Yes it was my first, and it will be my last. Unlike others who have said that it is euforic and they keep going back for the rush, all I felt was pain. I have wanted one for years, so I finally took the plunge. I love my tattoo, absolutely love it, but I will not be getting another.
Funny enough - At the doc's offic just this morning in a WebMD magazine I read that they are now saying different people require different amounts of water. And from person to person, it depends on their level of activity, types of food, weight, you name it. I am on the other end. It is a rare day I don't drink 10 or more 8oz servings of water.
As with everything else in life - we are all the same and yet so different.
I am glad you are not stressing about it. When you are thirsty your body will let you know. 3049 days ago
