A tongue piercing is a piercing that’s typically placed in the center of the tongue to avoid hitting a nerve or damaging the webbing, or frenulum, under the tongue (i.e. the part that connects the tongue to the bottom of the mouth, which is sometimes also pierced). Some people have multiple tongue piercings, either in a triangle or diamond shape, or they may have “snake bites” on their tongue, with a piercing on either side of the center of the tongue. Tongue piercings are the 2nd most popular type of body piercing after belly button piercings.
