Is it possible to get your tongue tattooed?

Anyone else read that Zits comic? Where Pierce’s girlfriend has her tongue tattooed? Just wondering.

I think the tongue wouldn’t work well with a tattoo. What does that taste like?

You probably could but why would you want to? In addition to the terrible pain from getting it done, no one is really ever going to see it so why would you put yourself through that?

I would think also that with the large amount of bacteria that is prevlent in the mouth area, there would be a much greater chance of infection after getting the tattoo as the tongue went throught the healing process.

I don’t think so. That’s why there’s Fruit Roll Ups.

I can’t even imagine the worlds of pain awaiting one who wants to have their tongue tattooed.

I think you could; but why would you? It’s like getting the inside of your bottom lip tattooed.

Dumb idea, forget it!

One time, I watched a guy get the inside of his lip tattooed. It said “beer” and it had 2 arrows pointing toward the back of his throat.

Definitely. There are even eye tattoos now. I don’t understand why anyone would want either, though.

You can get a tattoo just about anywhere. Any in the mouth eventually fade away and disappear because of the acids found in the saliva and the mouth in general. It wouldn’t stay. It would be hard to have it any color other than black because the tongue is mostly just muscle. One last thing to consider, anything you get is gonna look funny because the tongue stretches. It will not be an easy tattoo to do and I don’t see many parlors jumping on board for that one.

Bottom line though, yes it can be done.

The weirdest thing I ever saw was ‘you know that little punching bag thing that hangs at the back of your throat?’ I saw a guy that had that thing pierced. Why in the world would anyone do that???

Not only would I not remotely consider doing any of these things to my body, but I don’t even know why I’m reading the answers to this question.

A friend of mine did that, but since it fades so quick, she had to get it redone within 2 year or something…

@skfinkel it’s like a train wreck, you can’t help but to look.

skfinkel's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra—Yes, something like that, I suppose.

@uberbatman that first guy might just have eaten a grape Tootsie Pop. Tattooing one’s tongue bright purple is very uncreative to say the least, and makes the idea seem even more pointless to me.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@SuperMouse oh yea, i agree its a very stupid idea, but still that never stopped anyone lol.

Tattoos seem to either be really fucking awesome or “omg why the fuck did you get that…. you moron….”

toomuchcoffee911's avatar

Ew! I would never want to get my tongue tattooed; i was only wondering if it was possible.
