How Badly Do They Hurt?

Hands might be some of the most tender places to get tattooed, considering how bony they are. You definitely have some more tender skin in other places on your body, but very few have such soft skin as well as bony areas.

As an avid hand tattoo recipient, I will say that the fingers are an easy one to get done, especially considering that they are so small, it goes by so fast!

It’s thin skin pretty directly on a bone, but it’s nothing you can’t handle… Promise!

Even if you have a low pain tolerance like I do, you’ll be okay. This is different for everybody, but I don’t have the highest pain tolerance and I can sit through the 10 minutes of stinging for these tattoos.

Heart finger tattoos are some of the easiest pieces you can get while you’re finishing up filling space across your hands. Or it is an easy one to get at the beginning of this journey. Either way, it’s a perfect tattoo for anywhere you are in your tattoo adventure.

If you’re not too sure about which style and exact placement on your finger, no stress. I love collaborating with my artist about what questions I might have as well as ideas that I have that need to be developed and finalized.

That way, it’s a little bit his or her artwork too, rather than a photo of someone else’s work.

Side of your finger or top of your finger, broken heart or matching with your partner, this is the sweetest next tattoo for you, I can just feel it.
