Not really a fan of peircings myself. I never thought they looked that good, but when I was younger I got a few, because my best friend at the time was into the whole goth, pericing scene. They hurt like hell. Even afterwards, and they get constantly infected. I swear thats why people with so many peircings are always so gloomy, that shit hurts! And you need to keep wearing it, or it will start to close up, and if you put it in after it starts to close up it can cause you to bleed, and ofcourse get infected.
Earlobes, dont hurt as much, especially if they use that gun looking thing, but still more than people think they do. Anyone who has gotten a peircng always plays it off like no big deal, it never hurt and it still doesn't, but beleive me they are full of shit! Ok maybe the earlobe, I don't know why, that one didn't bother me too much, but all the others definitely did.
Needless to say it was a disaster. To this day, when I see people with a ton of peircings, I can't help recall my pain and ask myself why they voluntarily put themselves through that.
