Do they shave the area before doing a tattoo? ?
I plan to get a tattoo on my upper arm (where there is basically just peach fuzz). Do they have to shave it first? What if I decide to get it on my leg (which is very hairy)?
Also, how long will I need to protect the tattoo from water, etc? What type of care will it require while it is new?

the artist will shave the area before applying the stencil and tattooing. you need to clean your new tattoo 3 times a day with warm soapy water, but don't submerge it fully (in a bath or go swimming) until it is fully healed, depending on how fast your skin heals this could be between 2-4 weeks
