Fuck that. Don’t be a pussy

One time I used a numbing agent and the pain wasn’t much different. It turned out I was allergic to it and had a severely swollen leg for nearly two weeks.

If you can’t handle a little pain get a henna tattoo.


210 inking hours and counting.

Tattoos are for the living. Tombstones are for the dead. Get a tattoo for yourself!

I only have three or so martinis or “The Glenlevit” scotch/rocks. (steakhouse is less than 1/10 mile from the shop)

If I had three martinis/scotches, I’d probably puke between the car and the tattoo chair. That would help with pain, though.

Regarding pain, I’ve already picked some of the less pleasant landmarks. I have a pretty low pain tolerance and I tell the artist in advance. I usually tip well for my moaning and focus on not moving or being cold.

Numbing creams/sprays are bogus given the nature of skin, tattooing (it goes INTO the skin, kids), and amides and esters (the main stuff that junk is made of.) If you’re getting tattooed, they simply won’t give you relief.

Yup – a numbing cream might help with the pain if it’s a VERY small and quick tattoo, like 20mins. But the issue is, that is does change the texture of your skin. I tried one when I pierced my nipples, and the skin felt thicker. (I pierced them myself) So it can be an issue.
And if you use it for larger pieces you’re just screwing yourself, because as soon as the effect wears off, your body hasn’t released the proper endorphines to deal with the pain, so you get SO much pain suddenly!
Ryan Eternal had a numbing spray when I was there, but it was more just to take the edge off at the end of a tattoo, when you’re really starting to feel the pain. He was actually supposed to give me a bottle of the stuff, because had some extra and I’m gonna need it when I get my knee done, but we totally forgot :p
I’ve been granted extra privileges. I love knowing my artists… The guy I plan to do my knee and the guy to do my chest, have both promised me that I can drink beer, curse and get a late-night appointment..

I’m a terrible client, though. I had some re-work done on my sleeve last month. I know this artist very well, we go yeeeears back, and he’s done a lot of work on me.
I spent three hours cursing him out. I was hung over, tired and pretty much hadn’t eaten, so it was my own fault, but I still kept telling him he was an ass, that I hated him, that I never wanted to see him again, etc.. 😛 He’s a sadist and he loves me, so I get away with it, but their piercer(who doesn’t know me), came in wondering what the hell was going on. We have a shitload of fun, I moan and curse, he tells me I’m flirting too much and propose. It’s a lovely way to deal with pain.
He wants two more sessions of re-work, and I’m SO looking forward to it!

Careful that is what I tried when I had issues but then again Jason uses it all the time.

Where did Ethan Bradly’s post go? Even more of a pussy to delete your comments.

did you use the cream and/or spray? a lot of good artists are sponsored by it. maybe it doesnt work well with north westerners?
