Had my third upper body tattoo today. Whenever I get tattooed or post tattoo I have pains in my feet, calf's and hips. During the tattoo I have to keep moving them then post they are sore and achy. Anyone else feel phantom pains in places other then their tattoo location? The artist said she experiences similar, thinks it's nervous system post Adrenalin

Just giving this a bump for you.

I've had the sorts of pains that you describe. My last tattoo was quite a few years ago now. It is on my lower back and I had sitting pains going right down both legs. I thought it was nerves that were connected

Glad it's not just me! It's such an annoying pain, been pacing around all day

shooting pains, not sitting pains!

How is it today?

Not as bad but still tender. Tattoo on the other hand is absolutely fine.
