Does it hurt to get pierced?

Piercings can hurt, depending on the area you’re having pierced. Fortunately, the piercing itself is over very quickly, and most of our clients tell us there is little, to no pain and or that it feels like a little pinch or flick.

Common piercing areas, like ear lobes, are low pain because there is no cartilage present. Areas with tougher cartilage can be a little more painful, but it’s over in seconds! Trust us, it’s nothing you can’t handle!

Our Piercing Specialists are always refining their techniques to make you as comfortable as possible throughout the experience. If you’re nervous about your piercing, try to relax and remain calm by focusing on your breathing – in through your nose and out through your mouth.
