WHAT TO COMPARE THE PAIN OF A TATTOO TO

Some compare the pain to scratching the skin with a needle, others to a wasp or bee sting. Many tattoo wearers agree that they feel the pain most strongly when the master is working out the contour, and when it comes to shading, the effect on the skin becomes more ‘diffuse’. It can be compared to several bites at the same time, but with much less intensity. If the drawing is applied close to the bone, itching occurs.

At the end of a tattoo session you will feel a burning sensation: this is inevitable for every client. The reason for this is the many micro-injuries to the upper layer of skin.

! Each of us perceives external influences in our own way due to the characteristics of the body. The main and decisive factors: the location of the nerve endings, the amount of fat, the degree of thickening of the skin and its resistance to temperature changes. All these determine whether pain will be felt during a session.

DIFFERENCES IN PAIN THRESHOLD BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN

In women, areas of fat deposition cover the entire back, a large area of the hips, lower legs, making tattoo work in these areas almost painless (this is especially true at the age of 25, in young girls the skin has a thinner structure). However, there are a number of cases in which the sensitivity of the female body increases: during menstruation and the week before. During this period, we recommend postponing the visit to the tattoo parlour.

In men, the pain-free area is the forearm, and there is less discomfort during a tattoo session on the lower leg. It is worth noting that the strong half has more pain zones. This is due to the fact that the fat layer is mainly concentrated on the back of the hand and also on the outer thigh.

HOW TO REDUCE PAIN DURING THE PROCESS?

If impending pain before the session is the only thing holding you back, special anaesthetics can be used. They last about 3-4 hours, which is enough to comfortably apply a fairly extensive pattern. Such tools make it much easier to work on sensitive skin areas, increasing the pain threshold and reducing swelling and bleeding during the work. The analgesic effect lasts for several hours.

! The main factor influencing the experience of pain is fear. It is very important to set yourself up in a positive way, not to worry about the unpleasant thoughts that arise. Treat the upcoming session as a moment that will only bring pleasant emotions, because the appearance of the tattoo is just one of them. As practice shows, a very small percentage of people limit themselves to one tattoo, so the pursuit of happiness is a contagious process.

WHAT TO DO AND WHAT NOT TO DO BEFORE THE SESSION

  1. Do not drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes before the session. This disrupts the normal response of nerve endings.
  2. Those with a low sensitivity threshold should first of all consult a master, as the use of blood-clotting drugs is prohibited in this case.
  3. Painkillers cause increased bleeding, which in turn pushes the pigment out from under the skin. It is important to understand that any medication that affects your skin will also affect your tattoo.
  4. Women should refuse to go to a session during menstruation as sensitivity increases.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE MOST PAINFUL PLACE TO GET A TATTOO?

There are several such areas: shoulders and forearms, lumbar region, buttocks and legs. Tattoos in these areas are quietly tolerated.

Tattooed on the face, neck, ribs, underarms and in sensitive areas – the intimate area and nipples – severe pain is felt.

HOW TO ALLEVIATE THE PAIN OF A TATTOO?

It is best not to choose sensitive areas for tattooing. But if you are not at all ready to endure, you can use an anaesthetic.

WHAT CAN YOU COMPARE THE PAIN OF GETTING A TATTOO TO?

Everything is individual. For some, the pain of a tattoo resembles a bee sting, for others it resembles a cut, an abrasion or even a burn.

CAN I TAKE PAINKILLERS BEFORE GETTING A TATTOO?

No. Painkillers have a vasodilating effect on the blood vessels, causing profuse bleeding during the tattooing session. This can lead to ‘rejection’ of the ink, complicating the master’s work. As a result, the tattoo will heal worse, hurt more and the result will be blurred.

WHAT HURTS MORE - CONTOURING OR PAINTING?

It is more painful to apply the outline, because to draw it the tattoo machine is adapted to the strong impact of the needle. Does shading a tattoo hurt? When working with shading and shadowing, it goes down more gently on the skin, which makes the sensation less painful.
