Frequently Asked Questions
Tattoo numbing cream works by blocking pain signals in the area it has been applied to from reaching the brain. It makes getting a tattoo a much more pleasant experience, especially if it is on a particularly sensitive area of the skin.
Our signature tattoo numbing cream is highly rated by tattoo lovers and tattoo artists alike, allowing you to fully relax and get your tattoo completed in one session. For many, the most off-putting part of getting tattooed is the pain. Tattoo numbing cream works by numbing the surface of the skin for a short period of time (up to 3-4 hours) and offering highly effective pain relief.
Our signature tattoo numbing cream is most commonly used for those looking to reduce pain during tattoo sessions. Yet it has a wide range of other uses too, since it is safe to use anywhere on the body.
Other uses for this cream include: Tattooing, Laser Hair Removal, Waxing, Injections, Blood tests, Vaccinations, Lip Fillers, Permanent Makeup, Piercings and other cosmetic skin treatments.
The effects of tattoo numbing cream last for up to 3-4 hours after application. It will gradually become less effective and sensitivity will start to return to that area of the skin after this time.
Keep in mind that it should be applied at least 30-60 minutes before a tattooing session for it to have maximum effect. This means that timing is crucial when it comes to applying the cream. You don’t want to apply it too late, but also not too early so that it begins to wear off during your session.
If you know that your tattoo artist may need some time to set up, it might be a good idea to take your tube of tattoo numbing cream with you to the shop, so you can apply it at the right time.
Similar to applying any new substance to your skin, tattoo numbing cream can cause some minor side effects, although not everyone will experience them.
A mild reaction (paleness or redness of the skin, slight puffiness, initial burning or itching) may temporarily occur in the area where the cream is used. This is not uncommon and should disappear in a short while.
If you experience any troublesome or unusual effects, stop using it and check with your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible. If you know that you are prone to having sensitive skin, please test just a small amount first. Keep in mind that some minor localised redness is normal with tattoo numbing cream.
