taking my self-representation thoughts to some hypothetical extremes, vague body horror 

know what would be dope is a few thousand dollars set aside that wasn't necessary for life crucial things so i could get my tongue split and other body mods and tattoos. oh well guess ive got the next best thing, a friend with tattooing supplies i can borrow and the painful tie off method!

@root Tie off method?

@drwho it's where you get piercings proceduraly further back on your tongue and tie off with floss from the hole to the middle of the tongue and you basically wait for it to die and split and create new tastebuds on the sides. very painful, not fun. but so is $500 lmao

@root o.o

That's certainly a thing.

How long would such a thing take, anyway? I'd guess the better part of a year, given how long it takes even a single tongue piercing to heal. Definitely easier than than finding someone to do it surgically, though.

@drwho the neat thing about getting it done professionally too is they use a laser so it immediately cauterizes it and will heal faster so that sounded nice in comparison lol but yeah it would take at least 6 months i believe?

@drwho *for the tie off

re: taking my self-representation thoughts to some hypothetical extremes, description of body horror 

@root Probably, yeah. The tongue is a really weird mechanism when compared to other parts of the body, and hydrostatic structures just... take a while.

Six months for 'just' a piercing sounds about right. One of my partners had one for a couple of years and it was no picnic he says.
