    Posted: October/26/2011 at 7:07pm
I am in the process of stretching my tongue piercing. It was pierced at the standard 14g and I decided to start stretching. I am only at a 12 now, but in a few days I will be up to a 10.

My question is this: I know that leaving my 14g piercing out would cause it to start closing up pretty quickly, but will it do that once I get up to a larger gauge, such as a 4 or a 2? Basically, will the hole shrink even if it's a large hole?

Thanks!

It will more than likely eventually shrink up. As for how long, I think that's something that is different for everyone.
I had a 6 gauge that closed within a day or two, if I remember correctly.

I have a 00g and I can leave it out for over a week before it becomes difficult to insert the barbell. When it was smaller (8g and below) it would shrink really fast.

individual results may vary, of course

I'm not surprised as the tongue is a muscle and has more "memory" in it than say an earlobe or nostril would. The tongue is "fun" to stretch though. I have had mine pierced multiple times in the past. "Phases" if you will. At one point, I had it double pierced. 6g in front, 8g behind it. I eventually removed the 8g and just kept the 6. The 6g, I stretched myself from 10g in a very "ghetto" fashion. I actually took an old toothbrush and sanded down the handle into a tapered 'spike'. I used it to stretch my tongue a little every day and eventually the 6g fit. Lots of drooling involved but it was fun.

i had a 1/2 in tongue ring, that if i took it out for a few hours would shrink down a few sizes relatively quickly. ive had other friends that could leave a 14ga ring out for a week with no issue.
The pain has a bad reaction, a blend of fear and action.
