The pain felt when filling in the outline of a tattoo is comparable to that of a wasp or bee sting, yet there is no burning sensation afterwards.

1- How does the pain of a tattoo compare?

Pain is one of the body's mechanisms that helps us survive. He points out that we have to cure something, repair, seek help from a doctor.

By the way, there is a rare disease in which a person does not feel pain. It would seem that this should be great, especially for lovers of tattoos and piercings, but such people do not feel fractures, symptoms of serious diseases and dangerous wounds. In general, nothing good.

The neurons in our nervous system, which are connected by a large network throughout the body, help us feel pain.It is the neurons that respond to external interference and internal problems and transmit a signal to the brain. Right now we feel pain. And the more dangerous the situation, the more acute it is.

Given the relationship between pain and the nervous system, it is logical to draw a simple conclusion: the most painful place for a tattoo is where there are the most nerve endings.

A tattoo is an extensive and superficial lesion on the surface of the skin, so it feels more like a similar type of injury: abrasions and burns. In general, is it painful to get a tattoo? If you had “asphalt sickness” in childhood, then the sensations after a knee tattoo session will return you to the past and envelop you in a pleasant (not) nostalgia for abrasions on the knees, which have healed for a long time. . time and painfully.

By the way, speaking of pain in different places: we have compiled a classification of places where it hurts to hit a tattoo, it will help you better prepare for the session. It is important to note that each organism is unique and the pain threshold may differ, so the data is very average. Mark the "sharpest" sore spots on the tattoo and take notes before the session.

3- Differences in pain threshold in women and men.

We live in an age of equality, but Mother Nature had completely different plans and made men and women physiologically different, therefore the tattoo pain pattern is different for them. In fact, official science cannot agree on the difference in pain thresholds in men and women, but most scientists are inclined to believe that the women's tattoo pain map has fewer "red zones" , since women still tolerate pain more easily. because her body is better prepared for it (by nature, women are destined for a more painful role in reproduction than gentlemen).

Tattoo artists note that girls tolerate tattoo sessions better. If we made the list in the previous section separately for men and women, women would have more places in the green zone. For example, the entire back and buttocks. So, we can say that the tattoo pain map for men would be more "red" than for women.

In any case, as we said above, the tattoo pain map is very individual, and you can easily meet both men and women who undergo tattoo sessions, either as a light tickle or a moderate operation.

4- How to reduce pain during a session

Before looking for a anesthetic appropriate for external use (only they can be used! No injections), do psychological preparation for the session (it doesn't matter if you are the master or the client: the master can also prepare the client for the session and calm him down): after all , they tell the truth, the devil is not so scary, as he is painted, that's why the devil, who sits on his shoulder and whispers about the hellish and unbearable pain, we command your brothers . Remember how many people with tattoos walk our planet. Most of them will say that getting tattoos is painful, but bearable and worth it at 100%. In general, less stress! Calm and good humor will be of great help during the session.

Be sure to take care of not only your moral, but also your physical: sleep well, eat well, and in no case come to a session sick. A healthy, vigorous and strong body will better withstand pain!

Carefully study the pain zones of the tattoo and remember the most unpleasant points. And finally, what should be used at the end and we would recommend this method to treat pain only for people with a very low pain threshold or for the most delicate and painful places: pain relief. They can be used where the tattoo is most painful to hit, but there are several nuances.

First of all, they interfere with work, since they “freeze” the skin, which contributes to the loss of pigment (and correction is another part of the pain), and also anesthetics distort colors. By the way, an interesting fact: pain relievers “relieve” the pain points of the tattoo only during the session, which means that when it “releases”, you will feel everything at once and even more intense and sharp, but the pain will . they last much less time than the session…

5- What to do and what not to do before the session

In general, we have already touched on this topic in the previous part of our article. It is categorically impossible to exhaust your body morally and physically. You can not drink alcohol, as it increases bleeding and interferes with the work of the master. It is strictly forbidden to take painkillers and give painkiller injections.

Before the session, you can do what you cannot do after it - visit the solarium and exercise in moderation. But you need to relax, tune in well, sleep well and eat tasty and hearty!

Don't forget there is a tattoo pain map, read it again to arrive at your session fully armed. Good luck and don't worry! And as they say, through pain a tattoo wins a soul.
