Fear of roller coasters…HELP please?

I am going to Wild Adventures on Saturday and i have a fear of roller coasters but i REALLY want to go on one. I mean like one time me and my mom were in Miami and i went on this HUGE wooden roller coaster and i felt like i was going to die…BUT when i got off it was such a rush even though i was crying (i was 8), i realized i wanted to do it again later when we got home.

But what should i do then? Im SO terrified of them and i know nobody will go with me because my mom is also scared and her boyfriend just doesn’t like them, period.

But my mom agreed to do it with me once just because i want to even though she doesn’t.

Sooo how should i start??? The thing im super terrified is the feeling in my stomach. I mean that time in Miami i closed my eyes and just wished it was over but i also remember i didn’t really like that feeling at the time.

But i always go on rides just not scary ones. I admit i do go on kiddy roller coasters. Like we were in Universal Studios once and i went on this kiddy one called Woody Woodpecker and i then i remember i wished i had enough guts to go on bigger ones because i remember thinking how that one was not scary at all.

SO I don’t know what to do?? How should i start??? Also, if you have ever been to wild adventures, what roller coaster should i start from? Something KIddy but not TOO kiddy just enough to build up to go on the scariest maybe? :)

By the way, what does the feeling in your stomach feel like when you’re going down the hill? Also, is it true that the first time its more intense and then later its not???

Im 14 by the way. :)
by the way im not really scared of safety or anything. Im not scared of heights either. If not the intense feeling stomach i get, i would get on everyone of them

I rode a lot of rollercoasters growing up! One thing I can say is that, even though I love rollercoasters, they scare the CRAP out of me. Sometimes I have to close my eyes on the way up the hill because I’m so freaked out!

It’s true, what they say about being courageous–that it’s not about not experiencing fear, but rather about doing the things that frighten you even though you’re frightened! I never feel very good when I step onto a rollercoaster train, even though I know I am going to have a good time… Just as soon as the train starts falling ^^;;

The bad parts are the line and the journey up the hill. After that, you will be having too much fun to feel scared. But before hand, do not fight with your fear, or try to get it to ‘go away,’ rather just WAIT passively for it to leave on its own ^w^

I hope this has helped!

William asks…

why don’t tattoo artists use computers for design and outline stencils?

Never got a tattoo so maybe im wrong in assuming this but I was just watching Miami Ink for the first time out of curiosity and was wondering why tattoo studios (not just miami ink but other shows, youtube videos, etc.) use pen/pencil and paper to draw their stencils instead of the computer? Why not use illustrator and photoshop which allows for cleaner and crisper vector lines, allows for saving of files and resizing on the fly and adjustments without having to worry about ripping the tracing paper, etc.?

From what I understand, a client comes in and asks for a tattoo. For example, a butterfly. Then the artist opens up a book and asks them to choose one or the client brings a design in. Then the artist asks if they want any customization to it like a background, what color, changes, etc. The artist takes some tracing paper over a light box and traces an outline with a pen and uses that to make a carbon stencil. Wouldn’t it be faster and more efficient to scan a copy or have a database of all the pictures on the computer, pull it up on Illustrator or some kind of vector art program (or Photoshop), make adjustments, resize it, edit it, and print it out? Then if there are errors you don’t have to re-draw the outlines with pen again or worry about losing the physical copy.

I’d like to hear from professional tattoo artists who work in an actual professional business environment. Not that home or garage tattoos lack skills but the environment that would be most applicable to this question would be in a studio with lots of clients and traffic.

Administrator answers:

Perhaps because they only need a simple pencil/pen drawing on a piece of tracing paper.

I hardly think crisp vector lines on the artwork matter that much when you are using a needle to inject pigments under someone’s skin. The quality of the lines on the artwork on the paper is irrelevant surely – it’s only being used as a guide.

I am a graphic designer, I use Illustrator in my work, but if I were doing this kind of work – I think I would probably just use tracing paper too. Why complicate it?
