Does it hurt more when you get your tongue pierced, or when you get your bellybutton pierced?

ANSWER #7 of 12

Yeah, my friend also got hers done and she told me you can barely feel it...It's probably because there's so much fat in that area instead of bones or cartilage...I got my nose pierced about a yr ago and that didn't hurt anymore than a normal ear piercings, so I'm sure you'll be fine.
Bottom line?
If you really want it done, go for it!
