You know, the two hours I thought "man this doesn't hurt that much at all!" Then by hour 5, when he really started to get down into the details and going over the areas we already did with different colors and such... holy shit, it hurt like a bitch! haha
I'd say the price was pretty fair. The total cost to me was about $375 of computer equipment and he did about 8 hours of work for me plus probably 2 or 3 more to finish it, and another 2 for my friend for a smaller tattoo of a flower and some text.
It is my first... ambitious project to do a freaking 6 or 7 hour long custom tattoo as a first huh? I already have an idea for #2....... but still gotta go back next week to finish this one up.
@da chuan... well, I'm actually also a race track instructor so I think I can comment on this. It varies widely on the person. Unlike other sports, racing also introduces the element of crashing and getting seriously injured for making minor mistakes. Some
people prefer to play it safe and take a while to progress since they don't want to push past the line. Others accept the danger more and crash more, but also get faster much quicker. It took me several years to get to the point where I could do amateur racing
competitively, but I've seen guys do it in just months. Reflexes have little to do with this sport... it's all about being smooth, precise and controlled.
