When do you remove the masking tape when painting?

Dolores asked 5 years ago

I always use painter’s tape especially when painting with dark colors. I gently removed the tape and it tore off a bunch of the paint.

I have been told to leave it until the paint is bone dry and I’ve also been told to remove it immediately after applying the paint. Which is it? Also, how do you prevent bleeding? I have chosen to paint feature walls black and the paint bled.
