    I'm thinking about getting a tattoo on my leg/calf, but since I'm a guy, I'd have to shave my leg to keep the tattoo showing.

    Does anyone know if products like Veet/Nair pull the color out of your skin, since they're "chemicals"

    I also have this tiny prob with the tat on my arm.. I have a few sprouts of hair that make it look strange if I dont shave it every few days. I would like to get rid of the hair entirely, but dont know of anything that would do so effectively, without messin up the tattoo. BTW, its an all black tattoo.

    try plucking the few hairs. If you get them at exactly the right time, you can kill the follicle

    I don't think nair would have an affect, but I can see laser hair removal messing up the color.

    as a female and having a rather large tattoo on my calft, and one on my ankle, I've used the products (nair and veet) and it doesn't affect the tattoo.

    the veet/nair attaches itself to the hair (and it's meant not to affect the skin)..besided it doesn't penetrate the skin. so you're safe to use it

    As a guy who used to shave his legs... we grow hair a shit load quicker than women.
    Plus, if you only shave a patch... it looks really fucking stupid.

    Wax it. Over time youll have less and less hair and can go for longer periods between the waxing. It shouldnt have any effect on the color.

    Does Veet/Nair fall under the "wax" category, or should I buy actual wax? :hs:

    Veet and nair melt the hair off at skin level.
    Waxing removes the entire follicle.
    Waxing is a much better option.

    every follicle grows once every seven days or so. If you zap them when they're growing, they die. :)
