Where’s the Most Painful Place (on the Body) to Get Tattooed

Like“ us on Facebook

http://www.facebook.com/tattoodome

Every person is different and we all have slightly different thresholds and experiences of pain. However, we all share some commonalities that determine the likelihood, sensitivity, and intensity to which we feel pain.

As a general rule there are three factors to be aware of: How thin (or thick/fat) the skin in the area of question is, how close to bone the area is, how close and how many nerve endings are in the area nerve endings are in the area.

In general, nerve endings are greatest in the areas that are most sensitive to touch. Also, areas that are near joints tend to have more nerve endings. The more nerves, and/or proximity to bone, the more likely for increased pain. So keeping that in mind.

The Process of a Custom Tattoo Design

The process of getting custom Tattoo designs can be a daunting one to someone getting a Tattoo for the first time. Recently some Tattoos have gotten a bad rap because people don’t take the time to get something thoughtful or what they would really like to keep on themselves for a long time, some of these people have “tramp stamps”, which are generally found on the lower back. Many of these Tattoos are not custom Tattoo designs but something picked out of a book and do not accurately represent what the wearer would like to have on their body. So before taking the plunge of getting a Tattoo, it’s a good idea to seek custom Tattoo designs as a way to ensure that you get something that portrays the message you can live with for a very long time.

It can be difficult to articulate what you want to a Tattoo artist sometimes, but the best artists will take your ideas and create custom Tattoo designs that meet your requirements but fit your body style and tone. Well the good thing about custom Tattoo designs is that unlike the people who don’t put a lot of thought into their Tattoos, you’re able to work with the artist and their skills to create custom Tattoo designs that you’ll be happy with for quite a while.

This information is important because you’ll have this Tattoo on you for years to come and you should look for an artist that fits the style of custom Tattoo designs that you are seeking and the experience to take your ideas for custom Tattoo designs and provide you with the end result you’ll be happy with.

Tattoo Aftercare – How to Take Care of Your New Tattoo

Like“ us on Facebook

Now, you have your fresh new Tattoo, and you want to take good care of it! From this point on, your artist is not responsible for any infection or problems you may have with your Tattoo if you don’t take proper care of it. It is very important that you follow these guidelines. A really beautiful Tattoo can turn into a disaster if the proper aftercare is not taken.

Leave That Bandage Alone!
Your artist took the care to cover up your new Tattoo for a very good reason – to keep air-born bacteria from invading your wound. Yes, as pretty as your new Tattoo is, it is still a wound. Open flesh is a breeding ground for bacteria and infection. Leave the bandage on for a minimum of two hours. Excitement of having a new Tattoo will make you want to remove the bandage so you can show your friends, but your friends will just have to wait until later.

The only exception to this rule is if your artist covered your Tattoo with saran wrap or some kind of plastic. This is extremely detrimental to a Tattoo, so it should be removed immediately. You’re better off not having any covering than to be suffocating your new Tattoo with plastic wrap.

Wash and Treat
After you remove the bandage, you will want to wash your Tattoo. Use lukewarm water and mild, liquid antibacterial or antimicrobial soap (Satin and Provon are my highest recommendations. Dial tends to be too harsh – generic brand antibacterial soaps are actually better) to gently wash away any ointment, blood and/or plasma and to completely clean the area. Do not use a washcloth or anything abrasive. Your hand is your best tool in this case. (If your Tattoo feels slimy and slippery, you have probably been oozing plasma. Try to gently remove as much of this as possible – when the plasma dries on the skin surface, it creates scabs.)

Then pat (do not rub) the area firmly with a CLEAN towel or paper towel to get it completely dry. Follow with a very light application of your choice of ointment. A&D vitamin enriched ointment would be my first choice, but if you don’t have any, Bacitracin or a similar antibacterial ointment is acceptable.

**Do not use Neosporin. This is a wonderful product for cuts and scrapes, but not for Tattoos. Some can have an allergic reaction to the Neosporin, which causes little red bumps. When the bumps go away, so does the ink, and you end up with a polka-dotted Tattoo.**

Specialty Products and Lotions
If you prefer, you can also use a specialty product such as Tattoo Goo or H2Ocean. It’s not necessary, as many over the counter products work just fine, but it’s your choice. Use the products as directed as continue for 3-5 days.

After that, continue to keep it clean, but you can use lotion when needed instead of ointment, to keep the skin soft. Whatever lotion you use, it should be dye and fragrance free. A lot of artists recommend Lubriderm, but I have found that Lubriderm stings when I apply it. Instead, I have had great success with Eucerin. See also: Aftercare Contradictions: Why there are so many views on what product is best.

Bathing, Showering, Hot Tubs, and Swimming
Yes, you can (and should!) shower with a new Tattoo. It’s OK to get your Tattoo wet – just don’t soak it. Submerging your Tattoo in a bath or hot tub can cause serious damage, so you’ll want to avoid those for 2-3 weeks, but showering is perfectly fine as long as you don’t saturate your Tattoo. If you get soap or shampoo on your Tattoo, just remove it quickly with water. Swimming – whether it be a pool, fresh water or salt water – should be avoided for at least 2 weeks.

Scabbing and Peeling

After a few days, you will notice some peeling and possibly a little scabbing. Excessive scabbing could indicate a poorly-done Tattoo, but a little is sometimes normal and there is no need to panic. Apply warm moist compresses to the scabs for about 5 minutes 2-3 times a day to soften them and they will eventually come off on their own. (Do not apply ointment or lotion to a softened scab – wait for it to dry) You will also start to itch, just like a sunburn when it begins to heal. The advice here is, don’t pick, and don’t scratch! If the skin itches, slap it. If it is peeling, put lotion on it. And if it is scabbing, just leave it alone. Your Tattoo is almost healed, and now is not the time to ruin it!

Protection from the sun
After your Tattoo is healed, from now on, you will always want to protect it from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. These can fade and damage a brilliant Tattoo very fast. Before spending a lot of time in excessive heat, protect your Tattoo with a minimum 30SPF sunblock. This will keep your Tattoo vibrant for many years, and it will continue to be a source of great pride.
