Does Getting a Tattoo Hurt?

The “Short” answer… yes, but the degree of pain depends on You, the nature of the Tattoo, and the Artist.

You go to get a tattoo and get cold feet at the last minute. Do you believe that getting inked is not worth the excruciating pain or the care that is needed for the tattooed part of the body afterward? Different people who have or have not been inked before have different opinions.

Generally people who are getting a tattoo for the first time feel a little scared due to their peers or parents telling them that getting a tattoo is painful business. On the other hand people who have been inked before have their own experience and whether or not does getting a tattoo hurt them depends on the threshold of their pain.

Generally sailors are people who do not feel any pain while getting a tattoo as they pride themselves in having their body inked… and half the time they are drunk when they get the tattoo.

Professional tattoo artists have described the feeling of getting a tattoo as scratching one’s body.

Have you ever been in an incident where either you or friend has fainted while getting a tattoo done? When a person faints while getting a tattoo done, it is usually because he or she has not eaten for some time. Due to this the blood sugar of the person drops. So when a person fears that he will be feeling immense pain while getting a tattoo done, he or she faints. Many cry when getting a tattoo for the first time. This usually happens because there threshold of pain is not too high and are usually taken by surprise at the amount of pain caused while getting inked. Also sometimes complex tattoo designs can take long sessions with the artist and these long periods are stressful for the body and tend to make a person feel more pain.

A common problem that arises while getting tattoo is the fear of seeing blood or a needle entering your body. When a tattoo needle enters your body, it only penetrates about 1/16 inch of your body. If seen on a ruler then the length is not very significant. To overcome this fear many people get tattoos inked on those parts of their body where they cannot see the artist at work. This helps in overcoming their fear of needles and also getting some ink on their bodies.

The needle enters and exits the body rapidly and the harm done to your skin is very minimal. Many artists are such experts that they do not allow even traces of blood to appear on the skin. While getting a tattoo the first minute or two are the only ones that are hard to pass. After that you become accustomed to the pain and it doesn’t hurt much thereafter.

Before getting a tattoo you should understand the whole scenario as to who is the best tattoo artist, what design you want to choose or let’s say that you could even be allergic to getting a tattoo. The foremost thing needed to be done is getting educated about getting a tattoo before getting into the real act.
