Coarse hair can get in the way of a good applicator to skin transfer.
Light hair in the application area is fine and allows for a good transfer, but the more hair there is, the more room there is for error. Hair creates a barrier that does not allow the tattoo to stick directly to the skin. This can cause the ink to leak during application, or for the tattoo to be underdeveloped.
If you are questioning whether or not to shave the application area, we suggest shaving it.
💡 If you shave, we recommend waiting 24 hours before applying Inkbox.
Shaving can cause micro-cuts in the skin that puts the skin at a higher risk of irritation. Post shaving, we would suggest moisturizing the skin to heal any damage to the skin and keep it healthy for application.
