I am planning on getting a tattoo on my calf but I am wondering how it will affect the hair on my leg. Will the hair stop growing or will it grow over the tattoo? Will the hair become less coarse? The only tattoo I have is on my shoulder and I have very little hair on my back but a lot more on my legs so that is why I’m curious. Thanks!

before you get the tattoo the artist will definately shave your calf, and later the hair will grow back over the tattoo, it will probably blend in pretty well with the rest of your leg hair so no worries, but it may be slightly coarser and darker……basicly like how when girls shave their legs the hair grows back thicker and darker

How much does a tattoo artist charge for designing a tattoo with you?
What type of tattoo would be best to cover a small color tattoo on the leg?

  4. The hair will grow back normally. The funniest thing I’ve heard was my tattoo artist talking about his portrait of his daughter on his thigh "Well my daughter has a beard now.." Nothing to worry about though the hair will grow back.
