Absolutely, but it allows you to realise its not as bad as your mind made it out to be. Take waxing for example. It's not so bad once it's done but your mind blows it right out of proportion :p
For me it is,but i'm doing alright.
depends on how afraid you are, and how bad you want over it.
I have wanted tattoos all my life
i have been terrified of needles sticking into my skin all my life
so i started donating blood a few times per year, until I wasn't terrified of needles
If you can take those harpoons you can get stuck with any needle.
