you’ve probably answered often before – but what is the best place to work on a tattoo for you – and what is (in theory) the best (read: least painful) for the recipient?
I prefer working on everything from the thighs down to feet, the arms, and the upper and mid back. I am not a fan of the lower back (a.k.a., tramp stamp), ribs, chest, or neck.
As far as least painful place for the client? That is truly relative. What location hurts one person won’t necessarily hurt the next. Add to that the fact that every artist has a different “touch”. Some are light handed and some are heavy handed. The heavier the hand, the more painful the tattoo session can be.
All that said, a lot of people don’t find the outside of the upper arm, side of the thigh, or mid-calf that bad.
Until next time...
