everyone one has hair on their back. hair has to be removed for a tattoo. you're not special

That is standard procedure when you get a tattoo. Calm the **** down. It's not the end of the world.

I usually just troll and find a stupid reason for why you deserve this but damn, FYL

Everyone has to shave before a tattoo, no matter where you get it! so not FYL!

Yeah, everyone has to shave, regardless of how much hair you actually have. The slightest bit can mess it up.

yeah... ydi for not knowing everyone has to shave where the tattoo is going to be... just reading up on how they do tattoos and the preparations they do would have told you that everyone has to do it...

I know very little about tattoos, but even I know you have to shave first no matter what gender you are.... Idiot.

op, you're a mammal. mammals have hair. even if its just a tiny bit, it can **** up your tat. so, not your fault, but you might not want to post such things online cuz these dumbasses are always gonna be "eww good job for being a nasty hairy bitch" buuut congrats on joining the club, i hope you didnt get a tramp stamp.

i have a lot on my back and i'm a girl :( but i dont mind shaving. so it's all good. lol

do you mean you have a lot of hair, or tattoos?

Not true, I got a tattoo on my upper back and they didn't have to shave, maybe you should go get your back waxed? FYL though...How many people who say it needs to be shaved actually have tattoos?

Uhm you're supposed to get shaved before a tattoo to avoid ingrown hairs. Whoever didn't shave you first was tattooing unsafe. I've known enough tattoo artists, and people to get tattoos, to tell you such!

i had to shave my wrist before i got my tattoo, and there was probably like 1 blond hair there, its standard tattoo procedure. duh.

Why do some girls freak out over hair. I know hairy girls who don't make a big deal, or else they'd shave it

To everyone saying you always have to shave before you get a tattoo- I've got four different tattoos, split between two different tattoo parlors. I didn't have to shave for any of them, and they all turned out great. I also know lots of people who have a number of tattoos, and unless it's in a place where there was actually thick hair present, they didn't have to shave before it was done.

I have a tattoo on my ankle and I hadn't shaved in a few days. He didn't tell me to shave or anything and my tat looks awesome. He didn't shave it for me, he just went over the hair

Even if she didnt have hair they have to shave her back so the skin is smooth for the needle...

Yeh but you can control the tattoo and where it goes - I'm sorry but thats gross - dont put the tat on your hairy back!

They have to shave the area of the tattoo everytime, regardless of where it is or how much hair there is.... so this isn't gross or a FML...

everyone one has hair on their back. hair has to be removed for a tattoo. you're not special

yes you do. everyone does, not dark, thick hair, usually light and thin.

173 - it's cuz you're fat, you can't reach your back to have a feel..

I'm a girl and places like my wrist and my ribs have been shaved in preparation for tattoos. I can't see hair on either place but they have to do it.

#6 is right, this is stanard, stop complaining. NOC

usually the tattoo artist does that are you letting a friend tattoo you in their basement

THANK YOU. geez, i thought i was the only one who thought that.

That is standard procedure when you get a tattoo. Calm the **** down. It's not the end of the world.

It was her first tattoo, she most likely didn't know.

Its standard. If you were to get a tattoo on your forearm where there is little skin, you have to shave it. Any place that could even have the finest of hair, you have to shave, even if you get a tattoo between your thumb and finger.

This is one of the worst FMLs ever. Jesus christ you're whiny.
