First time for everything. - May 29th 2011, 03:24 AM

So, I went to go and get a tongue piercing at this tattoo place that used to have a piercing employee. i went and asked them. Their site hadn't been changed and I thought that they would have that person still working. Well, turns out they quit a few weeks ago. I found out that a small tattoo would be fifty. I decided to go ahead and get one since I was there.

The person was super nice and it was a very neat place. The needle looked sterile and the artist was very clean herself, except for the many tattoos. I felt safe, which isn't a normal thing for me. I didn't really get nervous or anything. She just kept hitting the nerve that was in my ankle, considering that is where I had it done. It is a small paw print.

The during factor was more like a tickle than anything. It was a pretty exciting.

Now, after. It hurts.

I'm wondering if anyone has tips for making it hurt less.

It's a fresh tattoo, it's bound to hurt. I'm heavily tattooed and nothing really takes the pain completely away. Try ibuprofen or advil. It's the only thing I've tried that makes a dent in it and it helps with swelling. When I got my whole arm below my elbow done it took away the swelling and took the edge off pain wise for the next few days.

Yeah. I've already taken advil. 3 caps already. It is safe I promise. It still hurts a bit, but it is fine for now.

Another thing, mine is red around it. I've never gotten a tattoo, so I don't know if that is normal. Is it?

Hey, I'm going to move this to the tattoos section of the site since I think you'll get more answers there

I've never had a tattoo myself so I'm not sure if you're allowed to do this but have you tried an ice pack?

It's bound to be red, you've just had it tattoo but eventually the redness will fade, the pain will go and it'll be completely fine

Redness is normal and will be there for a week or so. I usually have to take 4 200mg advil/ibuprofen anything less and it has no effect on me.
