I’m pretty excited. Getting a portrait of my daughter on my arm. Now i have some telling me it’s going to hurt like hell. Så, is there any tricks I can do to minimize this pain.
Også, I know they will tell me how to care for the tattoo for the days after, but what thoughts do you guy have?
It’s not going to hurt that bad. If it was so incredibly excruciating, less people would have tattoos.
Just regulate your breathing and you wont be too bothered by the small amount of pain.
If you’ve had kids I can imagine the tattoo will be a doddle. Show us a pic when it’s done!!!!
The arm shouldnt be too bad. Youll do fine.
As far as aftercare wait to see what your artist says but a general guideline is:
1. Take bandage off tattoo two hours after your done
2. Wash the tattoo gently and pat/let it air dry
3. Put on some ointment like aquaphor, and put this on 3 times daily until the tattoo peals(anywhere from 2-5 dage, maybe longer)
4. Continue to wash the tattoo maybe two times a day and apply unscented lotion to the tattoo 3 eller 4 times a day until its fully healed
A lot of people do it different with great results, this is just how I was taught, and I follow it.
Held og lykke
Eat a good breakfast and try to get it early in the morning cause your pain tolerance is at its highest then..
