Tattoo Advice and Tips : How Much Does Tattoo Pain Hurt?
Tattoo Pain From Outlining and Shading
Except in the case of simple or , getting inked generally entails two phases: outlining and shading. Each involves a different level of pain. Whether you're considering your first tattoo or adding to an existing design, you're likely wondering what hurts the most—tattoo outlining or shading—and how much pain you can (and will have to) tolerate. The answers might have a bearing on the type of design you settle on.
A Word About Tattoo Artists and Pain
If your tattoo artist goes too deeply, you'll likely feel more pain. This is not a sign of a good artist, and you should consider finding a new one to finish the work if the pain is unbearable. In the hands of an experienced, expert tattoo artist, you'll feel discomfort, but not excruciating pain.
Some tattoo artists have the reputation of having a "light touch." So long as the ink is placed deeply enough in the skin so that it stays, this is a good trait in a tattoo artist.
