How many times have you heard “this will only hurt a little?” If you had a dime for every time, you’d be independently wealthy, right? Well, I’m here with good news: when it comes to tattoos, that saying is actually true! Most needles don’t hurt as much as you think they will, and getting a tat is far different from getting, say, the flu shot.
Overcoming Tattoo Anxiety
You’re probably thinking: “easy for this guy to say, he’s done it before!” Well, let me assure you that even the newest of tattoo newcomers needn’t worry about the pain. I’d even use the word “pain” lightly, as it feels more like a very strong vibration with a little bit of pinch.
Some artists, like myself, use products like ice or rubbing alcohol to numb the sensation even more. So long story short, you have nothing to worry about! If this post didn’t totally convince you, you can always contact me for more information and/or reassurance! Until next time, friends, stay tatted!
