Hi there!

For some time now I’ve been considering getting my tongue pierced, letting heal and stretching it up to a larger gauge then getting it split. However, I do have a somewhat prominent sub-lingual vein, such that it’s easily visible by just pressing my teeth against it. I know that it is possible to pierce around the vein, but I was curious as to whether a split would be feasible.

Thanks much!

Most reputable body modification artists encourage people to NOT have a ‘tongue anchor’ before a split. You are far better to have nothing in there before the procedure as usually the split goes much further back than you can actually pierce.

The vein isn’t a big problem as any experienced piercer will be able to navigate around it and manipulate the tissue so that it is still straight and not hitting any veins. Good mod artists will stitch the tongue closed, stopping any excessive bleeding and swelling.

I have been piercing tongues for over 8 years now and I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen a vein go from one side of the tongue to the other, so it would never be problematic for a split.
