During the tattoo process, there will be a feeling of scratching to the sunburnt skin. The degree of tattoo pain is something most people can tolerate! Everyone will react differently to the feeling of the tattoo, and the degree of pain will vary depending on the location of the tattoo.
Sensitive parts of the body or areas with less subcutaneous fat have the opportunity to feel greater pain. Our physical health, different skin conditions, and different resting states can also affect pain. But it is definitely not the severity of pain as imagined.
When tattooing, the brain secretes endorphins, which can also help relieve pain. Endorphins are a neurotransmitter that is secreted by the peripheral system of the brain and is related to emotional control. When we feel pain, the concentration of endorphins in the brain increases, which helps reduce pain and anesthetize neurotransmitters. The concentration of endorphins also increases when you are stressed, which may help relieve tension. It is often heard that tattoos are addictive, and it is indeed the effect of endorphin.
