the least painful place is on the back of your shoulder, anywhere that is fatty really.

Separated from bone and muscle by fat are least painful because the vibrations are less jarring. An ankle tattoo is less painful than one on the hip (near the bone). The underside of the arm is probably the most painful. That's why some people have bands that are only around the top part of their arms. It's sort of like a constant cat scratch, but if it's right near the bone, the vibrations can be very uncomfortable.
