Piercings: There is always a risk of infection with any piercing. In addition, naval piercing jewelry may get snagged on your clothing and can become painful if there is tension.

No answer: I have not any part of my body pierced so I cannot answer the question. I am sure there will be some pain associated with the procedure.
