Can You Drink Alcohol after a Tongue Piercing?

Answer

Drinking alcohol immediately after receiving a tongue piercing is a bad idea in many cases. Non colored liquors without coloring or any sweeteners will harm the new piercing. However, clear alcohol above 80 proof such as vodka, Everclear, or Bacardi 151 will actually help the piercing by keeping it clean, however the burning sensation on the newly pierced tongue will be extremely painful. One should follow by gargling with a mixture of salt and water.
