Does It Hurt Getting A Tattoo?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

One of the first things that comes to mind when someone wants their first tattoo is "Does it hurt getting a tattoo?" Well there may not be a simple answer to this question. With all tattoos there is some level of pain involved. But there real question should be how much pain is involved and how much pain can you handle. It is said that women can handle the pain better than men and I don't really know if I agree with that. I have been tattooed 10 times and I can say that I took the pain really well.

Once the artist starts the tattooing is probably the height of the pain. As the tattooing goes for some time your endorphins start to kick in and the pain starts to cease. Don't get me wrong, you will still feel it but the pain will not be as intense as that first feel of the tattoo gun. I know this to be true through personal experience. The pain will get better. I promise. Another thing to think about is to never get a tattoo on an empty stomach. I know that if it is you first tattoo that you might be to scared to eat but if you get a tattoo on an empty stomach you will more than likely get sick in the middle of your tattoo. If you start to get sick you won't be worried about does it hurt getting a tattoo.

Another big thing to consider with the pain of getting a tattoo is the tattoo design. Think about this for a minute, if this is your first tattoo and you get a design that is huge or has a lot of detail in it you will be under the needle for a while. Try to stay away from this on your first tattoo. Once you find your pain tolerance and know how much you can handle you can go for something bigger next time.

Tattoo placement also plays a big part in the question of "Does it hurt getting a tattoo?". There are places on your body that will hurt more than others. Areas on your body where there is little "meat" or close a bone will be more prone to being painful. Try to stay away from areas like this until you know who well you can handle it. There would be nothing worse than starting your tattoo and not being able to finish it because it is to painful.

So, does it hurt getting a tattoo? Yes. But if you keep these tips in mind you won't have to be so scared to find out for yourself. One person can say that it is the worst experience they have ever went through while others like me will say that it is one of the best things they have done. So if you want to know how bad does it hurt getting a tattoo only you will be able to answer that question.
