I know that this thread isn't a question as such, but I'd still like to give my two cents. my first piercing was my earlobes at 8 years old, done with a gun. It hurt a bit, but I was only 8. Did my second and third lobe piercings with a safety pin at 15. It didn't hurt at all. I stretched my first set of lobe piercings, one to 8mm one to 14mm. This hurt quite a bit, as I did it way too quickly. The one i stretched to 14mm "exploded" (it ripped in three different places exposing my cartilage. yes, that hurt A LOT!) I got my septum pierced a few months ago, and it was painless. A lot of people say this is extremely painful, but I found both the piercing and the healing to be very easy. Shortly after, I got my tongue web pierced. The piercing process was painless, however the first few days after that it was quite painful and I couldn't eat at all. I had my nipple pierced this summer, and that was a pretty painful piercing, and the healing was awful (avoid loose clothing! Tight clothes and push up bra's ftw!) The last piercing I got was my conch and I thought it was the most painful! It was my first cartilage piercing and it was sore for almost a month! I love all of them, and they were all worth it!
Btw, I'm going in to get dermal anchors on my chest on Thursday! Anything you guys feel I should know before I go in?
