paint more often and it goes away...

 

it will be okay in a day or so...

 

and the paint you were using was probaly rusto... which is harder to press down on than say ole krylon..

one time when i hadnt played bball in a long time and went back to it..the tip of my index finger (which gives the ball its backspin), basically started to peel off. the skin became all raw and just started to look like it was rotting away. but i was fine in a few days - you will be too.

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!

 

ok i was just pretty scared...i came back from painting and my indexfinger and thumb would not move. i tried moving them but they were like superstill...i think cause it was really cold, they could have actaully froze but i dont know. i was just thinking to myself, "what the fuck?" ok ill stop talking now about my frozen fingers. ha

Guest cover .

its like basically losing your graffiti virginity .

man. i remember when that happened to me.. my finger was numb for like 3-7 days at least.

 

oh and i guess there are some other virginities in graff.. like getting arrested.. but .. its ok.. it takes either a smart writer or a completely stupid motherfucker to get over. i say.. just be smart.

 

oh.. and if you continue to hurt in your finger.. try using german tips.

if your fingers getting tired and you cant press the tip anymore, that just takes a little more finger strength, which comes with more work...if your finger goes numb its just too much pressure on your finger and its not used to it.....it can last for more than a month (on the indexfinger at least)....the more you paint and use your finger, youll notice it goes away.
