First tattoo. Advice?

by no name

So who on here has a tattoo? Specifically on your wrist. Even better the wrist you cut on.

I want to get a tattoo just above my cuts. Basic. Black. A few words. “Remember that i love you” and a little butterfly above the R. Im told that it doesnt hurt. Its more of an irritation. And i just remembered….i cut. Well damn. My nerves are fucked. That would make it different from others who dont. Now the area that i cut is a lot more sensitive than where im actually going to get the tattoo. However its only about….idk say 5cm above them. Not very far away. And im getting it for my depression and i think its an awesome idea. I want it. But…what if i change my mind half way through. What if it hurts too much and i just cant. Also i have a phobia of needles. Yes phobia. Where a fear you can sit there take a deep breath and have an anxiety attack. I completely panic, freak out and run away screaming. I just cant.

I have been talking with my artist. Get to know him so im not letting a complete stranger do it. Hes cool. Ive seen his work. Everyone suggests going there. Best in town. I asked about pain and he says that i can buy this numbing cream, which i am. And that i can show up as stoned as i please, ill be doing that too lol.

Anyway if you could tell me anything about a tattoo in general. Or just one on your wrist. Or one close to cuts or a cover up. That would be awesome and very much appreciated.

I used to be very afraid of needles too, I for some reason just randomly got over it when I started donating blood…. I eventually came to find them quite relaxing. No idea how tattoo needles feel though, like they don’t go nearly as deep…. I found that I only dislike needles when I can’t see them, I’m far more comfortable watching people place needles in me, but others are look away types looking away makes them far more scary for me though. I’m uncertain, maybe find a thing that works for you? Also tattoos are probably painful but probably tolerable pain I’d imagine just seeing that so many people do have tattoos. Good luck xD

Nope cant look. Let’s poke holes in my body…ummm NO. But I cut. I know it’s backwards and fucked up lol. It can’t be anymore painful then cutting can It?
Oh I don’t cut very deep just enough to bleed a little.

No idea :/ I assume it is a much different type of pain at least…. You should be fine though ^_^

Never got a tat but I fucking hate needles too. That’s why I don’t shoot my heroin and also why I haven’t died yet trying to overdose 5 times now snorting it. All the nerves for pain are at the top of your skin. That’s why first and second degree burns hurt but third degree burns don’t hurt at all.

It will hurt a bit but look at all the tattoos out there everyone lived through it!
I don’t have one, but I’ve been through pain before 🙂 I don’t have one because they are permanent.
