Tongue Dream Meanings and Interpretations


Tongue Dream Symbol – The tongue is a very special part of the body. It allows for communication, lovemaking, spitting, eating, and many other essential activities.

The tongue is perhaps the most personal part of the human body; more personal, even, than your genitals. If you dream about getting your tongue cut out it means that you have said too much to someone you know about something.

If you imagine your tongue being bitten off it means that someone is very mad at you for saying something about or to them that was inappropriate. If you dream about having your tongue pierced it means that you talk too much and need to put a stop to it. Other dreams regarding the tongue should be interpreted by the dreamer.

    I dreamed that my tounge was stuck in my front lower teeth. wasnot able to pull it out. If I do also it goes back and stuck. I dont know what does that mean. It’s weird and scary. Does anyone know whatever that is ?

  2. Last night i dreamed that my tongue had a gash in it & I just grabbed it at the half way point & started to tear across ways till the front half was in my hand & i threw it away. My tongue was healed already as i was tearing it off. No blood or anything, almost like it was not supposed to be there. But i remember it bothering me but not because i could not talk or anything. I just wanted it back & did not care if it was not joined properly like when I first ripped it off.. WTF??

  3. I dreamt of my 1st kiss plus 1st boyfriend he confessed hidden feelings and I talked confessing without even trying at some point words cam out of my mouth and I had no control. He said, he forgave me he was trying to be positive and religious. he let me follow him in his room I think he was naked in the closet with light on his head was shaved the whole time. He said, oops my bad that I saw him puting his hand out in reaction his personal part was hard to see. He just appeared in clothes of weird foreign like colors and let me hug him. Also I thought of wanting him to kiss me and he just stared at me and did it quick with no problem. Then later on I was out the door and I tryed to tongue kiss him them I felt like my tongue was stuck in his mouth his tongue was stiff around the time I came out and had orange stuff on the tip. It felt bitter and sour as I we split ways from the street, he was like huh? Mmm like there was no problem but like if slightly confused of what happened. I walked off and thought why did it taste so sour? Why was his tongue stiff like? … And then I thought is there something in my mouth that caused it then I find “white gum” sticking in my gums and I picked it out piece by peace and went to a different dream… What does this mean? Can u tell me why his tongue was stiff is it because I shared my sad and bitterness inside to him?

    I dreamt​ of a woman with three tongue they were long with sharp ends and it was like they had other mouths on them chanting something I couldn’t make out

  6. last night I had a dream I was arguing with someone and out of no where my tongue started to become numb and swollen. When I got into someone’s car so they take me to a hospital my tongue felt heavy and I opened my mouth and saw 3 large lumps. When I touched them they rolled to the tip of my tongue and then i was able to grab them. when I looked down they were magnets.

    • Haha magnets
      I dreamt I cut out my own tongue and shoved it in someone else’s mouth earlier that’s why I’m here

  7. I dreamed a cow tongue (black in color) hit me cross my face and the strangest thing i could smell it

  8. Last night I had the weirdest dream that I am starting to seek explanation for it.

    I was somewhere, it was public place is all I know with my sister. We talked when I started feeling lack of air, I couldn’t breathe and I recognized the feeling of some goey stuff in the back of my throat (happens to me in reality and I always pull that out).

    I excused myself to go to bathroom. I was already at point of starting to choke. I opened my mouth and saw giant meat lump blocking it. I grabbed it and had feeling in my fingers as if I’m grabbing tongue. I pulled it and that meat lump detached from anything it was holding onto. When I took it out, I looked at it carefully. It was just like ordinary tongue except for hole in the back to which I could fit finger and move it.

    Any idea what that could mean?

    I dreamt last night that I was in some sort of accident, leaving a portion of my tounge completely removed. I sat in a small white room which was a doctors office, I held the tounge piece to my actual tounge in hopes of re connecting it, but my tounge was gray, therefore I stopped trying to re attach it. I then went into surgery where the surgeon was hoping to do a tounge transplant, when I awoke, the point of my tounge was gray, meaning no blood was going through. That’s when I demanded the tounge be removed, but that’s when the dream ended.

    • I feel that means that you feel like you have no voice or your voice and opinions have not been heard by others. It has been overridden by a more dominant person in your life. You sincerely want to be heard and look for those opportunities to exert yourself, maybe even adopting others ideas and opinions for yourself but you know that those aren’t true for you.

    So true .. my mother is very ill and my father is struggling to take care of her and I was telling my friend that my mum who has altsimers would rather be dead if she realised . Later in the day I thought about it and realised it was a selfish thing to say as my friend had lost her mum and would give anything to have her back. That night in my dream my friend touched my mouth and my tongue started bleeding . Spookily correct wish I could of taken the word back .

  11. Had a dream bits of my tongue kept getting spit out, like it was partially too soft breaking a little off. I was spitting little pieces of it out. Looming at some of them it looked like half my tongue had come out, I could still feel half my tongue, but everything was soft, and squeeshy at the tips, eeew.

      I have had this dreams several times over the years
      I am 50 years old now and I just had it like 20 minutes ago and it woke me up and I reached for my phone and
      BAM!! Here I am
      So weird to me!!!

  12. Yesterday, I had a dream out me physically cutting off my tongue and lending it to a friend. During the dream, I was trying to communicate to my friend that he should take care of my tongue, but of course it was difficult for me to communicate since I couldn’t speak in my dream. During the dream, I physically saw my tongue laying on a bucket of ice and it was elongated in size. If you have any questions please reply to this comment. Thanks.

  13. I dreamed that my tongue was annoying me. And I kept pulling it out as it was getting longer, and knew that with my theeth i could cut it off, but i kept pulling it out because it was bothering me, never ending. What does this mean?
