Does ear piercing twice hurt?

Okay, so my mom wants me to get my ears pierced. The thing is, I've already gotten them pierced once when I was 5, but then I got an ear infection, and the hole closed. Now I'm 13 and I need to get them pierced, but I'm still scared that it will hurt because I'll have to get it done on the same place. Im under the impression that it will hurt a lot and that I'll get an ear infection again. Will it hurt a lot? I need the truth! Please help? :/ x

Noooooo! I'm 13 my first hole closed up at 10 got it redone at 11 and at 12 I got my second hole! Doesn't hurt a bit! Didn't even flinch! I know it sounds scary but a few of my friends just pierced their ears they were really scared but finally did it and one of my friends got them pierced three times and they all closed the fourth one she was so scared then after she got it done she said it didn't hurt at all! DOESN'T HURT!

Ear piercings are not as painful as most people try to make them out to be. The fact that you had them pierced before doesn't make it more painful. Talk to the person doing the piercing about applying local anesthetic.

No I have seven holes in 1ear, and 4 in the other. I did 8 myself and didn't numb it with ice. It's a quick pinch, but the further you go into the cartilage, it may cause discomfort extended discomfort.

It doesn't hurt it's honestly a little pinch. You're just afraid because of what happened in the past. Its quick and easy!

The new pericing is slightly ahead or behind the closed one, and it doesnt hurt much. They numb you first, but you can still feel it. I actually had to have surgery to close mine because I ripped one, then after I got the stitches out I got it repeirced.

My sister said it didn't hurt at all and she doesn't know why people are so scared of it.

Pergoda did mine years ago, a piercing gun is used, it's over before you realize it. You'll need to keep it clean with alcohol and remember to turn your posts so that they don't adhere.
