You can use a core bit, this very similar to the type of hole maker that carpenters use to put holes in doors for knobs , Only a core bit for masonary or tile surfaces is usually covered with
a carbide or diamond coating enabeling it to cut through the tile, When cutting use cold water Take a sponge dip it in a buckett of water then put the sponge on the tile squeeze the water onto the tile surface.
with two hands on the drill start cutting slowly
once you have pierced the tile put one hand on the wet sponge and one hand on the drill procede drilling and at the same time squeez the sponge. The water will then deposit on the tile and into the hole groove .The water will keep the bit and the tile from getting warm this should prove to be very succesfull.
Good luck
