Hush Gel:

Before breaking the skin, apply a thick layer (1/4th inch) of Hush Gel to the main surface area and edges where tattoo will be. Spread evenly, but DO NOT rub in to the skin, as this will cause evaporation.

Wrap the area with plastic wrap and allow one (1) full hour for absorption.

Remove the plastic wrap and prep the skin for tattoo procedure.

Hush Spray:

After skin is broken, apply Hush Spray generously to the area being tattooed.

For optimal results, allow spray to absorb for 10-15 minutes, though formula activates within 90 seconds.

Reapply as needed.

Hush Foam Soap:

Hush Foam Soap can be used to clean the tattoo area as you normally would. Simply apply and gently rub into skin.

The formula will gently cleanse the area as it numbs, providing a more comfortable experience for client and artists.

On average, Hush Gel will last up to two (2) hours after removal of wrap and product.
Hush anesthetic spray, lasts about 35 minutes once the skin has been broken.

Please note, everyone’s skin is different. Always follow directions for best results.

A 2oz bottle (60 grams) will work best for small to medium tattoos. Remember for the Gel formula, you’ll want to leave a thick layer when you apply. We recommend our 4oz bottle size (120 grams) for large tattoos.
