The first thing you need to know that the pain level is individual, everyone can have a different experience. There is also an opinion that the more you think piercing will hurt the less it actually will, we cannot claim that this is the truth but it is certain that the pain you imagine can sometimes be unrealistic. Depending on the body part they are on and your skin some piercings can hurt more and some can hurt less, they can also hurt only for a moment, others can hurt during the healing more than during drilling. However, aside everything we already said, piercings can still be scaled on some kind of pain level table.
Before you decide where you want to put your piercing, look at this table and then go and do it.
The least painful piercings are the ones that cause you the least pain and discomfort than any other, some people say that they do not hurt at all, but how we already mentioned pain is an individual thing. Earlobe piercing is the basic piercing, it is usually done with a needle-like it should be done, piercing your ear with a piercing gun can be slightly more painful but this is ,in general, the least painful piercing, there is no pain at all except burning sensation you can feel after piercing. Eyebrow piercing also does not cause pain during the piercing but the healing process can be tricky, that is why you have to be careful and pay attention to your eyebrow. Navel , Smiley, upper lip and tongue web piercing are also the least painful piercings.
Piercings that can cause some pain and discomfort but even if it does it lasts only for a little while, these kinds of piercings are Inverse Navel, Nostril, Septum, Ear cartilage, Lip and Tongue piercings. Most people are having a hard time believing that the septum piercing really does not hurt much, the thing is that the part of your nose that is pierced is actually a thin layer of skin not nose cartilage as people think.
The most painful piercings are the ones that cause the most pain and discomfort to your body and skin, however, this can also depend on your pain level, your anatomy and many more conditions. The most painful piercings are Nipple, Corset and Genital piercings. These piercings are said to be most painful because of the sensitive areas of the piercing. Gum and eye lids piercings are also the most painful ones but they are not so common as other types of piercings. Nerve-rich and a sensitive area are the reason of the great pain piercing causes.
