Your answer is – yes, getting a tattoo does not impede hair growth. However, for the majority of body parts you want to get inked, your tattoo artist will need to shave it before moving forward with tattooing the design.
Does hair growth affect tattoos?
Well, a simple answer is; yes, the hair will grow back, regardless of the tattoo! The hair may not grow as fast as it would usually do after a razor shave. The skin is damaged after the tattooing process, so the focus of the body is on wound healing first.
How do I stop my tattoo from growing hair?
Electrolysis is a long process that typically takes one to four years to complete, depending on the amount of hair being removed. However, this is the only way to safely stop hair growth over tattoos without harming the tattoo itself.
What is a tattoo blowout?
Tattoo blowouts occur when a tattoo artist presses too hard when applying ink to the skin. The ink is sent below the top layers of skin where tattoos belong. Below the skin’s surface, the ink spreads out in a layer of fat. This creates the blurring associated with a tattoo blowout.
Can you grow hair over a head tattoo?
Yes, it will grow over it. So if you tattoo it on your head it wont be visible once your hair grows again.
Does shaving over a tattoo make it fade?
Shaving won’t affect tattoos as long as they‘re healed and you take care of the skin when you do begin shaving it, keeping it exfoliated (to prevent ingrown hairs) and hydrated. Tattoo’d skin is exactly the same as regular skin once it’s healed so the same care applies.
Does shaving make tattoos look better?
I have come to find that shaving tattoos genuinely makes all of your art look much sharper, more beautiful/eye-catching, and more like the artist intended for it to look like. Keep in mind that new tattoos should not be shaven until they are fully healed. Shaving a tattoo while it still healing can damage the tattoo.
