Which hurts more: a piercing in my eyebrow or a piercing in my lip? Also, if later I want to remove it, will I have like a hole or any kind of scar?

Asked by 2late2be (2286points) June 7th, 2009 from iPhone

I’ve been wanting to pierce my eyebrow, nose, tongue or lip since I remember, but I REALLY hate needles, but lately I want to do either of those piercings, with will hurt the less and have less posibilities of infection? Any experiences? Any advice?

In all honesty, the clamp is going to hurt more than the needle. And it only hurts for a few seconds. If you can give birth (which I think you have) you can handle this… EASY.

I have no experience with either of these piercings, but just from a bacteria standpoint it seems like the lip piercing would be more likely to get infected. Our mouths are full of icky stuff. PS: I prefer the look of an eyebrow piercing… kinda’ sexy!

I’ve not had my eyebrow pierced, but I had my lip pierced. It wasn’t that bad in all honesty, but it did leave a scar when I took it out. I know several people who had eyebrow piercings, and since they’ve removed them, they have very noticeable scars.

@Allie that’s what I thought as well, I have gave birth to it 2 kids and I think I could handle a piercing, but I’m just afraid… @augustlan I actually think that a lip pierced looks sexier…

Honestly, I have a high tolerance for pain, and my lip hurt more than parts of my tattoo did.

Oh, and my lip has never gotten infected. I’ve had it since October and I have to take it out for 4–7 hours for work, and it doesn’t close up.

And I know people who’ve taken theirs out, there is scarring but it’s minimal, and mederma helps so it’s almost invisible.

I don’t know which hurts more, but I do know that after I removed my first naval piercing, I was left with a scar.

How is a lip piercing not in the way of practically everything?

essieness's avatar

@Jeruba It is. Which is why I took mine out.

@2late2be – I would avoid the tongue because of the possibility of very costly damage to the teeth google page

I’d also give you a good friend’s phone number, if she wouldn’t disown me! She spent almost $2700 fixing her teeth, after having an oral piercing.

I didn’t look at lip piercings, but I would look into them, a bit, before doing one!

Also…little hands like to pull on shiny things! Be careful!! :)

@Jeruba It is but I don’t mind.

I have my lip pierced, it doesn’t get in the way. I have occasionally bit down on it, causing pain. But, that’s rare.

When I got my lip pierced, it felt like a bug bite…a sharp pain, but not lasting. And then your lip feels like it’s swollen, but it’s not.
Eyebrow didn’t hurt me, but it left a scar which annoys me. It’s faded over the years. It most likely left a scar because I stretched the hole (bad idea)

I had my eyebrow pierced for a few years. It really didn’t hurt, just stung a little. However, an eyebrow piercing is also VERY prone to infection, since your eyebrows function as a dirt-catcher to keep stuff out of your eyes. It’s not always easy to get it to heal. I took mine out a year ago and the scar is hardly noticable now, but you could see it clearly for a while.
