For some people, a piercing is a symbol of belonging to a certain group or an identity proof. If you don’t want to look like a Christmas tree with rings and studs hanging from every part of your body, you can opt for a safer choice, imitation jewelry.

- Read the instructions given at the back of the packet carefully.
- If it is the stick-on type, take the sticker out and place it carefully between the tip and the middle of the tongue.
- If it is of the magnetic type then carefully place the upper part of the piercing on the desired location and the magnet in the back of your tongue so that it is held together.

- Don’t sleep with it on, as that can also lead to similar accidents.
- Try not to wear it while swimming and bathing as that could be risky too.
- If, by any chance you happen to gulp the ring, get immediate medical help.
