It doesn't hurt in the lobe, as long as you get it done at a professional place. I've got 3 holes in each lobe, 3 holes in my left upper ear and 1 in my right. No more; tongue piercings look stupid in my opinion and nose rings are common. If everyone has one, what's the point? Also, the only ppl who have belly rings round here are the fat gutted heffers who should really cover up. Nothing against big girls, just that why do you want to make yourself look horrible, rather than wearing nice clothes that flatter you?
