    I want a small black butterfly tattoo in my inner wrist but everytime i do research into it and read other people's accounts of their first tattoo on the net I start worrying about the pain. Apparantly the inner wrist is the most worst part. Has anyone else had a tattoo in this area?

    If you really want it, you won't let anything put you off. If you're so easily discouraged you don't really want it!

    The pain won't last long. I've never had a tattoo, but it will hurt for a few hours at most. And if you want the tattoo it will be worth it.

    I know a friend who has on both wrists...he said the right wrist was fine, as he was right handed and used it to write etc. and so was stonger with more muscle, the left one hurt like hell as it wasn't used as much and therefore had less muscle...

    Generally speaking its areas over bone that hurt the most. Wrists aren't as bad as ankles or vertebrae, and especially not if you're not after one on the wristbone itself.
    My own didn't hurt at all, but it is on my arm so obviously lots of padding there.
    From what tattooed friends have said, the worst you'll feel is a stinging, scratching sensation, but nothing you can't handle. Like Juno said, if you want it badly enough you'll get it, pain or no... hell I managed it and I'm terrified of needles.

    i wanted one on my wrist but was put off when people said that future employers will be put off when they notice them.

    i opted for a tribal styley sort of design on my lower back instead. im not going to lie it does hurt especially the outline. i was so glad i opted for a smallish design rather than a large one. its not unbearable.....i would have another one if i saw a design i really liked.

    Hmm, was gonna get it on my left wrist. I am fairly spontaneous so I probably will just get it done. I know I definately want it, just not sure bout my pain threshold.

    --------------

    I figured the wrist could be quite discreet since you can cover it with a watch or bracelet for interviews. It isn't gonna be very big.

    I should be getting one tomorrow A chinese symbolof my name on my hipbone, you think it is a sensitive spot?

    arh rite fair enough thats cool.
    have you seen a design you like yet? dont worry about the pain so much, if you really want it done just go for it. if its a small simple design it shouldnt take longer than 20 minutes dependent on if your opting for a coloured one of just a black one.

    I don't like them....and the wrist idea sounds worse - I think the employers not liking it is a valid point that should be taken into account.

    Haha, thats the website that put me off. this guy was talking about his wrist tattoo being all bloody. Anyway, i don't want to go into it with my eyes closed, i should be able to hack it. Lord knows if i survived the blood gas test and will probably give birth at some point in life i can handle a little tattoo...right!

    How original of you.


    To the OP:
    My friend is covered in tattoos (he is a tattoo artist so), he says that the worst place to get one is on the stomach right in the center . What makes you think that the wrist is in anyway discreet? It isn't covered by any clothing for a start - are you going to wear a watch?

    is it really wierd that im dead against both tatoos and piercings, i dont mind other people having the mand think they can look good. But i dunno i just want to keep my skin perfect without putting any lasting puncture holes or marks on it. Not because of employment purposes, just because i like the idea of a complete clean sheet of skin

    My main worry is that i will look like an idiot when im an old man, i know for sure that a tattoo would be cool now (aslong as it isnt a generic Asian piece of crap symbol).

    Why do you think that? 'Piece of Asian crap' ?

    Everybody has them and they are entirely meaningless to the people who have them, they can't read them at all so they have no use. Its just a black squiggle on their body that they are told means something in a language they don't speak. How many actually chinese people have you seen with these printed on their bodys? I've never seen any.

    Never mind the pain ( I"ve had two and it doesnt hurt that much really), just think of where it will be as you get older and qualified, you"ll probably spend the rest of your life trying to cover it up, why not have one where it is easily covered???

    lizziegee is 100% right. Alot of proffessions won't hire staff as eagerly if they have visible tattoos and the job requires them to engage with clients.

    I got a maple leaf (my avatar) done on my right shoulder, took 90 mins to do, only hurt for a min or 2 at the most, never hurt after it was done. Thing with mine, is a t-shirt will cover it up, so is really nice. Think long and hard about it before you get it done.

    The pain of a tattoo is not really pain. It is, and I am in no way a masochist, quite a nice pain to tell the truth. Over the bone is when it is most noticable, but even then i was able to just have a relaxed conversation with the artist and her assistant. Really, really don't let the pain put you off, if it does then maybe you're not that sure about the idea of a tattoo completely. Go for it! and post a picture when it's done.
