127. You can't take out a tongue piercing.
It permanently closes.

If a tongue piercing is done "for sexual gratification purposes" and it's placed in the middle of the tongue, it's not for doing anything to sexually gratify a female.

Frankly, I have lots of friends with tongue piercings and it's hardly even seen.
