    I want to pierce my ears (I’m a guy), so I have ordered a few 1.2mm piercing needles (sterilised ofc) and some 1mm thick bars of various lengths. The problem is I hate the thought of inflicting pain in myself, so I wondered if anybody here has any advice on how to overcome it without the use of numbing cream?! Apparently numbing cream can lead to wonky piercings?
    I have some piercing pliers to hold my tragus with and I was kinda hoping that squeezing it real hard would be enough to negate much of the pain of pushing the needle through?!
