Get it done professionally if you can! My parents didn't want me to have it done, so I did it myself. (I don't condone that) get it don't with a hollow needle. No guns! It may shatter your cartilage & makes it take a long time to heal. Clean it out a lot, 2-6 times a day with a sea slat & warm water solution. Don't touch it, it will cause infection. Don't pick off discharge, clean it off.
I got mine Pierced at Claire's with a gun. I got it about 8 months ago and it has turned out fine. Just make sure you clean it well. And honestly, in my opinion and it does not hurt at all, just a slight pinch. Also, your hair gets stuck in it easily so sometimes it pulls it so be careful.
