Perceived as a symbol of rebellion, a firm statement about ones personality it attracts many. At the same time traditional disadvantages are fading away. Removal is possible thanks to the latest laser technologies and new ink sorts. The hurdles left, the time it takes and the expected pain during the tattoo process, have also been lowered lately. Distraction from this focus on pain and time with video glasses that deliver a true audiovisual cinema experience, now opens the door of the tattoo shop also for less tough guys.

Time and painkiller
"The most difficult thing about tattooing is that the tattoo artist works on a living canvas", says Rytch Soddy, a successful English tattoo artist and one of the owners of Sith Tattoo Studio. "Getting a tattoo without feeling any kind of pain is an illusion, but if we can facilitate to get the customers' focus away from pain towards pleasure, we should definitely do it". "The tattooing process can take from one to even more than eight hours when a complex drawing is involved". A good pair of video eyeglasses is a compelling idea and let me concentrate on my work of art without spending too much attention in trying to maintain the customer at ease". "My customers want to remember my sweat work, not my sweat words", summarizes Rytch Soddy.
