    Just started a sleeve, the artist told me to wait 4 days before going back to the gym to avoid infection. I was thinking of going before that and just wearing a long sleeve shirt.

    What did you bros do when you got tatted?

    The sacrifice of getting tattoos. Just part of the drill. It's not going to kill you.

  13. I recently got two on my back and didn't lift for a few days and then just did some workout where pressure was not on my back. Now it's been a few weeks and I can't even tell it is there. It looks sick though. :o
