How long does a stencil last?

Recommended Posts

 

Hello, I am new tattooing and I have a doubt.
How long does a stencil last?
Can I make a stencil today and apply it just tomorrow?

Thanks, for the help!

Do you mean print/trace it today and put it on skin the next? Yes. When I used to hand-copy my stencils, I'd prep them in advance (sometimes a couple copies, in case it was a tricky application). I usually used them within a few days. 

If you mean to put the stencil on the skin, then tattoo it the next day: no. Even though the set stencil may survive to the next day, prepping the skin properly for tattooing will more than likely completely remove it.

Unless you have it slightly wonky and have to try to remove it lol
