Is pain an issue for you in getting a first tattoo or another tattoo? On a scale from 1 to 5 with 5 meaning it's the main reason you haven't. If it hurt less or not at all would you do it?

For me personally - I would give it a 1. However, you have to remember everyones pain tolerance is different. For me after the first 20 minutes - I kinda get used to the feeling of the needle..and I could just relax after that.

For me every tattoo pretty much feels the same - unless it is on a bone, I have one on my ankle and another on the nape of the neck...that feels a little different..you can literally feel the needle knocking on the bone.

Doesn't matter to me how much pain is involved - I would do it regardless.

I have 3 tattoos and if the first one would have hurt; I wouldn't have gotten the other 2.

I don't have any, our daughter got her first one, down on the outside of her ankle, she said it hurt so bad she almost didn't go through with it but then didn't want only part of a monarch butterfly! My bad, I laughed at her. She said there was no way now, that she's going to get one on her breast up by the nip – we told her she had to wait until she was 18 for that one, because she still developing of course at this age (14) and we told her that any pattern she gets there is going to be stretched out and weird looking by the time natures finished with her. She said not to worry, after having experienced this one, there's no way she's letting a tattoo needle near her tender bits!
