    Default The Pain Thread (last updated 4/4/07)

    Obviously, because everyone is different and has different pain thresholds and because each piercer's technique is slightly different, this is a difficult question to answer. However, what we can do is give an average rating out of 10 for pain for each piercing and catalogue them as such.

    0 is didnt feel it and 10 is unbearable pain. YES, There could be numerous factors involved but the larger the sample size, the less important those factors become.

    Therefore I propose we use this thread to post what piercings you have (or have had) and how painful you thought they were.
    https://www.bodyjewelleryshop.com/fo...ead.php?t=2934
    I will tally the scores and update the initial post with the piercing types, averages and such. Please include your gender as it is a fact that women have a higher pain threshold than men and so this will have an effect.
    I thought I'd include all of the new ratings since the original pain thread was last updated, as there have been so many, and it's been months since that one was edited. As before, the first number is the average pain rating, the number in brackets is the number of ratings for that particular piercing and the numbers afterwards are the individual scores. So here they are:

    I was just very bored

    Edit: Ok it's all finished now.

    I also thought I should mention that I combined the scores for piercings that have different names, like helix/pinna/auricle (pinna and auricle don't actually refer to specific piercings, but helix is what people usually mean when they say either.)

    I think it's called a broach - because it's in the same place as a broach usually is?
    Current: 2 x Side Lip, Tongue-Web, Vertical Labret, Auricle, Pinna,
    Want: Lower Back Surface,


    Retired:
    Snakebites, Smiley x 2 (to be redone), Navel (to be redone?)
