I think Myth ws tempted to use a magic spray on me towards the end of thursday. Every time he stopped I was out of the seat for a little move around. We only had the king's arm and septr to finish but I'd had enough... Big girl was said quite a few times.

I was like that at Peterlee, hopping up every two minutes towards the end

Anything that helps the customer sit stiller will make the tattooists job easier and lead to a better piece.

I always take painkillers these days.... why hurt if you don't have too?

Brim has some brilliant cream from the states that numbs the skin, but you have to break it first. And there are so many of these magic potions avaiable that it seems silly in this day and age to suffer.

I'm torn on this one personally. I think it very much needs to be a joint decision between client and artist...especially if it affects the way the skin feels and works.

I don't think it's something I'd ever use, however that said if you wanted to bust out a nice long sitting I can see the advantages.

On a side note, is that stuff from America legal over here. I'd heard that due to different laws you need to be a qualified anaesthesiologist (sp) in the UK to use it, due to having to break the skin? I could be entirely wrong.

Feck knows!! I'll get brim to check that out.

Not all artists say these creams make any difference to their tattooing process by the way.

I have had many a customer that I would dunk in a bath of numbing cream before I would ever consider tattooing them again.

As for being qualifed to use a cream, nope you dont have to be. It is a topical anesthetic, you only need to be qualified to administer it by injection.

What ever it takes to get the job done easier in my opinion. Fuck the 'tattoos have to hurt' malarky

I had a numbing spray put on my lower leg at Brighton, it stung like fuck when put on but that could only be used on broken skin, I must admit it did take the edge off it but cant say it made it really numb, I do personally think after years of being tattooed you become accustomed to the pain, its not nice in places but adds to the buzz of getting ink

I think the pain is an essential part of getting tattooed. If tattoos were painless i wouldn't look forward to getting them as much. I wouldn't have that slight nervous feeling every time i get tattooed, which adds to the excitement for me.
It would just be like buying a new piece if clothing but permanent(?). I also feel like ive earned my tattoo at the end of the session because ive been through the pain. I know times move on but throughout history pain has been almost as important as the design that's been put on. It just adds to the whole tattoo experience for me.
