It may be infected. Go back to where you had it done and get it checked out ASAP.

You should have this looked at as soon as possible as it does look infected.
Since today is Sunday you may want to ask a pharmacist at your local drug store if they can recommend something to rinse your mouth to maybe help with the infection until you can see someone about it.

I can only recommend rinsing your mouth with 1/2 water/peroxide solution several times or even stronger peroxide solution.
Some people recommend using warm very salty water as a rinse so maybe you could try one of these for today.

This is concerning, you should ask about this where you got your piercing and also having this checked by a doctor. The swelling is bad.

It's normal to have a little redness around the piercing site for the first few days. If the problem persists, it may be infected.

A tongue piercing officially takes between six and eight weeks to completely heal. A little bit of swelling is normal after all, your tongue now has a hole in it. Still, the amount of swelling shouldnt keep you from drinking water or talking. Pain and swelling should start to subside by the end of the first week. However, your individual healing process depends entirely on how you care for your new piercing.

Youll need to be careful with the types of foods that you eat, as these can get stuck around the jewelry and make you uncomfortable. Soft, bland foods like applesauce and yogurt are preferred.

You can do a salt rinse to help minimize any pain and swelling. Ready-made rinses may be available for purchase from your piercer, or you can make your own at home. Use it several times per day at first to encourage the healing process.
