Suppose we have the following graph:

x = np.linspace(0, 3, 1000)
plt.plot(x, x)
plt.show()

This produces the following:

Our goal is to remove the 2nd and 4th tick (i.e. ticks with label 0.5 and 1.5):

x = np.linspace(0, 3, 1000)

# Get axis to the ticks via the current axis
ax = plt.gca()
xticks = ax.xaxis.get_major_ticks()
xticks[2].set_visible(False)
xticks[4].set_visible(False)

plt.plot(x, x)
plt.show()

This produces the following:

We see that the 2nd and 4th ticks have been removed!
