Answering some important questions you may have concerning small tattoos, such as pain and cost. Let’s get into it!

Do They Hurt?

Yes, small tattoos hurt, but not as bad as big ones do. If only because they are smaller and you are in pain for less time. Also, since they are smaller, the tattoo is less likely to touch one of the rougher spots on your body(i.e., your ribs, wrists, and boney areas). How awesome is that?

They will still hurt but not as bad. If you are still worried about it, take a deep breath, I have a solution for you. Numbing cream is my saving grace when I go in for tattoo appointments. You can order it online and bring it with you; the cream goes on your area of choice and numbs it so you won’t feel as much during your appointment.

How Much Do Small Tattoos Women Need Cost?

One of my favorite things about small tattoos is their cost. Most small tattoos will only cost anywhere from $50-$100, depending on what you get. Since tattoo artists will charge you by the hour, the less time it takes to do the tattoo, the less you have to pay. That makes small tattoos for women all the cheaper.

But if you are going for a highly detailed tattoo, it can be more than that. The only way to see how much it will cost is by asking your tattoo artist how much their estimate is when you show them your tattoo idea. They will be able to tell you the exact amount.
