If you have never been pierced before, you need to know a few things. The main question people have is; how much will it hurt? That depends upon what kind of body piercing you are getting. The most painful piercings are nipples, genitals and cartilage piercings (ear, septum). The least painful are eyebrow, navel, and tongue piercings.
The other concern many people have is; how long will it take to heal? The answer to this question depends upon several factors, being the type of body piercing you are getting (different piercings take different amounts of time to heal), the attention you pay to aftercare (carrying out the instructions you are given by the piercer after the piercing has been done), and lastly, your own body’s regenerative powers. You can refer to these body piercing aftercare guidelines (including healing times) for all types of body piercings.
