Tattoos feel different for everybody, it all depends on your pain tolerance. I have low pain tolerance, and I have two tattoos, both on the tops of my feet (a very sensitive area) where there isn't a lot of skin, and it is close to the bone.
I found that it wasn't a nice feeling, as in I was glad when he stopped, but it is a lot better then you expect it to be !
It is definitely a bearable pain, and it helps if you talk to your artist while he is doing it, it will take your mind off of it. But I believe that the more skin that is in an area, the less it is probably going to hurt.
Basically if you're not a compete whimp, you should be totally fine. You expect a lot worse than it actually is, and it gets you all worked up.
Whatever you do, don't take a pain killer before hand, like ibuprofen (advil), it thins your blood, and makes it hurt worse !
