I'm thinking of getting my grandfathers name on my forearm but i'm having second thoughts. It was going to be that Led Zeppelin angel...but it seemed to retarded.
the outside line hurt cuz the tat artist used either a 3 or a 1 needle gun.....when they color in/shade in they use atleast 9 needles......Nymphchick said:what the hell!my response got erased well good spot, ya the outside line may hurt, but with mine the inside coloring didn't so good luck with it, follow through. tats are very sexy

shading my tribal was 18....but he had 2 use a 3 need to shade in the "under side" cuz my skin was really thin and the ink was stayin......now that shit hurtUberSkippy said:Stardust is right, the more needles the less pain.
The one on my back was a 14 needle afair. (That's what the artist said, I never saw it myself.) Didn't hurt nearly as much as the 2 needle line gun he used.
