However, for someone with the will to have the best memories inked on the body, the pain is nothing to fear. Most first timers may find the pain unbearable, but with time, it becomes easy to tolerate. There are those who say the process did hurt even on their tenth tattoo.
Dialogue three, how much does it cost to have a tattoo.

The design of the tattoo also determines the cost; a bigger tattoo will use more ink and take more time, thus higher charges as compared to a small tattoo.
Dialogue four, how do I take care of the tattoo.
