Default How bad is the pain for a full back piece?

Booked my first session today for a full back piece. Going to be a King of Spades in black/grey (for the sake of reference think of Josh Todd's King of Hearts back tattoo). First session will be 7 hours to do the outline. Now I am not new to tattoos as I have full sleeves that took 63 hours combined but I am wondering if I bit off more than I can chew with full back lol. Still going to do it though, just would like input from those that have full back work to gauge what I can expect. First Session is Feb 2nd.

Thanks in advance.

Wet Fire.

Every minute on my back was way worse than the worst minute on either of my arms. Elbow ditch, inner bicep, arm pit; it was all way easier than my back. You'll get through it, but you will have earned it.

Yeah the back ain’t fun, you don’t realise how far your ribs go back until the needle hits it.

I only have my top quarter done and it wasn't that bad. Inner arm was infinitely worse

Very reassuring considering you are way more tattooed than I am. I'll get it done though. I made this topic just to get myself ready mentally. All will end well though.

I was thinking upper back might not be as bad, but, only the head will be upper back, and the sword.

I actually thought my inner arms hurt worse than my elbows, both inner and outer.

Absolutely, positively, the worst tattoo pain I have ever felt, every second was horrendous at points I thought this is unbearable.

Have a read of my thread..
