  • it depends where you get it...I have a small star on my arm and a rose with thorns on my ankle:) the one on my ankle hurt a little bit more. For me it just felt like needles stabbing me constantly.

  • I likened the 'pain' to a feeling similar to having someone scratch you when you're sunburned, but not as intense. It wasn't anything unbearable. But that also is dependent upon where you have it put. When the needle goes over a more bony area it hurts a little more.

  • Oh yeah .... tensing up while you're getting it will draw the needle in deeper and make it hurt more... so just relax and breathe. The artist will always stop if you need them too.
