How Many People Have Died from Tongue Piercings?

Answer

There are not regular statistics done on how many people have died from having their tongue pierced. The last actual count was in 2008, where 1,020 people lost their lives due to complications. The regulations regarding tongue piercing are much more strict in 2013. Piercers have to go through a special training course, which includes a brief medical lesson, in order to become certified for tongue piercing. It is the responsibility of the body piercer to examine the tongue to ensure that it is safe to pierce and that no major veins are in the way.
