1. Denial

No, surely these hundreds of times I am getting stabbed with needles over a long period of time won't hurt that badly.

2. Anger

WHAT?! This actually hurts! Why did no one tell me getting permanent ink on my body would hurt like this.

3. Bargaining

If I can only get through this next little bit of pain, can we take a break? I know this will result in gorgeous art, but at what cost?

4. Depression

That's it. This is how I die. This pain will never end. I will constantly be in pain for the rest of my life. Why did I think this was a good idea?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F18%2F6362541122928057171439069397_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=360&h=56d115beb3bbb3255e05c75986ff836ea917880a0559b5936f20cdd3747866be&size=980x&c=2940955652 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F18%252F6362541122928057171439069397_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D360%26h%3D56d115beb3bbb3255e05c75986ff836ea917880a0559b5936f20cdd3747866be%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2940955652%22%7D" expand=1]

5. Acceptance

I'm done? That's all? Wow, I absolutely love it! That pain was actually nothing. When can I get another?
