Let's face it. All tattoos hurt, no matter where you get them on the body. However, not all spots on the body are created equal. Some parts of the body, such as the thighs and arms, are pretty manageable. Even the biggest needle babies can get through those spots. But other spots, such as the hands, elbows, chest or knees can be pretty unbearable.

Knees are undoubtedly one of the toughest spots to get tattooed. They're not only super bone-y, which makes tattoos very uncomfortable, but the placement is awkward for the artist. Plus, you've got two of them!

Although they're not the most pleasant, people still love getting their knees blasted. And honestly, I can't really blame them. They look cool as hell. Plus, there are a few funny puns that you can go with—which in my mind, makes any tattoo better. Want peonies on the knees? Those are peon-knees! What about bees? Well, those tattoos will be the bee's knees!
