Knee tattoos are not the ones you will see every day on the street. In fact, do you know anyone who has a knee tattoo? And this is not only because they are extremely painful. There are several more reasons why people don’t choose to ink their knees. But, just because the majority of people don’t want, it doesn’t mean they aren’t cool. Let’s take a look at knee tattoos – why aren’t they so popular?

Knee tattoos – one of the most painful tattoo types

First of all, keep in mind that knee is one of the most painful areas when talking about tattoos. Although everyone says that the pain is relative and depends on each person individual tolerance, the knee isn’t that area. No matter what you might hear from your cousin’s friend – it’s extremely painful. And that’s because the knee is a bony area, which makes it even more sensitive.

Also, you probably remember the image of a doctor hitting your knee with a tiny rubber hammer at some point in your life? Well, he was checking your innate reflexes, and in some cases, they can cause involuntary movements. If you decide to get a knee tattoo, be sure to consult a doctor before getting it, or you might start kicking your tattooist in the middle of the work.

Taking care of your knee tattoo after tatting

If you’re going to ink your knees, we assume that you already have at least some tattoos. Otherwise, we strongly advise you to choose a less painful body area. After getting used to the needle, you will be able to move on to more painful areas.

So, as you already know, after getting a tattoo you must always perform specific actions to protect it until it heals. When speaking of knee tattoos, you must be very cautious with what you wear. Knees are in constant moving and contact with the garments, and this friction is more intense than anywhere else on the body. You should wear short clothes that wouldn’t cover your knees and avoid rubbing them as much as possible.
