When choosing a tongue bar we all know that comfort is key, that’s why I always recommend a titanium tongue piercing bar. Titanium is one of the best metals for tongue jewellery because it is non-irritating and completely biocompatible. Unlike surgical steel, titanium is nickel-free. This means that it does not react to your skin and will not irritate your piercing the way that steel can. Combined with its implant-grade biocompatibility, this makes titanium a wonderful choice for any piercing jewellery. I think that this is especially important for tongue piercing jewellery because the tongue is such a sensitive body part. An uncomfortable tongue bar quickly becomes extremely irritating and can even lead to long-term oral damage. Our titanium tongue piercing bars are a comfortable and healthy choice for your piercing, allowing you to enjoy the piercing for years to come.

As the most biocompatible metal for piercing jewellery, titanium comes with many different benefits. The most important of these are its comfortable feel and high quality. This means that your titanium tongue bar will feel great and continue to do so for many years to come. Here are some of the other benefits of wearing a titanium tongue piercing bar:
Extremely comfortable to wear
Easy to clean and remove plaque
Nickel-free and suitable for those with metal allergies
Durable and built to last

Vibrating Tongue Bar Colours
Our vibrating silicone tongue bars come in four different colours that look as good as they feel. The special design includes soft silicone that feels great and is comfortable to wear. The main part of the tongue bar is made from high quality surgical steel and each tongue bar comes with two batteries, so you’ll be ready to go straight out of the packet.
Comfort is an important factor with all types of piercing jewellery but in my experience it is especially important with tongue bars. The mouth is very sensitive and an uncomfortable tongue bar will soon become unbearable! It is also vital that your tongue jewellery does not rub the inside of your mouth or gums, as this can cause health problems such as gum recession. But you don’t want to scrimp on style, so what do to? Fortunately we have a great choice of tongue bars that are stylish AND comfortable to wear. From the simple and chic to bold and blinging, these tongue bars feel as good as they look.
Titanium Tongue Bars
These titanium tongue bars are the ultimate minimalist piece of jewellery. They have flat discs instead of balls, which give a very sleek look. The discs are specially designed for comfort – they sit smoothly against the surface of your tongue and don’t take up lots of room in your mouth. The fact that there is a disc on the bottom is also very important because it reduces rubbing on the bottom of your mouth. Titanium is a highly biocompatible material, so these tongue bars are extremely comfortable and ideal for quick healing. If your tongue piercing often gets irritated or you tend to bite the ball, I would definitely recommend this tongue bar!

Surgical Steel Tongue Bars
Just like the titanium bars, these steel tongue bars have flat tops for your comfort. But they also up the style stakes! These bars come with a choice of stars, discs and hearts in lots of colours and designs. My favourite are the jewelled tongue bars – they combine real comfort and glamour in a great little bar. The jewels are embedded in the top and covered with a smooth finish that feels great against your mouth. It means the jewels can never fall out and reduces irritation to your mouth. Meanwhile the super-sparkly jewels ensure that your piercing looks very glamorous every single day.
Brand new in the BJS online store this week are flexible barbells. These barbells come in a gorgeous range of colours that will really brighten up your look. But flexible barbells don’t just look good; they are also very comfortable and can reduce some of the risks associated with tongue piercings. These flexible barbells are made from a new type of flexible PMMA acrylic that is very durable but bendy. This means that they bend with your body and put less stress on your piercings. These barbells are ideal for tongue piercings and nipple piercings.
Advantages of Flexible Barbells for Tongue Piercings
The main risk associated with tongue piercings is tooth damage, either by chipping teeth when you bite down on the bar or the bar rubbing your teeth over the years. Fortunately flexible barbells can all but eliminate these risks, so you can keep your piercing and protect your oral health at the same time. Flexible barbells are simply too soft to damage your teeth in the same way. If you accidentally bite one it won’t chip your teeth and they are too soft to wear away enamel or push on your teeth.
When it comes to cute but comfortable tongue jewellery, flat tongue piercing bars are a great option. This type of tongue piercing bar has a flat disc or other shape on top and a regular ball on the bottom. The flat top is often a disc but here at Body Jewellery Shop we also have tongue piercing bars with hearts, stars and other fun shapes on them. The flat top is very comfortable because it lies flat against the surface of your tongue, instead of sticking up like a ball does. This means that it barely touches the roof of your mouth and it takes up much less space in your mouth. Many people prefer this style of tongue bar and some people even find that it reduces their risk of chipping a tooth.
Jewelled Tongue Piercing Bars
These jewelled flat tongue piercings bars are for all you bling lovers out there. Their tops are studded with super sparkly jewels and they come in lots of different shapes and colours to suit your look. The jewels are sealed under a special layer that keeps them in place and ensures a smooth, comfortable feel. For me, that’s their biggest advantage – I have tried jewelled tongue bars before but the jewels are often scratchy on the roof of your mouth.
When you are choosing jewellery for your tongue piercing, the most important thing is to find jewellery that is comfortable and good for your piercing. The tongue is very sensitive and any discomfort will become really annoying. Titanium tongue piercing jewellery is a great option because titanium is one of the most biocompatible materials that you can make jewellery out of. Titanium is very comfortable to wear and it will not irritate your piercing, so your tongue piercing can heal up fast and stay comfortable day to day. Here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a great choice of titanium tongue piercing jewellery including plain barbells, funky colours and jewellery that is specially designed for stretched tongue piercings.
You can keep your tongue piercing in great condition by using the great range of tongue bars available, these are not only comfortable to wear but look fantastic too. There are tongue bars to suit everybody’s taste, from dazzling sparkling glitter to titanium metallic finish rave bars. By wearing tongue bars you can quickly brighten up your look and always have something to show off.
Unfortunately for said news websites the University at Buffalo study is not representative of the majority experience (hands up everyone with tongue piercings and healthy teeth!), responsible piercing aftercare or modern tongue studs. Basically the report concerns a 26 year old woman who has developed a gap in her teeth due to playing with her metal barbell for 7 years.
University at Buffalo Claims Tongue Bars Damage Your Teeth
My main objection to this story is that it is the experience of one person and that some basic piercing advice could have prevented her problems – if she did not have access to such advice or a good piercer, then that is another issue. The story offers no statistics on the supposed link between tongue piercing and tooth damage, so all we have is one individual who had a bad experience.
