I always wondered (I have no tats), could they not administer a local anesthetic in the area that they're working on?
They will provide numbing cream for a fee. Ive used it once - the area hurt so much more than after any other tattoo. Ive never bothered with it since.

When I was 17, my best friend's brother-in-law acquired a tattoo gun, ink, stencils, and several possibly used needles. My best friend, without ANY prior experience proceeded to give himself a tattoo. Yes, did a tattoo on himself without any experience. Yes it looked like a blob.

He offered to do one for me, but I politely declined. I've never had a tattoo.

ive been saying to myself that I may get one if I ever thought I could think of something that I would enjoy for the rest of my life. Ive never come up with anything...i get in and out of things.
I respect the artistry, just not sure about being a permanent canvas for it.

But I swear when I go to the beach or pool now Im in the minority of ppl who dont have some ink.
its funny how something "counterculture" became so mainstream.

Fun fact: tattooed people sometimes care less what they get as more ink is applied.
I am just the opposite. I found this tattoo 5 yrs ago and I never stopped loving it. It was meant to be.

This tattoo didn’t really even hurt. The artist was amazing. He’s in a band and once I found that out I couldn’t stop talking. I asked him if he minded we carried on our convo while he was tattooing. No probs. One of the best days ever since this COVID CRAP started. I have the tattoo wrapped right now. When it’s healed I will show you ppl. He even put a tiny ACDC lightening bolt in their signature red right in the middle of the design. It’s so cool. I love it. I am so happy that I waited for such a long time to see if this tattoo was right for me and it certainly was. This day rocks. I have to go to work but I can hardly wait to get home and play all night and all day Friday. I feel like I am 5 Christmas morning. Sheer excitement.

Good on you for waiting till your 100% sure even if it never happens.

I got a whole pile of tattoos from friends aspiring to be tattoo artists when I was in Jr. High- HS in the 90’s.

it’s been a bitch and super expensive to cover up and I’m still working on it. If I could go back and kick 15 year old me’s ass I would with furious anger.

I have one tattoo and would eventually like to get more. I prefer the American traditional style and there are a few great artists here in Ontario

I just took off the dressing that had been applied after I got my tattoo. It really is exquisite. The attention to the details are spot on. It’s got a little tiny red lightening bolt right in the middle with a black key line. If you know your music then you know who it is. Just very subtle. I love it. It’s me.

Yes I just got one yesterday and I am thinking of another one. And EVH one. Don’t know what I am after yet. He had a major influence on me. He has always been held in my highest regard. Any ideas?
I want it visible but not blatant in your face.
