Hey! Beware of the first tattoo...it will not be your last, I'm sure! Haha.
I don't have any wrist tattoos, but I have a bunch of other ones, and I just wanted to say that you'll do fine! They're not nearly as bad as people think..and i HATE needles. Getting blood work done, IV's, etc...I'll take a tattoo for 6 hours over that any day! And I have the tops of my feet and under my arm done (said to be 2 of the more painful body parts) so that says a lot!

I have a half sleeve on one arm starting at my wrist and another tattoo on my other wrist. I don't think they hurt at all, to me it's just a different, unique feeling, not horribly painful. I also have one on the inside of my ankle/foot and on the back of my neck, both not bad. It will be over before you know it and like another posted stated, it can be addicting! My sleeve started as a wrist tattoo!

From what I've read it's like 50/50 on the people who think it hurts bad and the people who think it's not that bad. I had a dream last night I was getting it done and I head Christopher Titus yelling 'don't be such a wussy' haha. I am really excited about it now after doing research =)

I have 12 tattoos, and yes, one on my wrist. It was one of the least-painful, IMHO.

Yes, I'd say tatts are addictive. I got my first one at 42; I'm 48 now & have 12. What does that tell ya?

I just have two on my back. I chose that because I couldn't see them being done and I really think it would drive me crazy being able to see the tattoos all the time. In fact, I'm still a little surprised everytime I catch sight of one in the mirror. Getting them done was too bad. What always did me in was cleaning them the morning after. For some reason I could handle every other cleaning except that one.

Good luck and I would love to see a pic afterwards!

If you want something bad enough the little bit of pain won´t matter. I have 4 (neck, butt, ankle and from armpit to butt down my rib cage, that hurt the most). I agree that once you have one, you will want more. Good Luck!

I have three & one is on my right wrist.
It was honestly the least painful for me.
Perhaps because it means more to me than the others, I couldn't tell you.
I want the other two removed as I got them when I was younger & didn't put much thought into them. Bleh.
I love tattoos though. Please post a picture when it's finished.

Just remember to eat before you go. The only bad experience I've had was when I didn't eat anything and I got light headed and it hurt a lot more than it needed to. I've had about 27 hours worth of work done and I only had to make the mistake of not eating anything once.

I have my 2 kids names-first and middle-on my wrists that I got for my 30th a couple months ago. Honestly, I thought it was going to hurt, but it didn't for me. I have two other ones (shoulder blade and ankle) that I had done in my teens that didn't really hurt either. It's just feels like someone scratching sunburn before it numbs. You'll do fine

I have a wrist tattoo that was totally bearable. It felt about the same as my ankle (which didn't bother me much at all) and hurt much less than the side of my foot, which was still completely tolerable but did have me gritting my teeth. On the other hand, my best friend almost passed out getting her wrist done. I think it really all just depends on you and your tolerance.

Cute idea, though! I'm sure you'll love it

I have 3 but I regret getting the "tramp" stamp in 2007. It's huge. Oh well...can't do anything about it.
