CAN I SWIM?
Until your tattoo is fully healed, you should avoid swimming in a pool, in the sea, or even soaking in the bathtub. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, exposing your tattoo to too much water may draw ink out of your skin and damage the tattoos appearance. Secondly, the water in swimming pools, the sea, and the bathtub may be carrying dirt, bacteria, chemicals and other impurities that could cause your tattoo to become infected.
It will be completely safe to resume these activities once your tattoo is healed, but for now you should stick to rinsing your tattoo in the sink or shower.
Keep your showers and baths short, under 5-6 minutes.
CAN I EVER USE VASELINE?
The worst enemy of your tattoo during healing is Vaseline or any other petroleum gel. As is clogs the pores and prevents the tattoo from healing, which will lead to a definite infection. The bacteria will be trapped in between the gel and your skin this process will make the tattoo suffer because the gel lasts for a very long time and in fact has no important function to the healing process. If you ever think that you will protect your tattoo by putting Vaseline on it during healing and SWIM then, you are burning it with the exposition to the sun rays as any petroleum gel works as an enforcer to the sunbeams.
DO HUZZ INK SELL ALL THE AFTERCARE PRODUCTS YOU WILL NEED?
The aftercare products are only supplied by a licensed pharmacy, in which we don't have the privilege to sell. We can recommend the best products that will help in speeding up the process of healing and make the skin moist during the healing phase.

DO WE DO FINGER TATTOOS?
The thing is that the fingers have different skin than other parts of the body, some parts do too. So it would not be possible to do a tattoo to stay the same as vibrant and good looking like the pictures you see on the internet because these pictures were taken fresh right after it was done. When it peals off the color will fade away and it will loose it's charm That's why I don't advise finger tattoos in general.

HOW MUCH IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO BOOK?
All depends on the tattoo job you request. If your tattoo is small we can fit you in the schedule easy BUT, if your tattoo cover a big area of your body this will need preparations from both you and the artist. In that case a consultation session is advised first and then we proceed with the booking for getting the actual tattoo.
CAN I GO TO THE GYM?
Tattoos that cover large surface areas, or are near joints (such as elbows and knees), may take longer to heal if the skin is forced to move around too much during intense workouts or other physical activity. The movement will cause the skin to crack and become irritated, prolonging the tattoos healing process. For this reason, you should avoid unnecessary workouts for at least a few days after getting a new tattoo.
If you're involved in a self-defense class like karate or kickboxing, you may want to warn your classmates so they can avoid hitting you in the wrong place.
If you work in a job that involves physical activity, such as construction or dance, you may want to consider having your new tattoo done on a Friday, so it will have the
IT IS TOO ITCHY CAN I TOUCH IT?
As it heals, your tattoo will begin to scab. This is normal, and the scabs should be allowed to dry out and fall off by themselves. Do not try to help the process along by picking at the scabs. This may cause the scabs to fall off prematurely, leaving holes or light spots on your tattoo.
If your hands or nails are unclean; you may also cause the tattoo to become infected. You should always wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap before touching your tattoo, and you should never allow anyone else to touch it while it heals.
Dry, scabbing or peeling skin can become very itchy, but scratching at your tattoo may also cause scabs to fall off. You can relieve itching by slapping the tattoo with the flat of your hand, or by rubbing in a little lotion.
Keep using moisturizing ointment to combat itchiness if it is a problem.
WHY SOME PEOPLE FAINT?
the main reason for a person to faint is fear combined with an empty stomach, always have a full stomach before getting a tattoo. Blood pressure will fall and will cause the person to faint else wise.
CAN I LISTEN TO MUSIC DURING THE TATTOO SESSION?
Music is the healer of the soul, having your earphones on or listening to intense music will for sure distract you from the actual pain and process happening. Music is highly recommended.
