Piercings are not too painful. I have my ears and nose done and the pain of the nose piercing only lasted a second and there was no pain after it was done. I never took anything for my tattoos either. If you are really worried about the pain there is a numbing cream called Emla (spelling) and I used it for my daughters ears before I got hers pierced and she didn't feel a thing. Put it on the area that will be getting pierced about 20 min before the piercing and you shouldn't feel anything.
