I was going to get my tongue pierced for my 18th birthday. It didn’t hurt much but as soon as I was getting ready to walk back to the car, I fainted outside the shop & fell face flat on the ground, with a swollen mouth feeling extremely dizzy & nausea all of a sudden. I don’t remember walking back to the car but as soon as I did, I threw up. the end.
