Hi, i am getting my first tattoo tomorrow. It’s lettering down the side of my ribs in plain black. It’s going to be about 1.5cm high and 20cm long..does anybody have an idea of roughly how long it may take? It’s in Magna Veritas font which isnt too fancy!

Hello and welcome to the forum. Everybody like’s there own tattoo but many on this forum including myself will advice you not to waste one of the biggest area’s on your body for tattoo’s on some text tattoo. End of the day different people like different thing’s though so it’s up to you.

Be sure to post pictures when your done.

it’s the only one i plan on getting though so wasting an area shouldnt bean issue. My work excludes me from having them in anywhere more visable as well.

Do you have any rough idea how long it will take though? It will be 23 letters and about 1.5cm high and 20cm long. Obviously i realise every tattoo artist works at a different pace, i was just looking for a rough estimate really! the font wont have any particularly intricate detail.

I would say no longer than 45 minutes ๐Ÿ™‚

i have writing on my ribs, it feels a lot longer than it is coz the ribs are pretty narly! i have to say that they were the worst 25 mins of my life lol i would rather have the 2 hours on my hips bones again than do the 20 mins on my ribs again! lol i rekon it’ll take no more than an hour if you let them just get on with it and they are careful, just take a fizzy drink and dont go on an empty (or full!) stomach and you’ll be fine ๐Ÿ™‚ x

Famous last words. Many here only planned on getting one, now most here just plan on getting another one and another one.

Unless you are a stripper you will find ways of hiding them. There are many members here who have work restrictions and have quite a bit of ink.
