Welcome to Fired Up Friday, Steve Kaycee’s Friday subpage for Tats What’s Up!

On August 16, 2019, Steve blogged about the session of his 122nd tattoo.

Check it out and enjoy!

“Tattenstein: Part 3”

                                          2014 proved to be a year in which that I had yet to stop or slow down from getting tattooed, as the second Tuesday of July 2014 was projected to be the third day that month in which I would get a finished tattoo. And after getting some breakfast in my belly, along with leaving to go get money from a local Bank Of America, I arrived at Shogun. And as soon as I had arrived, Nick was ready to tattoo me. But before that could happen, the steps of preparing the stencil, prepping the left side of my rib cage/left side of my stomach (the spot where the piece was going) and the application of the aforementioned stencil all had to commence, to which they all eventually did. And after a few minutes of drying time, it was showtime.

The experience pain-wise for this piece was that it was on the verge of ranking right up there as one of my most painful tattoos, ever. But thanks to Jeff (he was hanging out at the shop on his respective day off) grabbing this anti-pain spray called “Hush”, the rest of the experience was actually tolerable. And yes, that included the part of the stencil that was on actual ribs.

After an hour of an uneven pain experience, tattoo number 122 came out awesome. And just like its 121 predecessors, it came out awesome.

After Nick snapped a picture of the piece with my iPhone, he bandaged me up. I then cashed out with him, we then shook hands and finally went our separate ways, with him getting ready for his next appointment and me going out to have lunch at a Subway before getting another tattoo that day.

Tune in 11 days from now to find out what it was.
