I'm getting my first tattoo soon and I'm really leaning into a rib tattoo but people have been telling me it hurts like crazy ! If anyone has a rib tattoo and would like to share their experience please feel free !

DO NOT TAKE ANY PAIN KILLERS, ALCOHOL OR WEED.
You will thin your blood and bleed out.
DO NOT TAKE BREAKS.
The more breaks you take the longer it'll take you overall. Just toughen up and get it over with. Honestly you're just getting words, so it won't be as bad as getting a full color picture tattoo. Try and breathe evenly.
Make sure you eat a good meal before going. You're most probably going to feel either extremely hot or extremely cold during the process. You will also feel really jittery afterward so you should eat to regain your strength.
If they give you that plastic wrap to cover it, take it off once you leave the shop. That's the worst crap to put on a healing tattoo.
Shower immediately once you get home, but do not under any circumstances soak the tattoo like in a bath or anything.1
