    Hey everyone,

    Well I wasnt sure where to put this post as its kind of going off subject, but not really. If that makes any sort of sense?? lol :whistle:

    Im meant to be getting a tattoo soon, maybe in the next month and they usually advise you to have a can of coke for sugar intake, and eat a bar of chocolate, or something like that so ive been told. Well obviously im doing sole source, so I dont really know how to go about it :confused: does anybody have any suggestions?

    Same as above - I've never had anything before any of my tattoos. Are you diabetic or anything that they've recommended that?

    No im not diabetic. A few of my friends have tattoos and they've all been told to have a fizzy drink and a bar of chocolate beforehand so it decreases your chance of fainting lol. xx

    Ive a tattoo also & never heard of that - can't really see why you would feel faint - less you scared of needles ? but then would prob avoid tattoos if that were the case ? ! :)

    Sugar apparently acts as a mild painkiller.
    Having said that i had a tatt on the instep of my foot whilst on ss. It hurt.... But not for long. You could always take a paracetamol just before..... good luck and post the piccys!!!!

    I've heard of that before...you get an adrenalin rush from the pain and the sugar makes sure you don't pass out. It's not really necessary unless you're the kind to get lightheaded. I didn't have anything before getting my tattoo and it was grand.

    I would advise not taking anything that would thin your blood before...like aspirin. My tattoo artist said that's a bad idea because you bleed more.

    Hope you love your new tattoo :D
