The best tattoo studio in Bali will let you know during your consultation that the pain you’re going to experience will differ. Everyone’s threshold of pain tolerance is different; skin sensitivity and many other factors (such as genetics) are at play here.

So while your friend may say that getting tattooed simply feels if their skin simply felt like it was prickled, you may not feel that way. Another important thing to consider is the body parts you’re planning to get tattooed at. Some parts of your body are simply going to be so much more painful compared to others. If you want to get the best tattoo in Bali it’s highly advisable that you consider everything carefully.

Some of the measurable factors that may affect pain tolerance are as follows:

  • Age and weight of the person who receive the tattoo. People with low body fat in some areas of their body may feel more pain when getting tattooed. However, it’s also true that heavier people may have stretched, thinner skin, which may affect their pain tolerance.
  • First-time tattoo collector and repeat collector. It’s pretty common feeling that your second time getting a tattoo may not feel as painful as the second one (again, this depends on many factors).
