5 Stages Of Getting A Tattoo

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?

5. Acceptance

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

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.
