Pick Your Tattoo Placement by the Potential Pain

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 12:00 PM

Now, I'm too broke and too much of a chicken to go through with any sort of body modifications (not to mention that my only tattoo ideas are related either to video games or professional sports teams,) so there's no chance I'm getting any "work" done any time soon.

But that doesn't stop me from dreaming — or wondering how much more or less a shoulder tattoo would hurt compared to a Tyson-esque face tattoo.

Well, thanks to the folks at, who were kind enough to put together a list of the most- and least-painful places to get inked, I need wonder no more!

While the most painful area to get tatted — your genitals — makes sense, it's generally not a good idea to get tattoos in areas that are thin skinned, lightly muscled, or right next to bone.

In other words, to experience the least possible pain, you're going to want a tat on your tuches — which, I learned, is the proper spelling of the Yiddish word for "ass." The more you know!
