    I did a self pierce myself. My ear took about 3 to 4 months to heal. It is absolutely painful the next day; however, it didn’t hurt at all when i pushed the needle through (thanks to the ice). If you want to self pierce, be ready to have pain everyday for months.

  2. oh man, are you serious it hurt for months?
    i just did mine two days ago,
    it really hurts but i thought the pain might stop in a few days.
    also i have a headache, but that night be from something else.

  3. Did my own self piercing yesterday before reading this article. All i did was use a lit match to sterelize a safety pin and pushed that through my ear, without ice to numb it. it didnt hurt when i did it and it still doesnt hurt now. i suggest washing in salty water.

  4. is it really that painfull i pierced it myself but my parents got mad at me and told me to take it out so i did and i am pretty sure i cant go how ever long it takes to heal without them noticing so i will probably have to wait =/

  5. I just self-pierced my ear like 30 minutes ago. It hurts haha. I used a needle and burned it before I pushed it through and cleaned the area too before. I hope it doesn’t get infected. :/

  6. My friend pierced a third 3rd hole on each of my ears with a safety pin, and they did hurt for a couple of months afterwards. However, I wouldn’t say the pain was unbearable, more like a mild irritation. They got infected a couple of times which lengthened the time they took to heal. My advice to anyone looking to do a self piercing would be to keep your new piercing clean, and avoid touching it as much as you can.

    Still, I love my third hole and it was totally worth it :)

  7. If you actually think this is safe and you DO THIS SHIT, you are a fucking moron.

  8. Oh god, really? Telling people HOW to harm themselves. God these tips are awful. And self-piercing, in any terms, is awful. Go to a freaking professional, that’s what they are there for!

    1) Alcohol (DOES NOT sterilise and is WAY too harsh for fresh piercings)
    2) Pin (Seriously… wtf?!?! Hollow needles should be used)
    4) Gold/Silver Earring (Stupid stupid stupid, there are materials that are far more suited to pierce with)
    5) Anti-bacterial cream (creams are a no-no)
    6) Ice (You don’t want to numb anything when piercing)

  9. You guys are fucking morons. First rubbing Alcohol does not actually sterilize anything so good job on recommending people use something that will not kill most bacteria. Secondly home piercings makes you a fucking moron. I hope all of you get an infection and learn your gosh damn lesson. Lastly just because YOU got lucky and didn’t fuck yourself up by doing this doesn’t mean you should recommend ways for other people to put themselves in serious danger.

  10. Seriously…self piercing isn’t that difficult, and as long as you do it with the right equipment, you’ll be fine. I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone, but people like me that have had a few piercings done already, self-piercings are no biggie (I have my nose, two pairs of microdermals, belly, industrial, and conch.) I self-pierce with hollow needles frequently out of boredom. Honestly, your best bet is to talk to a local piercer about how best to do it and watch a couple youtube videos. Not all of us can afford the $100 it costs to get a pair of microdermals, etc, I get it. Piercings are expensive, just be smart.
