10 Ways to Cope With Tattoo Pain – Client Version

Tattoos hurt. What can you do to cope with that pain?

Regardless of your best buddy who has skin like granite, tattoo pain is real.

Every hour take a 5-minute break to rest and adjust your eyes and allow the client to move about. At 3.5 hours, let them get a good meal and hydrate. This simple process will help in people sitting 9+ hours consistently.

This process isn’t to be broken up for phone calls, text messages, social media, cigarettes, or consultations. Set up long appointments with the full intention of that tattoo being done your only goal for the day. Do not get interrupted or sidetracked. Focus on your client and what they are going through to complete a marathon session or that short 2-line session that gives you so much grief.
