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.
