numb to pain

I was in the shower yesterday when i accidentally snagged my loofah on my belly ring. My piercing started to bleed. I unscrewed the balls which hold the ring in place and took it off to survey the damage. It looked scarred and all red with blood, but the strange thing was that it was painless. Usually we'd associate blood with pain. But is it possible to be numb to pain? Like maybe my wound has gone through so much trauma that it just gets numb and you don't feel a thing anymore. I wonder if it applies to only physical wounds or does it work for emotional ones too?
