Helix piercings are considered
one of the more painful ear piercing areas, because it goes through the cartilage that surrounds the ear. Still, most ear piercings are tolerable compared to other areas of the body,
like nipple piercings (ouch!). Of course, everyone’s pain tolerance level is different, and Jenner is likely not feeling the throb since she’s just re-opening her holes. As long as she keeps them
clean and reduces irritation, she’s likely to stay infection-free. Our teen selves knows from experience that an angry piercing is a
very painful one.
