    hey,
    i am thinking of getting "Time of My Life" written down my ribs. Each letter about 5cm high. Does anyone know any good tattoo shops in sydney or Melbourne Australia for script tattoos also could anyone give me a rough time frame that it would take to draw the tattoo, also how painful are the ribs to get done?
    cheers

    Not sure i can help you with any of that but i will say the ribs are one of the most painful places to get tattooed. I wouldn't let that put you off though, a couple of hours of pain for something that will last a lifetime seems like a decent trade off, to me :dunno:

    Ribs hurt like mofo! I would suggest either steel lotus in darlinghurst or tatudharma in Chippendale.

    ribs aren't that bad. i say it really depends on whos doing it. under the arm pit and on the bottom side of my belly were the worst parts.

    Different parts of the rib area hurt more than others.

    For Sydney I can recommend Sasha at Wicked ink in Penrith,
    He's one of only 2 artists I'd give complete free reign to

    Do you live in Sydney? All the studios we suggested are really really far from each other.

    um, i'm not gonna lie, my shit hurt like hell. Though you could nearly draw a line right down the middle of my ribs from armpit down and the chest side hurt like none other. The back side of my ribs was almost heaven sent compared to the other side.

    Now with any tattoo the time spent each session can help with dealing with the pain. I didn't have the time and wanted to get it done in 1session....so 6hrs was pretty effin brutal haha.

    Oof yeah, side of the stomach fucking kills. Plus it'd make my stomach twitch and tense up, and the tensing made the pain worse...god that sucked a fat d

    OK, just as a reference:

    Tattoo Nation: Shane is good, wouldn't rate anyone else
    I've seen some good work come out of the shop on the great western highway near pendle hill, but no Idea which artist
    Stingers at st Mary's: Haven't seen anything I liked come out of there
    Golden needle at Blacktown: Not unless the old guy came out of retirement, his son and nephew just don't have the skills
    Wicked Ink: Sasha and Kiwi Kim (if she's still there, was on a guest spot last I knew)

    All the info is 18 months old though as thats how long I've been out of the country

    Hope it helps

    haha it's nice to see that i wasn't the only one tensing up and swearing like a sailor. I had a belt with a lot of excess and found myself wrapping it around my hand for something to squeeze. Some stupid intense pain mang.
