Pain is Relative?

I was tattooing on a 17-year old client. (Yes, 17.) She had a band-aid on her arm. She asks her mother to take it off of her, which she does, with a yank. The girl says “Oww!” The mother says “You’re getting a tattoo, and that hurt?”

I giggled.

Pain is both relative, and caused by relatives.

Until next time...
