One question that perhaps everyone asks themselves before getting a tattoo is: will it hurt?
Of course a tattoo is always connected to pain, but there are places where it hurts less and places where it is hard to bear. However, it must be mentioned that everyone has a different endurance of pain and therefore perceives pain differently. In addition, one must note that the pain is also related to the size of the tattoo, as well as the age, older people are in most cases more pain sensitive than young.

Choose a good place for your first tattoo
For your first tattoo you might want to choose a less painful place, such as on your outer arm. Otherwise, the calf, buttock and forearm are good places for a less painful tattoo.

Do not get a tattoo there
The most dangerous place is the eyeball, this trend is not only extremely painful, but the risk of getting an infection is higher and in the worst case this can lead to loss of sight.
Lastly, you should know that a tattoo removal is even more painful.
