Back of Neck Tattoos Pain
All tattoos hurt. It is pretty hard to explain how much a tattoo hurts as everyone tolerates pain differently. Pain varies a lot depending on the part of your body. Ribs, sternum and collarbone are the top three areas that hurt the most. The spine also hurts quite a lot. The skin on the back of the neck is very thin and it is right on top of the spine along with cranial nerves. So, it could be painful but surprisingly back of the neck is considered to be one of the less painful spots of the body to get a tattoo.
Many people who have neck tattoos mentioned that the least painful area on the back of the neck is the lowest part of the neck. Either side of the spine and near the shoulders have more fat, which acts as a cushion for the bones. The skin also tends to be thicker in this area.
