So I got my tongue pierced last tuesday (its now the following monday). Swelling is still going down, and i had some flesh protrude from the wound but it died and came away quite easily, as my piercer said it would. But, my question is (i havent had a chance to catch up with my piercer yet to ask), is it normal for a tongue ring to migrate? As mine seems to have moved further down my tongue from where it was pierced, by about 3mm, leaving a short looking split. This doesnt concern me to greatly, as i am going to split it once it has heald anyway. Im just curious :)

It's not unusual, especially if the piercing caught an extra bit of skin, and should heal normally.
You don't need a piercing for a split though, as most wisdom now seems to suggest it makes little difference with cut and suture, which is fast becoming recognised as the best method.

Phew!

My piercer did say, however, that i had to stop playing with it then and there – if i tear it any more like that, i risk damaging and killing nerves along one side of my tongue, meaning that once i get it split, i will have one side of my tongue that doesnt move as much as the other. so essentially a 'lame' half of my tongue.

I've not heard of killing nerves before! It seems a little unlikely though tbh.

Once it's healed playing with it will be fine, and helps it loosen up for stretching or as a base for a split. Watch your teeth though!
