    And not only that, but after you're all done, you've got a permanent mark of what an idiot you are to carry w/ you all through life.
    Just don't do it!

    He's also stupid as fuck. It's embarrassing that 18 y.o young men in the world's most advanced country can be this immature - and remain so well into their 30s. Yecch!

    No idea but he could be high IQ. Actually that looked more like some sort of psychological pathology than a mere matter of maturity, though in time he might learn to better control it, but maybe never entirely so. To me that looked physiologically based.

    Though frankly, without a back story, I don't know if the entire thing was bullshit because the tattoo had already progressed pretty far into it. How did it get that far with that behavior? Something attempted a few times? And then if so, his friends probably knew what his reaction would be to have filmed it so that's a little douchey.

    I don't know what will be the affect of all this shown on video now. And this is just a minor intrusion into this guy's life. Imagine going for a job interview after displaying that lack of control. And even this is minor compared to not just all the dead bodies we see that were never before shown but now we see killing in action.

    By that sometimes I feel like my brain's being tattooed. I scream too.

    We all have our own pain threshold but I spoke with about 50 people before I got my ink and the consensus was... "Tattoos hurt like hell ...the whole time." So I went in knowing that and can confirm that they hurt. My outline hurt bad and then I was able to get to a mental place where it is tolerable but painful. My headphones helped some because I was able to block out the buzzing noise. But when he filled in the tattoo, especially around the armpit... jesus christ in heaven... I swear I lost about 5 lbs in sweat.

    For me it was TOTALLY worth it though. I friggin love my tattoo and smile at it everyday. I do think you should wait to get your ink until you find a design that has meaning to you.

    Oh, and DON'T BE A DICK TO YOUR ARTIST.

    Kudos to you sir, for being the voice of tolerance in this thread!

    I have a couple tattoos. They aren't for everybody. And just because they aren't for you does not make all individuals who get them idiots. Yes, there are some who do it for less than ideal reasons. But you have to think long about what you can live with for the rest of your life and it is not a decision to be taken lightly.

    Before I got my first tattoo, I spent six years deciding whether or not to do it. I finally decided to get it and have no regret about it. My second and largest piece which spans my left arm, shoulder, upper back, and chest was a couple years in the making. Getting the tattoos were not for the world, but for me. The value and meaning runs deep for me.

    They do cause pain, but everyone has a different level of pain tolerance. I have suffered worse and find tattooing to be mind numbing and methodical. It is a small representation of what the human body is capable of enduring. From the sounds to the strokes. I have sat for 6+ hours in the chair and find myself napping.

    The guy in the first video isn't a true representation of what it is like to get a tattoo. If you look the video up on YouTube, his brother posts more ridiculous videos revolving around a number of things. Based off what I have seen they do videos just to get followers.

    High??? How about mega-maintenance?

    Incidentally, I got a medical alert tattoo some months ago, that I mentioned here in another thread. On the underside of my wrist, which can be kinda sensitive.

    I took some off-the-counter pain pills about an hour before, my first tattoo, I didn't know what to expect. Well, it was nothing. I spent the whole time chatting casually with the artist and his assistant.

    I told myself it was gonna be like a bunch of pinches, or needle sticks as when you get a shot or have blood drawn. And if all these other people can do it, then I can do it, too.

    Well, I need hardly have bothered fortifying myself. As I said, it was the most minor of pains. Secure in the knowledge they're not killing you, a very common procedure with women & men, and knowing it will end shortly, it's a snap.

    I remember my first one, simple small barbed wire across bicep. I didn't get underneath arm cause it pinched horribly, very sensitive, soft skin, close to the armpit. Felt dizzy afterwards but they said that was normal because of the adrenaline build up, expected pain threshold before and during the tattoo application. They said to immediately get some sugar in the system, such as a soda or cookies to counter act the adrenaline affect, your first tattoo is always the worst, not sure how your body is going to react, this guy over reacted, especially on the upper arm, the easiest place to get one icon_lol.gif
