Why Getting Tattooed And Sex Are Similar

The Sensations Experienced Are Almost Identical

Ever felt that rush of adrenaline shooting through your veins when you are about to get tattooed? But also when you are about to have sex? Yes? Well it’s normal. Some people compare getting tattooed with having sex. I’m one of them.

There might be multiple factors for that, including the arousal through pain. Hence, the saying “pain is pleasure.”

When I first got tattooed, I didn’t get much of it, because the tattoo was small, but the adrenaline was definitely there. My third tattoo was my lower back, and that experience was very similar to having sex for the first time. It was exciting, it hurt, but I also tried to relax the more the tattoo needle penetrated my skin.
