Is a Wrist Tattoo Painful?We’ve mentioned all the amazing reasons to get a wrist tattoo, but the next question is, “How much does it hurt?” Whether it’s your back, your rib cage, or your little finger, tattoo pain is inevitable when committing to your forever body art. For a wrist tattoo, the thinner skin of the wrist area will offer less cushioning for the needle than other fleshier areas of the body. It may increase the sensations felt for some people. There’s no bone near the surface, however, so this may ease the pain in comparison to having a bonier area tattooed, such as an ankle or a rib cage. Another aspect to consider is that the size of the canvas dictates the size of the tattoo. A wrist tattoo is only ever going to be small and, usually, they are simply designed. It means a shorter timeframe for the procedure and all things considered would make this experience less traumatic overall when you remember it a few years down the line. A person’s pain threshold depends greatly on their level of physical and mental comfort at the time. It’s worth noting, too, that you’ll more than likely be sitting in a comfortable, relaxed position with a full view of proceedings during a sitting for a wrist tattoo. It doesn’t change the procedure itself, but it may make you feel relaxed and less susceptible to sharp needle sensations. Sitting comfortably and being able to track progress may keep your mind occupied and away from thinking about any pain. It has to be better than lying in sideways in an awkward position for hours having an armpit tattooed.
