How long do you have to wait to shave after you get a tattoo?

I want to get a tattoo on my leg, but my hair grows really fast.
How long do I have to wait to shave?
How long should I wait before I start using a loofah again?

  1. When I got my Tattoo on my leg 5 years ago I of course shaved before I went in and they told me I could shave my legs about 7 to 10 days after that. . But I shaved my legs around the tattoo the day after I got it. And with the loofah I would give it 7 to 10 days also give it time to heal to prevent infection. .

  2. my brother got his leg tattooed,

    and they told him to shave it two days before.

    he still shaves over it now :s haah
    but while it’s healing you can’t shave over it.

  3. Usually about a week needs to go buy for it to heal for shaving and loofah.
    You can shave around the tattoo the next day though.

  4. You need to wait until the tattooed area is completely healed, 4-6 weeks. If you shave over it while it’s healing, you risk shaving the scabs. Just shave around it until it heals.
