So I’m getting my first tattoo next month and I’m scared shitless. I’m getting a butterfly with the words be strong on the inside of my left wrist, how bad is this going to hurt? And the veins on my wrist are very visible and (don’t judge) but I also used to cut myself this tattoo is supposed to be a reminder that I need to stay strong.

    wrists and ankles are supposed to hurt the worst, im getting one on my wrist saturday, but alot of people told me they hurt like hell when it really didnt hurt when i got my first tattoo, i was scared shitless as well lol, but once ur in the chair and they get started, u can listen to music or look around at different objects to take your mind off, or bring a friend to talk to. its not nearly as bad as some people say. :)

    Wrists hurt since there are so many nerves there. Luckily the bones in your wrist are a little more spaced out, the pain from hitting bone shouldn’t be that bad.

    A wrist tattoo is going to make getting a job harder. You’re also going to get very tired of having to wear long sleeves to work every day.
