Shin is pretty bad, but top of the foot and side/armpit is worse from what I've heard. I have my appointments set for early september and I'm stoked.

What are you getting?

Arnica.

It is a homeopathic pain reliever.

Same here. *shrugs*

Whatever you do, don't drink either. They say it makes you bleed more? I dunno. He went over all of that before the procedure. I didn't pay attention because I didn't intend on taking anything.

My thing is, if you don't handle the pain, you don't earn the tatt!

Agreed! It doesn't hurt that bad!

oh, phew. I read that the other way round the first time. I thought, "???"

I can't think a tattoo hurts any more than pulling nose hairs.

I'm looking forward to my tramp stamp now that I've decided to get one. First I have to earn it though. Months to go....

Okay, I'll be the Old Phart in the group and ask the obvious: Why on earth would you voluntarily pay someone to do something to you that has you seriously wondering if you'll need pain killers for it? As far as I am concerned, in that scenario, that "someone" had better be an M.D. and it had better be a medically necessary procedure.

Of course, that's just me, Foo's resident curmudgeon. YMMV.

Werd!

The worst thing to do is blunt up. I hear it multiplies the pain threefold.

Before you go through with it, something to consider -- tattoos are permanent. They aren't year-long, or long-lasting. Permanent. That means as you change as a person, and your attitudes and ideas and experiences and viewpoint on things change, the tattoo stays with you through all those phases, including the phase you are in at the time that the tattoo sounds like a great idea. That means when you are older and in a different place in life, the tattoo stays. Not to be a hypocrite -- I have a tattoo and one of my best friends makes a good living at it. But if I had it to do all over again I probably wouldn't.

I'm glad I was never tempted to do such a silly thing before.

Now, of course, it's totally right and I know what I'm doing. But still, +1 Towlie

Too right! If it multiplies pleasure, and pretty much everything else, as much as it does I'd be pretty stupid to think that smoking a J for that would make it any better. Yikes!

I tried explaining that to my best friend three years ago. I think he wishes he took my advice now that he has a jolly rodger on his forearm, or maybe not.

I get tattoos because I love the art. Its not the pain or the process that I do it for, its the final product. If there was a painless method, of course I would go that route.

This isnt my first tattoo by any means, nor my last, but thanks for the advice. Tattoos are like time lines of your life. They mark where you've been, what you've believed in, etc. You obviousally will never understand that therefore I will not try to explain myself.


The artist has a numbing cream im using so problem solved!

Tats are so comon today that just having one makes you just like everyone else. Why bother? Most are ugly and un original. Sorry to be a wet blanket but tats are so 2002. Your better off wearing a mullet. The mullet is free and you you can cut it off when you finally realize it looks dorky.
