Ok I had mine done with a gun and it doesn't really hurt that much, and i have a pretty low level of tolerance for pain. it's just super uncomfortable to sleep on that ear the first few nights, if you use anti-infection rubbing alcohol everyday, like three times a day, it should NOT get infected (:



Hope I helped!

A needle isnt that bad, and its more sanaitary to prevent infection and keloiding.

I had mine done with a needle and its fine. :)

Hey :) so ive had my cartilage peirced twice, and i have my tragus peirced, my nose peirced and my lobes done twice on each side. ( all with needles)

now obvously it will hurt a little bit as a needle is going through your ear. but in my oppinion, the peircing that hurt the most was my nose. and the rest of them hardly hurt. all you have to do is make sure when you get it done, take good care of it and it should heal nicely. and when its done, they look great. so its worth it!! hope this helped.

i was told a few times that it was bad to get your cartilage pierced with a gun by like different proffesionals and one doctor. so that confused me a lot. i did my own with a needle and i cant lie to you if its slow it hurts, but thats obvious. i did it again quickly and it truly didnt. especially if its done by a proffesional. just dont psyche yourself out and worry, the moment you decide to do it, do it. and i used triple antibiotic ointment on all of my piercings and they never got infected except for a couple days right after i would change rings, but mostly that was just soreness. just rub triple antibiotic all over both sides of the piercing and move it around while you do it. it worked like a charm for me

Of course it's going to hurt. xD
I got the tip of my ear done and man I regret it so much.
It wasn't worth all the crying. lol
I guess it depends. It might get infected and it might not.

But if it's something you really want, it's worth the pain right? :)
