To me, it felt like getting a cat scratch for a long time. Just kind of, yeah, scratchy and annoying. But my tattoo was small. Later in the day it itches a little, and then it's better. :)

Can anyone explain the kind of pain/sensation? If that question makes any sense.

Avoid the center of the chest idea at all costs. Pecs okay, sternum ixnay.
The main pain determinant is how much muscle and/or fat is between the tattoo and BONE.
inside the wrist is reasonable as the "only" thing close to the surface is a tendon.
the design you are tending toward (as in the supplied image) is small and made of lines as opposed to areas of color.
A tattoo involving areas of color will be a challenge. For a tattoo larger than the one you have indicated it would be a
good strategy to use linework and multiple colors to allow the artist to spread the work. Solid areas over bone, well ...
ever read Kafka's "In The Penal Colony"? Personally I would not suggest a "statement" tattoo as opposed to a personal
tattoo. Many artists will tell you exactly the same. If you want to make a statement the best thing is your actions or,
barring that, a t-shirt. Believe it or not, 30 years from now something that interests you as a statement now may seem
redundant or obvious like a tattoo that says "I have brown hair."
To get back on point, a tattoo in a well selected area will probably feel like a minor sidewalk scrape that keeps getting
lightly scraped for the duration of the tattoo. Like fingernails on a chalkboard some people can ignore it easily, others not
so much. Be excruciatingly HONEST with yourself. If a tattoo is in any way an effort to socially assimilate, don't go there.

Oh my gosh, Marc. I'm not sure if I've ever seen your tattoo before, but it is SO YOU :D

Right?! I still love it.

Going in for a consultation about my second one on Monday - though I'm actually filming something in a shop tomorrow night, and f I end up getting something small & impulsive while we're there, I won't be terribly surprised.

I keep waiting for the day I get something small and impulsive, probably on a trip or something. It's gonna happen, but it has it be the right moment...
