too many tats to count...many have merged into one so its really hard to count anyways
In regards to pain, there are areas that are tolerable, and areas that are tolerable if you're really tough...
Everyones got their limits I think. The size of the tattoo or more so the amount of time you're willing to sit through it will also affect your tolerance. I've sat through 5 hours at most, at which point I started to feel light headed and my nerves were RAW!!!! You can spend a half hour getting tattooed in a sensitive area and cope well or a longer time frame in a not-so tender area and cope at the same level. There are too many variables to nail it on the head. I had my elbow tattooed but before-hand spoke to a woman who had hers done as well. This lady, picture it if you may, was a heavily tattooed bartender who was quite rowdy and tough in nature. She told me her elbow tattoos almost broke her. Well, you could imagine I was not too excited about getting mine done with this knowledge and was greeted by my artist with a "oooh, we're doing the elbow today eh? ouch!" I was so pumped with adrenaline and expecting the worst only to find out that it was probably one of the least painful tatoos I ever got.
Everyone is different in terms of what their body can handle and how their nerves are affected. I had the side of my neck tattood and it felt as if someone was tickling me with a feather. The artist was very annoyed cause I kept giggling and moving around.
On the other hand my calves were agonizing to have tattooed. It felt like a hot knife cutting in to my flesh! yikes!!!
