yes, you can still taste Your taste buds do not connect to a central core prior to sending the chemical compounds to your brain. Splitting the tongue will probably kill quite a few taste buds (not as many as smoking, but still bad). I do believe that taste buds can not heal, but the types are spread throughout your tongue. Each section of the outer area of your tongue has a majority to each taste, such as the tip of your tongue contains mostly sweet sensing tastebuds, but those taste buds are still found throughout your tongue.

Inflammed taste buds are usually experienced by most people during their lifetime and usually go away on their own.

Ear parts are very delicate and more so in children. Sometime ear buds can puncture the ear drum or damage it mildly while scraping wax from the canal. This causes severe ear pain in children. Even though ruptured eardrum heals by self, it might take months to heal. Hence it is best to avoid buds in children.

It could be that you are using toothpaste or mouthwash and you still have the taste in your mouth, or it may be that you are ill.

Please go see a doctor.

Can you rip off your taste buds?

Yes , and I do not advise doing so. If it is infected your mouth will heal as soon as it can. Doing so could possibly cause it to never grow back. Also it will bleed for a long time, and the germs in your mouth will leave a nasty unhealed wound, because of the open wound giving access to the tissues and blood beneath the skin. There are creams that you can buy that will take away any feeling from your taste buds. That could be used, coupled with something like anti-biotic ointment, to help have a fast and painless recovery from a painful tongue annoyance.
