I really, really, really wanna get a tattoo on my arm, like bicep area. I know it's a pretty okay place to get tattooed, but I have a terrible pain tolerance! Is it a good idea to go through with it? This will be my first tattoo.
If the tattoo is done over bone it will hurt like hell, try to go over a fleshy area. Generally it doesn't hurt unless you're freaked out about it. If you go into it thinking it'll hurt, it'll hurt. You probably shouldn't get it if your pain tolerance is low, you'll scream the whole time and you'll have to put up with it or end up with half a tattoo. Or get something small and simple as a test so even if you fight and scream during the tattooing it won't last long.
Please don't. As soon as I see a girl with a tatoo I have a low opinion of them. I have yet to see ANY tatoo that makes them more attractive than a pure naked body. Its like grafitti - I see it and just want to wash it off. Get a temporary tattoo instead. In 5 years you'll be glad you did.
it's not that bad, just imagine a vibrating knife getting dragged across your skin, but not as painful. but it feels different depending on the part of your skin, like I have a tattoo on my arm that hurt like hell on the top of it, close to my shoulder, but other parts just felt annoying. not painful, just annoying
No tattoo would be the best idea. If not, then hopefully your first will also be your last.
If you have a low pain tolerance probably not the best idea. Me and my Girlfriend got tattoos of each others initials, for me it only hurt a little like being grazed, but my Girlfriend did it in two goes because it was 'the most painful thing' she's ever done.
