We can specify custom tick labels in Matplotlib using the xticks() method.

Examples

To set label locations and their corresponding labels:

fig, ax = plt.subplots()
ax.plot(x, y)

# xticks(list of xtick locations, labels to place at the given tick locations)
locs, labels = plt.xticks([1,2,3,4], ['One', 'Two', 'Three', 'Four'])
plt.show()

This produces the following output:

Here we have specified that at x=1 we want the tick label 'One', at x=2 'Two' and so on.
