S5, Ep 25: Redheads + Tattoos with Lyndi Lou (Do We Feel More Pain?)

September 22, 2023

We have done many episodes and have posted many articles on about redheads feeling more pain, or feeling pain differently. Since we know getting tattoos can be painful, we had to dedicate an entire episode to this topic. We couldn't have chosen a better guest than Lyndi Lou. She is a natural redhead, tattoo artist and owner of Mama Tried Tattoo Parlour in Louisville, Kentucky. She is also a painter & wood burner.

Follow her on Instagram: @lyndilou

Questions we ask her:

  1. What was it like for you growing up as a redhead?
  2. Your style is often described as colorful, whimsical, and humorous. How do you incorporate these elements into your tattoo designs?
  3. Do you think redheads have specific needs when it comes to choosing a tattoo artist?
  4. The pain tolerance of redheads is a debated topic. As a natural redhead, and someone who often sees people handle pain, what is your opinion?
  5. Have you ever had any clients who were hesitant about getting a tattoo because of pain, and how do you help them prepare for their appointment(s)?
  6. Can you tell us about any specific tattoo design that you're particularly proud of or that holds a special significance to you?
  7. Tattoo removal! Do you know about it?
