i have two piercings on each ear, both in the ear lobe where they can use a gun, they were no big deal. i want to get my cartilage pierced, but they have to do that with a needle now because a gun can hit certain nerves that can give you brain damage and it overall is just too much force and not the right kind of force for that part of the ear, it can damage the cartilage. i got my naval (belly button) pierced and it was obviously done with a needle and wasn't near as bad as i was expecting.
I have 2 on each ear, and another pair which have gotten closed up again. My first one was done when I was still a baby, my second one I got when I was 19. My first pair with needle, my secons pair with gun (thankfully!) It didn't hurt when they shot, but as soon as I go out into the freezing winter air, my ears hurt real bad. They also mostly hurt if I don't position them nicely on my pillow.
All my piercings are on the earlobes though, none on the cartilage. If you want on the cartilage, then I think the gun is not allowed anymore. You'd have to take the needle.
