Tattoo problem

So I want a tattoo on my arm. The only problem is that my upper arm where I want has hair. And the hair grows pretty quickly. So theres a few questions:
1) Will it mess up the tattoo?
2) Will the hair continue to grow after the tattoo.
3) Will the tattoo go deep enough to destroy the hair follicles
4) What would you guys do in this situation?

1. If you go to a good tattooer, the tattoo will be fine. He/ She will shave the area first.
2. The hair will grow back.
3. Tattoos do not effect hair folicles.
4. In your situation I would find a great tattooer (Steve Boltz, Johaan Florendo, There are tons fo them in NY) and get the tattoo you want.

People get tattoos over areas with hair all the time. They just shave it off, and it will grow back fine. Go for it!

Both of my calves are inked and in both cases, the hair grew back lighter (nearly not there) afterwards. I have no idea why. I cannot guarantee that will happen with your arm. But you could just shave it yourself once in a while.
