I know the subreddit rules say no asking for medical advice, so I hope this question isn't considered that. Please let me know if this violates anything. Also on mobile so I apologize for weird formatting.

I found out recently that when most people get tattoos they kind of numb out after a while and that's why sitting out a 6 hour tattoo isn't a huge pain. Like it starts out a bit stabby and then becomes numbed out once you've had a bit of time. I personally, have the opposite? It starts out painful but at a bearable level, and then feels like picking at a deep scab. That deep, piercing, skin crawly feeling. Like cutting into a cut that's already there. It feels really raw. I usually tap out around 2.5-3 hours because I can't control my muscle spasms and it's impossible to tattoo cleanly anymore.

I am not looking for a diagnosis of any kind, my doctor's are on the case about suspected illnesses, what I'm wondering is about pain management. I know a lot of tattoo communities are very divided on numbing creams and the like, but I was wondering if anyone has any good brands or tricks? I'd like to get more intricate and large tattoos but I just can't handle it.

I'm also concerned about doing multiple sessions because my tattoos seem to scar? I can feel the black lines mostly, they're raised up and look bumpy almost. Kind of like a stretch mark or a keloid. I can try and get a decent picture if anyone's interested. One of my tattoos is definitely stretched out, which could be the cause, but the others are all bumped out as well.

TIA for any help.
