Reasons To Get A BFF Tattoo
Many people choose to get best friend tattoos because they are interested in showing their dedication and support to a person that has always been there for them and that they feel shares a close bond. There are some people who are fearful that a tattoo will be extremely painful and that they will not be able to withstand the pain. They are scared that they will start to get the tattoo and then have only half of it completed for the rest of their life and that it will look silly. This does not have to be the case at all.
Getting best friend tattoos is not as painful as many people think. The location for the tattoo makes a huge difference in the amount of pain you feel. There are some people who have higher tolerances for pain than others. If you know that you do not have a high tolerance for pain you may not want to get your best friend tattoos on the top of your feet, shoulder blade or front of your calf. These areas do not have a lot of “meat” which makes them a painful place to get a tattoo. If you have never gotten a tattoo before and are interested in getting best friend tattoos you may want to get them on your thigh, upper arm or lower back. These locations tend to be less sensitive to pain and will allow you to have a higher threshold for pain than the other, more tender areas.
If you are still nervous about getting your best friend tattoos you should talk with your tattoo artist. Ask them if they will tattoo you without any ink in the needle. This will allow you to feel what it would feel like to get the tattoo without actually putting any of the ink into your skin. Most tattoo artists want you to be happy with the finished product and if you are moving around and jumping in pain, it will be hard for them to give you a good tattoo. Finding out what it will feel like will allow you to know if you can withstand the pain and get awesome best friend tattoos.
