why do i faint when i get my hair cut or brush my hair or get a tattoo?!?

hi, i am 19, 5'5" and 170lbs female.

every single time i get my hair cut with electric buzzers, or get a tattoo, i become dizzy/light headed, nauseous, sweaty and hot. i feel like i cant catch my breath and my heart races. usually i faint a few minutes after those symptoms start. they begin almost immediately after they turn the needle on for the tattoo gun or when the clippers buzz against my head. sometimes when i brush my hair this happens as well. it does not feel like an anxiety attack, i get those often and it feels different than this. this has been going on for a year. no previous problems like this have occurred and nothing about my health has changed to cause this. what the heck?

    Fainting from having your hair groomed is a real condition. Look up Hair Grooming Syncope.
