Painful areas to be tattooed

Today was my first session with my tattooist, Ben Boston, this year. He is working on filling out the rest of my torso and upper arms. The main item for today was an outline for the centre of my chest but he began by filling out flower stalks in green. All was well until after more than an hour he worked below my left breast on the ribs over my heart.

Ouch, it hurt. But worse was to come as he moved onto the outline. The sweeps of the lines hurt like hell and I had to take a couple of minutes break in the middle of that. But I braved it through.

Poor Ben is recovering from an attack of shingles by his left eye. He was off work for five days with it and was clearly out of sorts today.
