I have plans for a tragus piercing, a vertical cleavage surface bar (after I get my boobs reduced), and a genital project... triangle and a VCH. Lots of little bits of metal in me!

my best friend plans to get a septum ring sooner or later (the area right between your nostrils, like the things bulls have), which seems extremely painful. But they'd look gorgeous once they're done. I personally want a stud right below my lower lip, and maybe on my ears. I was thinking of getting a bellybutton ring, but since I hate showing off my belly I doubt that'll happen. nor do I plan to get my genitils pierced. XB; I won't be showing those off to anyone, either.

though pierced penises, to me, are horribly sexy. :nods:

pardon me if I'm wrong, but when you get your tongue pierced, doesn't that kill some of your taste buds? I mean, you're penetrating the middle of your tongue, so that has to do something to the way your food tastes, right?

My friend had her clitoris pierced! ohmy.gif No THANK YOU very much! dry.gif She says it's fine now and actually "enhances" her "sexual practices" wink.gif The only draw back, according to her, is the lack of sex for a month which is typical of her! laugh.gif

You have no tastebuds in the filiform papillae (in the centre of the tongue).

isn't there a 5th taste that the tounge picks up on called umami (not making this up) essentially picks up MSG (what chinese takeaway tastes of) contained in food

/me watched a documentry on it
DarkInferno
its actually a savoury 'freshness' made up of IMP and MSG...

Its made up of a combination of two protein subunits called T1R1 and T1R3

T1R3 is one of the receptors responsible for tasting natural sugers...and from my research into the web it would appear that it share a lot with the sweet taste...so my guess would be that you taste it on the tip of your tongue.

Are you guys sure you had your actual clitoris pierced? Because that's VERY rare. A clit hood, vertical or horizontal, is MUCH more common, and usually what people mean when they said they've had their clit pierced.

Me thinks if you don't know what it is, you shouldn't have it.

Pretty much, but not entirely true. Filiform pappillae do not have taste buds, this is true, but the taste buds aren't nearly as localized as the diagram you showed suggests (it's a bit of a common misconception). It's a generalized location, which means you would find some taste buds for sweet on the sides, or taste buds for salty on the tip, etc., but for the most part, the generalizations you gave are correct. However, there will be some (a few) taste buds on the middle of the tongue.

That being said, there's a ton of tastebuds on your tongue, and piercing one area is not likely to affect the whole of your taste.
