    Alright, so i'm making an appointment to get my first tattoo the first week of the new year, but i'm questioning WHICH i should do first

    pain isn't too much of an interest to me,seeing as I've been pierced several times, including surface piercings.. but would it be stupid to do my first tattoo on my ribs, or should i do another tattoo I was planing on my upper back?

    any help would be great

    thnx

    I placed my second tat (I'll try to put up pics tomorrow) on my ribcage . It's a sun with a wave swirling in the center...about 3 x 3..and really liked the way it came out..just seems a nice space :) . I realize pain is different for everyone, but it was definately quite sensitive! Always gets good reactions though...good luck regardless

    my first tatto was like 30 minutes on my shoulder...didn't hurt alot, was little and stupid. 4 years later I spent 15 hours on my ribs. :dunno: how big areyou thinking of?


    IMO you have to plan out your body, I'm not into a lot oflittle tattoos but many large pieces. For me a 3x3 sun on your ribs would ruin alot of prime real estate...

    anywhere right on the bone is going to be awfully sensitive

    I thought my spine was WAYYYY more comfortable than tattooing anywhere else on me. Had a weird vibrating feeling but other than that, was great.

    Still..for a first? I would not recommend the ribcage. Piercing pain does NOT prepare you for tattooing. :)

    Really? I thought mine spine was the most uncomfortable spot I've had tattoed.

    Since you don't have anything to compare it to (other tattoos) I would say go with whatever you think will be the worst first. I got my first up under my arm (near my arm pit) and I didn't really think it really wasn't that bad - when my artist found out that it was my first tattoo she was shocked that I took it so well.
