The brand took about 7 minutes. My big tat took about 3 hours. The pain isn't really comparable. Tat pain goes on and on and on until the area is just so sensitive that everything just plain ol' hurts. The pain from the brand was much more intense, but it was over quicker. Though the endorphin rush after the brand was much more intense.
