We’ve all been there. You finally decide on the design you’re after, the body part to be adorned and how you’re going to explain it to your mum.

Deposit made, appointment booked, you’re all set, right?

Except for that niggling question that just won’t go away… just how much is this going to hurt?

It’s a fair question and one that gets asked in Sydney tattoo shops and studios all over the world on a daily basis.

Unfortunately it isn’t always an easy one to answer.

No really, does it?

While it’s true that all tattooing causes some level of discomfort, ranging from a very mild irritation to actual pain, the level of discomfort varies tremendously for each individual.

It can depend on a number of factors, from your individual pain threshold to the placement of the tattoo and the sensitivity of particular areas of the body.

To ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible, it’s essential to make sure you are well-fed, rested and feeling good naturally – the best state of mind to experience the tattoo process.

Have a good breakfast or lunch before your appointment and avoid the consumption of alcohol before being tattooed. Celebrate afterwards if need be!

And if you’re being tattooed in Sydney at Inner Vision Tattoo, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands with experienced professionals who know how to get the job done as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Our friendly counter staff are always happy to answer your questions and reassure any pre-appointment jitters. Call us on (02) 8012 0770 from 11am to 7pm seven days a week.
