Biting off a taste bud?

It would be difficult to bite off a taste bud. If you are reffering to the bumps on your tongue those are called papillae. These are not the taste buds, however, some of them are associated with taste buds. The papillae are surrounded by a moat and on the wall of the papillae in the moat are the taste buds. So you would have to cut a papillae somewhat deep in order to have taken the taste bud with it. Assuming the taste bud left with the papillae it should regenerate, eventually. As mentioned only some papillae have taste buds. In humans only the circumvallate papillae, fungiform papillae, and foliate papillae have taste buds on their walls. drazx is the original author of this answer
