No, it doesn’t hurt…that much. In fact tattoos were among the first permanent reminders for many cultures to commemorate a significant event in their lives and have been shown as being linked with things like faithfulness or loyalty.
This question is often a tough one for people in the tattoo community. Some find it difficult to estimate their own pain tolerance, while others have an idea of what level might be too much. The truth? You’ll just have to figure out wherever YOU ARE on YOUR PAIN TOLERANCE LADDER when deciding.
For those considering getting inked for life – do your research beforehand! Speak with a trained artist who can walk you thru different things and maybe even allow you to test a sample area to determine your sensitivity.
