I just finished my second tattoo ever. I chose to put the church bars in red on the inside of my ankle. I've got to say, it wasn't the most painful tattoo ever. I found it really easy to ignore the pain by just concentrating on the actual tattoo. I've done one other tattoo previously on myself on my thigh. It was a bit more painful but like I said just concentrating on the tattoo was enough to block out the pain. If any tattoo apprentice out there is holding out on tattooing yourself for fear of pain: just do it! That's all you gotta keep telling yourself. It was a very fun experience though too. I'm glad I did my first tattoo on myself because I didn't have anxiety about doing the tattoo that I would probably have with working on someone else.

Can you give some more detail about the experience? Was there a specific reason you decided on red ink? I'm not an artist so I'm not sure what would be crossing my mind during the self-tattoo. What was on your mind more, the meaning behind the tattoo or focusing on doing a good job?

I've done a couple of tattoos on myself as well. One small heart between my thumb and my index finger and the word "LOVE" in block letters on my forearm. While the latter did not turn out as I planned, the experience was profound.

As you stated, Arun, I could block out all the pain by simply concentrating on the work itself.

My mind was mostly set on the meanings of the tattoos rather than doing a good job. I'm going to have someone go back over my forearm and fix up my mistakes when I have the money.
