When you get a lip piercing do they deaden your lip first?

Some piercing studios use a type of local anaesthetic that is sprayed onto the skin inside your mouth that numbs the area first but a lot of places do not use it as it seems to cause the new piercing to swell more. The pain isn't terrible and is over within seconds so you don't have much to worry about.
