Can you tattoo the same spot over consecutive days?

I know for big pieces you can do them section by section but could you for instance line the entire piece first, and then fill the rest in over the course of a few days? What would be the opening to get it done and what would be too long?

you can...but I imagine it hurts. You'll see artists at conventions do 2-3 days in a row on a big piece.

I wouldn't say its impossible... However you dont want to overwork the skin too much.

It happens in conventions all the time and I dont really think it makes a negative visual effect on the tattoo, but maybe more discomfort for the client? I had someone come to fill some parts of this design in solid black. I managed to get half the lines and black done, however the next day, they came back and I wouldn't dare go over the black again. The lines weren't so bad to go up to but he did say it was mildly uncomfortable (I guess in perspective, thats nothing haha)

I think it solely depends on what it is? (Sorry for the long post, only just saw after writing it all lol)
