New Here in Initiation Posted July 17, 2016 3 hours ago, Rhythm said: No need to apologize. There is another tattoo that I'd eventually like to get that you'd all like more but it's more complex and the artist that I'd like to do it has a several year long wait list. This one is small and simple so I figured I'd get it and see get some experience with tattoos before getting a big one. The experience of getting a small script tattoo is worlds apart from the experience of getting a tattoo with a large design, filling and shading. The mindset going into the two would have to be different, as well. I have one small tattoo that was my third one that I got. I saw why some people said that getting tattoos didn't hurt that much (something like a bee sting); they must all have small tattoos! Even going from one artist to another can throw me off as far as my ability to sit and pain tolerance because of the different ways that artists execute their appointments.
