how long does it usually take for a tongue piercing to heal up? i mean, like, talking normally and such? i`m planning on getting it done on the 20th or 21st. and i have a modeling shoot on the 25th. will it be better by then? also, does anyone have any tips as to how to help it heal/how to keep it from getting infected or whatnot? also - anyone in MD know any good piercers? thanks.
