I apologize for my lack of posts recently. WordPress has a strange affinity to logging me out all the time and I’m really getting fed up with it.
This entry is about the infamous tongue ring. This is one that I haven’t tried myself, and don’t plan to. It’s just one of those piercings that makes me shudder when I think of getting it done.
There are several different versions of the tongue ring, all of which look interesting (albeit creepy).
This is your standard tongue piercing. It is placed in the center and there is only one piece of jewelry.
This is the same thing, only with multiple piercings going down the center.
These are called venoms. The BME Encyclopedia describes them as “side-by-side off-centre tongue piercings, named after the placement of a snake’s fangs.” Their counterparts on the lip are called snakebites.
And some people just want them all!
Although I wouldn’t want one myself, I do find them fascinating.
