Anyone got any traditional hand poke tattoos?
I've got a decent amount of tattoos but am finding my pain threshold waning as I get older.

Found a dude that does them (he actually just designed the new Fast Times Shop shirts) and pretty keen, wanted to get some info regarding pain, timeframes etc.
Looking at filling in a few spots on the arm but eventually wanna get something on the old noggin.

I think if you rub lidocaine into your arm it'll reduce the pain to a more manageable level but some brands leave a filmy residue and you can't do stick and poke on it.

I stick n poked my own foot a couple months ago - it sucked then it fell out haha
I had my buddy poke a scythe on my knee, its solid but it took a fuckload more time than a machine would have.
 if pain is the only thing putting you in the pokey direction i wouldnt bother ..the pain of either method is temporary

go for the one you think looks better dude cos at the end of the day thats what matters most

I did some stick and pokes on my legs a few years ago and they are still pretty dark. It took forever and definitely hurt more than a machine. I was probably going to hard though since I was worried itíd fall out.  It may be less painful than my experience from a professional but I still think you should just go with what you think would look best. Especially if the spots youíre filling arenít that big.

I have these. Jason Molina tattoo I gave myself. Went over it like 3 times. pain was fine. I know it's super sketchy. I'm good with that. I was indeed drunk the first time around. The one below is a very drunken attempt at a cigarette that a mate did. Even sketchier. Fast Times you say. You in AUS? If so, Melbourne? If you are, I know of a very good stick and poke artist. She's pretty incredible. This is her. https://www.instagram.com/lucyctattoos/
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

I have a hand poke on the outside of my bicep that's about 2x3 inches and includes some shading, detailed bits, and color blocks. Took about 2-3 hours I think and I was relaxed the entire time. A handful of times I felt a touch of pain, but I was actually bummed when the artist finished because it felt sort of good. It's my only tattoo, so I don't have anything to compare it to, and I'm not sure if my experience is the norm.

I mean I've got a fair amount of hand poke tattoos but I don't know if they're traditional? They're traditional in the sense that they look like shit (I love them).

Anton if tattooing in the states ever gets back to normal and youre doing a guest spot in NYC keep me posted. Your work is amazing man, definitely down to grab something.

im covered in american traditional pieces ranging from complete bullshit to a few decent pieces. Have a couple homies who got into it at a young age. been getting meaningless tattoos in kitchens and well established shops both since 06. still got some space on my right arm and ill do something on the back of my head at somepoint.

managed to stay away from stick and pokes. some people have cool ones and in recent years especially on social media ive seen the bar raised for sure. but for the most part nah not for me.

havent gotten a single tattoo since i got clean though so actually having to deal with the pain again should be fun.

I've got a lot of dumb tattoos, but my favorite is when I was blacked out and we all decided to get stick and pokes. Everyone else got like smiley faces or whatever and pretty much instantly got them covered up. I decided to be a champ and keep mine. I've met Frank Gerwer a few times at I have no way of showing him this without sounding like a stalker.



I also may or may not have a skate warehouse tattoo that I really like.

ya man, similar situation. Homie started apprenticing in 04 and I let him go to town. back then everyone was on OCs and most of the work wasn't very good so we're in the process of designing a traditional cover up(s) for my front body- belly rocker, hip to hip piece, chest piece and maybe the light whole rib piece another dude did on dope that looks like shit. I threw the ideas of some sorta snake/cobra coiled down on the bottom, head up top. Maybe a wolf head. Traditional hasn't really been my thing but it will look clean covering up

I really hope that its gonna be possible to travel again soon! Im fortunate enough that I've been able to work during the whole pandemic (living in Sweden with no lockdowns). But it starting to get real stale to just work in my city.

I think if you rub lidocaine into your arm it'll reduce the pain to a more manageable level but some brands leave a filmy residue and you can't do stick and poke on it.
Just got this done on my thigh a few weeks ago. took about 10 hours

stick and poke hurt way less in the start, but after getting poked for about 5 hours it gets really uncomfortable and sensitive. in the second session we put some lidocaine on it after a couple of hours to see if it helps with how sensitive it started to feel and it did leave a film on the skin making it longer to poke so i wouldnt recommend, just take breaks and breath in deep.
smaller tattoos might be a better idea for a poked tattoo,and even though im really stoked about how it turned out and about the experience i really dont want to sit for 10 hours again any time soon.

Got my ribs tapped in Thailand about ten years ago. In my top five most painful tattoos. Stick and pokes take forever and fuckin hurt. Stick with machines and deal with it. All tattoos suck. Pain is momentary, stoke is eternal.

Where were the other 4?

When I got my chest done last year, I originally was going to get my ribs and chest tattooed but I backed out like bitch. Like I just convinced myself that I couldn't do that much ink around my ribs area. I also feel the last couple of tattoos I got hurt more and in areas that I didn't really think it would. Wonder if getting older has to do with my pain tolerance diminishing.

*TLDR tattoos fuggin hurt
Haha. They donít get any easier. Everything on the torso is the worst.
No particular order-
On the center of my torso I have a coat of arms that is very black. Three sessions, second one I had a chest cold and homie was hammering at my sternum. I tapped after 45 minutes. The floating ribs feel atrocious.
Sides of hands. Had to get em done twice as the first session fell out and(at least for me) it hurts way worse going over a tattoo. Even though it was around a half hour it was straight misery. On the second session, after he finished, he had to go over one of the first lines which is on the side of my pinky knuckle. Three of the worst seconds of my life.
I have a large Pharaohís Horses on my stomach that goes beneath the belt line. Insanely tender and made my guts feel gross. Put four sessions on that one. Stupid.
Got a pirate ship taking up my entire shin when I was like 21. Also very black. Dude was super heavy handed and a chain smoker. Took a smoke break every half hour. Each time itíd be more swollen and raw raw. By the time he busted out the rake for the heavy black, I was like half an inch swollen. Only time Iíve cried from a tattoo. Took four hours when it couldíve taken two.
