“Going For Two More At The Sho(gun): Part 3”

                           Before the day of covering up that monstrosity of a tattoo idea that was on the side of my left hand, I was at 79 tattoos heading into the third Thursday of March 2014. But because of that aforementioned cover-up that made what would have been my 79thtattoo null and void, I headed into my second multi-tattoo day at Shogun at 78 tattoos instead. And after having a meal at a local Taco Bell, I arrived at Shogun. And as soon as I had arrived, Matt was ready to tattoo me. But before that could happen, the process of preparing the stencil, prepping the outer left hand area near my thumb (the spot where the piece was going) and applying the aforementioned stencil all had to commence, to which they eventually did. And after a few minutes of drying time, it was showtime.

The experience pain-wise for this piece was that it was by far the least painful of the hand tattoos that I have gotten to this point. However, it also hurt a little bit more than both the Phillies “P” and “Bone” tattoos since the hand hurts more than the forearm. But the tattoo was a small one, thus making for a quick session.

After 10 minutes of feeling like that I was being stung by a wasp, tattoo number 79 was a wrap. And just like its 78 predecessors, it came out awesome.

After snapping a picture with my iPhone, Matt bandaged me up. I then cashed out with him, shook his hand, and made my way down to Tom room’s.

To be continued.
