    Question Wrist tattooing

    Shop Now
    There seems to be a fair proportion of inked-up guys and gals around here, so I'm hoping someone is in the know...

    I'm getting a new tattoo tomorrow around my wrist, I have heard many a second-hand horror story about how much it hurts getting it done on the wrist, you know... "Oh, my friend's cousin's aunt had that and it kills!" Kinda thing.

    Anyone been there, done that and can enlighten me. Won't stop me of course, but will let me know whether I should drop a valium before I go

    I don't have one on my wrist, although I considered getting a dove on the inside of my left wrist. I have one on the top of my foot though. I was told how horrible it would be, but I didn't think it was too bad.

    Among others, I have a very large tattoo running from my wrist to my elbow (and hopefully eventually on up to the shoulder.) I also have a tattoo on the top of my foot.

    With both I was told "It's gonna hurt! Oh it's gonna hurt so bad." You know... not so much. The top of the foot was easy. With the wrist there were a couple of spots that gave me a twinge but it wasn't bad. I guess it really depends on how well you take pain.

    I only have one tattoo (on my hip) but I feel pretty confident in saying that getting a tattoo anywhere isn't going to compare to giving birth.

    I have some script on my wrist...DH has the same tattoo. He got his first and whined like a baby. Cringed and acted like it was the worst tattoo pain ever. I got mine and didn't really feel a thing. It was uncomfortable in some places, but I've definitely felt worse tattoo pain. *shrug*



    I'm getting some new tattoo's tomorrow! Three greyhound portraits on my right arm Yay, ink!

    It all hurts. It will never be painless.
