So many people have tongue piercings, it’s become a bit passe. But one customer at Starlight Tattoo in New Jersey took this to the next level by piercing their tongue with 16 spikes that will haunt your nightmare. Spread around the tongue like a second set of metal teeth, this picture was actually taken two years ago. The unnamed customer has since upped the ante and added two more spikes for a grand total of 18.
This conjures images of Big Brother knocking down your door and scanning eyeballs to track your movements.

Also known as tonque bifurcation, it’s easy to describe: when a tongue is split into two. The split is made through scalpeling or surgical laser while self-modifiers achieve the looks by gradually tightening nylon bindings inserted through their tonque piercing over a long time. Though it requires a high pain tolerance, it is also – unlike most of this list – permanent.
