Aside from the design you're going to choose, one of the most important parts of getting a tattoo is *where* exactly are you going to place it. There are several factors you have to consider, one of those being your pain tolerance. If you're a bit sensitive, we're happy to report that the forearm is one of the spots that don't hurt as much as the others. If you wanna get down to the specifics, the outer forearm hurts less than the inner one, due to the radial nerve the runs through the latter. (Check out our detailed tattoo pain chart here!)
