We all want to have some kind of “zest”, stand out from the crowd, be different from the rest. Someone achieves this with the help of clothes, others experiment with make-up, make unusual hairstyles or decorate with original accessories. There is another way to attract attention – to get a tattoo. Tattoos are really trendy these days. They are made by both men and women, and Hollywood stars and ordinary students. However, many people who dream of getting a tattoo are worried that they will be terribly hurt, they will bleed and pass out. Of course, all this is an exaggeration, but, nevertheless, people have a fear of a buzzing machine with a sharp needle.
How painful does it really hurt to get a tattoo?
There is no definite answer to this question. It all depends on the individual characteristics of a particular person and many other factors:
Firstly, each of us has a different threshold of pain sensitivity, so for some, getting a tattoo seems like torture, while others can even fall asleep from the pleasant sensations.
Secondly, many people simply “wind up” themselves and, having come to the salon, are nervous to such an extent that even a regular handshake may seem painful to them.
Thirdly, the size of the tattoo and the place (neck, wrist, arm, leg) where it is made is of great importance. The larger the tattoo, the longer it will be done and, accordingly, the longer it will take to endure, which bothers and begins to cause discomfort. It is most painful to get a tattoo on areas with thin and delicate skin – on the elbows, buttocks, wrists, ribs and chest. In other places where the skin is rougher, for example, on the back, arms, lower back, pain is not felt.
In addition to the individual characteristics of a person, the degree of pain of the procedure can be affected by the level of professionalism of the tattoo artist and the technique of applying the tattoo chosen by him. The use of one or another type of equipment and its quality can also affect the degree of pain in the procedure.
Given all of the above, we can say that each person will not be able to understand how painful or not painful it is to get a tattoo until they experience it all for themselves. And in order to reduce all fears to nothing, you need to find a good salon with modern equipment with a good master, and be positively minded, anticipating a wonderful result.
