Do they hurt?
There is pain with a tattoo, but your brain manufactures endorphins to help you manage the pain. If the tattoo is close to the bone, it hurts more. Private areas hurt a lot.upper thighs on the outside don’t hurt too bad, but the inside smarts. Anything close to knees and ankles really stings. After the tattoo is on your skin, it will feel like a sunburn for a day or two, and then it will itch.
Looking for a design?
If you want a tattoo but don’t know exactly what you want, look at a tattoo magazine or an on-line tattoo e-zine. Art galleries, photo studios, sketch books, animation magazines and books, and comic books all could be inspiration for a great design for tattoos places.

Types of temporary tattoos
Temporary tattoos can be found in almost any drugstore,usually in the cosmetic section. They last one to three days. There are kits that come with black and white "flash", and you fill in the designs with special tattoo paint. These can last for several days to a week. Mehndi/henna kits are also a temporary form of tattoo. This requires a steady hand and careful application of a paste that must be left on for several hours for good results.
Tribal designs are usually black tattoos places, in a stylistic shape of an animal, spirit, face, weapon, or sometimes a shape. Designs can be small, like an arm band, or an entire back piece, and everything in between
