I did 14 and a half hours on my back last summer, across both shoulders and down to just below mid back. ( it was a cover up from my basic white girl
days) The Right side hurt worse for me. My artist said that one side always hurts worse. He also pointed out that the side I said hurt worse ( the
right) bled more. I went about 2 weeks in between sittings and sat for 2+ hours each time.
Now earlier this year I got the inside of my left bicep done and it hurt, not the worst pain, that was when I got my feet done. ( I won't even touch
those up and they are my kids names). During the tattooing on the inside of my arm, it really wasn't too bad till he got to right about the
"underside" of my arm, that was rough, and thankfully there wasn't much work to be done there. The next day there was no visible bruising, but damn if
it didn't hurt like the dickens. Ugh and putting ointment on it ruined a few of my shirts.
I have a "few" tats, lets see;
-base of my neck- no pain during or after, no scabbing, very little bleeding/oozing.
-back and shoulders- ( mentioned above)
- inside left bicep -(mentioned above)
- both forearms- no pain at all at any point, easiest tats ever
-tops of both feet- F*&k that, never again
-right calf- not too shabby, my artist had to "make a needle" for me, because he didn't have one small enough. it felt like plucking hairs
-inside right ankle- no problems at all, minimal scabbing a few days later.
-Right Hip and thigh- up on the hip wasn't so bad, but down the thigh kinda sucked. I did bruise there but it wasn't really bad, you could see it
- lower back (tramp stamp) - not bad till he got to the butt crack and back of my hips, no bleeding or bruising though.
-lower left side stomach- that sucked, it bruised pretty bad actually, but I think that may be more of a location kind of thing, possibly the artist.
( this guy was really heavy handed)
I think that is all of my tats....
- Back of my right bicep- no pain no bruising
and now my husband is going to be mad, because I want another one......
