I’m getting my first tattoo this saturday, relatively big on my rib. Any
tips? I’m pretty skinny p:
So I am getting my first tattoo on my spine. Is there anything I should
know about pain in that particular area?
That really helpful Thanks
what if u dont get used to the pain with ur first tattoo??
pffttt pain, what pain i sat there like nothing was going on, i didnt feel
pain until the skin was raw hour n 10 mins later
fall asleep? who the hell fall asleep getting a tattoo thats impossible
My artist actually warned me of the blood sugar drop possibility during our
consult day before and told me to bring a soda or something with sugar in
it in case of this problem. Just curious I know it varies on persons pain
tolerance on speed of tattoo getting done but roughly how long did that
back piece at 1:10 take to do or was it something that took multiple
sittings? Also if your doing tattoo that takes multiple sittings is it
better practice for someone to tip you little each sitting or just give you
big tip at the end of it?
“how To”, ……..Don’t be a pussy!
what about eating during a tattoo
im having a 6 hour session on 21st march not looking forward to it lol
Yep, I got a bit light headed at the beginning of my first tattoo, but as
this dude says, it´s only in the first 10-15 minutes. After a little pause
to sip some water and bend the head down, you are good to go till the end
with no problems.
step 1: dont be a pussy
I’m pretty sure tattoos hurt less than braces. I just got some new brackets
in for my braces today, and my mental swear run through is getting
progressively more creative as the night goes on. Anyone got any advice for
how to fall asleep when you entire mouth HURTS?
Okay so I have a few tattoos some small some big ,I’m going in for my chest
piece today and as for preparation just go for this:
Make sure you eat a while before getting it done
Take water with you (if you are doing a long sitting)
Take some headphones or something to concentrate on ,that won’t make you
move much preferably haha
And Concentrate on your breathing 🙂
As for small tattoos for the first tattoos ,I’ve found if you go big first
then you can expect less if you go smaller for the second 🙂
I still have to get my upper back finished…I sat through the outline but
it dam near killed me. I was literally crying like a f’n baby. I have large
tattoos on other parts of my body but for some reason I can’t handle the
back and I’m petrified to go get it finished. Whar is your opinion on
numbing agents such as bactine etc….?
does having a tattoo on calf hurts?
Okay when you get your tattoo, it’s all going to depend on your
pain-tolerance. Im 16 and got my first tattoo in June. Didnt feel bad at
all, yes there was some pain but nothing unbearable. Even the day after,
it felt like i didnt even get a tattoo done. It’s just gonna depend on
your pain tolerance.
Im getting my first one in a couple days, i hope its not soo bad
I am an ex dialysis patient and I used the ‘self safe hypnosis’ technique I
learned during then for my first (4 1/2 hour) tattoo.
Definately deep breathing and putting your mind in a different place helps
People say calf or legs in general don’t hurt. I have my entire calf
covered and it hurt so badly that I almost didn’t go back for the finishing
Can you drink water when your finished
Thanks man! So pumped about getting mine. Is it just me or do all tattoo
artists seem really nice?
I did, so go ahead. if you can handle a little irritation then its no
problem, it all lies on how you manage it
i have never seen anyone read a book while getting tattooed u sound like an
savior from what? from pain? that would make sense if he wouldn’t be the
one that caused the pain in the first place.
dont make you first tat a huge one lol

Clearly you have never had your stomach tattooed…dear god that pain is
It feels like a sunburn, really. It acts the same, too with peeling and
stuff. Just remember to moisturize lightly and not to pick at it. 🙂
when you say no aspirin or ibuprofen, what about paracetamol?
and your tats will be faded within the week. good job
BRING Gatorade or sugary candies when getting a tattoo helped me allot.
I got my first tattoo yesterday on my upper back…. like on the left…
The lining hurt pretty bad but the shading was more soothing. I squeezed my
friends hand whenever it got tooo bad!
cant wait getting one today at 2 o clock
Where you get it doesn’t matter. It is going to hurt a little no matter
where it is. Bony areas are the worst, like your ribcage or elbows.
However, once you endure the pain once, you’ll be fine every other time.
Don’t worry about the pain and just go through with it. You’ll be fine.
It burns, like a bee sting or when you are making food and the butter/oil
you are using burns you :p Härlig smääärta.
Will weed help the pain
That’s reassuring thanks! But I really want one on my upper spine, and
that’s what’s worrying me. Should I be worried? 🙁 I wouldn’t want this one
anywhere else, and I know the spine is gonna be the worst. Whereabouts did
you get yours?
What about coming into the tattoo parlor blazed as a motherfucker?
– LOl I AlWAYS DRINK A 40z RIGHT B4 AM GETTIN MA TATTOO .. O BETTER YET AT
THE SAME TIME LOl ..
i had an amazing artist in north east ohio who was a hilarious guy who
talked to me the whole time and had on some classic rock, i didn’t even
notice he was still inking me up half way through. seriously just talk to
the tattooist or who ever came with you, if nobody wants to just listen to
some sweet music it’ll make everything seem so much faster and painless.
Why wouldn’t it?
