Default The new Tattoo

Some of you were asking and I said I would post a link, BUT the tattoo shop's site is being worked on and the slider bars dont work atm, so I figured I would just take a picture and post it . . .

It was schedualed to take 4 hours in the chair but only took about 3:15 - 3:30ish with 2 breaks in there somewhere. It's still pretty sore since it's only 2 days old now and the shine is from the flash and the lotion I've been keeping on it. I have no clue what the yellow is unless it's the bruising. Speaking of bruising if I had thought of it I wold taken a picture of the bruise below my left man boob from the ribs I cracked at a fire the other day. Fortunatly they hurt enuff that my ribs are making my tattoo feel like nothing.

Did it really hurt? Seems like it would be like going to the dentist for kicks.

Well if you're smart and do a bit of shopping in some seedy areas it's not too bad. Head out to a sex shop and get yourself some benzacain cream. It will probably be sold as "stayhard" or some other cheesey name, but check the active ingredient and get the highest concentration you can get.. I dunno what the stuff I used was called but almost afraid to look .

It's a topical analgesic kinda like novacain but not as strong. It will desenstise your skin so when they are doing the tatto it knocks out about 80% of the sensation. You'll still feel the heat the needle builds up but it definetly takes the edge off.

I am scheduled to go under the gun on may 6th. Maybe sooner. I use a guy named Gill Montie in Beaumont. Prettty well known fella. I told him I wanted to go with an oriental theme to match all my other tats, but I wanted him to freehand whatever he felt like. He said no problem....Minimum of 4 hrs, $100/ hr. So what the heck, time to add more ink.

He's my little brother. He had a motorcycle accident back in January lingered for about 9 days then passed. He was 31 years old and had 2 little girls who are still in New Mexico. (Hoping his wife moves back so I can take care of the little 2 girls but I dont see it happening soon).

No worrys, Dont be sorry (it's all I'm hearing again when people ask) I should have mentioned who he was in the main post.

**kinda funny story**

Back to did it hurt for a minute . . .

With the benzacain like I said it wasnt too bad what did hurt was. . . when I fell at that fire the next day and went to the ER the PA was checking me out and doing the primary assesment b4 I saw the doctor. Even though I told her that my chest hurt after taking a fall and landing on a stack of crap; my radio, my flashlight (them ones with the giant box like battery), a hose coupling and my face piece she had to do a cardiac questionaire and a tramua questionaire. When she got to the trauma part and was doing the hands on exam she was touching my head, neck and chest asking how they felt . . . then she moved on to my arms . . . With latex gloves on she puts her hands on both of my shoulders and then begins rubbing up and down my arms RIGHT OVER the fresh tattoo . . . "does that hurt?" As she's doing it I look at her and kinda howl/growl at her and pull away. She gives me a wierd look as says "I thought it was just your ribs that you hurt." I told her that tattoo she just rubbed the hell out of was less then 24 hours old and it didnt hurt b4 but really does now . . . I thought she was gonna cry

I'm going to wait till the Lions win the Superbowl and then celebrate with tattoo.
Looks like I may be waiting a long time.

That tattoo is wicked freakin' cool, man. If I lost my brother, I would do something a lot like it. That's the best memorial you can give someone, right there.
