Has anyone tried waxing a tattooed part of their body? Is it safe?

As long as the tattoo has healed, it’s absolutely fine. I have waxed over a tattoo on my leg many times.

Yes, it won’t be affected. Don’t do it right after you get it done though, the tattoo must be completely healed.

I have several tattoos and one in a private area that you wouldn’t be able to see if there were hair there. I wax about every 2-3 months and have been for years with no adverse reactions to the tattoos. Just make the tattoo is fully healed before waxing and make sure you wait a few days after waxing to get a tattoo in that area to avoid irritation. There is a lotion called AmLactin or LacHydran you can get to help with any ingrowns that may occur after waxing.
