      You know he is just pandering to women right? I've never seen a woman not crying and start shaking uncontrollably while getting a tattoo. Women like to say things like "you couldn't handle child birth", well neither could you. That's why you got that shot in your spine so you can't feel anything.

      i experienced the same but in a different way. We were broke and didn't have money to go to the hospital so every minor pain I felt is just normal so I can't really differentiate wants mild pain and normal pain. I think I've only been to the hospital for myself like 5 times? and I've lived for a long time

      Just found the one obgyn yesterday in my whole life who not only listened when I said I was in pain but fully stopped, took a break and told me some breathing exercises to do so it wouldn’t hurt one bit. I freaking love her. For the first time I didn’t leave an appointment on wobbly legs 🎉 The rest all told me its NORMAL while I was screaming 🙄All women who should know better

      Ikr. Imagine someone kicking you in the nuts for a week each month and your reaction is to show no discomfort other than to ask someone for ice cream or chocolate. And that's not by choice, it's because the pain is mandatory and the culture doesn't allow for complaint, or even loss of composure, or even talking about it at all. That said, if you know someone who gets painful periods, it may be common but it's not actually normal. They should see a doctor who is prepared to take them seriously. It can be caused by various medical problems.

    When I was getting my first tattoo done I started feeling lightheaded and woozy (I didn't have a chance to eat before going) and the guys in the shop noticed right away and got me all set up with cold towels, water, crackers, and a fan. One of them said "you don't have to prove that you can handle it, we all already know women sit better."
    And I promised next time I'd come well fed and speak up if something was wrong. It's been almost seven years and they're still my go-to shop.

    This is 100% accurate. My friend and I got matching tattoos on the inside of our ankle. He went first and no joke, he was moaning, at some point almost screaming, his eyes were watering and he was squeezing my hand so tight that it felt like he was going to break my hand. He was displaying that he was in so much pain that I almost backed out. I am glad I didn’t bc it hurt but kinda just felt like a cat was scratching me. It definitely didn’t hurt near as bad as he made it seem.

    My first tattoo was on my collarbone which was fine but what scared me was that I realized he was going to have to touch my breasts with his arm. He was super respectful but I kept holding my breath so my chest wouldn't rise and brush against him. Spent the whole time worried about that while everyone walking by was telling me how painful my collarbone was supposed to be.

    I recently got my first tattoo and I asked my tattoo artist the same thing and he gave me the same answer. I asked because he told me I was his second first timer of the day and the guy before me had been shaking the whole time and almost passed out.
    I sat still through the tattoo and the pain wasn’t bad at all. Though I did feel faint close to the end due to my low blood pressure and it being a hot day. But my artist was so nice and kept me in conversation almost the whole time.

    I’m a tattoo artist and I had two clients come in yesterday, a man who was getting one tattoo and got up every 5 minutes because he needed a break, and a woman who sat there for the entire session getting 3 different tattoos without even complaining once. Women really just have a crazy pain tolerance

  • PhoenixGoneDown/SekseeDragoness

    This is exactly why, when I went into a shop to ask about getting my kids names put on my arms and the artist told me he'd have to do it in two sittings and that I should get them smaller coz I wouldn't be able to handle the pain, I walked out of that shop and went elsewhere.
    The names are from wrist to elbow and I did them both in one sitting without any issues.
    To give the other artist benefit of the doubt, these were my first visible tattoos so maybe he was just trying to discourage me coz he thought I'd regret it, but I had made up my mind and its not like my kids will ever stop being my kids!

      Just an urban legend. Studies show women feel pain more intensely than men and have a lower threshold. Not trying to devalue women or invalidate the pain they go through, especially with being expected to be 100% when menstruating. It's not a race or anything, women and men have their fair share of emotional and physical burden.

      @C Wheels feeling more intensely and handling it better doesn’t mean the same thing. Women handle pain better than men because for some of us we have a week where we are in pain for a good amount of the day. Men do not experience this AT ALL. All 4 weeks in a month you have 0 pain as a male. Different doesn’t mean weaker.

    Considering I've thought that light taps, nudges, and touches feeling like they could bruise me everywhere were normal for the last several years up, plus awful period pains and chronic migraines, so my tattoo was nothing. The only problem was that I had no idea I was supposed to tip, I was a new adult at the time and hadn't looked into it (nobody I knew had tattoos, my parents were super strict and threatened to kick me out if I got one, so I was hiding it), and i still feel super bad about it and have no idea how to get in touch with that artist from back then 😭

      @jamal jamal Okay I did.
      To quote Professor Jennifer Graham, Biobehavioral Health, Penn State, "Overall, I think it's important to know that men and women respond similarly to pain at a biological level."
      If anything, the only studies I've seen seem to indicate that women feel pain more intensely, but not that they react to it more.
      So if women feel pain more intensely, but generally tend to squirm less and be less reactive while getting tattooed, what does that say about men's pain tolerance?
      I have a really high pain tolerance because I have EDS. It's not that I feel less pain than other people, but I just tolerate it better. Because I'm in pain 24/7, I've just gotten used to it.

    I got a tattoo at the same time as my dad, who had never been to a tattoo appointment before that. He cried and was shaking the whole time and afterwards said he “knows what child birth is like now” and then I got my tattoo and didn’t even really feel it, just chatted with the artist the whole time. We both got the same tattoo on our upper arm in the same spot. He’s been way more symptomatic of pregnancy, child birth, menstrual pain, and so on since then. 😂

      I had my picture in the paper after winning a jujitsu tournament when I was young. People in town thought it was hilarious that a tiny red head girl had this kid twice her size pinned. Though I have not done it for a while that will always be a sense of pride for me and has left me with valuable skills that I have sadly had to use in life

    My back was done by a friend who had recently been paroled. As it turns out, I was the first woman he had ever worked on. I read magazines, watched tv, and chatted. He thought it was just me. He has had murderers and cutthroats of the worst kind, and told me that they whine, bitch, cuss and squirm. He told me hands down he'd rather work on women. Once they decide they want it, they keep still and don't complain. Never asked any other tattooists that question.

      I only remember being in pain for 2 parts of my tatoo. The first was near my nipple it made my armpit hurt, which was more weird than anything else. Then the part that I had an issue with was whenever ink was put in against my collarbone. That felt like a hot knife where everything else was mildly annoying.

      Im not a female so i cant say for sure but im pretty sure you dont remember it as clearly as you think. I think it was proven that women forget how severe the childbirth pain is (to an extent ofc, youll remember it being painful but youll remember it being less painful than it actually was) so theyll have another kid instead of being like "im not going through that pain again"

      @Georgino Ventriloquo from what I have been told. During childbirth specifically women produce a ton of hormones that specifically make them more likely to remember giving birth as less traumatic/painful than it was at the time. Which seems kinda mean from evolution.

    True. My husband had a really hard time choosing his tattoo, I had a cool design. He didn’t tip more than 20 bucks, I tipped 50. We had the same placement on our bicep. He was shaking and grunting with pain but it honestly wasn’t bad for me. Felt like my forearm tattoo. I also think it could’ve been because he had more muscle but when I brought that up to my artist he said it wasn’t that since we were both in the same position/not flexing. Mens pain tolerance is kind of funny tbh.

    I got my first and only (so far) tattoo on my ribs, the tattoo artist gave me a quote and said it should last 30 to 45 minutes.

It ended up lasting 20 minutes and she made me pay less than announced because it was so quick.

      Got my first one in January! Five guys working that shop, and every single one of them said women typically sit better.
      Legitimately, my 15 pound cat making biscuits on my arm/shoulder hurt more, and he did that the very next morning, too, so I had a quality comparison XD and I've definitely had waaay worse uterine cramps. What finally got my arse on the table, though, was getting stitches with the lidocaine having worn off before they started. I figured it couldn't be any worse than that, and definitely was mild af. Even the healing wasn't painful at all. And I did my super feckin' scrawny ankle. (I still had anxiety, but that's expected for me and I know I'll have it for every tattoo ever 😂) and while I didn't get a super big piece, it's still wraps around my ankle and it's very detailed. Took about 1.5 hrs. My leg fell asleep 🤣
      After that, my mom decided she'd get her first one. She got her upper thigh/hip, and except for where it got close to bone she didn't feel much, and she agreed on the cat scratch feeling.
      I hope your experience is a great one!!! If you're looking for any tips, I have a few I've always thought of, but you could also very well be sure on everything and just have some anxiety (I completely understand that one! I was sooo ready but I still anxiety-chilled in my car for a couple of hours before finally going in. (It was a Friday the 13th, so there was a wait-list, but they did actual proper tattoos and flash for a special, not those tiny 15 minute ones that you can't change anything on.)) So I'll leave it at that otherwise 😂

    I had my first tattoo as a sternum/rib/underboob tattoo and I was estimated 6 hours but got it done in 3 with no breaks. It wasn’t even bad. People told me it was a painful spot and that it would be horrible for a first tattoo and to just do my arm or something so I know what I’m getting myself into. I was pretty head strong on the area since it was more about increasing my self love and body image (100% worked btw) and my tattoo artist made me so comfortable and kept checking that I was okay and reminding me to tell him to stop if I needed him to. Couldn’t be happier and I can’t wait to be a disappointment to my grandparents when I start getting tattoos in visible areas 🥰

      For the two replies: women have on average higher pain tolerances
      Because of periods
      In fact, I have been punched in the face while on my period and laughed in the dudes face and told him my cramps hit harder
      I also have PCOS (1 in 10 women do, 2 in 10 women have severe cramping) so my cramps feel like a donkey kicking me in the stomach for 6 hours straight, including while I work and have to keep a pleasant smile on my face.
      ADHD people also feel pain differently than neurotypicals and a lot of them get tattoos and it doesnt hurt as bad for them.
      Pain tolerance is very much based on the amount of pain you handle in everyday life, not just big events. Women handle a decent amount of pain for 3-7 days every month and are told to never show it or squirm, so we are good at masking and dealing with it. That it.

      @Moraca101 and yet ive seen plenty of Women that started to cry the moment they had the slightest cut in their finger lol
      so i pretty much have to understand your comment more or less the way of: not evry women has such a high pain tolerance, but there are women that do and those that do have, go through alot of pain in their evryday life.
      which simply doesnt make a women have a higher pain tolerance a standart like alot of people have been saying quite alot, its still depending on the women overall.

    • Moraca101
      Moraca101 Před měsícem +168

      @haxkztasy here's the in-depth explanation: men become more stressed by remembered pain than women.
      And men tense more when preparing for pain, which can worsen pain and make them jumpy. Bad sitting for a tattoo
      Women go through pain regularly and are expected to even smile through it. If you saw a girl cry over a small cut, she may have been emotionally elevated or was seeking empathy, which I would assume about ANY adult who cries over a small cut.
      But women have been found to handle pain better, especially if theyve already felt it. Women give birth with less pain when they are on their second or more child, they learn how to breath calmly through more extreme period pains, and they even respond to wounds better if theyve already experienced them. That makes for the best canvas. Calm, breathing through it, relaxed body, etc.
      So while men can handle a good bit of pain before tapping out, women will handle it longer the more they repeat it. Thus the idea of women handle pain better. The real question is whether its because of biology or are men just bad at coping skills?

    Medically we are ignored. Typically we are ignored at home because we are seen as more "independent" aka born homemakers. We are constantly accused of faking pain. Told to work through pain. Long before we legally can get tattoos we are conditioned to ignore pain. Idk why we tip better though maybe it has to do with empathy. But generally that's why we sit better. That doesn't mean there aren't badass men who can sit great for a neck tattoo. It just means there's a lot less of them.

      Women have a greater nerve density which causes them to feel more pain than men. Also if a pressure stimulus is applied to the body and gradually increased, a woman would be more likely to report pain sooner (lower pain threshold) and tolerate less pressure (lower pain tolerance) than a man.

    Women do typically handle pain better, so you'd think that if a woman was telling you she's in excruciating pain you'd listen to her...

    I was genuinely surprised at how mild my tattoos were. Like a TENS unit turned to, like, 2 or 3. The worst part was when the tickling sensation would make me want to scratch mid-sitting. 😂 Can't wait for the future tattoos

    I have a large tattoo across the front of my neck that took 7 hours and the only thing I took breaks for was 2 cigarettes. And similarly, I have a tattoo across my left rib cage extending from the hip bone up to underneath the armpit. And for that one I only took breaks for cigarettes. I didn't fidget, I didn't complain. I didn't ask to stop every half hour. I marched right through both of them. So as a woman I agree with this public service announcement.

      Childbirth pumps loads of hormones into your body to make the pain better though

      Women have a greater nerve density which causes them to feel more pain than men. Also if a pressure stimulus is applied to the body and gradually increased, a woman would be more likely to report pain sooner (lower pain threshold) and tolerate less pressure (lower pain tolerance) than a man.

    Got a tattoo with my little brother when he turned 18, my pain tolerance is a complete hit or miss. But I sat there laughing cause it tickled and my brother cried like a baby. This video reminded of that greatly!

    Even without periods training us to handle more pain, we're routinely ignored and told to suck it up when in tremendous pain/discomfort and taught not to make our problems everyone else's problems. Add my chronic pain condition on top and yeah, I'm both the ideal patient and tattoo client.
    edit: lmao at the men crying in the comments even though I literally never mentioned them 💀 y'all need hobbies or real problems if you're this upset hearing women talk about our issues 😂

      Not saying your wrong but men are also told to deal with pain solely because we're men and "we can handle it" so it goes both ways lol

      You think you're told to suck it up😂 what a joke. My friend snapped his collar bone in half at practice and he was told to suck it up and wait the hour until your mom gets to practice.

    We face a similar sharp pain every month. So a needle isnt bad. I fell asleep during my last rib tatt though😂 i was listening to gospel and was so relaxed, one tatt took 4 hours and I wasnt told that I shouldve split it into two sections until it was done. That sht hurt! Got to a point I was cussing and even asked for a lil numbing spray! Placement and detail matters

    As a woman, I feel a sense of social pressure to sit "well". I can be in a lot of pain, but I do my darnest not to move until it gets to a point where it is involuntary (I have a half sleeve but the worse experience I had with twitching is my small ankle tattoo for some reason).

    • VictoriaGibby

      @Veanell yeah I know, that's why I mentioned it as the worst involuntary movement I've had while getting a tattoo

    • Kharn Sagara
      Kharn Sagara Před 20 dny

      Idk where that social pressure is coming from but If anything tattoo artists want EVERYBODY to sit still because they're obviously working on your tattoo, man or woman

    • VictoriaGibby
      VictoriaGibby Před 20 dny +5

      @Kharn Sagara to clarify- no pressure from the tattoo artists! I've only had great supportive artists, who ask of clients to be as still as possible but understand involuntary movements happen!
      Social pressure comes from the expectation that women are "weaker" than men and that we can't handle pain, I've often felt pressure to sit well to not fall into this stereotype.

    When I went to get my tattoo, (which covers half of my upper back and goes down to my side) with a few of my guy friends of mine, my friends who has tattoos kept telling me I would need to do it in sessions... It took 5 hours and it was completed in one session. I honestly at times was almost laughing from the vibrations so close to my stomach area. That alone freaked the guys out lmao if this was hundreds of years ago they would of thought I was a witch hahaha I had already gone through having a child without and epidural, which took around 7 hours. I figured a tattoo was easy peasy and well it was lol I now have a lot more and those friends of mine half like 1 or 3 more lmao idk why people always think women are so weak 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ We gotta deal with so much every single month for a week long. A tattoo at least we get a cool personal piece of art out of it 😂
