Are piercings just as painful to remove as tattoos are?

I've never had either, but I've heard tattoos are painful to remove, are piercings the same?

Updates:
Especially if they've been or are infected currently

  • Just take the jewelry out and most piercings will close up on their own over time...

  • I would think they just close up - Let the infection clear up and let it close shouldn't be painful

  • Removing a healed piercing doesn't hurt at all. It's just unscrewing a ball and sliding the bar out. Tattoos are burned off of your skin with a laser.

    • It's still a piercing though

  • Don't be ridiculous. Tattoo removal involves lazering the tattoo to get rid of the ink, which is obviously going to hurt like hell. To remove a piercing, you simply pull the ring/stud out of the hole it is sat through. Not painful at all.
