Why do people get there tongue split?
They get their tongue split because they wanted to. Maybe, to those people who do that just wants to be the same with their peers; it is also done for fashion or style.
Very much so. Prior to splitting my tongue, I started to stretch it from a 14g that I had pierced it with, to a a 2g and started to develop a keloid. Fortunately, the keloid wasn't an issue, as it as in front of the rod and the scar was removed when I split it. And when I say "I" split it...I mean I split my own tongue!
Is it possible to get your tongue split by a professional surgeon without first having your tongue pierced?
Yes. Tongue splitting is simply the act of cutting the median fibrous septum, which connects the two halves of the tongue. One may use a blade, or even a laser. The technique you are referring to is called a "tie-off", in which a string is threaded through the hole left by a pericing and tied at the front of the tongue. The idea is to tighten the string as time goes by, which will eventually…
No not at all. i mean it could be if he liked guys but if not then no. he could be getting it to satisfy his girlfriend. ____________________________ Or, astethetics(sp?). I intend on having a bifurcation performed and then having the tips of both sides of the split pierced, and trust me, I am in no way attracted to men. (PS. The bifurcation I am talking about is a tongue split)
Put your mouthpiece in your mouth. Feel the part of the tongue that touches the tip of the reed. That's the part of the tongue you tongue with. Hit the reed as if you were saying "tah, tah" but remember to have a continuous air stream. Don't stop your air, just let the tongue get in the way but only for a split second.
down the center of you're tongue, there is a major artery that splits into hundreds of capillaries. The needle going through a capillary is not going to hurt anything, but if the piercing goes too far back on your tongue you can split the artery open, causing blood to spill out rather than feed the cells in the end of your tongue. Let a professional do it.
