Like any other piercing, tongue piercing also requires healing. Since, it is inside your mouth, you have to keep in mind that you can eat certain types of food while avoiding other types is a must. Once your piercing has healed you can get back to your old eating habits. Also you have to introduce food which will help in reducing the pain inside your mouth.
During the initial phase of piercing your tongue will remain swollen. You may end up biting your tongue more often due to this and you will also find it difficult to chew solid food. Hence, liquid diet is great until the swelling subsides. Meal replacement shakes, protein shakes and clear broth in room temperature are great for start. As soon as the swelling starts subsiding, you can introduce bland food like cold yogurt and applesauce. Baby foods and ice creams are also allowed. Cold drinks or fruit juices that have cooled off can be taken. Remember the less you have food to chew, the less pressure will be put on your tongue ring and it will heal faster.
Do remember to rinse your mouth with a relevant mouthwash or warm saline solution after anything you eat or drink.
