  • Anxiety.
    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..
