One of the most common questions asked about getting a new piercing is “how much will it hurt?”
Depending on the body part and type of skin or cartilage, some piercings hurt a lot more than others.
If you are considering one of the following piercings, I am not trying to put you off the idea. This is just so you know what to expect if you get one of these piercings done.
the piercings that hurt the most in order of pain rating:
Most painful piercings
Note: Pain levels can vary from person to person. These pain ratings come from a cross-section of many people.
#3 – Eyelid piercing
Yes, people really do get their eyelids pierced!
I mean right through the actual eyelid, the jewelry makes physical contact with the eyeball.
Have you ever had a stye on your eye? Well, I can imagine it would feel like having one all the time, except made of metal – so very cold and hard.
This is a relatively new craze, so there haven’t been many horror stories yet or “eyelid piercings gone wrong” photos. It is safe to assume that we will be seeing more and more of these featured in the news and on the web in years to come.
Any one who has ever had an eye infection of any kind will tell you straight away that you do not want to go messing with your eyes!
Do yourself a favor and take my advice: do not get your eyelid pierced!
#2 – Nipple piercing
The nipple is a naturally sensitive part of the body, for both men and women.
There are lots of nerves in the nipples making them very sensitive. This is a recipe for pain when you stick a needle straight through.
Any area of the body which can be sexually stimulated is ultra sensitive and this is why the nipple is one of the top ranked most painful piercings.
So if you want this piercing done, brace yourself!
#1 – Genital piercings
Genital piercings. The most painful parts of the body to get pierced!
Why is that?
Well, much like the nipples, the genitals, both male and female have lots of nerves. This makes these areas of our bodies very sensitive to physical stimuli.
The nerves that give us intense pleasure during sex are the very reason that any form of genital piercing will make you screech in agony as streams of water run from your eyes.
Like I said before though, don’t let me put you off!
A girl I know claims she had an orgasm when she got her clit pierced, just as the needle went through!
Like I said, the experience is different for everyone.
If you really want to get an intimate piercing, go for it! Just make sure you go to a piercer who knows what they are doing.
I would not recommend doing this kind of piercing at home. Seriously, just don’t.
If done correctly, genital piercings can enhance sexual experiences for both men and women. They also add a bit of decoration to your bits and make them look nice.
If you get this piercing done, make sure to take good care of it and keep your jewelry clean!
To be honest, ranking the all the other piercings would be near enough impossible.
Any part of the body which is made of cartilage is more painful to pierce than thin skin. For example the septum piercing, helix piercing on your ear, well actually any ear cartilage piercing will hurt a bit more.
Just remember; everyone is different.
You never know, you might hardly feel any pain at all!
