I personally don't have tattoos, but knows plenty of people who do and have basically asked the same qustions.
1. Pain level of your tattoo, 1 to 10, 10 being the worst pain possible.
THis really depends on your pain tolerance. I have friends who say they actually like the feeling of getting tattoos. Other people may think it's the most painful thing in the world. Really, if you're going to dedicate a portion of your body to a tattoo, it should be worth the pain it will take because it should mean something to you.
2. How long did it take? To outline? To fill in? To completely heal?
For a tattoo like the one you describe, that shouldn't take very long. My friend Olivia got a small ohm symbol on her neck and said the actual tattoo didn't even take an hour. It all depends on the intircacy of the design. To heal completely for that smal of a tatoo shouldn't take very long. I know Olivia stopped lotioning hers about a week afterwards and it looks fine.
3. Is there anything to numb the area, before getting stabbed to death?
I've never heard of being numbed. My step-dad descrivbed it as getting scratched on a sun burn, and while that hurts, it's not bad enough that you couldn't stand it.
4. Are you happy with your results? Regrets?
Once again, personal thing.
I think Olivia's cost 20-40? I can't remember. I jut keep referencing hers because it's about the same size, about 3x3.
6. How do I know the right place to get it?
That's another personal thing. Obviously a place where you're comfortable somebody seeing long enough to put it there. Somewhere where you think it looks well positioned. I Mean really, for that small, you could honestly just print out a picture and start moving it around to see where tyou'd like it.
7. Did you have any excessive redness/infections/irritation?
If the needle is clean and sterile, you 8shouldn't* get anything excessive beyond the typical bit of red ness there will be from getting punctured thousands of times with a needle.
