Relax While Getting a Tattoo

Are you fascinated with tattoos as much as I am?

I am always amazed at different tattoos I see. Some of these are literally beautiful paintings drawn (or etched) into our human skin. In some sense it is a bit morbid, to puncture our own skin in order to preserve an image to our own bodies, but it is also so appealing and attractive.

I have many friends who have desired to get a tattoo for a long time but retreated due to the fear of the pain, sight, or act of getting the actual tattoo. They always said that if they could just distract themselves while getting the tattoo, then they may be able to go through with it. In addition, I have met a few tattoo artists that attest that a distraction to their clients would make their job a lot easier. It would allow them to attend to their job, without the client stalling, freaking out, or fainting out of worry.

What if there was a product out there that would allow an entertaining distraction in a comfortable and savvy manner? There is!

RelaxView Tattoo Pack are video sunglasses that grant a user viewing pleasure in an appeasing and elegant form. In addition to being able to connect to the iPod, Zune, and other media players, RelaxView are compatible with video game consoles such as the Xbox, Wii , PS2 and the Playstation 3. They come with a portable DVD player to watch movies, and a remote for additional convenience.

For those contemplating a tattoo but would appreciate a nice distraction, these sunglasses may do the trick. I can already imagine individuals at tattoo parlors crying or laughing because they are watching their favorite heartbreaking dramas or satiric comedies. Do you think that different clients may end up playing multi-player games against each other during their tattoo sessions? Even better, with all the wireless capabilities, they will end up playing against worldwide adversaries.

Furthermore, additional RelaxView models have been developed for a 3D movie experience, different gaming consoles, dental patient distraction, and more.

Sounds to me like a pretty incredible idea. Wouldn’t you say so?

    I think it’s a cool idea. It doesn´t work as an anesthetic. It just relaxes you a little bit while you are being needled. I’ve heard of many people that really want to get tattoed but they don’t do it because of the pain idea…

    Hi David, Ted, Izabel, and Sierra….thank you for your visit.

    I didn’t have this distraction when I had my tattoos done. It seems like a pretty cool idea for those that wish so. Izabel does have a point though, the pain, fear, and act is actually part of the experience of getting a tattoo.

    Lamest thing I’ve ever heard.

    Aren’t people disassociated enough from living the moment already? Now they have to find something to distract a tattoo which is exactly the place you should be in the moment completely. It’s sad if a girl has to tell you to go read/see Fight Club again.

    Never been one for tattoos myself – I don’t mind them on other people but it has never been appealing to get one myself.

    However, I think this is a pretty cool idea for those who like having tattoos!

    Hi Manila and Neece, thank you for coming.

    @Neece: A pleasure to see you again.
    I agree that for some, it definitely won’t be a distraction, and in your husband’s case…even worse for the artist 🙂

    Well, I don’t think it would be enough of a distraction to get a tattoo, but it sounds pretty awesome to have just for personal amusement.
    I guess I’m just not a tattoo kinda girl.
    Anyway, I’ve watched my husband playing videogames, and he never sat still. Wouldn’t that make it hard for the tattoo artist to work if you’re moving all around trying to race your car or something?
    Now the dentist idea, that might be nice. I hate dentists!
