Last night after work I finished my tattoo. My appointment was at 6pm and took another hour and a half, for a total of 3.5 hours of work. It hurt like a mother again, especially on my ribs. Right on the bone as a teeth clincher! I found it worked best to just close my eyes and take deep breathes, try to get myself into some deep mental zone. When that worked I couldn't feel anything. Jeremy, the artist, liked the finished tattoo that he took pictures for his book. This photo was taken just minutes after he finished. I will post another, better, photo in a day or so.
