Find out where to fill the tattoo less painfully, how to prepare for the session and what is necessary for successful healing!

How much will it hurt?

It is difficult to unequivocally answer this question, because everyone has their own pain threshold, but the average data show that the most painful sensations arise when the tattoo is applied to the back region of the knee, the groin, nipples, ulnar fossa, and the inner surface of the shoulder. In places where the bones are located close to the skin (elbows, collarbones), too, will be quite unpleasant. The least painful zones are: the outer side of the shin, the outer side of the thigh, the inside of the forearm, the shoulder.

Choosing the place of the future tattoo remember that behind the tattoo on the back it will be very difficult to look after yourself!

Preparing for the session

  1. Prepare the wardrobe for the time of healing: clothes should be free and comfortable.
  2. During the week before the session, avoid sunburn.
  3. Before the session, buy ointment based on dexpanthenol, absorbent diaper, hypoallergenic patch or mesh bandage.
  4. The day before, be sure to have a good night's sleep and eat.

Tips for healing
