I got my upper lobe pierced with a piercing gun five days ago. It was okay till yesterday when I slept on my ear and now I feel unpleasant pain. Also it's red and a little bit warm and swollen. I clean it three times a day with an alcohol. Should I be worried about infection? Can I take the piercing out?

Based on my past experience with piercings, I'd recommend you carry on using rubbing alcohol and just avoid touching it otherwise, even though it can be tempting. It can take up to a few weeks to fully heal. I think it's a bit early to worry about infection but if this persists maybe ask for professional help

You should NEVER use a piercing gun!!!! Especially not on the cartilage part of your ear.

Yeah I know. I was in doubt but my friend and cousin got their ears (cartilage) pierced that way so I wanted to try:ashamed2:
