I'm getting my first tattoo next month and I'm kinda freaking out because I don't know how bad its going to hurt. its going to be a paw print (my cats) on my left wrist. I've heard its going to hurt a lot but I also can stand a pretty good amount of pain most of the time. this tattoo is really special to me and I'm going to get it no matter what lol I just want to know how your first tattoo went
oh and this is sorta like a trial run to see how bad it hurts because I want an even bigger tattoo on my ribs of a tiger (go on my account and look at my pics). if you look at it I would really like your opinion :) its a side by side of the tiger photo I got online and my drawing
They don't hurt really... it feels like being scratched with a toothpick. Just make sure you get something that you've had your mind on for a while. For example, all the tattoos I have are tattoos that I wanted for over a year before I got them. Besides that, just make sure you take good care of it :)
First keep in mind that the tattoo you're getting is considered a non casual tattoo as it can't be covered up by a t shirt. That could be a problem for some jobs. They don't hurt I'm my opinion and I'm fairly sensitive.
My twin has several tattoos, her first was also on her inner wrist. They gave her a lollypop to chew lol just cos she was nervous it would hurt. According to her it was like a rough scratch and nothing more so I'm sure you'll be ok! And for the record, tattoos (as long as they're not tacky and have been well thought out) can look great, and I always instantly want to go up to people and ask about them.
