In brief: Good if stops use
If this tongue piercing opportunity leads to your husband stopping tobacco use, then this will become a very good thing.
If he continues to use tobacco, risk of cancer is high even without tongue piercing. Take advantage of this opportunity to stop tobacco use, or live to regret it.
