Let’s get right down to it: nobody wants a hairy tattoo! So whether you’re planning an amazing, huge back tat or something a little less dramatic, we have some very important advice for you: take care of the hair first!
You might be looking forward to endlessly shaving or otherwise removing hair from your tatted area for the rest of your days, but we think not. It makes more sense to get rid of that unwanted hair, virtually permanently, with laser hair removal. That way, your tattoo will always look its detailed best, never stubbled or furry. Unfortunately, once that ink is in place, laser hair removal is no longer an option; nor is intense-pulsed light (IPL).
