Tongue Tattoo Facts

  • There are a lot of precautionary measures that needs to be taken when going for tongue tattooing:
  • Make sure your tongue is clean and has no infections and ulcers. If there is any, then give some time to heal.
  • Tattoo care is as important as tattoo art. So when you go to a tattoo studio, see to it that your tattoo artist uses disposable gloves and autoclaved equipment to avoid any infection. Equipment must be disinfected before use.
  • Tongue tattooing is no different from skin tattooing when it comes to technicalities used. The needles of tattoo gun move faster over your tongue pricking the outer membranes of the skin pigmenting them with ink.
  • Tongue tattoos take around 2-3 weeks to heal as tongue is a soft and tender organ. In the initial days, the tongue will feel extremely sensitive and ticklish and at times numb too. Slight pain is also felt when the crust of the skin on the tongue grows.

The designs that are poplar with tongue tattoos include stars, tribal work, and other shapes and designs that cover a region of the tongue. Stars are popular with the lower area of the tongue, near the tip. There are also designs that can be tattooed farther back on the tongue, near the middle of it. As tongue tattoos become more and more popular, more and more designs are implemented.
