For me it felt essentially like being scraped....it hurt like HELL at times, but most times it was a little more than uncomfortable. Afterwards it felt like a bad sunburn when something brushed againt it and a bruise if I bumped it. Not mad at all. I also found that the better the artist, the less pain/scabbing you get afterwards. Friends of mine developped full scabs, whereas since I went to a very reputable studio, I had little to no scabbing, which was awesome!
If a man is talking in the woods, and there is no woman there to hear him, is he still wrong?
