Your veins. Do not try to pierce your own tongue. This is a very dangerous percing and cannot be done on everyone. My sister went to get her tongue professionally done and she was informed that she could not have it done because of the location of veins in her mouth. Only a professional body piercer would be able to tell you this personalized infromation. Also, there is a high risk of infection, and these can be extremely dangerous. Trust me, my friend did hers, no, dont do it yourself, she was put in the hospital. get it done profecinally -sp?- A friend of mine wanted to get her tongue pierced but the piercer said she didn't recommend it on her. Her tongue web was too close to the tip, meaning her piercing would've to be done very near the tip, and this would give her a lisp. ___________- I would like to add that while you cannot bleed to death you can damage veins and nerves to the point where your tongue will go numb. I would estimate that 90% of people would have no trouble with having it done (professionally), but you may be one of that 10% and need to see a professional in order to know. Also, the glands in your tongue and mouth are very sensitive and necessary, when you attempt these things on your own you risk damaging them (even just a pin prick) and causing your body permanent damage, shock is also a factor because of the pain of the procedure.
