Uvula Piercing

It happens, but thankfully rare...

Ear piercing I will do, but truly uvula piercing is not something I would recommend given a whole host of problems it may cause including:

• Gagging
• Airway obstruction
• Uvular stretching
• Uvular bisection
• Accidental inhalation if it comes loose
• Uvular swelling
etc. etc. etc.

Indeed, most people would rather get their uvula removed rather than "enhancing" it!

I've always freaked myself out watching videos on youtube before having piercings! I've usually been underwhelmed when actually having it done.
