    How old you have to be depends upon where you live. Some places you may be able to rock up to a studio at 16 without parental consent, other places there may not be a minimum age if you have parental consent, it really varies a LOT.Pain: again, different people have very different experiences, from not a lot to heaps. Where tongue piercings differ from others is that they are usually distinctly painful for a week or so afterwards. Your tongue will swell & you may have difficulty talking. You may find it necessary to live on a liquid diet for a week or so afterwards. Typically, the tongue needs to be pierced with a longer barbell to allow for swelling & you then get your piercer to change it to a shorter one a week or so later, when the swelling has gone down.The aftercare consists of avoiding alcohol & acidic foods while the piercing is healing and, as mentioned above, the liquid diet for the first week or so. You will also need to rinse your mouth after eating with a weak saline solution (1/4 teaspoon sea salt to 1 cup of water). You may also find you need to suck ice to reduce the pain.This leads me to the point that it is somewhere between difficult & impossible to hide a tongue piercing, especially while it is healing. Once it has healed you can use a clear retainer but they are still quite noticeable, especially if you open your mouth wide to laugh.

    18+ at a piercing shop, any age in the streets ( There some ppl who does piercing in the streets for anyone, no matter the age ) You clean it with listerine ( mouthwash )

    18 without parents, some will let you at 17 with parental permission. You wont be hiding easily unless you don’t talk in the presence of others. An eyebrow ring is much easier to hide with longer hair or bangs.
