Tongue Splitting When Tongue Tied (Short Frenulum)

I have a short frenulum, short enough that I am unable to get my tongue pierced centrally, nor am I able to have venoms due to wide / branching veins.

What are the chances of me finding someone able to split my tongue for me?

I went to see Dave of modern savage in wakefield, who using the cautery laser to split tongues.

He said the only way that I would be able to get my tongue split would be to have my frenulum also cut back to free up my tongue, and even then it would be awkward due to veins branching inwards.

What are my chances of getting my tongue split, or is it off the cards entirely?

I'm 21 and have wanted this doing since I was 14, and now that I am in a position that I am happy it is something I definetly want, I find myself facing the fact I may not be able to, and its a bit gutting!

Without taking a look at the tongue in person I doubt anyone could give you a 100% definite answer.
You could post a series of photographs of your tongue on here which would allow a reasonable level of assessment.

I really don't want to remove my frenulum, though I wouldn't mind having it cut to allow my tongue to move / be split.

Is the cautery method the best way to go? for the tongue and frenulum?

What is the best method of tongue splitting?

I don't want to just go on the advice of the guy thats doing it, as he's obviously going to plug his method...


The place near me that does tongue splitting, uses the cautery method and then he gets you to gargle with hydrogen peroxide, as according to him this cuts off all the nerves/tissue and helps to prevent regrowth?

not a pro but I've never heard of gargling hydrogen peroxide, in fact I would probably be off looking for another pro to do my split if I was adivsed to gargle with something that can burn flesh and is a poison (not sure how much at what strength would do serious damage but I would not want to take a risk with that)

Hydrogen peroxide is desinfectant, but its use was also stopped in the medical industry because of the increased risks of more scarring than necessary. This is why it can be good for scarifications, but it still has to be washed off after 10 or so minutes as it can burn the skin/flesh.

I would never use it in my mouth or recommend anyone to put in in their mouth. Also, increased scarring is not what one wants when tongue splitting.

I have plans to split my tongue but then it will be scalpel and suture, no other method for me.

I've seen tongue splitting done in many ways, and cautery is definitely the best method! If you need the frenulum cut/cauterized for the sake of the splitting, do it!

I don't know about anyone in England specifically, but there are many reputable modification artists who live in Europe that very likely often travel to England for guest work, or perhaps you could go to them. :)
