It really depends out of all honesty. My first tattoo was on my inner forearm and it was quite big for my first tattoo. On a scale of 1-10 it was a 3 , it didn’t hurt at all. I’ve also had 4 tattoos done on my inner bicep and those hurt like hell , I’d rate those like an 8 out of 10 but that’s one of the touchier more sensitive spots including your elbows , ribs , and behind the knees. I just got a huge piece done from my wrist to my elbow and the most painful spots were those 2 areas. If you’re doing a small tattoo you’ll be fine , mine required a lot of shading and lining so it hurt but if you do something small it won’t be that bad! The pain will totally be worth it! I have some close to my wrist where I only did lining and those weren’t bad at all , good luck!
