It won't stick there. Cut out that part and paint it with black paint if you have to. Most good tint shops will not apply tint to that area. It will stick a little bit but will not stay smoothe.

ANother suggestion is to put some black vinyl over that area on the outside of the window.

The shop that did both my cars did an excellent job. They stuck it over the dot matrix and I've had no problem with it at all. They've been on for several months now.
