What is Tattoo Wax?

What-is-Tattoo-Wax

As estheticians, you have likely spent hours watching YouTube and Instagram videos of waxing. Stirring, dripping and applying the wax is mesmerizing, educational and entertaining.
You have probably seen at least one of the thousands of tattoo waxing videos. Literally thousands.
Tattoo waxing isn’t new but the Cirépil by Perron Rigot Tattoo Wax is!

It’s a patented formula designed for tattoo waxing. If you are already waxing tattoos, why not have a wax specifically designed, patented and dermatologically tested to be an actual tattoo wax. If you are not waxing tattoos, it’s time to start! Aside from the beautiful gray color, it works amazingly to brighten tattoos, removing hair or both!

Why Wax Tattoo? 

But why wax tattoos? To improve the appearance of the tattoo by making it more vibrant like it was in its early days. Dead skin builds up on the epidermis creating a dull appearance on the skin. Exfoliating and hydrating are essential not only for the health of the skin but also for the appearance of the tattoo. Some people even shave their tattoos to get that fresh look, but it isn’t exactly convenient.

Shaving anywhere on the body will make the hair grow back rough, stubbly, thick and much more quickly. A shaved tattoo will be followed by stubble, growing in the next day often paired with irritation, bumps and redness. Yikes!

Before vs After with Cirépil Tattoo Wax

In addition to waxing tattoos to bring them back to life, you can also wax the area prior to a tattoo to avoid the area being shaved, dry, by the tattoo artist. Nothing is more uncomfortable than a tattoo that is healing combined with irritation and bumps from being shaved dry with a pink disposable razor.
