I know people have different tolerances and stamina when it comes to getting tattooed ( I am a huge pussy when it comes to getting tattooed by the way). I also know the artist can't go forever either. So, I was just wondering. What's the longest amount of time you've spent under the needle? The longest I've spent is 6 hours. Lady of Guadalupe on my arm. With ONE break, 5 minutes long. The whole time was spent on a massage table. At first I thought it was cool, but I'd rather use a chair. After 6 hours my ass hurt more than my arm.
