    Summary

    “You want to do this,” she says. “He has no idea what the fuck he wants.”

    “Fucking great, Phasma,” Hux says. “Why do you do this to me? I’m supposed to do flash on some fucking idiot?”

    “Oh no,” she says. “He doesn’t want anything out of the flash binders either.”

    Hux scoffs. “You just want me to hold his hand through baby’s first tattoo.”

    “He’d probably let you,” she says. “He’d probably let you do whatever you want.”

    Hux looks up at her.

    She has the audacity to wink at him.

    “You’re the one that keeps telling me I can’t do what I want,” he mutters.

    ***

    This piece started as a fill for this kyluxhardkinks prompt (http://kyluxhardkinks.tumblr.com/post/162259545045/hux-is-a-tattoo-artist-kylo-is-ehm-clearly):

    Hux is a tattoo artist, kylo is ehm... Clearly into the pain. Or the Ginger. Ren is not sure yet what makes him so hard in every session so he comes over and over and over again. He was thinking about going somewhere else just to see if he will react the same way but that felt like cheating on hux. So he goes to his place to get tattoos until they do something about it.

    The fill very rapidly went sideways.
