First time for everything. -

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.
