Generally, it will depend on a few factors such as: Velocity of the paintball, How much clothing is worn, and what part of the body it is. When you get hit in the stomach with a paintball going the standard rate of speed 280-300 Feet Per Second, it feels like a firm pinch or a snap with a large rubber band, keep in mind this is wearing a T-Shirt. If you get hit in the arm, it feels like a semi-firm pinch.

Paintball hurts MUCH more than airsoft. The reason that Paintball hurts more than Airsoft is because the speed of the paintball is faster and the mass is also larger. Take an Airsoft BB and a paintball and look at the difference in size. Now, when you figure that Paintball markers have much greater speed than an Airsoft gun, you will find that Paintball will and should hurt more.
