What is the least painful place to get a tattoo?

I want to get a tattoo but am really scared. I know they will all hurt but what would be the least painful place?

Welllll.....

I have 2. If I had to do it all over I wouldn't do it, but being the big baby I am, wanted the first one somewhere it wouldn't hurt as much. Which ended up my bum/hip area. It hurt like all get out!!!!! I cried like a baby!

I also have one on my toe, which everyone told me would hurt like h3ll, but it actually was the least painful of the 2!

Re: What is the least painful place to get a tattoo?

the tattoo on my wrist didnt hurt at all, it hurt much less than getting my eyebrows waxed. in all honesty, it didnt even really hurt - it was more just a stinging feeling.

everyone is different, ive heard people say that the wrist made them cry and ive had people agree with me that the wrist isnt bad. everyone has different nerve sensitivities in different parts of their body. my husband has a tattoo that is partially on his wrist, and he was sweating when they were over his wrist.

also depends on your pain tolerance. i have a very high pain tolerance, but i psyche myself out about things beforehand. MY advice is to just get the tattoo wherever you really want it, not just based on where other people say hurts least. Its not going to feel pleasant at all no matter where you get it, so you might as well get it where you absolutely want it and think it will look best good luck!

Anywhere on a bone and thin skin is going to be more painful than other places. I have 3. One at my bikini line area that didnt hurt much at all, one on my lower back which I also didnt find painful but I also have an anklet and that was quite painful especially on the inside and outsides of the ankle.

Thanks! I don'thave a high pain tolerance so I will probably cry like a baby! I have wanted to get something for my boys for awhile now but can't get up the nerve to do it!

I agree with the mama who says it varies for each person. Theone on my shoulderblade hurt, well more like stung, felt hot and then got numb. It was fine until the artist started the coloring in..lol
the one on my hand didn't hurt at all. My ankle did hurt and I didn't finish it.

Re: What is the least painful place to get a tattoo?

I went with my friend a few weeks ago and she got one on her wrist. She said it didn't really hurt, but..... the one on my ankle hurt sooo bad. I had ahold of the arm of the chair trying not to hyperventilate or rip the arm off the chair the whole time. I really am not much of a wimp. I gave birth naturally at 16 years old, but that tatoo hurt. All that said, I still want another one some day on my upper calf
