Go in Sober
Some people believe that drinking some alcohol or having any kind of drugs will help reduce the pain of tattoo but they’re unaware that it makes this procedure a lot more painful than reducing the pain.
If you’re getting the tattoo drawn after drinking alcohol, the ink won’t stay on your body easily because the flow of blood will be fast as the alcohol makes your blood thinner.
Thus, the tattoo process will become longer and more painful. Also, avoid using the caffeine or over the counter pain killers because they also cause your blood to become thinner. Before you go to the tattoo session, try avoiding coffee, Advil, Tylenol and energy drinks.
Talk to an expert
The satisfaction of the mind is really important for reducing the pain. Consider talking to an expert before you go for the tattoo session. The expert will make you feel comfortable that the session isn’t that much pain as you think. Once your mind is satisfied, you’ll feel relaxed and comfortable and during the session, you’ll not feel enough pain.
