Default How do you get ready for a long sitting?

Just curious how all you guys get ready for a long sitting.

Default Re: How do you get ready for a long sitting?

The longest Ive sat is 8 hours, but most of my tatts are 5-6 hours or so or more.
I get my rest the night before, I like starting at noon, on the weekend when my artist just got to work, is relaxed and going to work on me that day with nothing else booked.
I stay hydrated in the days before. Eat decent before I start the session, I bring drinks, snacks and food with me in a cooler for my session (yes All or Nothing artists and apprentices you can make fun of me here, Short looks at me like Im crazy).
But hey I want to be ready, I carry medicine in case of a headache, or muscle ache from weird positions, I want to be prepared to go as far as my artist wants to go!
I should not interfere with the process, Im just a canvas.

My longest sitting was 3 1/2 hours and that was 11 years ago. I remember bringing my car and the money....

I do have a 4-5 hour one coming up soon. So I should bring snacks and drinks, huh? Do you talk with the artist? Or would that be too distracting?

The last time I was at AON I sat all day with Dave, Bryan, and Chris on my legs. That was all good until I got home and then it all hit me. I have another all day with dave and Chris on my arm and I just wanted some other tips and tricks to make it the whole day.

Thanks for the replys guys.

we talk alot!

I am overboard, probably the only asshole that shows up with all that shizzu, but I dont want anything to stand in the way of great art. Would you?

The last thing that should be a problem is anything related to me.
