How bad does it hurt to get an ear pierced with a 10 gauge needle?

    No more than smaller needles really. For me an 8g hurts as much as an 18g. It’s a sharp hot pinch, that dulls into a warm throb, possibly with tiny sharper tingles of pain for a few minutes. Then just a distant ouch for a day or two. It will be tender for months, but after a few days it usually won’t start throbbing or aching for no reason.

    Eat well, drink lots of water, if you’re a girl go after your period, not just before, and get lots of sleep. Have a snack or juice just before the piercing to keep your blood sugar up. Talk to the piercer to calm yourself, breath deeply, and try to relax your entire body.
