I titled this as so just to hopefully spark a little more sexist trouble. Truth is I am a, can you say pussy here?, when it comes to getting tattoos - and I'm about to do it for the 3rd time. If I can't work out my fears here - where can I, I ask!?! 1st - I had a thought - when I've had really nasty toothaches in the past, 2 aspirins would knock the hell out of that pain. It would seem logical that a couple of asprins should knock out the little pinching of a tattoo needle, ay? Anyone ever do this?? I think I'm gonna.... (I don't do drugs or drink anymore so don't bother). 2nd - this has got me concerned, and I mentioned it in another thread... I'm getting it on my inner wrist, and I'm one of the most vascular people I know. How will they be able to work over my lumpy veins and are they going to destroy and tattoo them??? I don't have much fat, it's pretty much skin and veins and I'm concerned about all kinds of crap going on. Should I insist they do the work with my arm upright??? It's the only way the veins seem to disappear? Finally - I know sensitive areas differ on everyone's body, but the inner wrist is where mommies drip milk on themselves to see if it's too hot for the baby. Is this gonna hurt even more the Nerve! logo on my calf. Please goof on me to no end - and then offer some inspiration. Thanks.
