How can I navigate and mine hell safely?

I'm wondering if there's a good tactic for mining hellstone. Since I have full Shadow armor, and still I get killed damn easily by mobs in Underworld, is there something I'm missing? Should I get some special equipment?

Obsidian skin potions and water breathing potions are a great combination, as they allow you to mine from within the lava, where the only enemy you have to worry about are bone dragons.
