    I am probably looking at 3 to 4 hours on this one. I did my center chest in about 5 hours so this will be a piece of cake for me :D

    cool :cool:

    I hope you were sitting/lying comfortably! 5 hours must be pretty intense! 2 was enough for me :)

    was it done in 1 sitting, or did you need to go back?

    I started and it was so painfull ( i thoght i did 2 and a half hours on my upper outer arm i thoght this wont be any diffrent :help: ) and i didint want half a tattoo for 3 weeks so i did 5 hours straight through, When my guy tattoos me he allways lets me bring Metallica to put on so i kind of just zoned out.

    Hehehe, I've got probably close to 30-35 hours total in the chair now. About 4 hours is my limit though in one session. Beyond that and I just want them to stop every time they touch me hehe. All my work has been on my arms, cept a very small one on my back. I think the pit of the elbow is the worst so far. My octopus is all right around there and it was killing me lol. Oddly, the sleeve on my other arm didnt hurt as bad around that area. But in my experience, one side is always more receptive to pain than the other too.

    Cool :cool:- thats one problem with mine, it isn't particularly personal to me. My boyfriend is a really good artist and he's going to design one, so I'll have one that means something to me :)

    Warning.... once you do it, you'll want more.... ;)
