Who shaves their arms?

I accidently shaved my arms when I was 11 years old and now I regret it! Lol. Has anyone done this and is it best to just to shave your arms? I've always been confused about shaving my arms but I do because I hate putting lotion on my arms and them being so hairy! I guess I need some advice on this whole 'shaving techinique" I had to pull up because of my mistake when I was a kid.

  • I've shaved my arms before. I like the look of shaved arms on me more than hairy. It takes just a little extra time when I'm shaving everything else. I don't even think about it anymore. I don't think it's weird.
