A neat idea, well to me anyways, would be to make a spell to temporarily give us the effect of a numb, pain-free body. I was watching my brother get his first tattoo on Saturday, and he said it started hurting more by the end of it. I'm just wondering if anyone else thinks this would be cool. We could get a piercing, tattoo, or possibly an injury like from skateboarding. All opinions appreciated!
It does sounds like it would be cool, but I doubt it's possible to do. Two things you can't do with magick is change you're dna or the laws of nature. Attempting to increase your pain threshold or reduce your body sense of feeling would fall under changing dna, so it can't be done, unfortunately.
I think its possible to an extent. Why couldn't you mediate to put your mind in a different place while the piercing is going on? It might not be painless but it would certainly be less painful. Throughout history you see people walk on hot fire rocks and across beds of nails... why couldn't we block out pain for a short time? I think it would be possible :)
that sounds like a great idea and although it's true you can't change your DNA I do think it's possible maybe by using energy manipulation to disturb your senses because last night I was in a deep state of meditation ( which it's when your body goes numb) and I did something wrong when I was done so when I woke up I still felt numb especially my mouth haha just saying it might not be so impossible with the right set of mind
