    Against nerves I find that a bit of sugar mixed in water always helps me. Further more you will want to eat before getting your tongue pierced. After you get it pierced you might not want/be able to eat immediately.
    Good luck!

    whenever I am going to get a new piercing I often get nervous too. I just end up getting in the car and drive to the piercer to get over my nervousness, sort of like forcing myself I suppose. I also take a lot of deep breaths along the way.

    Want to know a secret? It's not about the pain or the act of getting pierced (for me)... I have general as well as social anxiety disorder. By the time I sit in the chair to get pierced, my hands and legs are shaking slightly. I take anxiety medication but it doesn't seem to stop the shaking when I do get pretty anxious, and it's embarrassing as hell but you know what? I do it because after the first time I got a facial piercing and looked in the mirror, I loved what I saw... I refuse to let my anxiety rule me, so I keep going back.

    This actually helped a lot. Also helps that I had an AWESOME piercer who saw that I was nervous and handled it perfectly by helping me with my breathing and talking me through the entire thing from explaining how to autoclave worked to screwing on the ball. It all helped so much
