Horizontal tongue piercings

This is a tongue piercing which instead of going from above to below the tongue, goes from side to side through it.

A tongue piercing, which is not pierced from top to bottom, but from left to right through the tongue tip.

The horizontal tongues piercing is not feasible at any given time and can lead to speech problems (2 weeks approx.). These later pass by smaller balls and shorter barbels. The Snake Eyes is a little more time-consuming while healing and takes about 4 weeks.The customers have to be a bit more patient here, since the mouth is “full” until the first time it is changed.

Whoever has healed the Snake Eyes, loves it! The customers report reciprocal that it brings the partner enormously much stimulation during the sex and must also be very interesting when kissing. Of course, the Snake Eyes also looks just mega cool and is the very rare tongue piercing with the Venoms together.

Getting your tongue pierced by a professional poses no problem; however, those who think that anyone can do it are mistaken, because it involves making the perfect placement for every individual customer based on a careful study of the person’s anatomy, the right angles, and the correct distance to the tip of the tongue.

If it’s done right, a tongue piercing is one of the most remarkable forms of piercing, because in addition to being a delight to wear, it can be pleasurabe for anyone who comes into direct contact with it.

Healing and care:

A nose tip piercing can take between 21 days and 2 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other mucous membrane piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then with a ProntoLind mouthwash.

It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself—the hands should be kept away from the mouth.

ProtoLind mouthspray tastes good and helps to freshen your breath. It is ideal for when you’re on the go and should be applied after every meal in order to disinfect and cleanse the piercing area.

Disinfectant solutions containing alcohol or chlorine should be avoided. Mouthwashes are no substitute for proper care and should therefore be avoided.

The right nutrition is vital for oral piercings, and you will find detailed information on this topic in the care and maintenance section.


This form of piercing uses so-called barbells, which are straight rods. Depending on the thickness of the tongue, the individual can wear a range of barbells (18-28mm).

Keep in mind:

The piercer must be careful not to damage the tongue frenulum which connects the tongue with the lower jaw. S/He must also make sure that the placement of the piercing does not damage the teeth (following two tongue piercings in close succession). Whereas a piercing in the middle of the tongue runs between the tongue muscles, an off-center piercing goes directly through one of the muscles. That is why this kind of piercing should only be done by a professional with experience.

There is no risk of a loss of taste, because the taste buds lie laterally on either side of the tongue, whereas a tongue piercing is generally executed in the middle, between the two tongue muscles.
