Tattoo and pain talk

It might be interesting to discover how many James Braid Society members have tattoos ...or are contemplating getting one, or more.  Certainly this body art is increasingly popular. 

Recent estimates suggest around 30 per cent of the population – nearly one third – already sport one.

In addition to his regular practice he has been working on a book about hypno-inking with Australian hypnotist Christopher Phoenix.  And he is a trainer and assessor for Karl Smith and UK Hypnosis Academy.


More than that some people are coming round for a second time, with laser removal to prepare a blank canvas!  I

f you don’t have personal experience you may wonder how painful it is to endure repeated skin pricks. 

Our November 2018 speaker Benjamin Ryan has a better understanding than many and what is more important, he makes it easy for people to experience tattooing/ 

Of course many members have there own techniques for analgesia and anaesthesia – yourself includd.

But those who attended our November meeting were able to discover how the power of hypnosis cab be put to effective practical use in the field of tattooing.
