As promised......

On Thursday I went in the the ink shop for more time in the chair of pain/happiness. I was set for 3 hours but came out to almost 4, which I am setting as my pain threshold! To date this has been the most painful of all tattoos. Mainly because when it comes to shading and coloring the same area will be hit over and over again. And as I look back the pain itself was not that big of a deal, pain comes and pain goes. And by the time it is all over you wont even remember the pain...only the fact you have some awesome cool ink on you!
But I do want to note 2 things I witnessed while I was there:
Two older women came in wanting to get some ink done....TODAY! But they were not really sure what they wanted, only that they wanted something today. They had all kinds of time restrictions on when they wanted it done. I mean, I know you have kids and that we all work on tight time schedules....but when dealing with tattoo artist they work on in whole different world. Yes Tattoville might be a bit expensive and work on their own time but....a good tattoo is never cheap and a cheap tattoo is never good. Well, in the end they left without getting anything done because they did not want to wait. The guy that was going to work on them was getting his shit together but again, they work at their own pace...don't rush someone who is about to spend the next few hours drilling you with needles over and over again.

While I was in the chair the guy that greets you and gets all your info comes over to my guy, who's name is Reverend James....but Reverend will do..., and asked him in a hushed voice how much he would charge and if he was will to tattoo some guys......junk. I was trying not to laugh in fear of moving my arm but I did anyway.....This guy was serious, he wanted a star tattooed on his PENIS! The Reverend did not even bat an eye, and said:
'$750, 350 for the 'handling' charge and the rest for the actual work. If I am going to spend that much time holding some dudes shit I am getting paid.'
And with that the would be Johnson ink man left. I asked him if he had ever done one before he said no but he had pierced about a half a dozen wieners in the past. I almost lost my mind....he shoved giant needles through someones cyclopes and then had them pay him for it! I swear there are some sick people out there....and I want to meet them!

And 4 hours later we have me:

It does not seem like a lot for 4 hours but believe the only breaks he took where 2 smoke breaks and that was it. I needed no breaks, my job was to sit still, any breaks that where needed were for him alone.

After that I went home, washed it and started on the after care of my new ink. It has been sore as shit these past few days. Of which I will be posting pictures of our trip to Lancaster PA, to see Thomas the Engine and to watch in amazement that at the Amish lifestyle!
I seemed to have misplaced the cord for the camera to the pc but I know it is some where in the mess of a house we have at the moment. We will be digging ourselves out of it tonight so I hope it turns up.....until then...who is next to get some ink?

Tiny's Tattoo's in Philly is a place where I saw a PHOTO of a tat he did on the head of a guy's johnson... It was a fly. I asked Tiny (I was there with a buddy who was getting some filler-color in some work he'd had previously) How much something like that would cost... Because it was only a fly, actual size. Tiny told be $1,000. $999 for "handling" and $1 for the ink.

There are some really sick folks out there.

Cyn said...

Nice ink!

Mimi said...

Hubby is dying for more ink. Finances suck or I would have him all tattooed up. He got his first after we were married and his second for his birthday last December. I wonder what they would charge for handling on my boob, that's where I want a tattoo. Your tat looks great.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

Imagine all that pain on your arm on your "junk". Eeek

Breigh said...

Looks awesome! I can't wait to see the finished product. Looking at it made me cringe though, the inside of the upper arm is such a sensitive area, gah!

Martini said...

I think a lot of people don't know how tattoos work. Those women obviously didn't do any research into it. Probably thought you just stick a piece of paper over your bicep, and stick a wet cloth on it for 60 seconds. ha.

Shari said...

That is a sweet tattoo!!! :) Come on, Honkie, you telling me you'd never get your junk pierced?

Mimi said...

I wonder if the guy that got the fly tattooed on his penis, really got a pecker gnat.

honkeie2 said...

D: 31...damn ready for a sleeve yet?

PB: that is actually a pretty cool idea!

PJ: You are alive!!!!!

carie: as much as I do love tattoos I will never touch that area!

rangerT: see my guy isnt the only one!

cyn: thanks for stopping by I will have to check you soon!

mimi: have him put $10 aside every week, it might take a while but in the end it will be worth it. And for boobie ink I think they give discounts! haha on the guy also said it would have sucked more if it was a tiny penis, nothing to hold on to lol!

MomT: I was and it made me sick!

breigh: it is....oh it is!

martini: NJ is such a rushed place that people have to idea of how to take a momment and wait. Its either now or never in NJ!

shari: Not in a million life times, but I am seriously thinking of getting my tongue done.

Shari said...

Oh, the tongue would be hot! I bet your wifey would love it! :)

..."And as I look back the pain itself was not that big of a deal, pain comes and pain goes. And by the time it is all over you wont even remember the pain..."

The same can be said about childbirth.

The tattoo looks really good. I like that blue. It reminds me of the time Angel got the tattoo of my name on his arm (early into our marriage..) and it's the same bright blue...although, not so bright anymore.

I won't be getting any tattoos. I've thought about it but I don't think it's me.
