Yeah of course, I mean when I got my ears lobes pierced, i had it done 4 times, each time they became infected and closed up, then my 5th time it was successful. That was used by a gun. I'm much more comfortable with a gun though because that way I'm not thinking about the actual needle or seeing the actual needle pierce me.
(People say look away but it never works, I'm always way to anxious) I'm 16 btw, and I'm a big 'wuss' hahah. I hope I build up my courage to get my nose an my belly done the most? But if I get them then my lobe will be nothing! Compared..
Thanks for your input

I would warn you against the use of guns etc, but I mean for the piercings you're getting it's really not an issue. I'm not sure if it's POSSIBLY to do nostril and navel with a gun - probably, if you really try - but ANY place that has even the SLIGHTEST clue what they're doing won't even attempt to do that. And the good news is that for your belly button, you'll probably be lying down, and that means you would really have to TRY to see what was going on. I'm not squeamish - I'd gladly watch if I could - but I couldn't even see it.
I was worried like hell for my bellybutton piercing the entire way to the studio, just thinking that it had to hurt because someone was making a hole through my skin. But afterwards, the piercer told me that people really often think that way about it, but it's just not true.
Getting it done with a needle is actually a lot less painful than with a gun, because much less trauma is caused to the piercing site, as the needle glides through your skin, whereas the gun just forced itself through bluntly. Also the guns can't be properly sterilised.
Honestly, you have nothing to worry about. Take a friend, squeeze their hand, and you'll be more than fine. It's worth it in the end, as the pain is momentary, and nothing compared to the satisfaction of the piercing.
