    Does it hurt as bad as everyone says??

    IMO, it hurts. alot. and I have a really high tolerance for pain. I mean, tattoos on both ribs, neck, wrist, hip bone, foot, piece of cake. Brazilian wax = OUCH. But I PROMISE its not unbearable. You just gotta prepare yourself for it. And its SOOOOOOOOOO worth it. Amazing. Everyone's hair grows at a different pace, so it all depends. Mine took a week and a half to START to grow anything back. Go for it!
    Gotta look this life in the eye.

    I would'nt say it hurts but its def a feeling thats not normal...to me it didnt bother me I have a really HIGH pain tolerance...one my friends calls it the "eyebrow wax from hell" ....i always take motrin before i go it helps with swelling and any excess pain....I Hope this helps....

    P.S its sooo nice to not have to shave on your honeymoon etc...

    yes it a toe curling experience but totally worth it. For me it only lasted like a week before it started to grow back. I have a friend that does it all the time and she says the more you do it the longer it takes to grow back so maybe do it a few times ahead so you know the experience too. Exfoliating the area (basically scrubbing pretty hard) before hand helps with the ingrown hair possibility according to the girl who does me. and definitly take to motrin or aleve or advil before hand. also the harder you pull your skin tight the less it hurts!

    Do it..

    If you are feeling frightened about what comes next, don't be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don't waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you'll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart where your hope lives. You'll find your way again.
