All that said, there are also other factors for how much pain you'll feel. People who have lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time may have looser skin which could also be more sensitive to tattoos. Those with very low body fat may also feel more pain. The design of your tattoo will also make a difference. Large tattoos or those that require shading will hurt more than simple, lined tattoos.

Some other things to consider when deciding on a body part to tattoo are the healing time, risk of infection and longevity.
