If your school does not allow tongue piercings there are various different ways that you can hide your piercing. Tongue retainers are cheap and widely available, so you can stock up on a few or experiment with a few different types before finding the right tongue retainer for you.

The easiest thing about hiding your tongue piercing is its location – when your mouth is closed no one can even see it! If no one at school knows about your tongue piercing the best advice is to keep quiet about it and use a tongue retainer right from the beginning. That way, no one will have the chance to find you out. There are a few different types of tongue retainers and they all have their different advantages. In the end it often comes down to the way they feel. Your mouth is very sensitive and different people will find different tongue retainers comfortable to wear.

Acrylic Dome Tongue Retainers

Acrylic Dome Tongue Retainers

These acrylic dome tongue retainers are a great option for school or work. They consist of a straight bar with a half-dome on either end. They come in three colours and you can barely feel them in your mouth. I recommend the clear tongue retainer but some people can get away with either the pink or orange versions. Whether or not you find these tongue retainers comfortable varies from person to person. Some people find that the edges of the dome press into their tongue while other people find them really comfy.

Most people wear a metal barbell in their tongue piercing but what if you need something different? The answer is often a plastic tongue ring – plastic tongue rings feel softer, won’t damage your teeth and are safe for X-rays and hospital. Non-metal tongue rings are also a good compromise for school – many schools believe tongue bars are unsafe but the majority will agree to a plastic tongue retainer as a compromise.

When you hear the words “plastic tongue ring” you might think of a cheap, flimsy plastic ring, but piercing technology has come a long way! Nowadays “plastic” tongue piercing jewellery is made from hi-tech biological plastics such as BioFlex and PMMA, both of which are highly biocompatible. BioFlex is also proven to reduce healing times, so it’s great for getting your tongue pierced with too.

Advantages of Acrylic Barbells

An acrylic barbell is particularly beneficial for sensitive or healing piercings, or areas of high movement where the flexibility of the acrylic barbell helps to relieve the area of stress and irritation. The flexibility of acrylic barbells will allow some movement and bend, whilst also creating a softer environment to help prevent damage to the area, such as tongue piercings. Acrylic barbells are often worn to prevent accidental tooth-chipping or damage caused by tongue piercings, which also makes for a very comfortable piece of jewellery to wear in the mouth. Acrylic barbells are very lightweight and so comfortable to wear, you’ll forget it’s even there!
