it depends where you get it Yes, it's just a question of how much. People vary; their tolerance to pain varies, both compared to other people and depending how chipper they're feeling. Long tattoo sessions can become very painful. A topical anaesthetic such as Emla cream can greatly reduce tattoo pain. it depends on where you get the tattoo and on the person. Some people say the foot, ankle, hand, or neck are the worst spots to get a tattoo, but other people have said their hand tattoo was one of the least painful tattoos they've had.
