I've always told people that a tat feels like getting an IV, only really fast in and out and it goes on for a while.
Regarding my jeep hurting me, two years ago last summer I was swapping out a Smittybilt XRC bumper on the front of my jeep with an EAG bumper. I put the new bumper on and then like a numbnut reattached my winch BEFORE getting all the bolt holes for the bumper lined up which is pain in the arse to begin with.
Anyway, wrestling with the bumper - and with the winch that pig weighed something north of 130# - shoving both sides back and forth, one time cranking on the right side I somehow shoved the bumper in with my right hand on top of the bumper and my thumb went under the fender on top of the bumper, between the two.
Ever had a pain so bad in your head you're screaming a blood curdling scream but out loud you're not making a noise? And in your head your screaming silently "That REALLY ****ing hurts?!" Didn't know what else to do except just yank my thumb straight out. Thumb came out from having the hell pinched out of it between the fender and the bumper, fingernail stayed with the bumper and fender.
Cussing aside I'm one of those individuals when I'm hurt I get really pissed, kept after that bumper for another ninety minutes 'til I got the sumbitch on, then went in, cleaned up and bandaged my bloody thumb, had a beer, the cold bottle of which felt good on my thumb.
Took about four months for the thumbnail to grow back, but I still have a divot on the top of my thumb in the middle on the thumbnail.
