How long is the first tongue ring supposed to be?

That is based on the tongue size ( not all tongues are created equally ) the thicker the tongue the longer the barbell. This is to make room for swelling. Your professional body piercer will check your tongue and size you for the right barbell to do the job. Two weeks after the piercing is done the swelling will have eased off and a shorter barbell can be put into the piercing to avoid doing dental damage.

I got my tongue pierced over a week ago and my friend got her's a year before me. She drank on the third night after her piercing, and the swelling on her tongue went down.

My tongue ring is almost completely healed now.

No. The ear piercing gun and stud are designed to be used on earlobes only. The tongue is a complex group of two major muscles joined by connective tissue and convered by over 10,000 tastebuds and pain receptors. Tongue piercing is intended to go between the muscle groups at least* (*at minimum) to a depth of 3/4 of an inch from the tip of the tongue. The ear piercing gun will not have the reach nor will the studs be long enough to allow for the swelling the will take place after the piercing is done.
