Can I use some kind of numbing cream?

We don’t necessarily feel the need to use any kind of numbing while getting tattooed. However, we do recommend and support HUSH GEL ANASTHETIC products.

Does it hurt?

Pain is relative to the individual person. Everyone has a different tolerance to pain. For the most part, yes they do hurt. Some have compared it to a “cat scratching feeling” or “burning sensation”. If it was unbearable, then millions of people wouldn’t keep returning for more.
