So I'm gettin ear piercings soonish. My question is how bad do they hurt? I'm honestly kinda scared of that and also the same thing for lip piercings? How much worse than a shot is it? Cause I can take those to the arm easily they don't even hurt.

The amount of pain you'll experience depends on what you're getting pierced, how you're piercing it, and your own pain tolerance. Personally, I don't think piercings hurt very badly at all. I recommend you pierce it with a needle instead of a gun because the gun doesn't actually pierce the skin, it only punctures it. It seems counter intuitive because we're raised in a needle-fearing society, but needles hurt less. I've never had my lip pierced, but I have four piercings on each of my earlobes, two on my left cartilage, an inner conch piercing in my left ear, a tragus piercing in my right ear, and an industrial piercing on my right ear. The lobes felt like a pinch, the cartilages felt like a stronger pinch, the inner conch felt like a very strong pinch, I didn't feel my tragus being pierced at all, and the industrial piercing itself felt like a pinch like my cartilages did, but it hurt when the bar was put through. Personally I think getting a shot is worse. When you get your piercings, make sure to keep them clean or they could get infected, which could hurt. Pay extra attention to keeping your lip piercing clean because the mouth is full of germs, which makes a new piercing there vulnerable to infection. Good luck! (:1
