I wonder if the girl purposely did that. If so, was it in part of an oral fixation?
Yes, people do do this on purpose: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tongue_splitting . One of the more gruesome body modifications if I say so myself.
How reversible is it?
Ha! They used my photo to illustrate the finished product!
The process is pretty hardcore. The end result is pretty wonderful if you can use your imagination...
How one acquaintance of mine did hers.
obfgjndfunjw3fnnmasddfjkmjgn GAH. That girl is completely and acceptably reasonably cute, and then she has to go and do something utterly creepy like split her tongue.
Why do attractive women ruin themselves with stupid body mods and ugly (read: any) tattoos?
Perhaps they have somehow failed to realize that being attractive to you is the highest purpose to which they can aspire in life.
Not quite as bad as the one who put transparent discs below their lip.
Now I remember who did this, the Lizard Man guy who used to be in the Jim Rose circus for a bit. Of course he did other things to his body so the forked tongue went with his overall oddness.
that much is obvious.
well obviously, there is only one culture that determines attractiveness, and that belongs to pushupstairs ;-)
Thank god! It's been such a drag trying to figure out what to be attracted to. Let's hear it for objective truth.
Perhaps she isn't saving herself for the suburbs?
I don't think she should flatter herself. As much as I'd like to be shocked by the quaint tribal practices of the urban freak, they still aren't showing the commitment of having a lip plate or neck rings.
Another contender for the title of objective truth. Excellent.
Am I the only one who's more disturbed by her ear weights? (or whatever that's supposed to be called)
And apart from the neck of the stormtrooperette, the quality of the tattoo ain't that bad. What's the "canvas"? Pasty arm or thigh?
Assuming it's done safely, are there any medical problems that can arise from tongue-splitting? If not I don't see how it's any worse than any other body modification. (Although I really wish she wouldn't do that greedily-rubbing-hands-together motion with the two tines of her tongue.)
"I bet she gives great helmet."
(Now guess which one I'm talking about.)
I kinda dig the split tongue, i would consider getting it done myself were it not for wanting to be employed for the rest of my life.
there are plenty of people that have split tongues with proper jobs.unless of course your job requires you to show your whole tongue off at work!
eventually, it's completely unnoticeable.
I guess with some practice & time one could edit their speaking habits so it wasn't noticeable. Maybe it's a better idea than I thought, although I'd probably have to start at step 1 which is "get tongue pierced".
"I got my tongue split. Do you like it?"
"Ugh! Hell no!"
"Oh? Really? I'll use it on you."
"Um ... I, uh ... okay."
Indeed. On the one hand, it squicks me visually. On the other hand, look at the way she can get the bits to twiddle in opposite directions...
Usually I'm pretty unfazed by the gross stuff you post here, but for some reason the tongue is really bothering me.
I'm not sure if it's the physical grossness of it, or the "bad life-decision" aspect.
The tattoo of the burlesque storm trooper leaves out the tattoo that the actual burlesque storm trooper had on her right shoulder.
That's what I was gonna say...
I fail to see how either of those are de facto "bad decision-making". To the people in particular who are so wound up about the tongue splitting, a) it's more common, and been around longer, than you might think (I looked into doing it over ten years ago), and 2) it's not nearly as noticeable as you squares seem to think it is--if she wasn't explicitly showing it off, you probably wouldn't even have noticed, even if she had an extended conversation with you. Tongue splitting generally doesn't lead to any significant sort of speech impediment, and I'd even go so far as to say that it's less noticeable than the average tongue piercing. I will say, however, that she has admirable control over the two halves.
Hear hear! I completely agree with you...and actually, I kinda find it hot. I don't think it qualifies as 'bad decision' at all, merely kinky.
Please tell me the tongue-splitting is not new to you. It was a novelty last century, maybe, but you live in SF and I swear you've seen people who've had it done.
Just because I've seen it before doesn't mean I don't still find it creepy as hell.
The tongue split girl calls herself dropaheart37 on Youtube. There's plenty more higher quality vids of her tongue there. I can't stop watching this one of the fresh split which is still red inside like rare steak, although it has stopped bleeding:http://www.youtube.com/user/dropaheart37#p/u/11/fyscROS1k9I
Gaaah! That description is enough. I'll pass.
Trends of next century:Tentacle-tongue transplants.
actually, these are some of the best decisions ever.
Now, if you could combine the two...
