Getting tattoos can be more painful for some than for others. Many variables can influence this painful experience. Some people claim that tattoos do not hurt at all while others say that this is the worst pain they have ever felt. Each tattoo will cause a different feel. There are however some tricks from the Tattoo artists in Bali to minimize this pain and discomfort.
The place where you will place your tattoo will play the most important role on the pain you will feel during the process. Places with little muscle and fat will be more painful. Many people say that wrists, ankles, elbows, and other bony parts are the worst when getting tattoos. On the other hand, places where you have muscle like arms and thighs are generally the least painful and some people even find the experience enjoyable.
Preparing to suffer even before the tattooist starts is the best solution to maximize pain. To reduce the perception of pain, I advise you to stay calm and not think about what will happen. Try to talk to your tattoo artist, listen to music, or look around and read what is posted on the walls. Do not forget to breathe, try not to panic, and the experience will be carried out smoothly with less anxiety and discomfort. The first minute is usually the worst. It takes your skin to get used to the feeling of being drilled many times by a tiny needle.
How to Deal with Tattoo Pain
Usually your tattoo will not cause you any pain after being done, but it can sometimes be irritating, unpleasant, or burning a little. Do not touch or scratch it, it only increases your discomfort. Keep your tattoo clean and apply moisturizing creams. This should reduce the itching and burning sensations and prevent your skin from becoming infected.
Some people choose to use an anesthetic cream when performing a tattoo. While this may be somewhat effective, the cream should be applied about 30 minutes before. This will anesthetize the place for about 30 minutes once the tattoo begins. The cream then dissipates, the process may seem even more painful given that this may shock your previously numbed skin. This cream is only useful for a small tattoo that can be achieved in less than 30 minutes. For the most part, tattoos are not unbearably painful and, for some, the mild pain that is felt is part of the experience.
