The bottom line
Nipple piercings hurt, but the real pain only lasts a second and any pain beyond that is totally doable. If the piercing hurts more than you think it should, talk to your piercer. If you notice any signs of infection, make an appointment with a doctor right away.
Furthermore, do piercings heal faster the second time?

Just so, can I re pierce my nipple myself?
The hole may get smaller or close up after a few weeks. But you’ll probably be able to put your nipple ring in again after you’re done breastfeeding. If your piercing closes up for any reason, go to a professional studio to have it redone. Don’t try to re–pierce it yourself.
Does it hurt worse the second time getting your nipples pierced?
For some, the second time around is more painful, and the healing of piercing takes longer. For others, the piercing is not as painful because they know what to expect, and with great care, the healing time is just about the same as when they got the first piercing.
The genitals are by far the most sensitive ears of our bodies, so no one needs to convince you that it’ll be the most painful piercing you can ever get.
The answer is complicated. You need to have your professional piercer examine the place where you want to be repierced. Sometimes the hole may not be completely healed in the inside- if the outsides of the hole are just closed it may be easy for your piercer to repierce you in the same place with little complication.
