Its all dependent yes.I find single needles more painful, might just be in my head but I feel like the more surface area covered the less concentrated the pain is, also gets more painful the more the area is worked on like first few passes are not so bad but when you're already swollen bloody and tired then any small "touchups" seem to be more painful, but I guess it's all dependant
There are areas that I was getting concerned about because they started to feel a bit sore when that multi-pronged needle was doing highlights and shadows. I noticed as soon as we were finished that I had in fact, started to bleed.
The colour wasn't bad at all, I would say the devil is the highlights/shadows.
@KT-B and others:
For those who are unsure about this I will state the following:
1. The linework felt like he was drawing on me with a BIC ballpoint pen. Almost enjoyable
2. The colour was OK, I felt a bit of that in some areas, basically like putting your finger in 50 degree water. Again some areas felt, pretty damn good.
3. The highlights/shadows was where it started to feel burny and where I started bleeding. The artist did remark that my skin wasn't going to take much more
so he went easier and told me I might have to come back for touch up. Looking at it tonight during aftercare, he's right.
The burn feels like when you go shower, and you've burnt lobster pink in the sun. But a 1/3 less.
Just go with it, ask them to put your favourite music on and you will be fine.
