no it doesn't, well not much i have a picture of my mother there and it was only a wee bit when they started. does any one know if it hurts when you get your penis tattooed or if it has to be erect when it is being done?

I got a lower back tattoo yesterday, and I'd say it hurt like hell. I wasn't expecting much pain to be honest, and I'm pretty good when it comes to pain, but it was honestly awful. It's a rather large tattoo and took a few hours which is why it hurt so bad, but a smaller tattoo in that area is smarter if you're bad with pain. It honestly feels like a hot razor blade scraping the heck out of you, but I don't regret doing it. It was painful, but what do you really expect? It is a tattoo.

It hurts a little!! I had a lower back tattoo and I thought it was painful but the amount of pain will depend on you as a person.  I am 18 and slim which means there is little fat before there is bone making a tattoo more painful for me if u have a lot or more fat then me i would think it wouldn't be that bad! mine took an hour and 15 Min's to do an although it hurt it was bearable and after-wards i forgot the pain and was very happy with my tattoo.  its been 5 days today and its healing well but is starting to itch alot which is to do with the scab but its all good news so my bf tells me lol. If you want a tattoo go for it because no matter how painful it is its not for very long and then u have the tattoo for life.  to me it felt like a hot burning sensation but as soon as the tattooist stops to refill the pain goes so u can always ask for a brake:)

adam herrick, apparently penis tattoos are really pleasurable, and not painful at all. groin area and stomach etc really hurt, but apparently penis tattoos are just really nice, and everyone who has them ends up getting an erection lol. read this for info: http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/Delta/2512/billy.html   good luck with your decision

about the penis tattoo, don't listen to the other guy (Mick)"apparently" he dosn'thave 1. I do I have flames tattooed on the head of my penis that are colored in red and orange. Let me tell you, YES it hurts but the pain goes away almost instantly when your done. It's just a little tender for the next few days. It's so worth it if your thinking about doing it and anyone you show just thinks your nuts! It's great

I've got quite a few tattoos already but I got my first lower back tat 2day. I've got to say it hurt like a motherf****r. Apparently men have more more nerve endings in their lower back than women and let me tell you, I think it may be true. I wouldn't put anyone off getting this area done as I couldn't be happier with mine, I got my 5 day old daughter's name in Celtic letters all the way over my lower back and it's breath taking......GO FOR IT!!!

I'm getting a lower back tattoo in 18 more days. I'm not quite sure exactly what I want, I want to be sure because it's permanent.. but I'm wondering if anyone knows some good sites to look for lower back designs and tribals? Please help me out if you can. I've been looking for a while now and time's running out! Haha. As far as the pain goes though, I'll be able to handle it. I already have MANY parts of my body pierced. What the hell will a tattoo really feel like? Just some more pain, piece of cake.. haha! I love it*

Bull! Tattoos do hurt. Anyone who tells you that they don't are full of it. Yes some people may say it didn'thurt "that" much and it does depend on the person, but they hurt. They are breath taking at times, the pain is more annoying and uncomfortable rather then a "tearing" pain. Tattoos are worth the pain though! Advice...take awhile to decide what you really want and don't just pick one off the wall. It's forever.

I have got a large tattoo around my left leg and I will admit that it does hurt but most of the time it is a nice pain but sometimes it really hurt(such as the muscle(i have skinny legs)). I am getting the top part of my back tattooed in a couple of days time and I am going to go in there expecting the same pain, if not more because if you expect a real bad pain then it will normally be better. PAIN IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL THING!get lots of tattoos everyone!

wel i'm a 16 year old girl, and i have a heart on my pelvic area, that didnt hurt, i also have a rose round my ankle- which hurt a fair bit. I had a chinese symbol on the top right of my back and thats was in my mind the one that hurt the least, i also have a large tribal band with a butterfly in the center at the bottom of my back, now i hate pain and that hurt but i just kept thinkin how lush it will look after it has healed. Tattoos are soooo adictive,dont you think?? Any ideas for another one? I'm going tomorrow to have two paw prints on my boobs, will write more after that.  xx Totally recomend tattoos

I am 29 years old and have many large tats on various parts of my body. The most recent one is a large tribal bird very low on my back, I will not lie this particular tat hurt so bad at points that I got the sweats and thought I might throw up...mostly it killed on my spine by my tail bone where there is solid black coloring. The only other one that I remember being uncomfortable was my stomach..but even that wasn't as bad as the lower back.

Okay i just got back from getting my tattoo.  If you want to see what i got then go here:
http://www.tattoonow.com/Tattoo-Designs/Tribal/item715.html

The only part that hurt like hell was the outlining.  It does feel like a hot razor blade cutting into your skin.  The filling in didn't really hurt all that bad.  My body instantly began to sweat, and i mean i was completely drenched and water was dripping from EVERYWHERE!  Also, there were some nerves being hit and it would affect the nerves in the left side of my body like my arm, finger tips, and my knee.  It felt like my nerves were being vibrated by something really hot.  Right now i'mbleeding pretty bad and i can't take off the bandage until 10 and right now it's 7.  I'll update you all in a couple of days and let you know how i'mdoing!!!  PEACE

I have a daisy arm band on my right arm. When I went to get it I had every intention of getting a lower back tattoo but I was scared and the guys were all telling me to do the arm band because it was less painful. To my surprise it didn't hurt at all!! So a year later I still wanted my lower back tribal so I went back and made myself do it. Yeah it hurt a little, but everyones pain tolerance levels are different. For me it was a piece of cake!!! :) My next tat will be a skeleton gecko on the top of my left foot. I've already drawn it up and its gonna be soooo cute. TTFN

I had my lower back tattoo done 3 days ago. I was quite nervous waiting for the bloke to come and call me in and the initial sitting on the chair waiting for him to start was a bit nerve wracking but although the outline hurt somewhat the filling in didnt really hurt at all, and it only took about 20 minutes too so it was over in no time. It didn't hurt at all once I left, at some points that evening I even forgot I'd had it done coz there was no pain at all, it was red for about 30 minutes but that soon went away.

I got a tattoo on monday (june 21st) on my lower back, of 5 stars. I had anticipated it to be really painful, and I am a wuss, and hate needles. But, to my surprise, it was not painful. He worked on me for about an hour, and it was the easiest thing ever!! If you want a tattoo, just do it! It is so worth it in the end. Now, 2 days after, I just feel like I have a little sunburn. Good Luck!

I plan on getting 5 star tattoos on my lower back, Ive heard a lot of things about lower back tattoos like: if u have more fat it doesn't hurt, if u get it tattooed closer to your crack it hurts, if u get it tattooed by your love handles it hurts, well i was wondering what the truth is for lower back tattoos. i plan on getting jus med size stars, pink and black, i know a lot depends on pain tolerance, i have the side of my lip pierced, i didn't think that hurt much so does that help any, haha

I just got a lower back tattoo yesterday, and it was very painful!!!! It was my first tattoo and I had no idea what it would feel like! Some people said it would hurt, but not bad...others said it was like a burning sensation, or even being stung by a bee, but I have never been stung before, so that didn't help me! Some even said the area would go numb after the first couple minutes, and one of the other customers in the shop actually said it would tickle!! So, I wasn't expecting it to hurt as much as it did...but it hurt like HELL!!! It did not go numb ever, and it was the worst on my sides!!! Everyone said the spine would hurt more, and while the spine areas were painful, the sides were the WORST for me! The whole outlining process was the hardest part. My tattoo is 10" x 4" and very detailed..pretty large for a first tattoo, but I wanted to do it right the first time! Anyway, I have no regrets. It took about 1 1/2 hours, with no breaks, and I can't believe I made it through that pain!!! I guess everyone is different. Maybe to some it is not as bad as for others, but for me it was excrutiating the whole time. But totally worth it!!!

I had my tattoo yesterday, on my lower back. I read some of the comments on this website and got really scared. I knew they would hurt. When i got there to get it done this big guy was having his done on his arm, and he said it was painful and he had to take a break for fresh air 4 times and drink lots of sugary drinks or munch on fruit so he wouldnt pass out. His tattoo took him 2 hours. This scared me alot, i was that close to leaving but my hubby said your here now just try it otherwise youmight regret it... So i build the courage up and sat on the seat to get it done. The artist gave me a test coz i was so scared, she didnt put any ink in the tattoo machine and did her test. I was so suprised it didnt hurt at all. I was expecting to hurt like hell... So i toldher to coninue. I was told my tattoo was going to take 2 hours but because i didnt take any breaks or didnt feel faint or any pain i was done in one hour and 15 mins... Gods honest truth its not as bad as you think it will be. It feels like pins and needles, a more accurate comparision i think it feelslike is an ab belt that tenses your muscles put on a high level. Best thing i ever did. Would def do it again. Anyone who wants one, dont be scared, you'll love it. x

I got a large celtic/tribal tattoo on my lower back 5 months ago, and it DID NOT hurt. and the reason that "the outline hurts but filling in doesn't" is because after about 10 minutes you're numb to the pain anyway. Getting my tat was the best thing i've ever done. words of advice to you little 15 and 16 year olds- wait. but if you're going to go ahead and get one, make sure you're getting it for the right reasons, not because it's 'cool' or because it's the latest trend.

Tattoos definatly hurt worse than getting your belly button pierced.  Getting my belly button pierced honestly didn't hurt at all, it happened so fast.  It did sting for a little while afterwards.  But having a tattoo done takes soo much longer than a piercing so you are dealing with the pain longer, maybe that is why it is worse.  You know how people so tattoos only hurt for a little while, and then it goes numb.  Well that wasn't the case for me.

hey,im 17 yrs old n i got my first tat on my lower bakk took a hr and that didnt hurt that much jus on the sides like where its more sensitive the bone doesnt hurt, n i got my otha one on my top shoulder took 20mins the artist used the biggest needle he uses to color it in n that fukin hurt like a bytch!! otha parts didnt hurt its jus that he switched the needle...it hurt. lol i wana get anotha one on my hip soon. once u get a tat their addicting cuz u kno what the pain feels like. to me it felt like a knife cutting into ur skin. if u wana get a tatto i suggest u do make sure u really want it.  its worth it.

I am almost 18 and I am getting a tribal tattoo on my lower back that I designed myself. I am somewhat a wuss but I mean, your back goes numb after about 10 minutes and it lasts the whole time I'm here one earth so why not get it? I'm really excited. It's gonna cost about $200 though. That's the worst part of it I think. LoL

I just had a butterfly/tribal tattoo done on my lower back. I have been told you should start small with your first tattoo, but this one is a pretty good size. I love what the artist did, and it does feel kind of like a sunburn now. It didnt really hurt at all until he did the shading. Everyones body is differnt though. YES it hurts...its a tattoo, why would stabbing yourself over and over again with ink be pain free?

Out of all the places i've been tattooed (arms, stomach, ankles, back) the lower back was by far the most painful.  On my first lower back session, I got the outline done and sat for about 2 hours.  When I went in a month later to start the coloring, I was shocked at how much more it hurt this time.  Usually the outline hurts most because they use a different type of needle and have to push a bit harder, but the coloring/shading hurt way more because the artist basically went over and over on the same spot until it was colored in.  The most painful parts of the lower back were down by the ass crack and the love handles.  I was always told the area directly above the spine would hurt the most but the love handles were more sensitive.  My problem with getting tattooed on the lower back is that it's a very ticklish area, the artist will sometimes lower the needle to your skin and you'll want to jump - not because it hurts but because it's just a naturally sensitive area - its like when someones giving you a back rub and they touch your sides and you jump up a little.  If you're getting a small tattoo that will take less than an hour, the pain is very tolerable - yes it hurts but the time will pass quickly enough and it will be over.  if you're that worried about pain, the least painful area for myself (and from other people i know) is the upper arms!  Ok that's all the input i really have to offer!

Hello everyone! I went to get my first tattoo yesterday for my 19th b-day:)(which was actually  on march 1st) on my lower back. But before I got one done, I came here to see what you all were saying about your tattoos. Honestly, getting a tatoo on your lower back does hurt, but it mainly is an uncomfortable feeling w/ a burning sensation! The outlining hurt the least for me anyway, but the filling in hurt the most, the overall hurt came from when he/she moves toward/over the spine. I mean the needle does not  actually go into the spine like a spinal tap, but when the tattoo artsist is doing the tattoo across the spine, that is when it  really hurts. Really, it did not hurt as bad as I thought it would. My 25 yr. old sister can not take pain like that, and she made a last minute decision to get one on her upper back.  Though she did grit her teeth a little, afterwards, she said it did not hurt as bad as she thought it would.Overall, it is worth it!  Just take a deep breath, & go for it!!:) Peace&Love

I have tatoo's on my arms, leg, Neck, and Back. The worst one was on the back. But it took 4 hours and is accros the whole lowerback and about 12 inches up. The thing I have found is the more breaks the artist takes the more pain there is and long breaks suck when they start back up. Other then that lines hurt more then gray wash, and color feels great too :) but if they do it with a dry needle to make a " Blood Line " so they can gray wash now that HURTS ! But all in all I would do it all over again. I have 6 so far and will contune to get more.

Pain is part of the pleasure of tats.  If you are looking to avoid pain, or just want to look cool please avoid tats.  I have a large 3hr tribal piece in the small of my back. I have 3 other tats with over 9hrs in the chair. I have also had my nipples pierced and stretched. This is not for eveyone and if you just want your friends to like it you've missed the point. This is not meant to offend just please think about what and why you are doing this.

I'm getting a tattoo today for my 17th birthday. Everyone I've talked to said that it is painful but if you just grin and bear it it will all be worth it in the end. Just think your going to have art on your body that you can keep with you for the rest of your life. My dad didn't want me to get it he said "your to young to make a permanent expression on your body" I think your never to young. If you want something on your own body then thats up to you. I would recommend a tat to anyone who believes that expression is an art form. Don't get a tattoo just because everyone else has them and don't randomly pick a tattoo or artist before checking it out and making sure that you want it. Remember it's forever.

i had my 1st tattoo wen i was 15 on my lower back. ill be honest the outline of my tattoo did hurt but it was more like bearable pain that you can put up with and the colouring didn't hurt me at all you could only feel pressure and thats from a girls point of view. hope that helps.

I have a little tattoo on my lower back of a tribal butterfly and i decided to get something larger above it, for those of you that don't say it hurts that is a huge lie or maybe it depends on the person. I have a high pain tolerence and it took an hour and a half to do my tattoo and as embarrassing as it is i actually cried and did not think i could finish, that was the worst pain in my entire life... it is worth it now but i don't think i could do it again in that spot, that is my fourth tattoo and i thought that i was going to die

I just got a tribal tattoo done on my lower back today. I cringed like all hell. I'm 5'5 at 92lbs though (naturally don't gain weight) so it was going pretty much right into my spine, which hurt the worst. Halfway through, I remembered how someone said pain is psychological, I told myself it was just my fingernail dragging across my skin (as I had done earlier) and not a needle. It helped a whole lot. It took me about an hour and it's been 1.5 hours since it's done. I'd say it's well worth the pain. Afterwards, it feels liks a sunburn for a little while.

Honestly asking other people isnt the way to go as you can see already you've wound op with 500 diff answers. Only way your going to know is if you stick it out yourself. People are different and different areas pick up different sensations. All I know is mine hurt and it was small but it was becuase that's how I precieved it. It's your choice you make it.

I'd love to have a tattoo, but my mum won't allow it, I'm only 15 so i can see her point. However, I've been scouring the net for months now, I'm so serious about this tattoo! I want a tribal design with a heart in the middle, with some colour to it. I really want to find one which isn't a fad for me, something I'll never grow out of, unlike playboy bunnies (no offence to anyone who's got one, they're just not for me) any ideas on where to find good ones?
Thanks so much xxx

I had my first tattoo today - since I wasn't planning on getting more than one I knew I had to face the pain first time and get it done on my back.
After reading how much people said it hurts I can honestly say I was terrified. But when the tattooist started I literally smiled because it was nowhere near as bad as I expected and it wasn't really a bad pain...more annoying.
I've now got 'Sweet Dreams Come True' written in Chinese, it is about 6inches downwards in length along the bottom of my spine. The part surrounding the spine didn't hurt, but when the needle was actually in the center on my spine is was more painful.
But definitely don't hesitate because of the pain factor, its nothing compared to the extremity in your own head. Go for it!

I don't have a tattoo yet. I have one picked out tho for my lower back.  I'm making it a family day cause my mom and my brother are getting another one when we go.  Yes tattoos are going to hurt rather a lot or a little depending on the person.  But the way i see it, it shouldn't hurt that bad if people continue to get them after they've gotten them.  But that's just how i see it.

I got my first tattoo on my lower back about a year ago - it's of my daughter's name and can still remember the pain clearly! Although it was bearable, it seemed to go on for a lot longer than it did and got quite sore as the 'fleshier' parts of my back were done. I did make a big fuss about the pain as it was being done, although like most things, the pain was forgotten about once it was all over. Having said that though,I've always been a bit of a baby when it comes to pain; it took me a week to muster up the courage to get my tongue pierced which was completely pain free. But tattoos are well worth the pain and are on your body forever - just try not to think about the pain and get it over with!

Heck with that the worst part of a tattoo is the annoying itch that you get after a week or so. My tattoo itched so bad it was by far more annoying than the needle. I was always making my husband wash it cuz it felt sooo darn good lol. There were a few parts that make you jump but it ain't too bad at all.

if u want a tattoo that no1 else has, then u should design it yourself, not look on a website, or have someone else design it esp 4 u, :o)

I'm 16 and I'm thinking of getting a lower back tattoo also, and I think Ive decided on a butterfly tribal design in the center, it caught my eye right away, I know it will hurt but I have 16 piercings, and most of them in very painful areas, so Im sure i can sit out the pain. well i hope i can lol
hopefully it wont take to long, but I am goin 2 wait a month incase i change my mind on the design. I'l write back after i get it done an say how it went :o)

ok. i have a pretty big one covering my shoulder blade. i dont have one on my lower back yet but it's my next step. the one on my shoulder didnt hurt at all. felt exactly like i had a man behind me doing acupuncture. and if the tat artist knows what he or she is doing then you dont feel much at all. unless it's the neck, forearm, or head. lol or somewhere dumb like your nether parts......you know what i mean ;)

Well I have a tattoo on my ankle and i got it for my 15th birthday.It took an hour and a half. it has a tribal and a butterfly. it kinda hurt on the back and right on the bone. Ohter than that it didnt really hurt at all.People say that the inside of your ankle hurts the most but it really hurts on the bone it makes your whole foot vibrate.

I know everyone is saying it either, hurts like hell, or it doesn't hurt at all. I'm 17 and getting my first lower back tribal done.  I have no idea what to expect at all.  I'm scared as hell and I have no idea how I am with pain because I've never really gone threw anything that painful all I have is my bellybutton peirced.  I just want something to compare it to. Or if anybody could give me some good sites that has lowerback tattoos because I want to make sure I get one that I really really like and can live with forever.  I'm just really nervous!!

Hey, I'm turning 20 in a month and I have 4 tats. I have a tribal gecko(right ankle), my name in Egyptian Hieroglyphics(left bicep), a dragon w/ blue tribal design(shoulder to shoulder/upper middle back) and tomorrow I get a gargoyle wrapping around my left leg from my knee to my ankle.  I won't lie, tats do have there moments where they do hurt but more than anything it is mind game and it stings/burns/aggrevates/irritates more than hurt.  All and all they are well worth it in the end because they are permanent and most are awesome.  Got INK? Happy INKING!!!

Dont be a chicken any kind of pain is in your head if you dont think it will hurt or if you really want one you wont really feel pain.  the key is deep breaths and staying calm also if you close your eyes with out clenching you wont notice the pain as much.  also if your tattooist allows ipods that can also keep your mind off it.  my friends use these techniques but me personally dont feel pain because i am not afraid

Tattoos are wonderful!  I got my first one this past Aug. 2005. Really, I thought it was going to be so painful...it was not. I don't think pain is even a good word to describe how it felt. More like a warm scraching feeling at the very worst. I'm into the whole pain kick though. I have several piercings and just figured this was the next step getting a tattoo. I love my tattoo. I am currently working on putting together my next tattoo.

Everyone has a different pain threshold and there are many different factors that influence the amount of pain felt when getting a tattoo.  If the tattoo is on the bone, it will hurt worse, or on a sensitive area.  Areas such as your ankle hurt less, while right on the shoulderblade (i have a rather large butterfly there) or in the groin or pubic area hurt worse.  My lowerback tatty is quite large with many colours, and although it goes across my spine, I would have to say that the most painful part is the sides where you have more fat, due to the fact that the skin is more sensitive here, and you have more fat. With more fat, the artist has to go deeper so the ink does not smudge or get a feathered look.  It is painful, but bearable.  Imagine someone taking a fishing hook and dragging it through your skin.  It sounds bad, but thats about how it feels.  But you can stand it, and you will because your desire to get that tattoo is stronger than the pain, and the pain will only last a few hours.

Lower back tattoos hurt like a mother f-er. It was my first one, and it hurt so much. Some parts were okay, but other areas were so bad I could barely even stand it, so painful. My boyfriend got a band logo on his lower back too and he could hardly take it as well. It hurts but when its over its such a relief, and they both turned out well.

I got my second tattoo today. My first was 6 months ago which is 4 chinese symbols that go down my spine, that didn't really hurt much except when it was directly in the center of the spine and the outline hurt much more than the colouring in. My second today is a butterfly on my hip and it hurt like a b***h, I was persuaded to get it on my hip instead of my stomach because apparantly the pain is less but it still hurt way more than my back. I wasn't really worried about the pain this time because my spinal tattoo was fine...if only I'd have known in advance about the hip lol. But yeah my butterfly is cute, black and majenta with swirly detail coming from the wings...Tattoos hurt a little but they're worth it in the end. As for the question above, I thikn getting your bellybutton pierced and getting a tattoo are different kinds of pain, piercings are more blunt and direct pain, whereas tattoos are more of a hot scratching which does take longer but the pain tends to go away much faster when its finally complete.

Im 18 and have my left sleeve done when I was 17 and recently have jumped into my whole back being done, I have my own custom black tribal style. Let it be known that the arm outline hurt in AREA'S but the fill was more than bearable. Outline on lower back and rib area, and fill just about anywhere made me squirm to some extent, which I did not experience during any part of my sleeve. Definatly a pain which makes you flex your whole back, clench jaw and squinty eyes.

Definatly keep something you like on the wall some were in your house for a few months, look at it often and if you love it still then go ahead!


Enjoy

Well, im 18 and I just recently got a lower back tattoo and i'dsay it really hurt. So, if u cant take pain well then its not a good idea to get a tattoo there.....especially if it is ur first tattoo. i was 16 when i got my first tat (rose on my ankle) and its small yet noticable.....Ever since i got that one i wanted another one bc it didnt hurt. So, in my opinion, its a wise choice to get a small tattoo if its your first one then go from there.

Hey, i have two tats and let me tell you they dont hurt despite what some people may say. Yeah its uncomfortable and you feel a constant scratch but it doesnt hurt,I advise anyone who wants a tattoo to go for it, altho really think about what you want dont forget its for life!

I just got a lower back tattoo yesterday, but really low.. pretty much goes onto my ass, and mostly along my tailbone.. when the guy first put the needle to me I was a little suprised at how much it hurt, it depends on the area.... but overall I took it well.. and once it was over It didn't hurt at all and was worth it..

Getting a tattoo on your lower back can. Some people i know can get up from it but they enjoy that kind of pain. I have a lower back tattoo tribal with cat eyes. When they tattoo on my spine, tail bone, and hip bones i was ready to jump and walk out of there. But it's common for an area with not a lot of skin, mostly boney areas to hurt more. My tattoo took about 6 hours to from start to finish, not including the 3 breaks we took.

I just got my first tattoo a few hours ago. It's on my lower back. I wasn't expecting there to be much pain, but to be completely honest it was not a pleasant experience. It hurt the entire time and felt like a cat scratching me over and over again. However, the tattoo was something that I really wanted and I have no regrets. I would do it again. Just be sure that you can communicate with your tattooist and by all means, take a break if you need one!

The lower back tatt is waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy worse than a navel piercing.  My lower back tatt was my second tattoo and the outline was the hardest part.  Spine not so bad but on my hips, oh my!!!  It is solid black tribal and took about an hour and a half so that mighta had something to do with it.  It is very sensual though.  Pain was well worth it.

Hi. im 14 years old, and i am looking into getting a tattoo sometime this summer hopefully. I have already had my bellybutton pierced and my nose twice but they both got infected and I had to take them out. I do not have good tolerance to piercings so do you think the same will happen with a tattoo? also since I am only 14 years old I am worried that it may be a bad decision to get one, incase i grow or something, and also I have very little fat and only way 98 pounds. any advice? thankyou.

Well girls and boys I recently got a lower back tattoo to celebrate my 50th.  It was something I always wanted to do.  At my age, the question of permancy certainly was not an issue.  Just as most of you mention, it really did hurt like hell and at times I had to literally bear down and hold my breath to get through it.  The tattoo artist referred to me as "one tough lady." It took exactly an hour (no stops) and the tattoo runs across my lower back.  The part that hurt the most was the outline, particularly around the love handles.  The shading in was a piece of cake compared to the outline.  I am 4 feet 10 inches and weigh 106 lbs, so I am not very big.  Judging from the feedback on the other responses, most people agree that lower back tattoos are indeed painful.  I went back two days later and got a pair of running shoes tattooed on my shoulder blade.  I'm a marathoner, so it was an appropriate choice.  Not much pain there.  The artist commented that "he had created a monster."  Yes, tattoos really are addicting. I have in mind to get a couple more.

Tattoos hurt like hell. I got my first on on my lower back and i passed out and throw up and that was just the first sitting. They were only able to have the outline. So a week later I went back for more of the worst pain I have ever had. I would rather have 20 more kids then get another tattoo. But I have to finish... I didn't pass out or throw up the second time put I was close a couple times and had to have him stop. I guess you would say that I can NOT handle pain. Even knowing I had a child with no medican and I was just fine. I would recommend that you get a little one first. To  see how much pain you can handle  before you get one across the whole lower back. And yes the spine hurts the most....

The spine is the killer and your body jolts.  I am very slim with not much fat.  They will tell you not to move.  It is normal for the spine to react this way.  Like tapping your knee with a hammer and it jolts.   Near the love handles(the more fleshy area) is bothersome too.  Just focus in on something...like a picture on the wall.  Mine to almost 2 hours.  I am not going to sweet coat this for the teenagers...some spots are tender while getting them done on the back.  I got my belly button done awhile ago and the pain is up there with that.  Just be sure to follow the artists instructions on care.  Be also cautious of red pigment as it can cause a allergic reaction

I have 3 tattoos. Two on my ankle and one on my lower Back. I just got the one on my lower back about 3 weeks ago. I have to say it HURT A LOT!!! It hurt a lot more than my ankles did. I thought it would hurt less than my ankles did, so I wasn't expecting so much pain. Anyway, It hurt the most on the sides. I got a butterfly with twirly lines coming out the sides. The middle didn't hurt half as bad. But when the sides were getting done, I could feel it through my legs. Must have been the nerves. It was definitly worth it though, so for anyone who is scared about the pain, it's nothing you cant get through, so go for it.

yes it hurts like hell! dont get confused people who are like blah blah the tat on my arm was nothing...my bro has on arms and leg and describes them having felt like scratching my back was NOT like this its feels like a butning knife cutting into you but they did stop every now and then to spray with cold water or watever it was . AHHH so nice. im not trying to scare you just prepare you because i went into after having tongue peirced previously wich people said would hurt and it didnt really hurt at all so come the tattoo i thought it wouldnt be to bad but it was! lower back is worse esp if like me you have it ded on your spine! there are so many nerves my back was seriously twitching i couldnt help it . i didnt cry though woo! just alot of teethe gritting , gripping the chair and making grrrrr noised through clenched teeth. iv even spoke to some women who said it hurt more than when they had a baby, so you do the maths!!! yes it hurts..was it worth it?..hell yeah!

well I had a lower back tattoo 2 days ago, and it def. hurts... i did not cry but i was about to, i am 17 and i weigh 120 pounds... we (i mean girls) tend to accumulate fat in our lower back sides,and thats why it usually hurts more, but also my tattoo was fairly big... it took the guy 4 hours and a half to get it done... and mine had a lot of shadings and its fully colored.... i had 4 hors of torture.. but it was worth it.. because well i drew my tattoo i designed it and i wanted it in my skin for the rest of my life.. marking a stage i went through in life.. and well i went to the best place here in Ecuador and i got it done just as i wanted i am very happy with it and I'm taking care of myself as i don't want it to be sore.... your muscles hurt a lot the next few days.. i hope this pain stops soon because i feel as if i ran a marathon or something.... but the tattoo doesn't itch at all or hurt.. just the muscles because of the contractions produces by the reaction of the nerves on the body when the needles touch your skin..... it hurts but its def. a pleasurable result!!!! i would never regret it!!! go for it!! its worth the pain!!!!

Everybody has a different threshhold of pain.  The main thing about tattoos and how painfull they are, is mostly based on placement.  A tattoo on the arm is pretty much the least painfull, unlike a design done on the ribcage, or sternum.  Always be sure to tell your tattooist about any physical problems you may have, as this will help the outcome of your tattoo.  The best thing to do to find a unique design is to find something you like and take it to your tattooist and if he or she is good, they will be able to trick the design out, giving you a unique tattoo that no one has.  The thing is to let you tattooist know you want in order to alter the design you have provided.

I got a new tattoo on my lower back! I mean on my butt cheeks. it was "YOUR NAME". Yeah I got your name on my ass.. By the way it hurts and i cried like a little salamander. to anyone who is still curious about getting a tattoo.. well, try to poke your back with a needle. If it hurt just go and buy some permanent marker. just keep on doing it every time it starts to fade.

im 16 and i have 2 tatts. one on my left bicep and the other on my right shoulder. i got my first one at 14 and yes both of them hurted. do not believe anyone who tells u that it doesnt hurt, c'mon now its a needle going into ur skin real fast but the pain only lasts for a few days. the color doesn't really hurt as much and if you are my age trying 2 get one, choose wisely because it aint comin off and the removal surgery can be atleast 1,000$ depending on the size of ur tattoo. drinkin or smokin b4 u get it will only make u bleed more.

anyone who says that tattoo's don't hurt are lying, ive been tattooing now for over 20 years and about 0.001% of the people didn't appear to be in pain, nearly my whole body is covered (except my hands and head) and every one of them hurt, some more than others. the pain is bearable though. Most painful places are your back, chest, and under you upper arm.
Your foot is the most painful by far. For someone with a small 1 hour tattoo to say it doesn't hurt does not count. It still hurts but a proper tattoo means sitting their for a few hours.

Trust me when i say this for people looking to get inked, it hurts, but is bearable and also the greatest relief when over. Don't drink before hand and do not take paracetomol or any other painkillers, they only thin your blood and will make you bleed.

Best of luck to all those thinking of getting a tat done, you will be ok, just take deep breaths and you won't pass out

I just had my first tattoo done a couple of days ago.  I had a memorial tattoo on my right arm.  It does hurt the most when they do the outlining.  Do expect it to hurt no matter what or where you get it at.  But it is well worth it when it is finished.  I love my tattoo.  I had a heart with wings and halo with my husband's name on the heart in memory of my husband.

That was on my arm. The 2nd one was on my chest & more detailed & only stung a little when it hit one of my ribs. I plan on getting many more all over my body.

I wouldnt say a back tattoo hurts more then getting your hip bone done. I got my first tattoo on my lower back and once it got numb it didnt hurt all that much anymore, BUT when i got it touched up thats when it hurt like hell cuz of them tatooing on scar tissue. So yes it does hurt like hell the 2nd time around but not so much the 1st time.

I really dont think getting a tattoo hurts it depends on where you do it and if you can handle a little stinging dont be afraid !!!

It doesn't hurt that bad!! It's far more annoying than anything else. I got my nose pierced about 6 months after getting my tattoo on my back, and that hurt WAY more. It just feels like little pinches.

Im covered in tattoo's and whoever says they dont hurt is full of bull!! All they're trying to do is act big and brave!! Tattoo pain is uncomfortable but it's a bearable pain but every single person is different amd each and every one of us has a different pain barrier so if youre worried they're gonna hurt, dont get one. It should be the actual tattoo youre getting (colour, size etc) that matters, and not how much it hurts!!

I am 15 turning 16 in July. i got my first tattoo when i was 14 at a party a town away. and no i was not drunk yet. one this is if you do not want to bleed as much, do not drink. as you know blood thins your blood. i just have a butterfly near my neck and i have a tribal Celtic shamrock on my lower back. once i turn 16 i am getting many more. once you get one you can not stop. they are very addicting. my personal option is that it felt pretty good. but then again i like pain. so yes i agree, if you are not good with pain. either do not get one, or wait until  your passed out. :p

I got a lower back tattoo today, my third tat. I don't know what was worse sitting on a gourney leaning forward and being still the entire time with only one break or having the tattoo done itself.  This one hurt the worst out of my three.  Mine took over 3 hours and it was agony the entire time.  The outline was very painful, and the shading was painful, but not as bad.  The sides were worse for me than the spine area where I had a large, red heart done.  I did make it through the pain, just kept on thinking of the outcome, how beautiful it will look.  I am so glad I did it and absolutley love it, the pain is over and I will enjoy it for the rest of my life.

Go to deviantart.com.  That's where I got my tribal lower back tat design.  Always ask the artist first though.  But you'll get something original and cool looking.  Really good tribal back tats.  Check it out!
