I’m planning on getting a tattoo there, but I’d like to know what the pain level is. And don’t give me any "Don’t get a tattoo cause when your 80 years old you’ll die hating yourself" I have a high pain tolerance, and telling me the amount of pain will not stop me from getting the tattoo. I’m just curious.

    The more bony the area, the more pain you’ll have. And like the guy before said, if its in black, it will hurt less than in color. But it will hurt in that area none the less

    Anything to do with between your shoulders hurts really bad especially the closer you get to your spine. I even had allergy test done on my back and that hurt like a mother when they got closer to my spine.

    It really depends on how complicated a design.

    If it is just and outline or black? It will feel similar to fine sandpaper being lightly brushed over and over in the same spot.

    Lots of color and shading? Its gonna be fine sandpaper rubbed in the same spot with the same force you use to wash your hands when they are really dirty.

    I just recently got a tattoo in the center of my back and yes it does hurt. It feel worst than sandpaper rubbing against your back. It almost felt like a razor blade being ran down your back. My tattoo artsit said I was doing fine by not flitching when she was doing the tattoo but I was sweating really bad because at times the pain was unbearable. The outline and shadnig both hurt especially in the spin area..
