Tattoo and pain: everything you need to know

Tattoo and pain: everything you need to know

Not all the same when it comes to pain

Many tattoo artists will tell you that a tattoo has to be earned and that you pay for it twice. What? Yes, getting a tattoo is not free , and going under the needles is painful.

El pain It is undoubtedly one of the most subjective notions, that is to say that from one person to another, we are not all the same when it comes to the dermographer that tints your skin. We have a very different tolerance for pain, therefore, and like any change in the body, our mental state and our physical form play an important role.

What are the most painful areas?

While the pain experienced during a tattoo is perceived differently in different people, certain parts of the body are known to be particularly painful. In general, these are the places with the thinnest skin:

  • Inner forearms
  • Inner biceps
  • Ribs
  • Inner thighs
  • Inner fingers
  • The feet

The genitalia, the eyelids, the armpits, along the spine and the upper part of the skull are tattooed less frequently, but they are just as painful.

On the contrary, there are areas where the pain is much more bearable. For example, we can talk about the parts of the body protected by larger skin, flesh and muscles: shoulders, forearms, back, calves, thighs, buttocks and stomach.

Depending on the part of the arm If you want to get a tattoo, the pain will be more or less intense. Remember that the forearms do not hurt and, on the contrary, the inside of the biceps really itches!

The right attitudes to adopt

Going to a tattoo session is like preparing for a big sporting event - you don't improvise. There are some very simple rules to follow, and some will help you better understand and cope with pain.

First of all you have to be relaxed! Several hundred million people have tattoos and never said that going through the needles was the most painful experience of their lives.

Avoiding tension is the first way to better tolerate pain. Rest the old lady from your tattoo session, and above all, do not drink alcohol (not the day before, not the same day for that matter)!

Remember to eat well beforehand because the first few minutes can be intense, and there is no need to refuel.

Ban sedatives and all drugs in general, just like cannabis use - a firecracker and a tattoo session don't mix.

Lastly, there are anesthetic creams and sprays, but we do not recommend them because they change the texture of the skin, which can also change the appearance of the tattoo after the session, while the work is being done. more difficult for the tattoo artist.

There you have it, if we can't guarantee that your tattoo will be painless, Tattoos & Fashion is still hoping to have cleared up some of your fears about going under the needles.
