    Never get pierced with a gun. There's always the chance of the gun malfunctioning and crushing your cartilage.
    A needle will remove the correct amount of tissue to insure better healing.
    As far as the hurting goes, I've never had any complaints.

    Needles hurt a little more than the guns do but that's because it takes a little bit longer for the needle to go all the way through, but in all honesty it just feels like a bee sting. It really doesn't hurt that bad and I don't take pain well so for me to say that it doesn't hurt is a good thing haha
