don't know if this has been discussed before BUT does anyone get a real rush after getting a tattoo ? the last one i got on monday i was bouncing off the walls for hours afterwards. lov-er-ly
it only happened afterwards when i saw it cause i was in to much pain during it
I get bored, I really do - I read books or chat to the tattooist while she's working. I get a huge thrill when I see the finished work, but I don't think that has anything to do with endorphines, just appreciation.
yeah, especially as mines a massive cover up operation, each visit gets it looking more and more like I want it to, and the old crud keeps disappearing.
Will be onto virgin flesh territory soon, hell I'm gonna get me a bodysuit
I don't get bored but the pain doesnt make for enjoyment...i had a massive sense of suspense waiting to see the finished work on my back then i was so excited for days after the first few hours after are great i cant stop looking at it and i'm deliriously happy, dont stop smiling. my foot one was interesting cos i could see everything she did the suspense wasn't there bu the asme feling after it was done. I love the after feeling, im not into the pain so much
I definately get a rush after having work done. It usually lasts about a week. Unfortunately I can only aford to get done every 2 weeks. I consider it therapy. It's certainly a lot more constructive than many other forms of therapy.
i dont really get board, because i know them all at the tattoo place...so there is always one poping in to talk to me, but the problem is when im getting tattoo'd i always get a ich, but i cant move or scratch because its usally my arse
