Question: Piercing Pain: Do Body Piercings Hurt?
Body piercings have been around for ages, but that doesn't mean you're a wimp if you're concerned about the pain. I still get nervous every time I get a new piercing, even though I've gotten many over the years. But that doesn't stop me from getting them, and it shouldn't stop you either.
Answer: Do they hurt? Yes. Some more than others. Some people are more or less sensitive than others, so there is no way to really say how bad a piercing is going to feel to you. But, the point is this - could you handle a really bad pain for 30 seconds? Well, most piercings last even less time than that, and most piercings are not that bad. Yes, they hurt, but it's over so fast you really don't have much time to think about it. Some will bring a tear to your eye, but I've never heard anyone screaming bloody murder from the next room. Honestly, if you're really that scared of the pain, maybe you shouldn't get the piercing. On the other hand, you can see this as a personal challenge to yourself - you can do it!
