man experiencing pain while getting tattooJust like everything in life, when it comes to tattoos, everybody has a different opinion about the topic. If you’re doing research about how much getting a tattoo hurts, you’ll notice that every experience is different. This is because we all have a different tolerance for pain.

But what if after getting the tattoo done you want to get rid of it? When that time comes, you’ll need to investigate laser tattoo removal to accomplish the job. Much like getting a tattoo, the pain levels each person experiences during laser tattoo removal is very different.

Getting a Tattoo Done vs Laser Tattoo Removal

Do you know the phrase that says, “no pain, no gain”? This also holds true when getting new ink. Individuals that have gone through the process of getting a tattoo to describe the pain like a sharp, stinging pain or a burning sensation. The level of pain and discomfort will vary largely depending on the area. Areas like the arms, shoulders, and other body areas with more fat tend to be less sensitive to pain. On the other hand, areas like the ribs, feet, elbow ditch, and armpits are more sensitive, meaning you’re likely to feel the burn.

Like getting a tattoo, the placement of the ink being removed plays a big role in the level of pain you may feel. That’s because, underneath our skin, there are receptor cells that will pick up signals and send them to the brain. Places like the hands and feet have more receptor cells, meaning you can expect to feel a little more pain in these areas.
