its all about how big and where it is lol also everyone has different pain limits it does hurt but soooo worth it i can recommend bepanthen nappy rash cream for afrer it helps the tattoo heal really well small scabs so less risk of losing colour and a lot cheaper than the stuff they sell in the tattoo shop!! good luck sure you will love the result!!

as andy said all about placement/size pain threshold and healing ability these are my tattoos that i have 6 hours each (2 sessions each so 2 x 3 hour sessions), what they also tell you to do is drink lucozade (for the sugar content) and like andy said the best cream for promoting healing is bepanthen £5-6 quid from bodycare/boots

the whole stigma that a tattoo hurts, is only in ur own mind to me it was like a hot cat scratch.... the outline was nothing it was the shading that was getting to me a bit

Depends on size and where your getting it , Ive got .. a few .. about 16 now I think lol the pains bearable in some areas , but in others where I know it’s going to hurt more I use numbing cream first (I know I’m a wimp lol) just remember, have something to eat first, take juice with you , and maybe a sweet to suck on , I find that helps , and breath ,try and relax when your getting it done , I used to use bepanthen but it’s changed so I use savlon / bio oil coconut oil or just a moisturiser , anything that helps with the skin healing and not drying out

yes, Tiny has it right, the pain is very dependent on location, a shoulder is usually no big deal, but if its anywhere such as where you would hit bone, or a lot of nerve endings it can get uncomfortable depending on tolerance level. I have in the neighborhood of 16, some full length of my back for example were not bad, but at the ends of my wrist or on my chest across ribs were horrible...
