You may remember that I posted Valentxne recently due to (self-professed) “slut factor“, but she sent in a great photo of her foot sole tattoos of a pair of bikes, done by Brian Mullen of Art Freek in Providence, so I wanted to post her again. I was surprised to find out that these tattoos were over a year old now and not retouched! Because they healed so well, I asked her if Brian did anything special to get them to hold, and she replied,
I messaged Brian and asked if he used a special technique. His response: “Yeah, it’s called not sucking.” Ha! It hurt something awful, probably the most painful tattoo I’ve ever gotten (including inner lip, hands, back of thigh, elbow, shin, chest, etc). Plus he was telling a story while he was doing it, so he would stop every few seconds because he talks with his hands, so it took forever. It wasn’t ticklish at all, except maybe when he was applying the stencil. But I’m glad he was so heavy handed with it, otherwise they would look like the sides of my hands, which are about six months old and look like shit.
