ANSWER #1 of 14

it depends on your pain tolerance really.
but you should aslo be worried about the peicing itself
be aware that the side of your lip will swell up for about 2 days
as well as all the other things that could go wrong, youll most likely avoid them if you get it dont by a trusted profesional
and dont be afraid to ask them any questions you have on it.
also lip peircings take around 3+ months to heal and its not advised that you change the peircing untill at least 3 months


ANSWER #2 of 14

kay well it depends where on your lip you want pierced?!
like side or middle.
I've had my middle pierced twice.
the first time I my firend did it with a big needle, in the bathroom at school.
I didnt hurt much at all but I passed out for bout 20 min.
but like a week later it got really purple and thats when it hurt I couldnt even touch near my lip it hurt.
so basically GET IT DONE BY PROFFESIONAL who knows what there doing.
the second time I did it by myself at home.
yeah I didnt learn from the first time, I was stupid back then.
but anyways I did it very slowly it took like an hour.
it kinda hurt when you do it slow.
but if you go to a professional and get it done it won't hurt trust me.

yeah hope I helped, keep it clean go to PROFESSIONAL.
love y'all

Lip and nose piercing will it hurt ???

ANSWER #3 of 14

Lips don't hurt at all.
But, it depends on:

-your personal pain tolerance
-how thick your lip is
-how fast the piercing is done

I pierced my own lip un numbed and it didn't take long. When I got my snake bites, I have my friend, David, do it for me. He took a needle to my lip after measuring it, and, 1, 2, 3, bam. it was through all the way. Didn't hurt at all :)

I also have my septum and one side of my hip done. I did those my self as well.
Just make sure to keep your lip clean.

How bad does geting your lip pierced hurt?

ANSWER #5 of 14

Tattoos don't compare to piercings at all. I have 8 tattoos, and used to have my lip pierced. It is all based on your pain tolerance, just because it hurts for one person, doesn't mean it will hurt for you. Same as the other way around. So, theres really no way of knowing how much pain you personally will feel.

Does a lip or ear piercing hurt more?

ANSWER #9 of 14

A little.
I pierced my own lip once. I had to take it out though, cause my grandmother said she would disown me if I kept it in. Lame, right? -.-
Anyway, its going to sting a lot, I can tell you that as a fact.

But, what got me tripped out is that my friend today had told me that some people who pierce their own lip can get their whole side of their face paralized.
Im not sure if that is right.
I surely doubt it thought, I suppose.

How badly does it hurt to get a tattoo on your lip?
ANSWER #11 of 14

I just got mine done, so hopefully this will be helpful.
If you can handle all that, you can definatly handle a lip piercing. I am twelve years old and I didn't even flinch when he stuck the needle through. But, It hurts slightly more when the piercer tightens the hoop, if you get a hoop.
And don't wash it too much. Twice a day is enough.
I washed mine too much, and it is irritated and sore now, so I have to wait until the pain goes away.
Wait four months before changing the ring, and wash it with anti bacterial soap and warm water. Don't use mouthwash if you don't have to. Brushing your teeth and using soap and water is the best way to go. Don't play with the ring either. Good luck!
