Tattooing two days in a row

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, new member and first post here!

 

I am doing two days of tattooing in a row, upper arm, to finish off my sleeve by Mike Stockings. Have a traditional sleeve done by Ross Nagle already. 

Have quite a large traditional piece of two dragons taking up my right torso as well. Have sat for 5 hours a couple of times (Never needed to do more)and  I would consider my pain threshold above average. 

I'm flying over to England to finish the sleeve so this is why we are doing two days in a row. I have read online that some people say the second day hurts less? I'm just wondering does anyone agree/disagree from experience? :) 

Either way I'll end up starting on whatever the artist wants to do, just looking to hear some stories of anyone who has done two days in a row and any tips? Thanks :)

Um, you keep thinking the second day hurts less! Go for the Positive Mental Attitude. Hint: it may hurt worse, it may hurt less but it will probably still hurt. I've done it and I can't say the second day hurts less. Just take super good care of yourself...prepare for battle. 🙂

Or . . . go into it knowing it's going to REALLY SUCK! That way you might be pleasantly surprised. 

Sorry, I haven't done 2 in a row yet. Can't help in that aspect. 

Mike does nice bold work, tho - I hope you come back here and post the results.

Thanks for the reply and advice guys! I appreciate it :) I was thinking I will probably do the bicep on day one and then get the outer arm/shoulder done on day two as I always found those sessions the least painful for my left arm! I was just seeing people on other forums online sayingn it was less painful the second day and I just could not imagine how!! haha  I'd imagine joining them up at the tricep on day 2 will be quite painful tho haha I'll be sure to post the work here! Going for the Chesire Cat inner arm, Harley Quinn (comic style) and Venom on the outside! Will be done this day in two weeks! Can't wait :)
