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 friends 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 or 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 you actually feel the earring as it goes through your ear, or is it all over so quickly you don't feel a thing (as my friends keep telling me)? And once they have been pierced, do you feel the earrings there in your ears all of the time, or do you forget about them being there?
