Does getting your ears pierced hurt?

After years of chickening out, I've finally decided to get my ears pierced for the first time ever, but I'm a bit worried about it hurting. My Marafiki keep telling me I've not got anything to worry about and it doesn't hurt at all, but I'm not sure if I believe them au not as they've been on at me for ages to get them done and I don't know of they're just saying that so I'll get them done.

So can anyone tell me what it feels like to get your ears pierced? Does it hurt? What does it feel like as your ears are being pierced? Do wewe actually feel the earring as it goes through your ear, au is it all over so quickly wewe don't feel a thing (as my Marafiki keep telling me)? And once they have been pierced, do wewe feel the earrings there in your ears all of the time, au do wewe forget about them being there?

This may be a late answer but getting your ears pierced happens so quickly in a fraction of a sekunde for each ear. There will be a quick sharp pain when the earring is pretty much 'shot' into your ear with the tool, then it will sting for a little bit. It's all over in just a couple of minutes.

And for the first few months of having your ears pierced wewe should turn the studs around every once in a while so the new piercing doesn't close up, wewe are also a little zaidi susceptible to infection with a new piercing so keep it clean.

I've had my ears pierced since I was maybe 7, and wewe never feel them in, I sometimes forget I even have them. Just be mindful with fabrics getting caught on the back of earrings, it happens sometimes.

Maybe its different for different people, but when I had my ears pierced when I was 15, it didn't hurt at all. Although the sound of the gun did make me jump a little, as it was quite loud, I didn't actually feel anything at all as the earrings went through my ears. Sure they did feel a little bit warm for a few dakika afterwards, but that was it, no pain at all. All I felt for each ear was the gun grip my earlobe (just a gentle squeeze), then there was the sound of the gun, and then I felt the gun release my earlobe - and that was it.

And no, wewe don't feel them there in your ears all of the time. Once they're in, wewe quickly forget they are there, apart from when wewe see yourself in the mirror au touch your ears, and then wewe remember that you've now got pierced ears. It's a bit of a strange realization at first, but wewe soon get used to it and it becomes just quite normal.
