Remy reveals his response to the pain of getting tattooed

In a video posted to his Instagram feed, Remy appeared shirtless, with his impressive collection of inkings in clear view. He revealed that he's had so many tattoos that he doesn't really feel the pain anymore.

"To be honest with you, I don't even really think about the pain during or after or before or at any point anymore," he explained to his fans. "I've had too much of it, and you just don't even think about it anymore."

"Like, it's a non-factor for me. The only thing that I'm thinking about is the progression and sometimes the healing if I am getting work done on my hands or palms or feet or something."

"But realistically the pain is just a non factor for me, and it's just the price of admission," Remy said.
