Wild 1st pass on Chesters Chest; an unfortunate vessel meeting it's demise from the unforgiving crushing blows of the Kraken's tentacles. Had a lot of fun working on this one. It didn't hurt that Cheziree sits like a buddhist monk on a spiritual retreat atop the Himalayas. If you're getting big, detailed tattoos in painful spots. Come correct, be like Chett. Seriously though, just taking a few small steps can ensure you have the best session!
1.Eat a good meal beforehand! Your body WILL shut your ass down if your blood sugar is low and it is shocked by the trauma of a tattoo, and I cant guarantee not to draw dicks on you.
2.Bring headphones! Watching or listening to whatever you want will help create the most comfortable environment for you to be tattooed in.
3.Long and controlled breaths. Getting tattooed is an intense and sacral ritual. It requires a lot out of you to handle the levels of pain sometimes associated with certain areas of the body. A simple practice in meditation and breathing goes a long way.
