I fell in love with you the way the rain falls, slowly then all at once.“For him" series #17
I’d be happy to share my experience! Fortunately, I have a couple of artists I know & go to, so asking for it wasn’t as awkward, but it’s still weird. Tattoo artists are pretty professional so they might give you attitude or something, but I can’t imagine they’d be awful about it. Also, for the tattooing & everything, my artist completely blocked off his little section so no one else saw.
The tattoo itself is probably like…. a 3-4 as far tattoo pain goes (compared to ribs, chest, arm, etc). It’s small, on fleshy tissue-y skin, & mostly shading. My only problem was when my artist started going over it for the 3rd time or so, it definitely got tender. Didn’t go over my areola though, so no worries!
I do have one important tip though: Don’t put bandaids on your nipples!! Ok, anyone who knows about tattoos will tell you that & I even knew that, but it’s a tender spot… Ever had hard nipples that get sore from rubbing on clothes? Yeah, kinda what the healing feels like. No pain, no gain ;)

You will very soon realise I don’t constantly post tit pics so you can unfollow meow
If you’re not here for the tits, carry on.
