What is Frenulum Piercing?

A frenulum piercing is a body modification that involves puncturing the frenulum, which is the thin tissue that connects the
tongue to the floor of the mouth.
This type of piercing is relatively new and has become increasingly popular in recent years.
There are two main types of frenulum piercings: horizontal and vertical.
A horizontal frenulum piercing is made through the horizontal band of tissue that runs along the underside of the tongue.
A vertical frenulum piercing is made through the vertical band of tissue that runs down the center of the tongue.
Frenulum piercings can be done for aesthetic or medical reasons.
Some people get them because they think they look cool, while others get them to help with dental problems or speech
impairments.

You may feel some pressure or pain during this process.
After the needle is through, your piercer will insert a piece of jewelry called a barbell.
