In brief: Painful piercing!
Ok, you are making me a little nervous here.
You wrote” i pierced & have pain in my tongue.” did you pierce your own tongue & if so, how sterile were the instruments? Tongue piercing comes w continued pain as well as swelling, tenderness, bleeding & bruising for around 5 days. If the swelling makes it difficult to breath then you need emergent medical evaluation to ensure that your airway does not.

become compromised. If the tongue is seeping drainage that is other then white-colored or that is malodorous – then please seek medical care for a possible infection. Piercing your tongue is quite different than a small piercing in your ear lobe.

In brief: If I had a hole...
...In my tongue, i would be in pain too.
If the pain persists, see a doctor and make sure it's not infected.
