Factors that Influence Scalp Micropigmentation Pain

Your Pain Threshold

Everyone’s individual pain threshold, or the point at which something starts to hurt, is different. This factor is based on a lot of things, including:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Genetics
  • Upbringing

Your head is an especially sensitive part of your body, too. For most people, any kind of head tattoo is going to at least be uncomfortable. The sensitivity levels will also change depending on the area of your scalp receiving micropigmentation treatment, with skin closer to your face being more sensitive.

Here’s a test: pinch your skin between the nails of your thumb and forefinger. That’s a good indicator of how painful it will be to tattoo that area.

The discomfort will be sustained, so you may even get used to it, which will mean it will be progressively less painful as the session goes on.

Stress And Anxiety

It’s been proven that stress and anxiety heavily contribute to your pain level. Being tense before and during this procedure can drastically increase your pain level.
