Tattoos are a form of self-expression that allows people to turn their physical body into an art gallery with an exceptional piece of design. Marking the body offers a new dimension to self-love, making a person feel unique but at the same time, tattoos hurt! Getting a new tattoo is only the first step and tattoo aftercare is very important so that the tattoo will heal quickly, avoid infection and prevent fading from the skin. Pain relief for tattoos can be helpful in preventing itching, scar tissue formation, clogging of the pore, etc. Negligence in taking care of your new tattoo may result in an infection that makes the skin warm, painful, and inflamed. If this is your first time getting tattooed, you may not be aware that certain factors affect the amount of tattoo pain that will be experienced during the tattoo process and how your immune system will react. Your pain tolerance may be lower or higher than others, which can affect the level of pain felt during a tattoo session. Certain areas of the body that have less nerve endings such as the outer shoulder, calf, outer arm and buttocks also can be a factor. It is also a good idea not to take any aspirin or prescriptions that thins your blood before getting a tattoo as it will take longer to heal.
The tattoo process works by tattoo artists using an electric powered tattoo machine that uses needles to puncture the skin hundreds of times a minute with ink. Usually anything using a needle in the process will be painful and getting tattooed is no exception. This process can be made less painful by taking certain precautionary measures to make the tattoo session hurt less. When you get a tattoo, numbing cream such as lidocaine can be applied a length of time before the tattoo artist begins the session. The first 24 hours after getting a tattoo, pain relieving soap can not only help to reduce the feeling of tattoo pain, but also keep the area clean. The application of the tattoo artist can also determine the amount of pain as some are more heavy handed than others. It is also a good idea to wear loose clothes during application to avoid rubbing against the area. Though getting a tattoo may be the most painful part, the healing process can be painful as well.
