i got mine pierced when i was a couple weeks old, but in 2011 i got my 2nd piercings for my birthday, but i DO NOT reccomend getting your cartlidge pierced, its terrible, pain, a lot of girls have trouble with it, becuase it get infected.

I got my 1st ear piercing at claire's when I was 11. It only feels like a sharp little pinch, some throbbing, and then it was done. But then, 3 weeks later, they got infected. I didn't do what they told me to do if it got infected, instead I cleaned it 3 times a day and in a week, it went away. I was super lucky on that one. Good luck with yours!

Getting your ears pierced doesn't hurt, don't worry I've had it done three times cuz my holes closed up, and most recently it was two years ago. It pinches a little and can throb for a little while after, but otherwise its painless.

I got mine double pierced at Claires two years ago, then i had to get minor surgery because the person who did it told me i could take them out after six weeks, so always remember: DONT TAKE THEM OUT UNTIL SIX MONTHS HAVE PASSED!!!!! Thx 4 reading!

I got my ears pierced for my fifth birthday, they used a piercing gun because that was thirteen years ago and who knew anything about the dangers of that stuff back then anyway. They forgot to loosen my second piercing, so I'm screaming and squeezing my poor cousin's hand like a vice grip and the guy doing my piercing is freaking out trying to figure out what's wrong and my mom is totally shocked into silence and my cousin's screaming because I'm hurting her hand until one of them, I don't remember whom, figured out what was really going on and the guy fixed it, but mine was an extreme case. Just remember to remind the person doing it to make sure the earing is loose enough on your ear.

When I got my ears pierced, it hurt WAAAAAAAY less than I thought it would. It just felt funny at first and then it felt normal. I mean, my ears were a little tender afterwards if I messed with them too much, but for the most part, getting your ears pierced is pretty painless! Soo, if you're contemplating piercing your ears, I say go for it, girlies!

I got it when I was one. Then I just re-pierced them because they closed. So I remember it as nothing. It felt like nothing. No pain or anything! You won't regret getting your ears pierced! Earrings are pretty! Good luck!!!!
