In brief: See a dentist

Black spots may vary, caused by pigmentation, exposure to chemicals, pre-hairy tongue, tongue piercing or oral cancer.
Rec.: see your dentist for evaluation and diagnosis. It will help you determine whether or not your condition is serious and what kind of treatment is necessary. Good luck.
