R.I.P. Tongue Frenulum Ring

February 2008 – March 2014. (Kinda gross details within.)

I got it in Ottawa, kind of spur of the moment. I've had no problems with it, except for a bit of tenderness late last year. Nothing a thorough cleaning couldn't fix.

Yesterday morning, I woke up and the little nub thing the piercing was set just above was swollen and painful. I cleaned it and swished with saltwater, but was preparing for the worst. If the swelling didn't go down when I woke up the next day, I'd have to take it out.

This morning, I woke up and it was much more swollen and altogether more painful. Biggie Talls washed the needle nose pliers for me and I delicately pried the captive ring open. Out came the ring, and here we are. The pain went from sharp when I moved the ring to a dull ache as my body tried to figure out what was going on. This was at like 6:30am.

Biggie left for work and I continued getting ready. At some point I had another look at it and noticed a bit of white. I thought it was perhaps some skin that got stretched weird, but when I poked it, it disappeared. I'm sure you guys know where this is going.

I pushed on the swollen nub, and out the pus came. Not a lot, considering how disgusting the human body can be, but still surprising and repulsive. Volume-wise, was probably as much as you'd get out of an average mature body pimple.

Regardless, I was disgusted and satisfied. The swelling has gone down quite a bit and it doesn't hurt at all. Looks like it was very irritated but not full-on infected, so that's good.

Anyway, that was my morning.


(How it looked when it was healthy, though my ring was silver.)
