  • Felt to me like I was being slashed again and again with razor blades. I didn't need any breaks for my first one, but the second one I almost passed out on. Tried to talk the guy into doing it as I lie there unconscious, but he wouldn't. Did get a Snickers bar from him though! LOL

  • My first one I didnt need to stop. The second one is really big so yeah we stopped because I had to use the bathroom lol. The pain is like raking a finger nail up and down your skin and barely breaking it. Or like a kitten with a really rough tongue licking you over and over. It hurts, but not enough for me to cry about or anything. My husband on the other hand cried.

  • The one on my hand felt like I had a very mild sunburn that had been scratched (not like a cat scratch, but like it had been scratched because it itched or something). I didn't even feel the one on the back of my neck much, but what I did feel tickled so bad I had to have someone hold me to keep from laughing and shaking. I didn't take any breaks, I went straight from my nose piercing to my hand tat to my neck tat the same night. Neither of those are very large those (hand is about the size of a quarter and a nickel, neck is about the size of a nickel, maybe a quarter).

  • Just kind of annoying...depending on where on your body you get it....if it's a fatty part it's just annoying...if it's a bony's going to hurt a bit more but unless it's a HUGE tattoo you shouldnt need any's not that bad

  • It's a little annoying at first, but then it kinda feels good, lol. I didn't need them to stop.

  • None of mine hurt and I have four. The guy had to stop with two of mine and take a break because of the detail work involved.

  • Sunburn...

  • to me it did not hurt just the aftermath, when you have to lye on the spot where the tattoo is or when some one touches it. other than that i don't think that there is nothing you can take to heel the pain.
