He is doing machine shading because I'm coming from so far away, we're trying to get it done as efficiently as possible for all parties involved. It hurts like any tattoo does, the back definitely has some sensitive stuff going on. I only have my right leg done otherwise and the jump in pain scale was pretty tremendous for me but I made the 8 hour appointment and I got through it. You'll survive your appointment if out of stubborn-ness alone like I have.
@Gingerninja thanks! I toughed it out thanks in part to your app you sent me! Mike Saurez and Molly complimented me for being TUFF and it made it a little easier and made me feel a little better. The numbing cream was the silent hero for my ribs though.
I'm also booked in with Monji while he is at Inksmith and Rogers in October!
