Zone into Zen.
One of the best ways to ignore the pain is to zone into something that will distract you. Try zoning into the song being played on the stereo, the conversations in the waiting area, or just make a list of crazy things you want to do within the next year. We suggest trying yoga before going in for a long tattoo session. Clearing your mind and focusing on your breathing is a great way to calm yourself and ignore the pain during a tattoo session. Make sure to keep it Zen!
