What are the best places to get a tattoo (from least to most painful)?
I really want to get a tattoo, but I have a VERY low tolerance for pain. Are there any good and (somewhat) painless places, or should I just stop thinking about it before I go and regret it?
I only know some of the worst. Do not get a tattoo on bone. And do not get one on your foot. Ouch. My first was on my hip and it drove me insane (mainly because the hand machine sounded like the drill at the dentists office and I have a phobia about those). The second time I did it at home and was able to set my own pace which helped a lot. Since you do not like pain, I don't suggest a tattoo.

Almost everyone I have talked to has said the same. One girl actually suggested that I think about getting it on my breast. She said that they're aren't any nerve endings except for near the nipple and the upper chest. Any insight to this?
No idea. But that would be good to research. Try gently poking yourself with a needle to see if you can feel it. Or just ask someone who has a tattoo there. Good luck with your tattoo!
Similarly, I can only say that I have wrists on both tattoos, and one on my shoulder blade. All three were excruciating.
As Iburmaster said, in addition to bones (and I've also heard the tops of your feet hurt very much), try to avoid any prominent veins. It's a little scary watching a tattoo gun go over such a sensitive area. Friends of mine have gotten tattoos on their lower backs and rib cages, and they've said those were very painful. I've heard getting tattoos on a fleshy part (for instance, your bicep) doesn't hurt as much.
However, I also thought I had a really low tolerance for pain, but I sat through all three without breaks (admittedly, they are only small or medium sized). If you're considering a smaller tattoo, it may be something you can work through. The outcome is definitely worth it.
I'm sorry to say, I think there's pain involved anywhere you get a tattoo. I have one on my lower abdomen, above my left hip. Very painful and it was rather small. I have a large one on my back - I can't say that one was AS painful, but it was a different kind of pain. Keep in mind, I have a high tolerance for pain. The larger one felt more like a burning-type pain. I wish I could tell you a body region that would be the least painful, but I haven't heard of any. Sorry. Maybe go to a reputable tattoo parlor and talk to them. Sometimes when you know exactly what's involved and listen to their suggestions, taking the unknown out of the situation makes it easier to bear.
I have several tats and the most uncomfortable ones were the top of my foot and my wedding band. The upper arm is nothing! I barely felt it. The back is also pretty easy. My ankle one was uncomfortable but mainly because it kept hitting a nerve that made my leg jump. Really quite often it is made out to be a lot more than it actually is. The word pain is so subjective. I've had headaches worse than some of my tats. In my opinion tattoos are a form of art and if that type of art is something you are interested in I would suggest going to a tattoo shop and watching people get work done. Most artists are okay with it.
The parts that are bonier like your foot will hurt much more then if you get it in a more fattier place it wont hurt as much but any tattoo you get will hurt it just depends on you and I suggest go with a professional that's been doing if for a long time because they know what works and how deep to do it, if they do it too deep it will hurt and not look to good in the long run but if they do it to soft then you'll have to keep getting it touched up more then usual.

I desperately want this one tattoo, but I have a serious fear of needles..and the pain. I want it on my left rib cage...I'm a skinny girl, they show, and tattooing on bone I imagine can't be pleasant. I was wondering..if I could go in for the actual tattoo appointment maybee after a few drinks..or...
