I have to agree with Silver on the pain thing. I'm a wuss and I hate needles, but....I have a full back tattoo that is almost done. I've been to 3 sittings of it, and really just need to get the money to finish what I want done to it.

For me, the most painful part of it was when it got close to my sides. Everyone said the back would hurt because of the spine, but honestly, I liked it. Yeah it vibrated my spine and skull a little, but it felt a bit like a massage. I've also got a "tramp stamp" that didn't hurt at all. I asked my tattooist if it was supposed to feel that good and he said nope and joked that he'd have to charge me extra.

OK, I'll show my ignorance.......what's a "tramp stamp"?

ROFL- a tramp stamp is a tattoo on your lower back right above your bum.

as for pain. i had a tattoo put on my hip and I'm a thin girl and woo it hurt ALOT!! the motivation of not messing up the tattoo is the only thing that kept me from jumping every time it hit my hip bone.

It's a tattoo directly above my jean line. For clarification, it's my astrological sign.
