Hi! I was wondering how bad a navel piercing hurts, I'm 18 and I'm really nervous to get it I've heard people say it didn't hurt and others that it hurts a lot

I would say the majority of people say it feels like a quick pinch, similar to getting a shot. But don’t worry about it! Remind yourself that no matter what it feels like, nothing bad is going to happen- It’s just a sensation. Embrace the excitement of the anticipation, and enjoy the rush of acquiring your new adornment. Our ability to feel is what makes life so precious- getting pierced is a wonderful way to remind you of how special that is!
