I think it's played out honestly but if you like it do it.
Just if you do so be aware of all that comes with it as well as side affects. Becareful of bad habits. I kept my starter bar (it's very long) because I was afraid that if I tried to change it out I would lose a piece to it. (long story, I've seen it happen)
Anyhow, I would play with my tounge ring when I was bored by clicking it along the inside of my teeth or catching it in my gap and sliding it back out when I was bored.
This caused some damage over time and made my gap wider.
The experience of getting it wasn't the best either. There was blood everywhere, it hurt in ways that I thought I could perpare for but would never imagine. It healed up fine though and I had it for years until an employer made me remove it.
