My thighs will form welts as soon as a line is drawn...like you can watch it raise up and it's really creepy. No bleeding though. A little Bactine helps with the swelling.
It can be a little painful for me, but no artist I've used has decided to stop early because of it.
But again, no excessive bleeding, so YMMV.
Yeah, my Dad has never commented on my ink, but I've no doubt it disturbs him. My Baptist raised Mom cried back in 1974 when I got my first small one. She died before I really started getting covered.
@Moreismore Do your parents get out much? They must think there's a whole helluva lot of sailors and gangsters out there . . .
