How long does it take to tattoo each individual letter of a word?

I've always wanted a tattoo, and I've convinced my mum to let me get one if I still want it by the time I'm old enough. I was wondering how long each letter would take to do though. I wanna know how long I've gotta sit still for. Make sure I'm certain before getting it done.
If I still want it this time next year, I'm gonna get 'Raining in Baltimore' on my lower back. It's the name of a song and it's a part of me, I just want it to be a physical part of me. I know it'll take ages to have done, but I just wanted a more accurate sense of how long.
Thank you!!
