too much of a wimp to force it. It's been out a year. Does anyone know if I can get it stretched back to a 12 so I can put my stud back in or will it have to be repierced? Thanks.

Mine's retired forever now, but I took it out for about a year (I've had a lot of dental work), and it pretty much closed up.  I forced it through (yeah, it hurt, but it wasn't the worst pain I've ever felt) with an insertion needle, replaced the original (longer) barbell, and took care of it as though it were a totally new piercing.  If you don't do that, you could probably go to a shop and have them tweak it a bit. 

...so believe when I say Im no better than you, except when I craft so I guess it aint true.

get a taper thing.  http://piercing-jewelry-sale.com/category21  I bet that could work for your tounge.

I dont think they sell an 18/16 guage taper which is what i would have needed but its ok I got a barbell back in. I went to a piercer today and for the price of the jewellery he put it in for me. It hurt just as bad as getting it pierced but hopefully the healing will be quicker.

first thing... howlong about does it take a tounge ring to heal up? and do any of you feel "naked" with it out? or ave a lisp when u take it out for  bit? lol

and also. off topic a bit... but is there any way to possibly make your own balls? id never try a stud. but ive found walmart carries cheap packs of balls, but id like my own.. i love buying new balls / studs(w/e you call them. ive heard them called stems lol.).. im addicted, and i think making them would be cute, but have never heard of that..
