Getting a tattoo hurts. That’s pretty obvious and anyone expecting to get inked without a fair-share of pain is, well, a damned fool. But there just so happens to be some places on your bod that hurt more than others when it comes to suffering for permanent art.

1. Hands

2. Feet

3. Elbow

4. Back of Knee

5. Inner Arm

6. Chest

7. Sternum

8. Head

9. Ribs

10. Spine

They’ve even provided a handy-dandy info-graphic showing why each spots hurts so friggin’ bad…
