i have my tongue split. it gives you a speech problem only until you learn to adapt to it and speak normally again. its a life changer, for me it was in a good way. I love that I did it and I don't regret it, but its a personal choice. I've had mine split for a good 5 or 6 years now. sometimes you need to go back to have it re-sliced because it will heal up a bit. your best bet is to have your tongue pierced first, gauge it to a 10, then after that heals get it split up to the barbell. even tho having your tongue split is a spiritual transformation for most people who have it done, some are required to get it sown back together which WILL permanently affect your speech and taste buds forever(for example: the military will do this). you don't artificial material to reconnect a tongue, just need to slice the insides and sow together. it will form the way it was to begin with except for the taste buds and speech.
overall I say do it and see for yourself, but make sure its a decision you're prepared to live with. do research on it instead of asking people their opinions because unless you have it done then people only speak rumors they've heard...which aren't true. you'll get a lot of comments, and people putting it down, but I think it was worth it. people are always interested by it and some are disgusted, but they learn to live with it because its not their body.
if you go through with it, I guarantee you'd love it (once its healed and you learn to talk again). just be sure, you don't wana live with something you regret and worst of all you wouldn't wana take the chances of needing it to be sown back together.
sorry so long, but I hope these FACTS have helped better than peoples comments and opinions.
I think that's awesome. I really like the look of a split tongue but I don't know if I would ever get it done on me. It would be such an odd new experience making out with a girl with a split tongue. Just be 100% sure you want it done beforehand. A lot of people will be grossed/weirded out by a split tongue and its not like a piercing that you can just take out if you don't want it anymore. If I ever were to get my tongue split I think it would be after I was 30 and I know what I'm doing with my life. Just don't rush into it.
Well it gives you a speech impediment and is non fixable, tattoos and piercings can be fixed (Exeption of Large Gauges require surgery) But yo can not reconnect the tongue without artificial material wich will always be there and will never feel right.
that is seriously f***ed up why on earth would you do that to yourself? the human body makes a tongue that shape for a reason. you wouldn't go splitting your nose in two or your eye in two or your leg in two would you? no! these parts of the body are ridiculously carefully developed and anyone who does that is seriously seriously f***ed up. end of story.
