A lingual hemorrhage is bleeding in the mouth, specifically the tongue.

While the tongue is highly vascularized (served by the deep lingual artery/vein) and will bleed during the tongue splitting procedure and sometimes from tongue piercing, severe and uncontrollable bleeding is rare. Sufferers should seek immediate medical attention.
