ANSWER #1 of 17

No it is NOT done by a piercing gun.. that also is illegal as it has bacteria on it. It is indeed done with a needle which is sterilised and never used again. Ears only hurt because you were expecting pain. Most shops do it at age 16 with parental consent but 18 without.

You could put ice on it but it wouldn't be worth it as it just freezes your skin, vessels and blood as well as your pores.. therefore SOME piercers won't do it because it is too risky. However some may but they would have to be very confident to not do something wrong.

Numbing cream/spray cannot go anywhere near the mouth as it contains chemicals and no one knows if they will have a reaction to it. The hole is through the fleshy bit to the mouth so some chemicals WILL get in if used.

However, do you REALLY want your lip pierced?? It can look horrible on some people sometimes whereas others it fits them just perfect. People may think ewww it looks like a mole or something. If you decide to take it out it not only will be a waste of money (around £20 - £35) but it will leave a tiny scar.. but noticeable to some people.

ANSWER #2 of 17

Ok well.. i have had a few things pierced and plenty of people have cringed and said oh my god didn't that hurt. The most "urgh" one people think is the tongue which i have got done. That hurt only slightly. Just a quick 10 second pain then it is all over.. however with a lip it is less painful as it isn't a muscle. It is simply just a piece of fleshy skin. It will become sore and irritable first few hours.. even days. Eating can be weird and sore. AND NO THEY WON'T NUMB IT.. it is against the law as it is near the mouth.

The only way it will hurt you real bad is when you build up the ancipication beforehand, it will make your adrenalin rush and heart beat fast.. this is mental pain. therefore you are expecting it and it doesn't come. In England you do not need to be 18 but different shops have different rules

ANSWER #8 of 17

lip piercings are are breeze. i've had mine done twice. barely hurts when they do it, and it's only a little sore after. and taking care of it is pretty easy.

i'd say it costs anywhere from 35 to 60 per piercing, and they will not numb you.

and any respectable piercing place won't pierce anyone under 18 without parental concent.
