To clarify, I do not mean the flap of skin underneath the center of tongue. I
mean the extremtely small pieces of skin than hang down from the sides on the
bottom of the tongue. They are full of nerves. I wonder if they would be safe
to pierce? They may be the "lingual n." though that's a wild guess.
Thank you very much
