42 Tongue-Tied Innovations

From Passionate Lip Locks to Cheeky Tongue Piercings

— March 21, 2011 — Unique
These tongue-tied innovations focus on one of the most inconspicuous body parts that's normally hidden from the world. What is normally used simply for tasting and preparing foods for mastication has taken center stage in some of these bizarre tongue-tied innovations.

From passionate lip locks to cheeky tongue piercings, the wriggling muscle has been transformed into an intense attention-grabber. Some of these tongue-tied innovations might have you gagging, with tongues that have slits down the middle and ink tattooed on. Even advertisers are realizing the powerful draw that the tongue has on consumers, releasing interactive and intense tongue visuals.
