Helix Piercing watch

    • Thread Starter

    I was thinking about getting a helix piercing but I'm really unsure because I don't know how much it hurts. I've always thought I had a low pain tolerance, however, I have a tongue, nose and navel piercing, and I was fine. The pain of the piercings didn't faze me. But, I'm still nervous. On the scale of 1-10 (1 being 'ah, it was barely a pinch' and 10 being ' Oh my god, I want to pass out'). If you could compare it to the pain of a nose piercing that would be great. Thank you!

    for comparison, i’d say my nose piercing was about a 5. my helix was a 1, maybe 2? i didn’t even realise it was pierced until the piercer handed me a mirror 😂 it did ache a bit afterwards but my nose was far worse
