When I'm getting a tattoo, I find that it keeps my mind off all the worries and kinda keeps me from excessive thoughts which plague me often and as much as they can hurt, I kinda enjoy that semi-peace...Never been a cutter or anything like that(and won't ever be), but I imagine in some way it's the same/similar kind of appeal. I get a bit frustrated when the artist wants to have ongoing conversations with me though and I can't think that well to reply to them
I always wait til the needle is not going to reply, luckily they have to get more ink often! I've only gotten 3 and the last was about 2 years ago due to limited funds thanks to my SA, but I enjoy getting them and I love the art aspect of them...I think they can be very beautiful. I want a Phoenix from FFVIII next I think, but may have to settle for something smaller for the sake of funds....anyways, how about you guys?
