Just a heads up for whoever was asking about tattoo numbing stuff, Dr. Numb before and Vasocaine during (which can be re-applied every hour so hopefully wont dip back to agony), I got the vasocaine on ebay for £50 a bottle, and the three tattoo artists I wrote to about using it said they had completely no problem.

Vasocain does nothing after using a numbing cream.

If I where you I would give the numbing cream a miss take some codine and start using the vasocain after a few hours.
If you use the cream 5 hours out of your nine will be unbearable. Honestly your better off without it.

Codeine is always a good shout, regardless of the situation.

Agreed, game changer. Friend used co-codamol before his back piece, breezed it.

I’ve never considered using anything but have only tattooed my shoulders, moobs on chest and arms so far.

When I can afford I’d like to start back and ribs, that might change my mind.

Anyone had their achilles area done? Got a symmetrical design planned; how's the pain down there?

I have a full leg sleeve (look back a couple of pages) that comes down to my ankle Achilles, that area on the back was fine.
