I use the Freestyle tester on my arms. Even at a setting of 3 (range 1-5), I can barely feel it. And I have fibromyalgia, so my body tissue is extremely tender and sensitive. What I find causes more discomfort is actually pressing the device against my arm AFTER the needle has penetrated, in order to encourage a larger drop of blood to form. And the rubbing and some slapping I do beforehand to warm the surface and bring more blood to the surface.
