To begin with, it is essential that you know that during the process of piercing, it will hurt. Many piercers have now started using local anesthesia which they spray during the start of the process. The anesthesia numbs the part of the body where the piercing has to be performed. This helps in a much safer and painless piercing process. You can also visit your local doctor and he/she can suggest specific protocols. However, it is necessary to note that you should not be allergic to anesthesia, otherwise it can worsen your condition. Before visiting the piercer it is essential that you ask your doctor about it.

There are multiple piercing bars that carry out the process without anesthesia. You can always go for a piercing without numbing as it might cause you a little more pain but is worth it. Many people also have other numbing options. You could always opt for that. After you get done with your piercing, it is imperative that you take extra care of it. There is a high chance of infection and pus but the best way to avoid that is by clearing all the dirt and junk with a cotton swab or cotton bud every day before sleeping. Also, apply ointments that aid faster healing.
