The ribs hurt! The only one worse, for me anyway, was behind the knee.
I consider myself having a very high pain tolerance and I went and got my first ever tattoo on my ribs it does hurt but not as bad as people say I would say 6.5/10 my piece only took an hour and a half though
My friend just got one on his ribs and he said it hurt like a ************, but honestly i don't think it is as bad as the feet. I just got one on my foot and i have a huge tattoo on my wrist and i got to say the foot is so god damn painful i almost decided i was going to stop. So u should be fine i just don't recommend anyone getting a tattoo on there foot if it is there first.
I just got a tattoo of a quote on my ribs and to be honest it was about a 3 outta 10. I'm a 16 year old girl and it was my first tattoo. I found it didn't hurt at all :) I love it so much! everyone told me it was going to hurt really bad and even the tattoo artist looked at me funny when I said it was my first tattoo and I was getting it there. I'm so glad I didn't get it anywhere else :)
I really want to get my rib tattoo and I have contemplated it for months now it is just going to be wording with a silhouette of doves around it. My pain tollerance is extremely low but when I got my lower back done it hurt more on the sides and the spine was more or less relaxing to be honest. Do you think if I liked it more on my spine that I could handle it on my ribs??
I'm not sure. But I'm about to find out!
Every one I've seen looks amazing. I'd love to get one.
I thought my foot was worse, I mean like you said pain is different. I dont mind the tattoo. I mean it hurt but I dont cry either like some people. I just take it. I got a few tats so It isnt scary to me, no matter what people say they hurt. Just other places worse than others. I think depends on person to. I actually dont mind the pain.
Rib tattoos are generally the worst kind. My ex was a tattoo artist and he was literally covered in them. He said he has in 24 years of tattooing only found one person who could tolerate it well. This is not a scare tactic. This is the truth so if you want to do a tattoo on the ribs be sure to take some ibuprofen before I recommend for a full grown adult 4 of them. It is usually a safe one time dosage but confirm it with your doctor first.
You're not supposed to take ibuprofen!! It makes your blood thinner, therefore, you will bleed a lot during your tattoo.
