  • I have a wrist tattoo and have had it for almost nine years now and I still love it. Out of all of my tattoos, it was the least painful.

  • I also have a wrist tattoo, its my son's name with a 4 leaf clover. It was the least painful, and fast! I have had it for almost 2 years now, and it looks great!

  • I have a wrist tattoo of a flower with DD's name. I've had it for a little over a year and it still looks great. Out of four tattoos, this was the least painful.

  • I have a wrist tat and I don't think tats hurt at all. If you can go thur child birth then you can deal with any pain. I have 15 tats the most painful part of any of mine was the 8 1/2 hours on my belly for my back piece. I have DD chest need I say more :~)

  • I have a wrist tattoo which is maybe less than a 1/2" away from my palm and to be honest that was the most painful tattoo I had but so worth it. Just be sure you really want that tattoo there before you get it.

  • ANy area with frequent exposure to sun will fade but hte good news is that they can be touched up whenever needed. Sunscreen over the area will help to. I can only imagine that the inside of a wrist would be sensitive but if it gets to be to much just take a short break right? It will be great. Post pics after it's done! Man I wish i could afford to get one more!!

  • I have a wrist tattoo -- it hurt a little but only took 3 minutes -- good luck!

  • My wrist tattoo didnt' hurt very much. But mine is black lettering. My colored flower tattoos on my back hurt the worst. You might have more pain just because of what you are getting.
