Hey me too :[ I put a barbell in instead cause I have a little notch where it receded where the ring rested on my gum all the time. So I guess it's for only special occasions. It's still fun to play with with my tongue though.
Yeah I can't have it forever because it'll eventually deteriorate my gums ): but for now it's <3 It doesn't hurt at all, even getting it pierced was virtually painless. It's just an odd feeling cause you have something wedged up there ahaha
