Top Ten Painful Types of Piercings

Piercings will hurt to an extent.
But some piercings can cross the line and make the experience so painful!
Here are the piercings to avoid if you cannot handle pain very well....
The Top Ten
1 Genital Piercings

The genital area is the most sensitive part of our body. When a needle is pushed through, it obviously will hurt - and a lot too!

Why would anyone do that? I saw a guy remove his scrotum piercing at the airport. All I thought was "ouch!"

2 Industrial Piercing

This is when a large bar gets put through your helix and forward helix. Many reported that the pain was a 9/10 and it was unbearable!

Since you have to get two holes pierced at once, and in two very painful places too!

3 Nipple Piercings

The nipple is a very thick piece of skin to pierce through. You will probably find it very, VERY PAINFUL and sore.

4 Snug Piercing

It's hard to explain, just search it up.

See the awkward location? Looks painful, right? Oh trust me, it's one of the most painful piercings you could get.

Hurt for days. Constantly on Panadol and Nurofen for days post-piercing. Very odd and irritable piercing.

But don't get it if you can't take a mid-scale piercing!

5 Belly Piercing

My mom pierced me at home, but she was fixated on not piercing it the usual way. Instead, she pierced the navel scar itself. It took her a massive amount of time to push the needle through the cartilage-like scar tissue. Two more family members had to hold me down and cover my mouth. I didn't even want to get my belly pierced, let alone get a true navel piercing. Very painful experience.

Belly button piercings involve a thick piece of flesh being pierced with a hollow needle. Yikes!

It is even more painful if you pierce it with a flat belly since there is muscle there!

6 Anti-Tragus

It's like a tragus piercing, but it's placed just above your earlobe (that cartilage bit of skin). Pinch that. See how painful it is already?

Imagine a large needle being pushed through. Owww!

7 Lip Piercing

Specifically a medusa or a vertical labret piercing. Again, you are being pierced through thick skin, so obviously, it is going to hurt!

8 Septum Piercing

Why a septum piercing? Well, this is because if you get it incorrectly or crookedly pierced, it could HURT!

You need to get it done through the sweet spot (the fleshy bit of your septum).

Eh, I don't like septum piercings anyway, you'll look like a bull.

9 Tongue Piercings

Many do say that it hurts because of the thickness of the tongue! You are piercing through a muscle!

Plus, you only have to eat soup for like two weeks.

10 Nose Piercing

This was the most painful piercing I've gotten. You'd be surprised at how painful a nostril piercing can be.

Many do find that when pierced with a needle, the nose piercing hurts quite a lot!

The Contenders
11 Helix Piercings

My 5th holes are lower helix piercings, and they hurt more than my lobes when I had them pierced on both ears on 11/23/2021.

As a side note, I'm considering possibly getting double upper helix piercings in the future, but I'm not sure how well they'd look on my elf-shaped ears.
