It takes so long because you're sticking a needle into yourself (or hopefully getting someone else to do it for you). It takes 6/8 weeks to heal so that you can change the bar from the one you had it done with. It probably won't hurt for all that time, although it varies.

And nope, it's not unusual. It can take up to a year for piercings to heal.

Ears and tongues are slightly different though. And the retainer you want (the plastic one) shouldn't be used during the healing process. They're harder to clean and harbour bacteria easier so you could get an infection, and fiddling with it can make the piercing move or come out totally. It can also make the healing process longer, as basically it forms something similar to a scab at first and changing it can knock that off and you need to start all over again.

Piercings need a lot of looking after. You have to clean them at least twice a day while they heal, and more at first. If you can't do that, don't get a piercing.

And the more you know the better chance you have of it healing properly. It's very important to get them done at a good piercing studio. BME lets you read people's experiences in your area, so you can see what other people think. But then visit a few and ask to look round; ask them questions; see whether you like the people. Don't just go for the cheapest, go for the one that looks like they know what they're doing.

Facial piercings are not my area of expertise, as I haven't got any and don't plan on getting any. I specialise in "weirder" piercings. But they're harder to heal, and fussier.

Anyway, do lots of reseach. BME is a good starting point, but use other sites too.

Nope, they don't hurt. And there's always anaesthtic. And genital piercings generally help certain things

Mostly it's 16 for piercings, although if you're over 14 with parental consent then some places will let you. For genital piercings/more serious ones it's 18. I have no idea for tattoos as I don't like them

Tattoos are ugly, and piercings are pretty. They are very different.

with piercings when you take them out they are not so visible and most tend to totally heal over if you leave them out for long enough, leaving a small scar. tatoos are there for ever, even removal doesnt totally get rid of them, and apparently thats more painful than the tatoo.

does anyone here have a madonna/monroe piercing? theyre cool id quite like one.
