Hello everyone! I want to get my first tattoo, but I am terrified of needles. Rolling Eyes I know there is probably no such thing as a painless tattoo, but is there something I can do to make it less painful? Is it possible that taking pain killers before getting the tattoo will help? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If the sensation is the most important factor for you, do not get one. You are not ready.

Painkillers would work but WHY take them.
You feel tattoos but they don't HURT that bad.

Pain varies on person, but in my experiance it only hurts while there doing it and then it's sore afterwards while it heals. Dont take the pain killers until later when it's sore it was ease the pain during i dont think they'll help much. Eat before you go

Yes it can be almost pain free.

My tattoo artist used a cream that numbed the skin, like they use on children in hospital. I had a fairly large tat on my lower back. I didn't feel the outline at all. By the time he was filling in I could feel a little more and it only got sore towards the end, but that was well over an hour after the cream was taken off.

When I had my second tattoo on my upper back, the cream was not as sucessfull, I think because there is less flesh there, but really, it isn't an unpleasant feeling at all. I had to have a little work done on the second tat about month afterwards. It was only 10 mins work, so didn't need the cream, and it didn't feel any worse than at the end of the previous sessions.

I think it is quite rare for this cream to be used, I'd never heard of it before. But you know, it really isn't painful, beleive me, I am a real wimp as far as pain goes, and I was ok.

To be honest, I almost enjoy the sensation.

I have this "Magick Cream" of my own. One time this guy claimed it hurt real bad...just wouldn't sit still. So, I picked up a bottle of distilled water and told him I was going to apply some topical pain killer, and spritzed a bit on him. He felt much better, then. People are idiots. LMAO.

Like to know about a tat on my dick and no I don't want it to say your name. Wink It is tribal and I have a picture of the tat I would like to get but would like to know if there is anything I should know before doing it myself? Shocked

I think it depends on the person. My first tattoo on my wrist hurt but in a numb way. I told my mum it felt like he was cutting me with a hot razor. But in a numb way...

I have one on my arm and I didn't feel anything. I guess I have a mind capacity to block a certain amount of pain out. I honestly don't recall any part of it being painful. And the one on my forearm, well I fell asleep while he was doing it soo...

My chest. I admit it hurt. But I'd do it again, and again... I still need it shaded in, so maybe that will be more painful. I didn't fall asleep though! lol The stars next to it didn't feel like anything. Kinda ticklish. Sorry I don't have pics. But, it really depends on the person. Guys have told me that their chest tats hurt and I tell them mine wasn't so bad. Don't know if it's a guy/girl thing or what.

Again, it's the person. If you've never been punched in the face it would hurt more than someone who is used to it. Or who is stronger, or used to pain. You know? You kinda just have to go for it. If you want it as much as you think you do, then the pain will be worth it. That's why I think I can ignore it so much!

If you can't take a tattoo 100% straight and sober, without anesthetic of any kind, then you BY GOD do not deserve a tattoo.

Painless Tattoo

Won't last as long as the real thing, but it won't hurt either.

A bit confused by the whole "i like tattoos/afraid of needles" bit - when I looked at the machine, it didn't look anything like " needle". When I think needles I think of syringes, and a tattoo machine just doesn't like like that to me. Wouldn't the fear of needles be triggered, at least for some, by the actual sight of a "needle" (in this case a stereotypical syringe) - which a tattoo machine looks nothing like? Sorry, kind of off-topic in a dead thread but I've never quite grasped people who see a syringe and equate it to a machine... besides, (for me at least) tattooing feels nothing like a typical shot.

Wow, this spam is so sophisticated that I can't even tell that it's spam. Really.
