Do tattoos really hurt?
Tattoos are a fashion trend that is a rage with youth and teenagers alike. People do it for different purposes. However, those who get it done for the first time are quite apprehensive about the whole procedure. They are afraid, it may cause pain. They are in a dilemma that they may have to experience pain during the procedure. But what is the truth?
Do tattoos really hurt? The answer is yes. Since the procedure involves needles being repeatedly stuck into the skin, it does pain. But not all tattoos pain excessively. The reason is simple. Tattoos will hurt if longer lines are designed. Shorter lines do not cause much pain. It all depends on the design and the extent of the coverage on the body. One can expect slight pain while undergoing the process. During the process, the part of the body where tattoo is being done may go numb for some time. This becomes normal after some time.
Various parts of the body such as the spine, feet, neck, wrists etc., will cause varying amount of pain. Wherever the deposit of fat on the body is less, pain will be more. Moreover, the time consumed to the tattoo also decides the severity of pain.
