One of the first things that comes to someones mind when thinking about getting a tattoo is the pain involved with it. Unfortunately, getting a tattoo is painful, however, some places are more painful than others. Also the amount of pain that one experiences also has to do with their level of pain tolerance. Everyone on the earth has a different pain tolerance, so one person may only experience a little bit of pain and discomfort, while someone else may experience a lot of pain and discomfort. So if you can’t handle pain too well than getting a tattoo is probably not the best thing for you.
However, there are more painful places on your body to receive a tattoo. If you are hell bent and determined to get a tattoo but are concerned about the pain than you should stay away from boney areas like, like your skull, spine, ribs elbow, sternum, etc. These areas are not only more painful but you will not only have to deal with the pain, but you will have to deal with these areas vibrating, which causes another unpleasant feeling. Also other areas that tend to be painful are the fleshy areas on ones body like the like the stomach, crotch area, inner thighs, under arm, and armpit. These places seem to cause a much more sharp pain and a pinching feeling.
If you can’t handle the pain and really want a tattoo than you should stick with areas that have more muscle mass to them like your arms or the back or your calve. Also keep in mind the state of mind you are in when you get your tattoo also can help contribute to how much pain you will be in. It is important to be clear headed, well rested and not emotional unstable.
