Pain is relative to the person; pain for you, maybe wouldn’t be pain for me. One must expect some degree of discomfort, however as an artist I try my best to ensure my clients are as comfortable as possible. Prior to beginning the process, I cleanse the area well and apply a topical numbing cream for about 20-25 minutes. Once we begin the process I continue to apply a liquid numbing for the duration of the procedure.
Discomfort level on a scale of 1-10. . .
I typically ask my clients to describe their discomfort level on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most uncomfortable or “painful”. The numbers I hear most are 3 – 4. Hopefully that puts a lot into perspective. In my own personal opinion, as a client myself, I find the wiping process the most sensitive. However the discomfort is temporary and subsides quickly
