Thread: How soon can you shave over a new tattoo?

  1. #1

    How soon can you shave over a new tattoo?

    How long should you wait after getting a tattoo before you can shave over it?

    Until it is completely healed. Which can be two weeks or so. </p>

    <P mce_keep="true">Yeah, seriously. You won't even want to touch it at first. Thinking about shaving over it will be like.. [:|] Plus the razor would more than likely cut your scabs off. That would be bad.</P>

    That can do as much damage to the tattoo as a normal razor can. I would recommend against this too. </p>

    I personally wait til the tattoo is "settled" (completely level with my skin, even if there's no scabs)...about 3 weeks usually. If you have dark hair, I'm sure trimming it a bit CAREFULLY with scissors would be feasible.

    How funny! I have never gotten a tattoo in a place that requires shaving so this hadn't even crossed my mind.</p>

    Electric razor=bad</p>

    Id wait a month but it really depends on how fast you heal. Im a play it safe person. Mess up your tat or be hairy for a month? Id be hairy for a month.</p>

    then again im so damn lazy any excuse not to shave my legs! (good thing im part japanese and blond im like a hairless mole rat)</p>

    I agree that its anywhere between 2wks to a month. Mine was scabby for a good 3 weeks
