It is so fascinating to me how each person is wired so differently. @Dan @Hogrider My spine wasn't bad EXCEPT for the very top about 4-5" below my hairline. That was some red-hot needle territory.

yep ! me too,that's where that Oni was put,and it was bad for me.

Three times I sat for four hours on the ribs. Twice I sat for six hours (shoulder and calf). I didn't feel my shoulder but lord have mercy that last hour of my calf was brutal.  My comfort zone is definitely 4 hours with ease.

Funny, I didn't have any issues on my calf either, but ribs? Holy shit! First time I had my ribs worked on was the only time I've ever had to say stop so I could get my shit together. Second time, it was nothing. Third time I had to tap out after 3 1/2 hours. All in the same general area. I have another appointment in March and hopefully we'll finish that piece.

I had each of my calves done one week apart. My right calf twitched like a son of a gun. I really had to struggle to control the involuntary movements. Of course, that had me concerned about my left calf the next weekend. My left calf was a total non-event and a completely different experience. Oy vey!

Aww man c'mon once this arm is fixed it's chest and rib time don't tell me that shit. I'm planning on getting my nipples blacked out as well but I'm thinking of doing that a cm at a time every time I go.

My longest was 7 hours of lining from the side of my butt to almost the side of my knee. I think I saw God. I had the shakes really bad after and by the time I got home, I had a fever. I called my mom when I was done like I usually do to let her know the damage had been done, and I distinctly remember telling her I was never getting another one...that was a couple tattoos ago, of course. :3_grin:

My artist always says, "Just because it's gonna hurt is no reason not to get one." By then end of the session I'm usually thinking it's a pretty good reason.

It took the artist about 5 hours, he said it was due to all the different colors, my arm was in a lot of pain and I really considered never getting another tattoo after it. Horrible experience

Longest was prob when I got both feet and also the side of my calf done all in one day. Was prob around 8 hours all together. I was pretty happy when that was over!
