6 hour tattoo tomorrow...

Recommended Posts

It'll be way easier than it seems from the outset!

Preload ibuprofen, drink lots of water, and don't forget to breathe.

Breathing is so important. Getting tattoos has made me better at going to the dentist. Same skill set. Sit still and breathe.

Bring some snax with sugar. I take a batch of brownies every session to share.

And yes, breathe!

Oh, and no, you won't die!

I bought Tootsie Rolls and I'm making banana bread to take in with me.

I'll breathe a lot, I swear!

6 hours on your back or front would be very painful but do-able.

On your forearm? Should be even more do-able, not a bad place to be tattooed.

Good luck, you may be being tattooed as I type this!

I did 7.5 hours today, and I didn't die :) You'll get through it!

7.5! Whoa! I'm basically getting something covered up with a half sleeve. My appointment is at 12 central time, so I'll post pictures tonight :D

arg I got six hours on my back today... And I feel like I am handling it like such a wimp.

But, the focus on being calm and breathing helped me get through the first session.

At one point I had this feeling come on suddenly like I was going to be sick, but I took a quick bathroom break and it passed. The tattooist said it's common for people to experience a bit of shock.

I survived! We got no where near the amount done I thought we would' date=' but it's amazing what did get done. I have to keep my bandage on for a while longer, but I'll snap pics after that. Here's a preview...<img src="http://www.lastsparrowtattoo.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=10597"/>[/quote']

Looks great! Was it better or worse than you expected, pain wise?

It was okay until it came to highlighting and he used the line needle for a lot to get good coverage. I was glad when the owl was finally done. I go back in 3 weeks to get my flowers/pocketwatch filled in.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
