If y’all don’t think you can handle the pain well-ESPECIALLY IN A VERY PAINFUL SPOT- there’s numbing cream on Amazon that you can get really cheap, and an hour before your session, apply it to the area you’re getting tattooed and wrap in saran wrap. A couple minutes before you get the tattoo placed, take off the wrap and wipe off the cream. I recently got part of my hip and stomach tattooed, and my artist used it on me to help with the pain. I didn’t feel anything for the first hour and half! It’s a lot easier for you and the artist because you can sit still and relax. The stuff he used was called Anesten! And You don’t have to tell the artist that you put it on before the appointment because some are A-holes and will make fun of you. Getting tattooed does not feel good and they know it! It’s okay to not wanna feel the pain so intensely. Also, the Anesten cream in particular doesn’t mess up the stencil ink and isnt greasy. It also CAN be applied to open skin!

My least painful spot was the back of my arm an inch above my elbow. I barely noticed it.

Who haggles an artist? Like how rude 😂 they're CREATING for you and makes names what they think they're worth and you said NO in the rudest way by haggling. Don't get tatted by that person 🤣🤣🤣

Never haggle your tattoo prices, do the research ahead of time to get an idea of what it’ll cost, but always focus on quality of work. You may pay more but it’s for a better product from a respectable artist

one suggestion is to not be afraid to speak up, respectfully. This is your body, your skin, you're stuck with this. So be sure 100% about the design, placement, the tattoo artist, don't be afraid to offend them, so long as you're respectful. They want you to be happy with your tattoo!

One thing I learned to utilize after 4 tattoos: if you are a wimp (like myself), look into numbing creams! Always ask your tattoo artist first about what they think is best, and always patch test a product, but if you think it'll help, try it! My last tattoo was absolutely amazing because I used some. Now I feel as though I can get the art I want, without having to worry too much about pain.

I have a question for tattoo artists in the comments If I were to go to you to get a piece done and at the same time ask you to do a touch up or edit another artists's work (got it done in another country so I can't get that artist to touch it up) would you be able to do it?
Jacky Star

Some artists are open and others don't touch anyone else's work no matter what. So asking your artist would be the best bet.

Agh! I have been waiting for 2 months to get my first tattoo. Quarantine in Spain is tough, so still got to wait a lil' more :( Looking forward to getting it tbh. It is an unfilled thin draw of a plant in a broken pot with its roots and seeds: It makes reference to veganism and plant kingdom... (I am vegan hence the tattoo) :D

People ask me to describe the pain of tattos I just go... ever been scratched by a cat? That's basically it except once the needle of off it doesn't hurt anymore. At least for me.

Probably not comfortable. You'd be surprised how many people don't shower before an appointment and they decide to get lower body tats. Also take her culture into account. It's one thing to be an Asian with tattoos or an Asian tattoo artist it's a whole different scale tattooing genitals as that area is seen as sacred in some cultures and not taken lightly especially when you tattoo it😂

@Vodkath I have a rib tattoo also, its really not that painful just kind of annoying. Don't be put off
I'm not a creative person
@Vodkath My first tattoo was on my rib. I thought I was gonna be crunching in pain but I was actually falling asleep in the chair 🤣🤣 the only time it got uncomfortable was when some flowers the artist was doing was near my stomach. Those lines felt like they were stinging a bit.

My first tat was on my finger 10 days after I turned 18.. I knew it was one of the most painful places but I didn’t know what “tattoo pain” felt like and didn’t have anything to base it off of lol... it hurt but again comparatively I don’t know what a tattoo would feel like in a less sensitive place
