it gets done in small bits so just relax and hold your breath everytime you get inked!
#2
just relax and chat with the tattooist , i find it very relaxing just chatting to him while he doing the tattoo most tattooists are the same , dont take any pain killers before hand and dont get drunk otherwise the tattooist will refuse to do it
#3
it doesnt hurt half as much as what you think it will, I've got 2 now and I didn't think it was that bad at all and I'm such a wuss! what you having done?

that sounds good, wheres it going? I was nervous about how it'd turn out too but they sort of print it onto your skin first to check you're happy with how it looks before they actually start.

ive got 6 tatts and want another! youll soon be addicted!
#16
I've got a couple of tattoos. Both times I just went in and chatted with the tattooist and that helped take my mind off it. My first tatto was the biggest and it took 3 hours to do. I'd be lying if I said it wasnt sore but its a bearable pain and was well worth it in the end. Just make sure you dont bump it or anyone bangs ino it tomorrow night when your out on the town. Happy B/day

try not to tense yourself, keep it covered for the 1st day and clean with plain water, i used pile cream on mine and it didn't scab over too much and healed quickly

oh and i wouldn't use cocoa butter, the perfume in it might irritate the wound (cos that's basically what it is) you need a mild antiseptic cream
