yes, its rubbing alcohol.

use it on the skin after shaving & before stencil application.

use it to remove the stencil? dunno, guess it depends partially on what ya used to apply the stencil.

yes, its the same as rubbing alcohol..

I use it to clean the area after shaving, in addition to cleaning, it helps remove oils from the skin, which in turn helps stencils stay better.

It also works great to remove stencils.. and for keeping unruly clients in line.. lol

do not use rubbing alcohol on broken skin. The reason it kills grems is that it forces the water out of them and the dehydrating kills them. this also applies to skin. if you use rubbing alcohol on skin during a tattoo, it will be unnessisary pain and dry out the tattoo causing slower healing.
