What are the risk of getting a double tounge piercing?… how long does it take for it to heal?… does it get infected more often than the normal piercing? Do u have to take special care for being double?

Oral piercings very very rarely get infected, unless you over clean them or use an alchohol based mouth rinse - even then its still unlikely.

Double tongue piercings are a little trickier to heal, because you can ‘knock’ them together and cause irritation. I wouldn’t be too concerned about that as long as you see an experienced piercer who can place them in the correct spot to minimize aggravation.

You should look after a double tongue piercing (two on the sides or two in the center) exactly the same as a normal tongue piercing by using alcohol free mouth rinse twice a day, ice it up and eat soft foods for a couple weeks.

As always make sure your piercer has double tongues in their HEALED portfolio and do a consult first to make sure that you can get them done. Sometimes (if you have a little tongue) you can’t get two down the center at the same time, or they will hit each other too much.
