An oral (mouth) piercing is a small hole in your tongue, lip, cheek, or uvula (the tiny tissue at the back of your throat) so you can wear jewelry.
It's a way to express your style, but it can be dangerous.
Your mouth is filled with bacteria that can lead to infection and swelling.
A swollen tongue can make it hard for you to breathe.
In some people with heart disease, bacteria can lead to a condition that can damage your heart valves. Tongue piercings also can put you at risk for bleeding and blood loss.
