- Tiana Laveen - featured in the boxset, 'Scandalous Heroes'

The man was right. She hadn’t even noticed that, as he continued to speak to her over the music, she’d heated a bit to his touch.

She cleared her throat. “You said anything worth having is painful, or something like that. What did you mean by that?” she asked as she glared at him in the mirror.

“I mean, the good things in life sometimes hurt at first. Like childbirth. The end result is wonderful. And like…oh, never mind.” He smirked and stuck his head closer to her, as if trying to hide himself.

“No,like what?” she begged, still needing the distraction.

“It’s not something that would be appropriate for me to say to a customer, so let’s just move on and—”

“No.”She shook her head. “Come on, you can tell me. I want to talk. I need to talk or I am going to go crazy.”

Julian sighed, his shoulders slumped as if she’d asked him something deeply personal, yet his eyes gleamed with mischief.

“Alright.What I was going to say, it is kind of like the first time a woman has sex, her first time being penetrated.” He turned away, avoiding her gaze, as if slightly shy about his own admissions, though he said it with confidence.

“Mmmm.” She smirked and shook her head. “Never thought about it like that.”

“Well, there are similarities. Like, the needle going into your body is a type of violation. That first time you felt the needle hit your skin, it hurt, but now, look, ten minutes later, you’re okay, riding the wave of pain. Once it is all over, your first lover or, in this case, your artist — if he is any good and cares about you and the quality of his work — will make sure that though aspects of this experience may have been unpleasant, you are pleased and satisfied in the end.The final product is your completed tattoo, your climax, so to speak.

“Some people believe you can’t have pleasure in the midst of pain, but that’s not true. The same nerves are being used to deliver either message to your mind and that is why a very thin line separates sensations of pleasure and pain. Our brains tell us which feeling we are receiving, but with a few adjustments,pleasure and pain can turn into their total opposite and what may hurt one person, may make another person feel completely euphoric. Additionally, should you decide to get any future tattoos, you’d want to return to me…as your first tattoo artist, to do it again and again and again.”

“And why would that be?” she egged him on, feeling even more relaxed the longer he spoke. She could feel her eyes hooding as he lulled her away somewhere illicit and wicked.

“Because it would have gotten good to you...” He paused and looked at her through the mirror, as if trying to read her mind. “…And you know I’d be happy to give a repeat performance, hopefully better each and every time…”

Her f*****g groin was quaking. Did this joker really have to compare what he was doing with sex? And he did it so damn eloquently...
