The Pain Issue!
Being snapped by a rubber band, a slight tickling, a bee sting, a sunburn, being pinched, pins n needles like when your foots asleep, numb, pinpricks, tingling, like a drill going into your skin, uncomfortable -- all of these phrases have been used to describe what it feels like to get a tattoo.
Your personal tolerance for pain, the size and type of your tattoo and the skill of the artist help determine the amount of pain involved. If you have difficulty with an injection at the doctors office or if the sight of blood makes you queasy, you might want to think twice before visiting the tattoo parlor. (Try one of the massively popular temporary tattoos or henna tattoos, also temporary, that Madonna and other stars have made popular. They offer the "coolness" of a tattoo without the pain, risk and expense.)
Pain also depends on the location of your tattoo. The lower back and ankle are popular places for tattoos, but its much less painful to get one on your chest or upper arm.
Getting a tattoo on your arm or chest is less painful than on an area like the ankle because skin right above your bones tends to be more sensitive to needles, while theres extra body mass in the upper arm or chest to cushion the bones.
Preparing to be Tattooed:
Many people about to get tattooed are concerned with the pain associated with the process. At a minimal, there is a sort of discomfort involved. How far up on the pain meter the experience rates depends largely on the individual getting the tattoo and their tolerance to pain. Other factors include the size of the tattoo, the length of time the process takes, the placement choice on the body, and the skill level of the tattoo artist doing the tattooing.
One common mistake is drinking before the tattoo. A good shop will not tattoo a person under the influence of any substance, but alcohol is a particular cause for concern, one, because we all know the stupid choices that drunks tend to make, and two, because alcohol thins your blood, you may bleed more during the process, and ink is often bled out as well, leaving you with a faded or spotty tattoo, not something any artist is looking to add to their portfolio!
