What to eat before/during 3-4 Hour tattoo session.

Im wondering if the board has any advice about what to eat before/during a 3-hour tattoo session. Getting tattooed will involve some minor blood loss, and elevated endorphin levels due to the relatively consistent (but relatively minor pain)

I was wondering if perhaps there were some experts on the board who might suggest the appropriate eating to prepare, sustain me for this event.

Drinking and taking drugs, by the way, are not good ideas. Alcohol dilates the capillaries close to the skin and can cause blurring of the ink.

TIA for any help/
