How long should I wait after after hair removal to get a tattoo?
Answered by admin
I am an artist and in the process of designing a tattoo for my back. This will cover my entire back and extend out onto my shoulders and upper arms. I want to get laser hair removal before the tattoo. How much time should I wait after the laser hair removal to start the tattoo? Will the maintenance treatments to keep the hair off affect my tattoo?
Wait at least 2 weeks after a laser hair removal treatment before getting tattooed in that same area. However, you need to now that once you get the tattoo, you cannot treat that area –ever- with laser hair removal. Doing so wil scar. So you have to choose. Do you want the tattoo or do you want less hair in the area!
