I’ve been thinking for some time about getting a tattoo.
Somehow Facebook has read my mind and suggested clips from a program called Ink Masters.
The reality show pits contestants against each other in various (tattooing) tasks, the winner becoming Ink Master and $100,000 richer.
Basically, RuPauls’ Drag Race for straight people!
In one episode, tattooing clients ribs was the task.
If you didn’t know, ribs are the most painful place for a tattoo.
One of the tattooists knew the trauma his client would face and gave their client the following advice:
“You can’t take any breaks, if you feel light-headed, cold sweats or whatever, I’ll slow down –
But you can’t stop!
If you do stop halfway through, when you come back to the table it’ll be more painful than it was before.
Do this a couple of times you’ll never come back.
Remember you want this.”
I thought to myself…
That’s not only great advice for tattoos but for fitness too!
