I would quite like a cover-up / new thing.
As someone who jumped out of the dentist chair the last time they went, what can I do to minimise any "fuckkkk this" noise.
Netflix, noise cancelling headphones?
Apologise in advance to the holder of the gun?
Find someone who uses one of those fancy quiet machines?
Some artists are more down with using pain relief than others, but most of the ones I know have a few sprays around while they’re working. Generally the skin needs to be broken before they’re applied though
Numbing creams can be pretty good for really painful areas. I've only used one once and makes a big difference.
Had some numbing cream on the big piece on my side/hip/thigh and would recommend. But it depends on how bony the area where you’re getting tattooed. Bonier, bones close to skin see if they have any/use any, if it’s a fleshy area you might be able to get away without.
I usually take me kindle and read whilst the tattooing is being done during a long session..
