Pain is subjective so there’s no simple answer to this. Some clients report a discomfort in particular areas while others can doze off. Thinner scalps and scar tissue may be factors that can increase discomfort though none of our clients have complained of anything more severe. As a nonintrusive procedure we only deposit the ink to the epidermis level of the skin, there is no breaking of the skin, swelling, bleeding or scabbing.
