I do not think this is particularly something to worry about, especially if you have had it for a long time without any significant changes. The most likely possibility is that you have spots of pigment in the tongue. These are caused by collections of pigmented cells called melanocytes, and they are really quite similar to moles and freckles that occur on the skin. Just like moles and freckles, these spots on the tongue are usually benign.
