I am afraid to get a tattoo, does it hurt? How long does it take? I just want a small one.

what do you want a tattoo of? where do you want it? the pain definitely depends on where you get it done.

i had a tattoo done on across my lower back, which is supposedly one of the most painful parts to get it done. i thought it was painful but tolerable. just think, sooo many people have one, if they hurt so bad, no one would get them. the one across my back took about an hour and a half. but the pain was worth it =) just go for it, you'll get addicted after the 1st tattoo.

Like the sign I saw in a tattoo shop said, "If tattoos didn't hurt, wimps would get them, too." I have 4 tattoos. Not all of them hurt. Tattoos generally only hurt when they doing it on a bony area. I about came out of my chair when the tattoo artist was doing my tattoo on my chest. When he hit the bony area of my rib cage, I had to grab the chair and grip it hard to withstand the pain. It was horrible, but I got through it. My honey has a tattoo around his neck that goes down to the middle of his chest. So I know he went through more pain than I did. My best tattoo with no pain is the cute red rose on my left butt cheek. All fleshy there so no pain. That's the way to go ;) Good luck! Small tattoo would take roughly an hour or so.

I have 7 and I can tell you it depends on where you get it. Every area will get numb after a while though. Like my most hurtful one was on my chest. You can see it in my picture. The one on my arms hurt the least.

It depends on your pain threshold. Neither of my tattoos hurt, though for some people they're very painful. It depends on the size/location of the tattoo, as well.

Yes, it does hurt. It wasn't unbearable pain, though, and I thought it was worth it. I have one on my lower back - it's about 5 inches by 4 inches. It is only black, no color, and it took about an hour. The pain is the worst at the beginning but then it doesn't seem so bad. If you aren't sure you can take it, ask them to start with the needle and no ink, just so you can see how it feels. Then you can decide and you won't have anything permanent if you change your mind.
