Can hypnosis work to relieve the discomfort and pain of getting a tattoo? Yes, it can!
I have had an idea for a tattoo that I wanted to use to help induce hypnotic trance easily in my clients. So, this has been a year in the making. I did not want just any tattoo artist so I set out on a journey for the Universe to provide me with the perfect artist and the perfect tattoo. My intentions to the Universe were answered in so many ways.
My requirement was that it needed to be someone who specialized in mandalas and to my surprise I found John Sultana at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn, NY. I met John a year ago and gave him my deposit. I knew the elements I wanted, and he came up with several incredible designs. I liked his work because he works only in black ink and his shading. His artistic techniques and abilities are stellar.
John had spent some time years ago studying to be a Buddhist monk so he was a perfect match, sent from the ethos of the Universe to create a wonderful hypnotic trance tattoo that will last me a lifetime.
The Elements of the Tattoo
First it had to be a mandala. A mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. In common use, “mandala” has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically—a microcosm of the universe.
The dragonflies represent self-realization. They have been symbolic for centuries, across many cultures. The eye of providence in the center, just as on the dollar bill, represents the all-seeing eye of God. It also represents the third eye of enlightenment.
The aerial view of the tattoo is the pinecone and it represents the pineal gland which is where many believe our subconscious mind can be programmed.
The Lotus flower meaning is shared across several cultures. The Lotus slowly emerges from a pond or muddy water over a three-day period and then blooms in the morning until mid-afternoon. In Buddhism, the lotus flower rising and blooming above the murk to symbolizes enlightenment and spiritual awakening.
(I wonder if you are already creating your own trance as you think about the meanings and symbols!)
As you can see this is a very powerful piece of symbolism, designed to help induce a perfect hypnotic trance every time.
Hypnosis for Tattoo Pain: The Hypnotist gets Hypnotized with Glove Anesthesia
I am fortunate to have a wonderful colleague and friend who is an incredible hypnotist. He has a long history of not only working closely with many individual clients, but is also a well renowned stage hypnotist, hypnosis teacher, and motivational public speaker. His name is Dan Candell.
You can see Dan do his hypnosis with me at dancandell.com. Using hypnosis via tele-video (I was on my cell phone with a set of earbuds at the tattoo parlor), Dan did a wonderful hypnosis session with me using a technique called “glove anesthesia,” which can be used to temporarily numb specific parts of the body.
His use of hypnotic suggestions and post hypnotic suggestions were wonderful and worked fantastically!
He told me my arm was a mannequin arm that someone was using a sharpie marker on. He also told me I would only feel slight pressure, which I did. Then he also told me it would rapidly heal. (The above picture is after 3 days, showing amazingly rapid healing!) He also told me I would have no discomfort or pain after it was over.
Wow! He was spot on with all of it!
