How long can you sit for a tattoo before you are just spent and need to come back for another session?

How long between sessions?

No idea, but I am going to see. My first experience was having my complete back done with line work. My artist says that is the most painful. I sat for 2 1/2 hours with no problem. By no problem I mean I could have lasted a lot longer. Not that it was pain free. My next session is scheduled for 4 hours, so we will see! The line work is completely healed, or seems to be, exactly one week out. It's bloodlining though. The little bit of shading that is done is still healing. I am waiting 4 weeks between last session and the next. I am expecting to wait 6 weeks after that.

I've been able to get my tattoos done in one setting. I think that 2+ hours would be pushing it for me. I would also wait atleast a month in between settings, just to make sure that the first setting was done healing.

I was able to sit for 4.5 hours when I got my fairy done on my back. We did take a break halfway through so that I could stand up and the tattoo artist to walk away and blink for a few minutes. It really wasn't that bad sitting that long.

With my first half-sleeve, I got it done in one session. This took 8 hours. I just made sure to pack snacks and sugary products so my blood pressure didn't crash.

For my second half sleeve, (turtle) there was a lot more detail, and I, surprisingly, got it done in one session as well. This one took nearly 11 hours, and I almost passed out twice. (I forgot to pack snacks.. oops). They had to run and grab me some sugar and a mt. dew. After I left I devoured some food and I was fine! I always wait atleast 2-3 weeks before getting any touch ups.

I can last about 3 hours and then I am toast. My adrenaline is gone and I can't take the pain anymore. I am a wuss though .
I would go a month or so between sittings. Sadly it will be much longer until I finish my upper arm .
I like having them done in one shot though

Ok, I am pretty sure 4 hours is my max! I just finished a 4 hour session this weekend. The last 15 minutes was almost more than I could handle. It hurt much worse than the restt of it. I ate beforehand and I kept drinking juice and raiding my artist's candy jar to keep up during the session. I was ok until we finished. Within 5 minutes my whole body was shaking. I ate something else and fell asleep right after and then I was fine. While I might be able to sit for longer, I am not sure it would be a good idea. Also, I don't have anything to compare it too, but I think I might be able to sit longer on a different part of my body.
