We have probably heard about how painful tattoo procedure is. We’ve heard a lot of different versions but really, how painful is painful? It is hard to describe or to gauge pain because it is a subjective matter. It is something personal. Pain for me might be different from you. Pain threshold varies from individual. You can only have one way to determine it and it is through a pain scale. Next time you ask someone about how painful a procedure is, ask them to rate it from 1-10 with 10 being the most painful. In that way you’ll have the idea as to how painful is actually is. People say a lot of things a lot about tattoo sessions but here are some of the questions that you might want to know about how painful is painful.
Is it too painful enough to have me pass out?
Tattoo pain is over rated to be honest. You can ask a lot of people who have gone through their tattoo procedure and they tell you, passing out is not because of the pain rather the anxiety. Mostly people who undergo tattoo procedure for the first time are anxious because of the fear of the unknown. You don’t know what to expect and you don’t know if you’ll be able to go through with it but chill out brah, it is not that painful. It is not the type that will make you pass out. Pain tolerance varies from individual so it would always depend on your own perception on pain but so far, based from interviews on average people, tattoo session is not that bad.
What kind of pain do people feel during the session?
Mostly they describe the pain of the tattoo procedure as a tingling sensation. It gives this feeling like a sting of a bee repeatedly done but as session goes the pain grows on you. it is said to be a kind of pain that bearable. Nothing much to worry about the pain because just said on the statement above, pain in tattoo procedure is over rated. It is less painful than you expect it to be. If you are determined to have it and you really want to ink up then pain would be your least priority and aside from that, you’ll feel satisfied after the procedure. It is not only beautiful to look at but it is an extra bragging right.
I’m scared of needle/blood. Will that matter?
Well actually yes. If you are scared of blood or needle then definitely that would be a problem but it would still depend on your capability. If you are strong enough to face your fear then that would be a plus point. It could be a problem for your tattoo artist as well because he will be hesitant to perform the tattoo procedure knowing that you are scared of the basic instrument involved in the procedure but like I said, if you are really determined to have the procedure done then nothing would actually be a hindrance.
To avoid or lessen the pain, there are products available in the market that can be used to numb the area for a tattoo procedure. We have this certain thing called numbing cream readily available in the market. This products help people get through their painful skin procedures. This could also help you if you are the type of person who is really sensitive to pain.
