I'm getting my first next week on the back of my neck/upper back, how bad does it hurt there?

It kind of depends where you get it.
I got one on my ankle 4 years ago and it sort of felt like a scraping, only really hurt when it got close to my ankle bone and that felt like someone poking my bone. Afterward, it just sort of felt like a sun burn, swelled a little, but not too bad.
Just this past summer I got one at the base of my neck and it wasn't too bad at all compared to the ankle- just kind of felt like a bee sting, still hurt but less than the ankle The worst part was having to sit with my chin against my chest for half an hour. Again, afterward, just like a sun burn.
The important thing is to let the artist know if you need a break- if it's getting too intense, ask them to stop and they'll give you a break, no big deal.0
