It depends on your tolerance for pain and what you consider painful. However, in general, most people are able to tolerate the discomfort and find that it is a small price to pay for something that they will be proud to wear on their body. During the tattoo process ink is placed in the dermis, the second layer of skin, therefore, minor discomfort should be expected. Most people report that getting a tattoo feels like a sunburn but with proper care and by following after care instructions provided by our San Diego tattoo artist, all discomfort should subside within a few days.
