When thinking of getting a tattoo, pain is one of the aspects that most often worry people. Even more if it’s the first time they get tattooed. But, why does it hurt more to get tattooed in certain parts of the body? And what is the least painful place to get a tattoo? In today’s post we analyse these reasons.
Tattoo pain is a subjective matter
The first thing we must take into account is that pain is very personal. Two people can be tattooed in the same area and have completely different experiences, because each of them has a different sensitivity and tolerance towards pain.
Tattoo pain near the bone
The proximity to the bone is one of the main reasons why one tattoo hurts more than another. Head, elbow and knees are three very clear examples. When the bones are very close to the surface skin, that means there is not enough muscle to absorb the pain of the needle. Specially in the head, pain is accentuated due to the sound. Many of the people who decide to get tattooed in this area explain that the sound itself hurts more than the needle.
Pain tattoo and nervousness
Another aspect to consider is nerves and stress. The brain reacts more to painful stimuli in someone who is nervous, so a relaxed person has better tolerance for the tattoo pain. If you are calm, the brain will totally or partially ignore the pain notices sent by the area that is being tattooed. In Logia we count on expert tattoo artists who will reassure you and help you throughout the process.
So, What is the least painful place to get a tattoo?
With all of this in mind, the least painful areas to get a tattoo are the shoulders, outer arm, buttocks and thighs. Anyways, we do not mean that the pain is non-existent. Getting Tattooed involves a part of pain, but if you really want to get a tattoo you may be interested in knowing in which areas the discomfort is less intense.
