Can I use numbing creams before getting tattooed?

We don’t recommend using topical numbing products as they can change the quality of your skin when applied.  This may affect the final look of your tattoo.  Since creams are topical, they are wiped off during the normal tattooing process and will lose their effectiveness anyway.  You are welcome to discuss this further with your artist.
