Stretching your ears shouldn't be painful at all, if you do it right. As long as you go slow, and use vitamin E oil, to lube things up, it should go smoothly, I've gotten my ears to 00g and they've never hurt, my lip piercing however hurt a little bit, piercing it wasn't bad, just a little sting, but the swelling was horrible.
*stretching not gauging. Stretching hurts a lot more, your ear lobes are sore for a day, but it's really not that bad. Piercing your lip is no pain at all, until it's super swollen & the back of the stud is indenting your lip, then it stings but thats pretty much it. Both are tolerable.
gauging your ears by far. the actual piercing of the lip.. doesn't hurt. the swelling.. sucks, but doesn't really "hurt" ear gauging is pure agony. or was for me. everyones different.
really cool ii have a size 0 in my ears so everyone says i should be able to take the piercing thanks for the tip.
lol yea stretching is far by the worse everyine says its like a pinch. thats it an stings a lil.
