Comparison


Nah, the ear din't hurt. That's all cart-lage.

The finger hurt. Lady who did it was a gouger. Ya need a gouger for hands or it fades. Like this one, see? But that finger ain't gonna fade.

Ankle's the worst. All bony.

  5. I've never wanted a tattoo myself--the pain would just be an extra reason to avoid one. I liked the voice in this.

  10. Funny coincidence reading this as I'm currently contemplating a tattoo...not on my ankle...that's for sure! I do have a about 7 ear piercings and well, the pain wasn't too bad with that... :)

  14. Love the advice about getting a gouger to tattoo your finger - and something about the voice makes me believe they know exactly what they're talking about!

  15. I have one tattoo. I will never get one again- it was so painful! Right on the hip.
    Good comparison, though.

  16. Fantastic voice. I love the thoughtfulness in it as he considers each tattoo, and the way he addresses the reader ("like this one, see?"). You don't even need the photo, though that's a nice touch. :) Great job! Thanks for linking up with the gargleblaster this week!

  17. Well I wasn't tempted before, but this has well and truly put me off. My bony ankles are wincing.

  18. I remember getting my ears pieced as a teenager. Everyone said, it didn't hurt and I believed it. It was bearable but it stung. Good take on prompt.
