  • admin says:

    The ribcage is a very bony area and there are less tissues to cushion the skin during tattooing so its a lot painful to get it there compared to your back. But if you really want it, pain should not matter, you’ll get by.

  • Meghan says:

    I just got my first tattoo on my rib cage, right below my bra line. Yes, it was painful! I am relieved that the tattoo consisted on only two lines of text. It took about 35 minutes, and I was in tears much of the time and had to be reminded to breathe. But it was an extrodinary experience overall

  • Kyle says:

    I have a ribcage tattoo and want one on the other side of my body. mine is the phrase give it all with nautical stars on each side. it runs from just under my armpit to my hip. As far as the pain goes the ribs them self didnt hurt that bad it was the more spongy skin just above the hip that hurt the worst to me. I have an extremely high pain tolerance so the pain was really nothing to me. I think it all depends on how much pain you can take.

    im getting my second tattoo tomorrow which will be a ribcage tattoo. actually really excited to get it, its only going from my hip to halfway up my ribs, as this allows for an add on in the future if i decide it. hopefully it wont hurt too much as the only thing that hurt during my first tattoo, was the aching from staying still for so long. hopefully it wont be to bad though as its quite a walk home :P

  • Danny says:

    What kind of pain do you feel when you get tattoo? I think it really hurts.

  • Michael says:

    I have both of my sides tatted. On my left side is a koi that goes from the underside of my armpit to the several inches below the belt line. It took 9 hours in 2 sessions, 4 hours for the outline and grey shading, 5 hours for the coloring. I’d say the pain was as bad as when i shattered my foot. It was definitely intense, it wavers between a 8-9/10 on the scale of pain but i also endured it for many hours. It didn’t really get unbearable until the last hour or so. On my right side i have my last name coming down. its a little smaller and only took 5 hours all black. I remember being extremely fatigued mentally and physically after enduring the pain for 5 hours straight. Got my shoulder done and it was a piece of cake. The side was at least 3-4 times worse for me.

    I have a rib cage tattoo of a shakespeare love quote. It was my first tattoo and I love it too bits! To anyone worrying about the pain, dont worry too much!! Although people say its very painful, its not as bad as you think. The parts on the bone hurt a bit but other than that it felt just like a little buzzing :) And I am a wimp big time, I felt worse after my tragus piercing :) good luck, go for it and it will look hot!

  • Ashley says:

    I just got my first tattoo on my ribs it’s a tree of life covering my right side. The tattoo is a little wide than a DVD case and took three hours. The first two hours were okay. It hurt at certain points there were points that did bring tears to my eyes but the last hour of shading hurt even worse which is my usually the case with shading I’ve heard. I’m happy with the overall result and can’t wait for it to heal.(:
