I have been researching tongue splitting for years now and finally decided to go through with it.  For months now I have been trying to find artists close to me that will perform the procedure, all without any luck.  Throughout my research I have noticed a lot of great DIY tongue splits so I have decided to do mine myself.
 
I have done many piercings on myself (i understand that a tongue split is way different) and am well versed in aftercare, sterilization, and preparation.
 
I guess what I am asking is if some of you who have split their own tongues could maybe give me a little insight.... some things to expect that you didnt originally think about, what tools were used (more than likely a scalpel), as well as if you would recommend doing if yourself.
 
Also if anyone has had their tongues split by an artist then maybe I might be able to get a recommendation on an artist/shop to go to or your thoughts on doing if yourself now that you have had it done.
 
Feel free to private message me if you want and thanks for any information.

I did not split my own tongue, but I do cut back the regrowth myself every few months with scalpels I buy from a local medical supply store.

The best advice before you split, is to have a large gauged tongue piercing, to prevent regrowth. it's the only method I've seen with out regrowth ever occurring...go check out eatenplacenta s page for a good idea.
I won't go as far as far as to recommend you DIY- if you're dead serious you should be able to find an artist.
Where abouts are you located?
I'm sure someone could recommend someone for you.

I am located in Idaho.  I have posted several topics trying to find artists but have had no luck.
 
As for the split, I am currently only at a 10g but hope to have a 4-2g at least before i do the split.

I wouldn't do it yourself using that method. The problem is you can't get a good close look at what you are doing and with the risk of cutting the lingual artery... that's just not worth the risk.

Your best bet, would to get it done with an ec machine. I don't think it'd be too hard to find an artist, and if you can't there is always traveling, if you really want it, it's be worth the trip. Talk to some artist on here, and they will most likely be able to point you in the right direction.
