How much does a tattoo on the rib cage hurt? and you should post a picture of all of your tattoos :)

Asked by

It hurts. A lot. haha no way around it. Some of the less painful places I’ve been tattooed though are on my back. One that took me by surprise was my thigh, I didn’t think it would hurt that much. >.<

  7. realityinwonderland said: It depends on the person, a lot of people say it hurts, i would read a whole bunch of “it hurts too much” or ” I’d rather be shot” but I fell asleep during my rib tattoo. It didn’t start hurting or getting sore till an hour after I got it.
