The Least Painful Places for a Tattoo ...


Getting a tattoo is going to hurt. There's no way around the pain. I mean, you're going to be letting a needle push itself into your skin again and again. However, the area you get your tattoo in will determine just how much pain you're going to feel. If you don't want to squirm while you're sitting in that tattoo chair, then you should think about getting your ink in one of these spots:

Your Thigh

tattoo,flower,close up,arm,hand, Your thighs should have more flesh than the rest of your legs, which is why it's one of the best places to get a tattoo. Just stick to the front or side of your thighs and avoid the inside of your thighs, which can definitely be painful. If you can't have any ink showing at work or during family events, this spot is perfect for you. When you have on pants, capris, or a pencil skirt, no one will be able to glimpse your tattoo. However, when you want it to be in view, you can put on some shorts or a mini skirt and show it off to the world.


Your Upper Back

face,hair,photography,girl,beauty, Getting a tattoo on your upper back shouldn't hurt all that badly, as long as you avoid the bones on your shoulder blades and the area on your neck. If you're thinking about getting something tiny that wouldn't stretch across your entire back and hit those danger spots, then the pain shouldn't be all that intense.


Your Upper Arm

hair,person,clothing,tattoo,photography, Upper arm tattoos aren't only for men. There are women with some super cute ones (I mean, look at Ruby Rose). If you know you're going to end up getting a whole sleeve done, then you might as well start off easy by tattooing your upper arm.


Your Forearm

clothing,thigh,leg,arm,tattoo, Tattoos that stretch across your forearm aren't actually that painful, as long as you avoid the area by your wrist. If you're really worried about the pain, then try getting some words written across your forearm. They won't take as long as a picture would take, especially if you don't want the words filled in or adorned with any special designs.


Your Calf

tattoo,leg,thigh,arm,pattern, Calf tattoos aren't as common as other tattoos, but they're just as adorable. They shouldn't be all that painful and you'll get to lay down in your tattoo chair during the process. A calf tattoo will also give your crush some extra incentive to let you walk in front of him. That way, he can see how hot your ink looks.


Your Butt

hair,clothing,undergarment,thigh,leg, You probably don't want a tattoo on your booty, even though it's one of the least painful places for a tattoo. No matter how skinny you are, the area has a lot of flesh, which means that you won't feel the needle as intensely as you would in the areas that have less space between you and your bones.


Anywhere, but Your Genitals

human action,human positions,sitting,person,thigh, If you don't want to experience extreme pain, avoid getting tattooed on your ribcage, hips, nipples, or genitals. Thinking about those spots getting poked with a needle is painful enough.

Once you come up with a tattoo design that you love, it won't matter how much pain you have to go through to get it, because the end product will be well worth your struggle. How many tattoos do you have?
