What hurts more a tattoo or piercing?

Report as

They are two totally different types of pain, a piercing is a sudden sharp pinch that's over in a second. A tattoo is like a million or more sharp quick in and out, over and over stabs/pricks with a needle (like a shot that doesn't go all the way in.) The tattoos hurt longer because they take a lot longer. Neither is that bad in my opinion. I have 4 piercings in both ears, 1 in my nose, my belly button done twice and I've had my tongue pierced 3 times now, and I have 2 tattoos. It's not all that bad if you have a decent pain tolerance.

Sorry, just trying to be as descriptive as possible... Honestly I think getting my tongue pierced actually hurt worse than any of what I have! That's why I have had it done 3 times. The first time my tongue swelled up to where I couldn't barely speak. So I took it out. The second time it was interfering with my job because it made me sound drunk or slurring, so I took it out again. The 3rd time was a charm because my job wasn't solely based off me communicating verbally all day. So I didn't take that one out before it healed. Kinda ironic because it was the worst but I just had to have it.;)

I would say tattoo. I've only gotten my ears pierced and they didn't hurt but I'm sure tattoos hurt a lot. They look painful and I wouldn't recommend it.

Tattoo. I have a tattoo & have gotten my ears pierced & belly button so by far tattoo is more painful.

Most likely a tattoo but it all depends on where you get it! For piercings at te top of the ear of the tounge would hurt! For a tattoo the sides of your stomach Is fragile and hurts more

Two different initial pains! Two different healing pains!!! The piercing is a short intense pain, and the tattoo is constant and gets more intense as is goes on!!!!!

I would say a tattoo because a peircing only hurts for a couple seconds, but a tatto takes a while

I think a tattoo would hurt more because a piercing doesn't hurt at all.

They are different kinds of pain. When I got my nose done, it was just sharp and quick and over. When I got my tattoo done (half sleeve), it didn't hurt as bad, it just took longer.... it felt like a cat scratch kinda.

I have had my medusa, Monroe, septum, vertical labret, tongue, ears and belly button pierced. But I have 9 tattoos on ribs finger ear cartilage arms collar bone and thigh. I speak from experience piercings are more sore. Tattoos is just like warm scratching.
